Before extreme dating shows like The Bachelor took romance-related game shows to the next level, there was the flirty, innocent fun of The Dating Game. The popular dating show premiered in 1965 and typically ran back-to-back with The Newlywed Game, providing a solidd block of gawking as earnest singles would try to relate and win dates.

Celebrities turned up often on The Dating Game, sometimes as a guest star (like Michael Jackson or Ann B. Davis) and other times, as young unknowns on the cusp of their later fame (like Farrah Fawcett and John Ritter).

Below, we've gone back through some of our favorite celebrity appearances on The Dating Game in the '60s and '70s and recreated the match-ups to see if you can tell who these bachelors and bachelorettes chose in the end.
