Celebrities Who Appeared on ‘The Dating Game’ Before They Became Really Famous

I Did Not Know That took a nostalgic look at the classic game show The Dating Game, noting how many celebrities appeared as eligible bachelors or bachelorettes before they became really famous.

For those too young to remember there was a unique TV show way back in the 60s and the 70s that tried to get single people together. It was simply called The Dating Game… a bachelorette [or bachelor] would get to ask three members of the opposite sex some questions. … Let’s take a look at clips of some individuals who were famous at the time or one day would become famous who appeared on The Dating Game.

Celebrities included Tom Selleck, Farrah Fawcett, Phil Hartman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Burt Reynolds, and HR Pufnstuf. Groucho Marx also appeared on an episode where he hilariously questioned three bachelors for his daughter Melinda.
