Love is blind in the original dating format.
Since its debut in 1965, The Dating Game remains one of the leading dating shows of all time, airing in 34 countries and bringing countless couples and cultures together. This iconic format starts with the wall, dividing the love-struck ‘picker’ from three potential suitors on the other side. After some cheeky back and forth, but without getting to meet the mates, our hopeful singleton picks a partner and the divider is rolled back – will it be love at first sight, or will this match miss the mark?
This timeless format is also available with the perfect, primetime casting twist as The Celebrity Dating Game! This version offers a wry wink at modern dating with a star-studded roster of celebrity singles from television, music, comedy, reality TV and feature film in their pursuit to find love. The celebrity identities remain a mystery to their suitors, who try to guess based on clues, questions and hints provided by the host throughout the show.
With a little conversation and a few leading questions, this classic mega-hit puts the fun back into dating!
