Fox is giving celebrities "The Choice" this summer.
The Choice dating series debuts on Thursday, June 7th and, for now, is scheduled for six episodes. Here’s FOX’s press release, which includes further details about the guests: THE MOST ELIGIBLE CELEBRITIES GIVE LOVE A SPIN ON “THE CHOICE” New Celebrity Dating Show Premieres Thursday, June 7 on FOX Reality stars DJ Pauly D and Rob Kardashian, model Tyson Beckford, pro football superstars Rob Gronkowski and Ndamukong Suh, singer Joe Jonas and actors Carmen Electra and Dean Cain are among the celebrities who will vie for love on the hottest summer dating show, THE CHOICE, which debuts Thursday, June 7 (- PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Hosted by Cat Deeley, THE CHOICE is the ultimate blind date for celebrity bachelors and bachelorettes competing for the hearts of attractive singles – they can’t see.
"We wanted to put a new spin on the dating game show that gives celebrities 'The Choice' of a lifetime and the chance to prove you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover," Mike Darnell, president of alternative entertainment at Fox, said in a statement.
"The Choice" competition begins with four celebrities sitting in rotating chairs -- a la "The Voice" -- starting with their backs to the singles hoping to score a date.
The male and female contestants are rotated to meet each other and have usually around fifteen seconds to ask questions about the other person.
At the end of each interval, the individual celebrity contestant's chair is turned around to signal the next two participants to start their interview.If the celebrity likes what he hears, he can pull his "love handle" — yes, Fox is really calling it that — and spin his chair around to see his potential mate face-to-face.In another caveat reminiscent of if two celebs pull their love handle at the same time (wait until the content crusader groups get a load of that), it's the single who gets to choose which celebrity they want to hang with. They include a mixture of actors, singers, athletes and reality stars: Tyson Beckford, Jeremy Bloom, Dean Cain, Mike Catherwood, Jason Cook, DJ Pauly D, Rocco Dispirito, Rob Gronkowski, Taylor Hicks, Joe Jonas, Rob Kardashian, Steven Lopez, Finesse Mitchell, Dr.Robert Nettles, Romeo, Warren Sapp, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Ndamukong Suh, Seth Wescott, Parker Young, Hope Dworaczyk, Carmen Electra, Rima Fakih, and Sophie Monk.Each celebrity contestant has the length of the possible suitor's time (about thirty seconds) to decide if he or she is interested in going out with that person.
