I was just going through the motions. I was completely numb. At the time, I was dating Dennis Rodman. He was such a fun person to be around, and we went out every night. I remember thinking, this is my out. I'm just going to have fun, and I'm not going to worry about anything. I guess I was trying to cling to whatever I had. I'd lost my mom and my sister; I didn't want to lose anyone else.
We were married for about five months. When I started going through some really hard times with Dennis, I became addicted to feeling that pain instead of dealing with my feelings about my mom and sister.Carmen Electra's Dance Party in the Florida Keys #8 Stella Soleil

In case of a tie, a final question was asked to the tying contestants, such as "How many girls did Picker's name say he dated last year? The contestant who guessed the closest without going over won the date. The Reveal[ edit ] After a couple had been made, the two contestants were placed back-to-back while Hardwick read a description of the winning player to the Picker.
The contestants were then turned around to meet each other for the first time, and their trip and prizes were described to them by the announcer.
Two games were played per show, first with a woman picking from 50 single men, then with a man picking from 50 single women. The most prominent character was a scruffy, cigar-smoking cupid known as "Bob the Angel", who would sometimes appear in a series of vignettes with Hardwick and McCarthy.
Bob would be joined by a wife, Roberta, and a son, Little Bob. Other characters included Fidel Castro, or an evangelist.
These characters would often interact with the contestants during the "Keep 'Em or Dump 'Em" round, such as one male contestant being challenged to a game of tetherball against Castro. On rare occasions celebrities would appear. A female Picker claimed she was a Mel Torme fan and challenged a contestant to sing like him, only to have the real Torme come and judge his work. Books[ edit ] The show served as the basis for a book: This tie-in advice book was actually two books in one, a "His" side with Chris Hardwick on the cover and, turned over, a "Hers" side with Jenny McCarthy on the cover.
In this book, winning couples were interviewed about their dates.
