The statement round was used to determine the "personality" portion.
After the game ended the bachelor/bachelorette chose one panelist based on looks and one based on personality, then was prompted to choose either of the two.
The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.
When the show was revived with a different format in 1996, Brad Sherwood was named as its host.
Before becoming famous, Farrah Fawcett, Suzanne Somers, Yvonne Craig, Lindsay Wagner, Leif Garrett, Tom Selleck and Lee Majors appeared as contestants on the show in the 1960s and early 1970s.
Other contestants who appeared before becoming famous included The Carpenters, Jackson Bostwick, Michael Richards, Joanna Cameron, Andy Kaufman (who went under the pseudonym Baji Kimran), Steve Martin, Burt Reynolds, John Ritter, Phil Hartman, Jennifer Granholm (Governor of Michigan from 2003–2010), Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Alex Kozinski.
The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.
Occasionally, the contestant was a bachelor who would ask questions to three bachelorettes.
Occasionally, the roles would be reversed with a man questioning three ladies; other times, a celebrity would question three players for a date for themselves or for a co-worker or a relative of theirs.
One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
Generally the bachelorette would ask questions written in advance on cards to each of the three hidden bachelors.
Instead of asking questions of their potential date, the bachelor/bachelorette was presented with two pun-laden statements, each pertaining to one of the potential dates.
When chosen, a new statement replaced the old statement and the potential date explained the reason why that fact pertained to them.
