They first sit at a chair with a large mirror behind so that they won't see the fifty people and choose from a big board what qualities (i.e. Then in the second round, the contestant asked the remaining amount of people (about seven) from the first round to do something that could be considered embarrassing.
In the final round, the remainder of the fifty people (three this time) need to answer questions in order to take one step closer to their potential date.
They generally were expressed in a humorous style, often with various pop-culture references.
After choosing a category, two or three choices were listed (for example, a category on hair might be divided into blonde, brunette, and redhead, another example (which was used on the show) would be age, and the choices would be The Dating Game, Love Connection, and of course Singled Out), and the Picker was asked to eliminate one of the choices.

Christopher Ryan Hardwick (born November 23, 1971) is an American stand-up comedian, voice actor, television host, writer, producer, podcaster, and musician.
In 2013, Hardwick hosted Talking Bad, a live half-hour talk show on AMC following the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad, and in 2016 he started to host Talking Saul for Breaking Bads spin-off, Better Call Saul.
As part of what Hardwick calls his "nerd media empire", he runs Nerdist Theater, an entertainment space at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles.
Hardwick published a self-help book, The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (In Real Life), with Penguin Publishing, in late 2011.
Continuing his bid for complete global domination, Chris Hardwick will host and executive produce a show about science and technology for NBC.
On Tuesday, the network announced it has ordered six episodes of “The Awesome Show,” which will “showcase the groundbreaking scientific and technological advances that are shaping the future.” “The opportunity to develop a primetime show that celebrates science and technology was too good to pass up," said Hardwick in a press statement.
He also has a franchise at AMC that includes “The Walking Dead” fan show “Talking Dead” and the upcoming “Talking With Chris Hardwick.”A premiere date for “The Awesome Show” has not been announced, but Hardwick should have plenty to keep him busy until then.
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.
Hardwick, who got his start hosting the MTV dating show “Singled Out” in the ’90s before establishing himself as a specialist in geek culture with his Nerdist podcast, has become a near-ubiquitous presence on the small screen in recent years.
He currently hosts two game shows, “@midnight” on Comedy Central and “The Wall” on NBC.
After eliminating a choice, all the contestants who fit that choice left the Dating Pool, in view of the Picker.
Two contestants (first a female followed by a male) have to pick one out of fifty people for a date.
