According to CNN, back in 1978 a serial killer was a contestant on The Dating Game--and won.
If Alcala appeared likable to viewers at home, Mills said he was the complete opposite when they sat together in the show's green room, where the show's contestants waited before going on air.
"He was quiet, but at the same time he would interrupt and impose when he felt like it," Mills said. "And he was very obnoxious and creepy -- he became very unlikable and rude and imposing as though he was trying to intimidate. I wound up not only not liking this guy ... not wanting to be near him ... he got creepier and more negative. He was a standout creepy guy in my life."
Within months of his "Dating Game" appearance, Alcala would become a killer.
An extremely creepy, true-life story for this fine Tuesday morning.
