Be sure the students understand how the game works. Select four students to participate in the activity at a time.
One student will be the interviewer and the other three will be the contestants who want a date. The contestants should each introduce themselves like the real contestants on the show, telling a little bit about themselves or what they think a 'perfect date' would be. The interviewer randomly selects a slip with a dating-related question on it, and reads it aloud. Don't go through the whole game as they did on the television show; you don't want the interviewer to actually have to select one of the contestants. When all the students have had a chance to participate, end the game.
