The Dating Game (also known as The New Dating Game and The All-New Dating Game) is the long-running dating game show where one girl or one guy had to choose between three bachelors or bachelorettes to go out on a date for which the producers pay.
Generally the bachelorette would ask a series of questions to each of the three hidden bachelors.
After that, the question round was conducted in its usual fashion, with the bachelor/bachelorette picking who they thought had the best personality out of the three.
After the choices were made, the contestant was then prompted to choose between their choice for best looking or best personality.
