The questions were written in advance by the producers.
All three of the potential dates had their names revealed before the questioning started as well, something that wasn't done on any version of TDG prior.
During a part of the first season, in addition to asking the questions, the bachelor/bachelorette got to see all three contestants at the outset of the game (who all had headphones on so they couldn't hear what their potential date was saying about them), and would pick who they thought was the best looking of the bunch.
Sometimes the guy chosen would be the one chosen for both looks & personality; in later shows when that happened he/she won a 0 bonus in addition to the trip.
This format was mostly disliked by fans of the original show so the next year they switched back to its original format and theme with new host Chuck Woolery at the helm (although now the game featured bachelors questioning bachelorrettes more often than the original version).
