The Year: 1971
The Show: The Dating Game
The Celebrity Up for Grabs: Ron Howard
The Contestant: Debbie Thureson

She only got a little face time though because Mr. Howard didn’t pick the lovely Thureson. However, Dating Game host Jim Lange was impressed with her “super answers.” Perhaps she should have dated him? I mean, he is better than a charred gypsy, right?
