Pretty much there's a hidden bachelor or bachelorette, and the moderators ask the crowd anime related yes or no, one or the other type questions. Ex: "Do you like shounen or shoujo anime? Shoujo fans, raise your hands!" and after everyone's made their decision, they have one of the two groups sit down and are out of the running. Once there's 3 or 4 contestants left, they sit them at the front of the room and have the bachelor or bachelorette ask them questions. After a few questions, the crowd helps the bachelor/ette pick their choice. There's usually some really fun questions and answers in the game, it's a lot of fun to watch even if you aren't participating 'cuz you're taken ^_^

There really aren't any prizes, or real dates after the game, but it is just a great time and very very very funny... :D

The only way to really join it is to go to it.  Keep in mind that doesn't mean you'll be one of the bachelor/bachelorettes.  That's more luck of the draw at that point.
I went to it and didn't get to be one of the three.  I came close though.

I think I was one or two questions away from going up before being eliminated.  The "selecting process" was usually 5 or 6 questions.
