The dating game creepypasta
For the first season of the 1996 revival, The Dating Game used a different format.
A notable change was that the prospective bachelor/bachelorette knew what the first names of his or her potential dates were at all times.
ABC dropped the show on July 6, 1973, but it continued in syndication for another year (1973–1974) as The New Dating Game.
The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.
The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.
Occasionally, the contestant was a bachelor who would ask questions to three bachelorettes.

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.
Play continued until time expired, after which the bachelor/bachelorette gave their choice.
