Dating game show of the 1990s
In a sort of creepy voice, Hamm offered her a cheesy evening of “fabulous food, fabulous conversation with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity.” Instead, Carter chose Marc, a stuntman who promised to show her his “flexibility.” That was that. Is she kicking herself for not going out on a date with Jon. “I didn’t even know he was on the show,” Sandler told Salon over the phone.“I know who he is, I know what the show is, but I’ve never seen an episode.” When asked if she’s going to watch “Mad Men” after this, Sandler said, “Um, no. She realized that she has, “like 18 double chins in that show,” but she’s excited that the clip is going viral.
She also has no regrets about how her love life turned out.
On occasion, the role would be reversed (one bachelor, three bachelorettes).
Syndicated revivals were moderated by Elaine Joyce, Jeff Mac Gregor, Brad Sherwood, and Chuck Woolery.
An amazing clip from “The Big Date” in 1996 has surfaced on the Internet, in which two women passed over a chance to date “Mad Men” actor Jon Hamm.
At the time, Hamm was a waiter with a bowl haircut who was just “trying to hook up with a member of the opposite sex,” as host Mark L. His only chance to prove himself a worthy suitor on the show was when peacocking for 25-year-old actress and computer animation student Mary Carter, who stated she had a foot fetish.

This is the original reality TV — average Joes and Janes trying to outwit, outplay and outlast their competitors. Let's X out the memory of the ill-conceived '90s revival with Whoopi Goldberg.
From serial kisser Richard Dawson to wisecracker Steve Harvey (with Louie Anderson, John O'Hurley, Richard Karn and Ray Combs in between), Whenever Gene Rayburn (and his patented extralong, superslim microphone) engaged in shamelessly hilarious double entendres about Dumb Dora or Donald with smart-ass panelists like Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly, we laughed our blanks off. They said the game show was dead — and then came Regis Philbin.
Her choices are a “Greenpeace supporter”, an accounts clerk, and a welder who likes to work out.
Watch out for Suzanne Paul as one of the show's later suitors, who gets laughs for making clear the romantic impact of a well-built wallet.
