A dating show in which contestants select prospective mates from the audience.
Original cohost Jenny Mc Carthy was quite the cutup, making funny faces and generally manhandling the male singles.
After eliminating a choice, all the contestants who fit that choice left the Dating Pool, in view of the Picker.
This process was continued until 5 to 8 potentials were left, at which point they advanced to the next round.
And now, your host, a man who (insert funny comment here), CHRIS HARDWICK!
And I bet 98/100 psychos are just waiting to go crazy/(insert idiom to go crazy or nuts) on MTV'S SINGLED OUT!
That contestant was escorted to a chair in front of a large mirror with the show's title on it. The object of this round was to narrow the playing field down to 5 to 8 potential dates.
And here's how it works: The Picker was presented with a board showing six categories, which ranged from physical attributes to preferences in love-making to leisure activities.The first finalist to reach the winner's circle where the Picker is standing won the date with him/her.If there's a tie (two or all three finalsts made it), one final question with a numerical answer was asked to the tying contestants, such as "How many girls did (Picker's name) say he dated last year?If the Picker was happy with the answer or performance, he/she would "keep" the contestant, advancing them to the final round; if not, he/she would decide to "dump" the contestant, knocking him/her out of the game."Dumped" contestants were not shown to the Picker as in the first round, but were instead marked with some sort of prop, such as a toilet seat around the neck, a bag with a sad face on it on the male player's head, or a pageant sash labeled "Dumped".In the third season, a "Golden Ticket" was introduced, which gave the Picker the power to save one eliminated player as he/she walked in front of him on the way out of the studio.
