LANSING, MI - It has been known for years that former Gov. Jennifer Granholm appeared on "The Dating Game" in 1978.
Now, you can watch it below.
After Granholm's fiery speech to the Democratic National Convention last week - which some have called her Howard Dean moment - a video has surfaced on YouTube of her on the dating show.
She has puffy hair - lots of it - wears tight jeans and suspenders, and asks questions of the three bachelors like "What was the most famous girl you ever dated famous for?"
The host says she hails from British Columbia, is multi-talented, works in public relations and enjoys the arts, theater and the great outdoors. He also welcomes her as "the cute and curvaceous Jennifer Granholm."

Egads - If I were one of the batchelors on that show and saw that, I’d turn gay.
Thought you might find this interesting.
Man, the seventies were a horrible time in our history. Was she considered hot back then?!?!
What? Did she just get off her shift at the lumber mill?
That was a long time ago and I was only 14 in 78 so its hard to say what I considered hot back then.
Yeah, well...I know what LAZ would do!
Me too, exactly. I do remember thinking Valerie Bertinelli was smoking back then. And Barbi Benton.
The 70s were absolutely horrid ~ but I guess it helps you make a serious overbite disappear.
I actually like thick big hair over that Marcia Brady part in the middle blah look many women wear today.
Barbi Benton WAS hot!!!!!!
She would have been considered to be quite hot in the seventies.
Hair styles change. And we get to suffer when the grandkids pick up the album and take a look. Good entertainment on a rainy day.
On the other hand I wonder how many grandkids have picked up an album and wondered who that young lady in the string bikini was?
“Oh it’s your grandma”.
“No...that can’t be her”.
The Pez dispenser from hell
I too was 14 in 78 and Farrah Fawcett was the hottest thing on the planet at that time.
“Egads - If I were one of the batchelors on that show and saw that, Id turn gay.”
Your letting what she became politically color what you saw in the video. Dang, she is hot in the video! And yes, the big hair was sexy then, for anyone who didn’t live thru the 70’s. But it shows that we all get old and ugly don’t we!!
That’s not a particularly flattering picture of Ms. Benton.
Well, since his name has been brought into the conversation we might as well hear directly from him.
The 70s were not kind to style, were they?
Hey, she’s the PRETTIEST of all the Democrat women! And the most SANE!
I always say to women attacking old hair styles, “do you think what hairstyle you are wearing NOW won’t be mocked 10-15 years from now.”
Women are odd...they attack old photographs of themselves and say “oooo what were we thinking?”
Men look at old photos of themselves when they had mustaches, mullets, long hair, and look proudly of the good times they had...and they say to themselves “well, mullets were in style at the time...I was wearing my hair the way all my friends wore it. Man, I was so skinny then. Wish I still looked like that.”
Women should stop beating themselves up and take their old style for what they were: fashionable for the time.
I was thinking along the lines of HeeHaw.............
Didn’t she get her warts removed when she got her own TV show? My Michigan friends used to call her “old wart face.”
Buck Melanoma, Moley Russell’s Wart...
“I too was 14 in 78 and Farrah Fawcett was the hottest thing on the planet at that time.”
She still is if only in print. Farah’s red swimming suit poster is still a top seller. I have seen it posted in 15 year old’s rooms.
Boy, you could hang your keys on that wart!
She must have been a Robin Williams fan.
But Thank God, she is not eligible to become President of the US. She screwed up Michigan so badly that I am afraid what she would do to the country. Probably as bad as the Bamster himself or maybe even worse.
Back then, I’d ve screwed some sense into her head (like righty tighty...) heh, heh.
OK, it’s not news, but it’s Friday and we’re in Michigan—we can all use a good laugh. Release the ping!!!
By the picture in #9 the warts came back.
LOL. One thing hasn’t changed. She’s got her mouth open. The world would be a better place if she learned to keep it shut a little more.
Who knew she’d grow up to become such a good job-destroyer?
You youngun’s may laugh at our pics from that time but at least the women were women and the guys were guys. Every generation has their style. We may have had big hair but we also wore hats and gloves. Beehives came into fashion as well as hot pants and very, very short skirts during my time as a young adult.
Life was so different then, particularly in flyover country. Women wore stockings and skirts or dresses to work - no slacks or pants of any kind and only farmers wore anything denim. We didn’t have microwaves so actually cooked, children played outside unwatched by adults and were fine or rode their bikes without helmets and knee protection and survived. Going through an old photo album is oftentimes a good history lesson for the grandchildren.
Quite frankly my life was a whole lot better in many ways back then.
Thank you for my first lol of the day!
The 70s weren't all bad.
God rest her soul, and forgive me for the evil thoughts of years ago.
My children (one 12, the other 15) got heavily into watching old episodes of Columbo. One of the things they noticed was the incredible amount of smoking and drinking that went on in those shows.
I was a huge Columbo fan when I was a teenager, back in the first half of the '70s. I didn't even notice it back than, but in virtually every scene, some or all of the characters were smoking cigarettes, and of course the Lieutenant always had his trademark cheap cigar.
Not only that, but the characters were often drinking (particularly the villian), and even if they weren't, there would be a sideboard or cabinet full of liquor bottles and glasses in the frame. Perhaps it was a product-placement thing, but you couldn't see any labels (although you could sometimes identify characteristic bottle shapes).
The producers seemed to think that having whisky (and ice and glasses) at the ready at all times was an indicator of wealth and success.
Part of the "good life" as defined in the post-war era.
Valerie is still looking good.
I recently looked thru a trunk full of pictures my dad had and even when I was a baby my grandparents looked old........maybe they were born that way.
