The Most Dangerous (Dating) Game

As if the show wasn't already creepy enough.
Before he was a convicted serial killer, Rodney Alcala was a winning bachelor on "The Dating Game."

Within months of his "Dating Game" appearance, Alcala would become a killer, prosecutors said, abducting and a 12-year-old girl in 1979. Before the decade was over, Alcala would claim four more victims, according to testimony at his trial.
He was selected for the show despite being a convicted child rapist in the 60's.  Way to background check ABC.

Read the link above for the whole story.  Yi-ikes.

Well hell, last week Benjamin Sifrit filed for divorce from his wife Erika on the grounds that she's a "convicted felon."

Well, yeah. So's Benjamin - he and Erika were convicted of murdering another couple in Ocean City back in 2002. Benjamin's serving 38 years in Western Correctional out in Cumberland and Erika's doing Life Pluse 20 in Jessup.

Which begs the question - what's Benjamin's complaint with the missus?

Does she nag too much? Does he want to see other inmates? Or does he just feel that he needs more space?

And seriously, if he were to try the Internet dating thing at this point, who does he figure eHarmony or is gonna pair him up with who's a closer match than Erika?
