The concept for this 2004 reality series involved 10 bachelors trying to succeed on the Auckland dating scene, while overcoming specially set challenges.Hosted by model Nicky Watson, and produced by Touchdown supremo Julie Christie, this first episode sees Watson pick the 10 (from 15 who began) who will move into the bachelor pad. So you’re sitting here trying to pick out that one Victoria and you’re saying Veronica.” Kelce also talked a little football during his chat with Gottlieb, as the Chiefs had quite a season last year. “When you originally hear ‘dating TV reality show,’ you don’t just jump at it. I feel like a lot of NFL players, a lot of guys in the league, are trying to get out from under the helmet. I know there’s a lot of guys that would jump at the bit to date 50 women on TV.” That’s right. “The hardest part was that there was like three of them named Veronica and then there was one named Victoria. Everybody wants to present that awesome image for everybody watching, and that’s part of the difficulty.

Each episode helped one man or woman find a date with eligible contestants. The potential partners were hidden out of sight behind a board while the eligible bachelor or bachelorette made decisions based solely on their answers and voices.

Travis Kelce dropped by CBS Sports Radio’s The Doug Gottlieb Show on Tuesday to discuss his new dating series, “Catching Kelce,” which premiers October 5 on E! “It doesn’t make sense,” said Kelce, who had 72 catches for 875 yards and five touchdowns last season. That ripped the heart out of all of us, but it put accountability even more so on everybody else.

They lost Jamaal Charles to a torn ACL in Week 5 and started 1-5 – only to win their final 10 games of the regular season and make the playoffs.

The idea was to test the couples' commitment to each other when there was so much temptation — get it? It was controversial before the first episode even aired, which helped drive up ratings in its first season.

In the following years, several shows would take notes from this dramatic dating game.

By the time the show ended in 1999 after four separate runs, the game had become iconic, and was parodied on comedy shows like "Saturday Night Live" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." It started out the same as "The Dating Game," but then sent the couples on epic first dates where they would finally meet one another.
