Sex chat room amsterdam - Chuck lorre dating game

It was in the late 60’s, I was in high school, and someone recommended I try out for THE DATING GAME. Three bachelors would be asked inane questions by a girl who couldn't see them and based on the answers she'd select one for her "date". The first thing I said when I got there was that my father worked for ABC radio and if that was a conflict let me know now and save us all a lot of time and trouble. In fact, they said members of their own staff have had to go on in emergency cases. They put 40 of us in a room and asked us random DATING GAME-type questions. So I called the show, was given an appointment to audition.

We were briefed, then ushered to the stage for a rehearsal. Got some good questions, had some funny answers, called one of the other bachelors a blimp, just wreaked as much comic havoc as I could. As a result I missed getting to go on a little cruise boat around the Newport Beach harbor with the Turtles.

They walked us through it, where we sat, what to do after the girl made her selection, etc. (I’ve since become friends with Howard Kaylan and he can’t even remember that event).

Then it was back to this waiting room until we were called for the show. Two days after the show aired I got invited to go on again for their alumni show. I just remember doing an Elvis impression and trashing the institution of marriage. Instead I went home with 50 pairs of Ray-Ban sunglasses or something useless like that. A few years later when I was working as an intern at KMPC radio in Los Angeles. He spotted me down the hall and amazingly, remembered me. Two days later at the station I get a call from THE DATING GAME.

I think the date I missed was to the Lancaster Date Festival. After that show aired they invited me to be on the night-time version. Winners got trips to Europe and Hawaii, not Orange County. I was bumped from the show, they grabbed a guy in the audience who was wearing a suit, and he went on in my place.

Oh yeah, and you’d be on national primetime television… Unfortunately, there was an engineers’ strike at ABC at the time and management had to man the cameras. I said, “But what about when your own staff has to sub…?

During the rehearsal, one of the cameramen recognized me and mentioned casually that my father worked for ABC radio.

Tired of being rejected by the beautiful women he lusts after, Chuck Barris (Rockwell) moves to Manhattan to become an NBC page with dreams of becoming famous in television but is eventually fired.

He moves back to Philadelphia and becomes Dick Clark's personal assistant on American Bandstand in 1961.

He writes the successful song "Palisades Park" and becomes romantically involved with a woman named Penny Pacino (Barrymore).

Chuck is given permission to pitch the concept for The Dating Game at the American Broadcasting Company (ABC); he receives ,500 to create a television pilot for the studio.

However, ABC abandons The Dating Game in favor of Hootenanny.
