Dating and mating games
The show's was manifest when Lange -- wielding his trademark voice-with-a-smile -- would let the grilling begin by announcing "it's time to meet our three, alumni bachelors..." That small bit of Latin -- "alumni" -- dropped quickly into the middle of his sentence, was the fine print that kept the show kosher with the FCC.
From the contestants' point of view, the women actually had a better deal than the guys, simply because they were guaranteed a date, while we would get a trip only roughly one time in three (and in my case, not even that).
Jim Lange died this week, and a familiar voice is gone from the ether.
He was primarily a radio guy, but my memories of Lange will always be of his most famous on-air presence: hosting the popular network TV show aired five days a week from 1965 through the 1970s in its original incarnation.
Clearly, the demands on the bachelors were tougher than on the women who were grilling them.
Ever since the infamous quiz show scandals of the 1950s, the feds had insisted that TV game shows be honest -- or that at least they didn't cheat.
