In a preselected fashion, the five daters were put into an order to go on a date with the contestant.
Also, comments from daters on the RV about the contestant would air.On the show, three men or women have their rooms inspected, or "raided" by another single man or woman.The raider does not meet or see any of the three singles (any personal photographs of the contestant are removed from the room or covered with a smiley face sticker).If the date was less than a minute, it would be one dollar) and the date would officially end, but not with the dater being "nexted".The contestant would then say, "You have been on a date with me for ("X" number of minutes).The first episode was filmed at Tulane University, and featured Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey to promote the program.
The first seven seasons were Room Raiders (in the New York metropolitan area), Room Raiders II, Room Raiders: Miami, Room Raiders: Hotlanta (in the Atlanta area), Room Raiders: California, Room Raiders: Texas, Room Raiders: Arizona. Starting with the Miami season, episodes were given themes such as Best Friends, Twins, Beauty and the Freaks, Double Trouble, Hidden Beauty, Boy Toy, Opposites Attract, Threes a Kind and celebrity guests.
The date usually varied, but most of the time, it consisted of a challenge or an activity that the contestant asked the dater to participate in.
However, it wasn't uncommon for a date to feature the two people conversing or eating a meal as well or in addition to that.
They would usually explain a hobby that they enjoy and what they like and dislike in a person, often chiding that they would "next," a person if they had this attribute.
Then, the five daters of the opposite sex (or same sex in LGBTQ episodes) described themselves to the audience.
On the other hand, if the dater chose to go on a second date, the dater would forfeit the money they earned from the date, and dater would walk away together with the contestant, and the remaining daters on the RV would usually say rude or impolite things to the contestant and/or the dater.
