Of course, plenty of these couples did not end up clicking romantically. But in at least one instance, a Dating Game contestant ended up picking a serial killer. The September 13, episode of The Dating Game was much like the other episodes. Like usual, there was a lot of unsubtle and uncomfortable innuendo. At the end of the game, Bradshaw picked Bachelor Number One, who turned out to be a long-haired man in his mids named Rodney Alcala.
He was paroled after less than three years, and by the time Bradshaw met him on The Dating Game , he had already murdered four women. But when Bradshaw went backstage with him, she said something changed. I didn't want to see him again. Before the show, Alcala had unsettled at least one of the other contestants. I could have been one of the dead girls. Timeline of Alcala's murder spree shown in the courtroom during his trial in Alcala is now in prison for the murder of several women and a year-old girl, although investigators believe the real number of murders he committed could be in the dozens.
He was charged with murder for the first time in for the death of year-old Robin Samsoe, who disappeared in June that year on her way to a ballet studio. Alcala appeared on a episode of the hit TV game show. What are you called and what do you look like? Bradshaw ended up choosing Alcala at the end of the show. It was exactly what Alcala had planned, according to fellow contestant Jed Mills, who was Bachelor Number Two and sat next to Alcala during the episode.
I am not comfortable. Is that going to be a problem? By the time that Alcala was convicted of murdering Robin Samsoe in and sentenced to death, investigators had found a trove of evidence in a Seattle storage locker belonging to Alcala.
There they found hundreds of photographs of unidentified women, girls and boys, some of whom were nude or in compromising positions. They also found jewelry that they believe Alcala kept as trophies from some of his victims, including a pair of gold ball earrings that matched the description of those worn by Robin on the day she disappeared. Four years after he was convicted of murder and sentenced to death, Alcala appealed his case and won a new trial.
He was tried, convicted and sentenced to death a second time. Prosecutor Matt Murphy took on the case in , after which he had the jewelry found in Alcala's storage locker re-examined for DNA. He was also charged in with the murder of Christine Thornton in the summer of , but authorities decided not to extradite him to Wyoming for trial due to his failing health.
He has denied killing Thornton and has not entered a plea for the charges. Alcala, now 77, is serving his time at Corcoran State Prison, where his execution has been postponed indefinitely due to a moratorium on the death penalty instituted by California State in
After the choices were made, the contestant was then prompted to choose between their choice for best looking or best personality. This format was mostly disliked by fans of the original show so the next year they switched back to its original format and theme with new host Chuck Woolery at the helm although now the game featured bachelors questioning bachelorrettes more often than the original version.
In , according to an article from The Hollywood Reporter  the network has taped comediennes Kim Coles who previously hosted Pay it Off for BET and Judy Gold respectively to host pilots of this show along with its sister show The Newlywed Game even though for this show they already had a female host with Elaine Joyce in until as they would incorporate modern elements like online dating sites.
