Hosts announced for The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game
This marks the first time The Newlywed Game will have a female host. Hosts of previous incarnations have included Bob Eubanks (who hosted most of the show's incarnations), Jim Lange, Paul Rodriguez and Gary Kroeger. The Dating Game has had a previous female host in Elaine Joyce. Other hosts for that show have included Jim Lange, Jeff MacGregor, Brad Sherwood and Chuck Woolery.
GSN Senior VP Programming Jamie Roberts said the network was looking for "unusual candidates to take these shows and reinvent them."
The original versions of these game shows were known for their sexually suggestive humor. The new versions will incorporate modern concepts such as online dating sites. Having both of these relationship-based game shows hosted by comedic women will create an interesting spin that might be fun to watch.
