Jim Lange, host of TV classic “The Dating Game,” has died of a heart attack. He was 81.DatingGame3JimLange

Lange was a huge presence on the show … which pitted 3 bachelors against each other to impress a girl … and the end game was a date. Lange was spectacularly charming and very funny.


Among the bachelors who appeared on the show — Michael Jackson, Steve Martin and Arnold Schwarzenegger. And get this … Farrah Fawcett was one of the girls who had to choose, and she was intro’d as “an accomplished artist and sculptress.” source

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Lange’s family and friends at this difficult time.
