Actors including Taye Diggs, Joey Lawrence and Carmen Electra, and comedians Margaret Cho, Chris Kattan and Gabriel Iglesias, are among the stars looking for love in the game that lets you get to know blind dates with saucy questions. As before, the celebrities' identities are kept secret from their prospects until the potential pair meet.
The contestants are given clues in the form of songs, performed by Bolton. The following week, rapper Iggy Azalea picks among a trio of bachelors she can't see, as does "RuPaul's Drag Race" judge Carson Kressley, a fan of the series who's excited by the prospect of providing a jolt to his "nonexistent" love life.
If you could come up with your own triathlon, what three activities would you combine to ensure you would win? How successful are you? And while the celebrity and the winning contestant aren't required to go on a date, Kressley says he thought to himself: "Oh, no.
I flew all the way out here. I'm going to meet somebody, and we're going to have an actual date. Kressley jokes that he thought about choosing someone else after being so in awe of his clue song, performed to Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing.
Bolton's spoofed hits — in which he sings modified lyrics infused with tips to the stars' identities —are one of the most enjoyable aspects of the show. For Brown, Bolton borrows the tune of "I Found Someone," referencing that infamous windmill where she and Peter Weber had sex four times during her "Bachelorette" season.
Hannah Brown reveals what really happened in windmill with Peter. Chris Harrison, host of the 'Bachelor' franchise, exits after racism controversy.
But singing is what hooked the "Dating Game" fan on the new version of the game show, which last aired in "I thought, comedy and music, that's the winning combination for me. Deschanel compares the show to a sweet treat: "I would say it's just super fun, like cotton candy. She says the fact that "people are trying to guess the celebrity is a really fun element to add, because there's a lot of excitement on the part of the contestants.
They're like, 'Oh my gosh! I'm gonna go on a date with a celebrity! Who's it gonna be?
