Jennifer Granholm about her enthusiastic speech to the Democratic National Convention may shift this week as a long-lost copy of her 1978 appearance on “The Dating Game” surfaced on You Tube.
“Let’s give a hand for the cute and curvaceous Jennifer Granholm,” the show’s host, Jim Lange says as a 19-year-old Granholm, complete with big, blonde, Farrah Fawcett-like hair comes on stage to meet her three bachelors. Y., told the Free Press he came across the footage on the Facebook page of a friend who was one of the losing contestants on the show with Granholm.
The questions were written in advance by the producers.
The Dating Game (also known as The New Dating Game and The All-New Dating Game) is the long-running dating game show where one girl or one guy had to choose between three bachelors or bachelorettes to go out on a date for which the producers pay.
Generally the bachelorette would ask a series of questions to each of the three hidden bachelors.
Some of the questions she asked the “bachelors” included, “What was the most famous girl you ever dated famous for?
” And “What form of transportation should all girls be built like and why?
The questions were all framed provocatively, with plenty of opportunity for a naughty answer. In the years since the show aired, some fascinating names came up on You Tube’s radar — of on-the-prowl singles who would one day make a name for themselves.
