The format of Barris's first dating show, The Dating Game, which commenced in 1965, put an unmarried man behind a screen to ask questions of three women who are potential mates, or one woman who asked questions of three men.The person behind the screen could hear their answers and voices but not see them during the gameplay, although the audience could see the contestants.The audience sees only the game; an important feature of all dating game shows is that the contestants have little or no previous knowledge of each other, and are exposed to each other only through the game, which may include viewing a photograph or at least knowing the basic criteria for participation (typically participants are not already married).There have been a number of dating shows aired on television over the years, using a variety of formats and rules.The various suitors were able to describe their rivals in uncomplimentary ways, which made the show work well as a general devolution of dignity.Questions were often obviously rigged to get ridiculous responses, or be obvious allusions to features of the participants' private areas.

One by one, the suitors are eliminated until the heartthrob chooses one ideal man to sweep him off of his feet and commit to an exclusive relationship.
