The dating game show subgenre has its origins in the United States.The original dating game shows were introduced by television producer Chuck Barris.This creates the action, tension and humiliation when someone is rejected.There are also reports of mercenary practice, that is, members of one sex paid to participate in the game to attain balance of sex ratio.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.A completely new type of dating show merged the format with the reality game show and produced shows where the emphasis was on realistic actions and tensions, but which used less realistic scenarios than the traditional blind date: Some common threads run through these shows.

But any social situation has the potential to result in romance, especially work.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.Variations featuring LGBT contestants began to appear on a few specialty channels.Other shows focused on the conventional blind date, where two people were set up and then captured on video, sometimes with comments or subtitles that made fun of their dating behaviour.
