Palin on dating game

30 Jan

Sometimes the process was switched, with a male questioning three females.

But in all cases, the questions were designed by the show's writers to elicit sexy answers.

But a psychopath's true nature comes seeping through.

There were already four bodies to his name when he popped up on national TV, smiling with perfect hair.

Rodney Alcala, one of the most infamous serial killers in U. history, would eventually be arrested and sentenced to death in 1980 for the murder of 12-year-old Robin Samsoe.

(He remains in prison in California.) While Alcala's body count is unknown, police estimate the now-73-year-old man killed at least dozens of women, with some counts running as high as 130 – and there are still over 100 photographs of unidentified women who may have been his victims.

According to the National Enquirer, the couple's growing relationship sparked the idea for the show - and Mrs Palin isn't happy about it.

She is apparently convinced it will affect her family's reputation, as Bristol is on the rebound from her ex-boyfriend, Alaskan pipeline worker Gino Paoletti.

A source told the magazine: 'Sarah is furious at Bristol for going so quickly from man to man.

Alcala, who already had been convicted for the 1968 rape of an 8-year-old girl, was the first contestant to be introduced in the game-show episode. 1 is a successful photographer who got his start when his father found him in the dark room at the age of 13, fully developed," host Jim Lange said.

If Alcala appeared likable to viewers at home, Mills said he was the complete opposite when they sat together in the show's green room, where the show's contestants waited before going on air. He was a standout creepy guy in my life." Within months of his "Dating Game" appearance, Alcala would become a killer, prosecutors said, abducting and murdering a 12-year-old girl in 1979.

"Between takes you might find him skydiving or motor-cycling. "Something about him, I could not be near him," Mills recalled. "He was quiet, but at the same time he would interrupt and impose when he felt like it," Mills said. Before the decade was over, Alcala would claim four more victims, according to testimony at his trial.

Barris made game show history right off the bat, in 1966, with "The Dating Game," hosted by Jim Lange.

The gimmick: a young female questions three males, hidden from her view, to determine which would be the best date.
