The Newlywed Game, by contrast, another Barris show, had recently married couples competing to answer questions about each other's preferences.
In July 2014, VH1 aired Dating Naked, modeled on Dutch show Adam Zkt.
The first dating show to regularly incorporate bisexual contestants was MTV series A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, which included both male and female contestants vying for the affections of the show's star, internet star Tila Tequila, who is bisexual.
By the late 1990s and early 2000s, a new wave of dating shows began airing in U. syndication that were more sexually suggestive than their earlier counterparts, including shows such as Blind Date, Elimidate and The 5th Wheel, which often pushed boundaries of sexual content allowed on broadcast television.
Attempts to revive the dating show in syndication first came in 2011, when Excused and Who Wants to Date a Comedian?
both debuted; this was followed in 2012 by NBCUniversal Television Distribution's sale of reruns of the Game Show Network series Baggage into syndication.
