One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.

The Dating Game was hosted by Jim Lange from its debut on ABC until the late 1970s syndicated series went off the air.

Jim Lange, fresh from his announcing duties with Tennessee Ernie Ford stepped through the flower-speckled rotating partitions for the first of many, many times shortly before Christmas 1965. On one side you had 3 bachelors answering questions from a girl on the other side of the partition (each not being able to see the other).

The girl was given a certain amount of time to ask as many questions as she could to the 3 bachelors.

The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.

When the show was revived with a different format in 1996, Brad Sherwood was named as its host.

Many celebrities played the game looking for love themselves.

The pre-stardom Farrah Fawcett, Suzanne Somers, Lindsay Wagner, Tom Selleck and Lee Majors appeared as "contestants" on the show in the 1960s and early 1970s.

More often than not the questions would be of a quirky nature. G.: "If we were marooned on a desert island, what would be the first thing you'd do and why? During a commercial break, the girl would think about which bachelor she'd select.

When the show returned, Jim would have her announce her choice.
