Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm was once on `Dating Game'

Video of Granholm's 1978 appearance shows up on YouTube

LANSING, Mich. - Video of former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm in a 1978 appearance on "The Dating Game" has surfaced.

A man from New York says he spotted a video of the TV show on the Facebook page of a friend who was one of the three male contestants vying for a date with the 19-year-old aspiring actress from British Columbia.


Granholm now hosts a talk show. Ex-gubernatorial spokeswoman Liz Boyd says she emailed Granholm a link to the video and spoke with her about it Thursday.

Boyd says the two of them laughed so hard they could "barely say hello to each other."
