Meet The Celebrity Cast of Fox’s Dating Show “The Choice”

The other day, Fox revealed their new celebrity dating show, “The Choice“, debuting this summer. It’s “The Voice” meets “The Dating Game” sprinkled with a little “So You Think You Can Dance” courtesy of Cat Deeley. The British host will be serving double duty this summer for FOX by returning to SYTYCD and hosting this new reality guilty pleasure.

So what is “The Choice“? It’s your opportunity to go on a date with a “celebrity”. The six-episode series will feature singles pitch themselves as the ideal love connection to celebrity bachelors/bachelorettes who are seated with their backs turned to them a la “The Voice” during the blind auditions. If more than one celebrity turns around, the non-famous single person will get to choose who they want. From there, it goes to some sort of “Speed Choice” round, but I’ll wait for Cat Deeley to describe that part when the show airs. This post is to reveal all the celebrities involved.

Appearing on the show are 20 male celebs and 4 female ones. They range from professional athletes, to reality stars to actors. If you’ve ever wanted to date Mike “The Situation”, Olympian Jeremy Bloom or middle child Joe Jonas, then “The Choice” is the “choice” for you. Check out all the stars willing to sell themselves out for some television airtime. Truth be told, there are actually a couple of hotties. I’d even sign up for an opportunity to win them over.

The Men

  • Pauly D, Reality Star (Jersey Shore)
  • Tyson Beckford, Model/Reality Star (Make Me A Supermodel)
  • Joe Jonas, Singer (The Jonas Bros.)
  • Dean Cain, Actor (Lois & Clark)

  • Rob Kardashian, Reality Star (Keeping Up With The Kardashians)
  • Rocco DiSpirito, Chef (Rocco’s Dinner Party)
  • Finesse Mitchell, Comedian (Saturday Night Live)
  • Jeremy Bloom, Olympian (Freestyle Skiing)

  • Romeo, Singer
  • Jason Cook, Actor (Days of Our Lives)
  • Mike Catherwood, Radio Talk Show (Loveline)
  • Dr. Robert Nettles, Doctor

  • Parker Young, Actor (Suburgatory)
  • Warren Sapp, Retired NFL Player (Raiders, Buccaneers)
  • Seth Wescott, Olympian (Snowboarding)
  • Rob Gronkowski, NFL Player (New England Patriots)

  • Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Reality Star (Jersey Shore)
  • Ndamukong Suh, NFL Player (Detroit Lions)

The Women

  • Carmen Electra, Actress (Baywatch)
  • Hope Dworaczyk, Playboy Model
  • Sophie Monk, Singer/Actress (Click)
  • Rima Fakih, Miss USA

The episodes have already been filmed, and according to, some of the men were hot commodities. According to Fox, a few of the female contestants took it seriously, like they were getting married. LOL. Not surprisingly, Tyson Beckford, Dean Cain and Joe Jonas were really popular. Proving that women are as horny as guys, relative unknown actor Parker Young was also sought after. Have you seen his abs on “Suburgatory“? YUM.

What do you think of the cast? Who would you want to win a date with? For me, it’d have to be Beckford, Rob Gronkowski, Parker Young and Jason Cook. Sound off below.

  • Eric

    Taylor Hicks? HAHA

  • Kalo

    Taylor Hicks is a great blues and country singer, not a reality star. Save that for Rob Kardashian.

  • I know, I was really excited until I saw Taylor Hicks which kinda ruined the whole thing for me. Yuk. Not surprised that he’s single though…

  • Dbrewer75

    I think Taylor Hicks would be great in bed

  • Ok, we get it, Taylor Hicks didn’t have a lot of record-selling success after Idol, but he’s a decently handsome guy, seems like a sweetheart + is at least more talented than Mike ‘Situation’ Sorrentino, Pauly D, or Rob Kardashian (as much as I’d like to get the latter’s backside in the sack). Some definite hotties in this bunch, though. I’m checking Mike Catherwood, Parker Young, Romeo, Tyson, Joe Jonas, + Rocco.

    I see a few from that Jersey Shore show. Will these contestants be given STD tests, I wonder?

  • Jay

    Joe Jonas is my Choice.

  • Ryan

    Joe Jonas, Parker Young, Tyson Beckford, Rob Gronkowski, and Jeremy Bloom. All at the same time. Haha.

  • Bip

    I always thought Steven Lopez was gay.

  • Lee

    Absolutely Dean Cain. None of the others come close.
