The dating game full episodes
Mills fancied himself “as being the person who started the tradition of wearing an earring,” and felt like he would have commented on that.Mills also told LA Weekly he was surprised that Alcala won, calling him “quiet,” and “kind of good-looking but kind of creepy.” Mills said that Alcala didn’t make much eye contact but “once in a while he would spit out things then go back to his aloofness.” “He was kind of a creepy guy,” said Mills, who would go on to play the yogurt shop owner on “Seinfeld,” to LA Weekly.Authorities claimed they found earrings belonging to the ballerina Samsoe in a storage locker belonging to Alcala, but he contended that the earrings belonged to him.He claimed to wear earrings often—even on “The Dating Game.” According to LA Weekly, Bachelor Number 2, Jed Mills, didn’t recall seeing him wear any earrings.
For Alcala, she had prepared a somewhat unsettling “dirty old man” prompt.
Alcala was sentenced to death for the murder of Robin Samsoe in 1980, but appealed the conviction twice, in 19, according to The Los Angeles Times.
He spent the majority of his 2010 murder trial, where he was also being tried for the murders of Jill Barcomb, Charlotte Lamb, Jill Parenteau, and Georgia Wixted, attempting to relitigate his Samsoe conviction.
