This 80’s New Zealand Dating Show is Comedic Genius

Dating shows have evolved quite a bit since the 60s and 70s.  You had your “Newlywed Game” type shows back in the day.  You had your “Love Connection” show with Chuck Woolery.  That was a classic.  Then you had your “Blind Dates” and “Studs” of the world.   Today dating shows come more in the form of reality shows like The Bachelor or even anything on MTV.    Even Catfish could be considered a dating show if we’re going by technicalities.

But in the in history of dating shows I think the “Dating Game” format was always the best.  This is where you had a woman or man asking questions to a group of three contestants and each one had to come up with a witty answer on the fly to win the affection of the person asking the questions.  When you think about it, this is not an easy task for the contestant.  You really have to be on your game and in front of a live audience no less.

Turns out there was a dating game type show in New Zealand in the 80s and when it comes to creative answers these contestants had very little to be desired. Though back then I’m sure it was pretty funny.   Like this guy up top with the teeth.  He’s pretty awesome.
