Lost Video of Jennifer Granholm on The Dating Game Surfaces
She gave a memorable speech at the recent Democratic National Convention. Some called it over-the-top. Others said former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm fired up the crowd.
But now, Jennifer Granholm can be remembered for something else.
Can you believe the ex-governor was once a contestant on The Dating Game? That's right. A 19-year-old Granholm, then an aspiring actress, was introduced as "curvey and cute" and looked every inch a bombshell, 1970's style, with tight jeans, suspenders and big Farrah Fawcett hair.
INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney spoke with Granholm and asked, "What was your reaction when the video resurfaced?"
"I was totally mortified. Really, I thought that this was going to be something that would be stayed, buried, sealed, locked in a vault," said Granholm.
The perky Granholm played along with gusto, enthusiastically asking the sexually suggestive questions the show was famous for.
Granholm would go from The Dating Game to college at Berkeley, then Harvard for a law degree. She served two terms as Governor of Michigan and now hosts The War Room with Jennifer Granholm on Al Gore's television network, Current TV.
McInerney said, "You talked about not just having a bad hair day. Tell me what you described it as."
"It was really, for me, it was a bad hair decade, and maybe it was even a bad hair couple of decades," laughed Granholm.
Granholm had a plea to the guy who posted the clip, saying, "Hey, take it down. But it's too late now, unfortunately."
