“What was the strangest place you’ve ever made whoopee?
” was one of host Bob Eubanks’ favorite questions, almost always prompting at least one (unintentionally) hilarious response.
” After receiving responses like “the bathroom of a 747” and “the kitchen table,” Bob Eubanks comes to a “not-too-literate” [black] lady who, after a lengthy deliberation, states “It be the butt, Bob”.
The Newlywed Game, a game show in which newly-married husbands and wives were separately asked the same questions and had to predict how their spouses would answer, was a staple of American television for over twenty years.
The humor was usually found in the answers that the young bachelors would give.
(Don’t feel left out ladies, they would occasionally turn the tables and have one bachelor asking the questions to three bachelorettes).
Over the years this question featured in one of the most hotly-debated items in urban legendry: whether a contestant responded to this question with the answer, “That’d be up the butt, Bob.” Legions of television viewers swore they saw this event, and opposing legions of pundits insisted that the whole thing was merely a joke and no such exchange ever took place on a broadcast Newlywed Game episode.
Among this latter group was host Bob Eubanks himself, who repeatedly denied that any such occurrence had taken place on his show (and offered a ,000 reward to anyone who can prove it did): Eventually a Newlywed Game clip, from a Game Show Network rebroadcast of the show, came to light that documented the (true) origin of this legend.
Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show.
The only questions that weren’t allowed were name, occupation, income or age.
Nothing was supposedly scripted but I’m pretty sure that a least the celebrity guest stars got some warning what the questions might be and even some “helpful” words from the writers.
Sometimes still photos of “the date” would be shown during a later show.
The ending of the show always had the host (Jim Lange) and the and winning contestants blowing a big kiss to the camera.
