In the case the bachelor/bachelorette chose the same person for both looks and personality, they won a cash prize of 0.
The ABC daytime episodes are believed to have been erased after broadcast, as was the standard practice with network daytime programs prior to the late 1970s.
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.
Certain kinds of questions were "off-limits", such as name, age, occupation, and income.
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.
This format saw the players choose a potential date based on how good they looked and another based on personality.
The program was originally broadcast in black-and-white, but when a prime-time version began in October 1966, both it and the daytime version were broadcast in color; the daytime version thus became the first ABC daytime series to be broadcast in color on a regular basis.
The statement round was used to determine the "personality" portion.
After the game ended the bachelor/bachelorette chose one panelist based on looks and one based on personality, then was prompted to choose either of the two.
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.
