‘Dating Game’ host dies at 81

Jim Lange, the host of the “Dating Game” TV show, died on Tuesday at his home in California at the age of 81 after suffering a heart attack, his wife said on Tuesday.

Lange, who was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, worked in radio and as a disc jockey before joining the “Dating Game”. Contestants on the show, which debuted in 1965, chose a date from three candidates after asking a series of questions. Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Steve Martin were among the celebrity contestants who appeared.

Lange also hosted other game shows including “$100,000 Name That Tune.”
