Singled out dating show
Each episode had 100 people (50 men & 50 women), all vying to win the hearts of one member of the opposite sex. Singled Out was the MTV dating game show where one guy & one gal try to find a date from a group of 50 single men & women.The mirror was taken away from behind the Picker to reveal a walkway with five spaces behind him/her.The three finalists were now given nicknames and stood at the back step for this round.
If there was a tie (two or all three finalsts made it), one final question with a numerical answer was asked to the tying contestants, such as "How many girls did (Picker's name) say he dated last year?After eliminating a choice, all the contestants who fit that choice left the Dating Pool, in view of the Picker.This process was continued until 5 to 8 potentials were left, at which point they advanced to the next round. Hosted by Chris Hardwick and Jenny Mc Carthy (later replaced by Carmen Electra), the show centered on a single woman choosing a date from among 50 young men, and a single man then taking his turn with 50 women.As with its predecessor, the winning couple was set up on a date after the show.The "Picker" would then "Keep" the candidate or "Dump" him or her.The three who survived this would then be asked questions with two possible answers; for each one that matched the Picker's, a candidate would move one step closer to the Picker.For episodes taped outside, the "Golden Ticket" was replaced with a "Golden Lifesaver", though the same rules applied.In this round after the female hostess spoke with the survivors of the first round, the Picker asked a series of questions to those players.Whoever reached the Picker first won the date; in the event of a tie, Hardwick would ask a "closest without going over" question to break it. To start, one contestant, called "The Picker", walked onto the set in front of the contestants in the "Dating Pool" while blindfolded just so he/she wouldn't see.
