When the original format returned to the syndicated revival in 1997, these rules were readopted but there was more of a variety between bachelors and bachelorettes.
For the first season of the 1996 revival, The Dating Game used a different format.
The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.
Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show.Jim Lange hosted The Dating Game for its entire ABC network run and the 19 syndicated editions.The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.Generally the bachelorette would ask questions written in advance on cards to each of the three hidden bachelors.The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.
