Perfect Match was an American game show hosted by Bob Goen and announced by Johnny Gilbert, which aired from January 13 to September 12, 1986 in syndication.

The game featured three married couples answering questions about their spouses to win money.

Perfect Match was Goen's first game show and the second game show to be distributed by Lorimar-Telepictures after Lorimar Productions purchased Telepictures in 1985.

The show was also produced by XPTLA, Inc, whose show The $1,000,000 Chance of a Lifetime launched one week before Perfect Match.

Prior to giving an answer, the wife wagered an amount between $10 and their entire bankroll based on her ability to provide a matching response.

Providing the same response added the wager to their bankroll but a non-matching response meant that their wager was deducted from the bankroll.In Round 2, the husbands were secluded offstage while their wives were asked a different set of questions.Each of the couples competed against each other by predicting how their spouses would complete "love notes" to the other.A template letter was shown to the husbands and each selected words they felt would be said by their wife based on the context of the letter.For each match the wives made, their team earned 0.The process was reversed and repeated with each match the husbands made worth 0.
