In each game, the featured contestant, or "Picker", would eliminate undesired dates using six categories ranging from the innocuous (height, weight) to the blatantly sexual ("Bedroom Behavior", "Package"). Once eight or fewer remained, the Picker would start individually asking them ''Dating Game''-style questions, having them perform certain tasks, or both. The "Picker" would then "Keep" or "Dump" each candidate based on their answers or performance. The three who survived this would then be asked questions with two possible answers; for each one that matched the Picker's, a candidate would move one step closer to the Picker. Whoever reached the Picker first won the date; in the event of a tie, Hardwick would ask a "[[Series/ThePriceIsRight closest without going over]]" question to break it.
