‘Awful’ memories of her time on The Dating Game are shared by Room 222 star Karen Valentine.

Karen Valentine remembers the difficult journey that got her to her acclaimed position as a student turned teacher in the popular television series Room 222.

Contrary to her time on The Dating Game, which she says was an “awful” experience with no love lost, the show that launched her into fame is a love she still cherishes.

Celebrities, including Suzanne Somers, Tom Selleck, Leif Garret, and Farrah Fawcett, participated in the first dating reality show, The Dating Game, before they were well-known. The show also served as a launching pad for upcoming actors.
