Generally the Bachelorette would ask questions written in advance on cards to each of the three hidden bachelors. The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors. This continued until time ran out. The Bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions. Occasionally, the contestant was a bachelor who would ask questions to three Bachelorettes. Certain kinds of questions were "off-limits", such as name, age, occupation, and income.
