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 episodes have already been filmed, and according to EW.com, 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.
