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.

DWTS Season 12 Announce Cast Pairings

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The “Dancing With The Stars” Season 12 cast was announced live on Monday night’s “The Bachelor” and just like the elimination show, the producers dragged things out before announcing the celeb-pro pairings. Couldn’t they just have revealed the celebrities’ partners that same night. Oh, well. So which of the returning professionals are coming back? Pretty much everyone from last season with one notable exception.

As reported here a few weeks earlier, fan favorite and record holder of the most mirror ball trophies, Derek Hough, is taking a season off to focus on his film career. Coming in to fill in his ballroom shoes, is Russian hottie, Dmitry Chaplin. Welcome back you sexy beast. Unfortunately, both Julianne Hough and Edyta Sliwinska aren’t coming back, much to the chagrin of their fans. Hopefully the producers will woo them back for lucky season 13.

Tonight during The Bachelor, ABC broke the silence (finally) on who will be the celebrities on this season of Dancing With the Stars which begins March 21st. A few weeks ago, I spoke with Mark Ballas and Chelsie Hightower who wouldn’t crack when I asked them about the upcoming season but now, all the secrets will be revealed.

Yesterday during the Oscar’s, ABC released a mini teaser where the cast narrated a commercial all together. Rumors went wild online of who’s voices were heard within the teaser. These weren’t the first rumors that have hit the net.

Speculated cast members have included Kirstie Alley, Nastia Liukin and Kendra Wilkinson along with football bad boy Brett Favre. We all know that DWTS usually has a formula they fulfill. The child star, the legend, the pop star or R&B singer, the athlete, the supermodel, etc. So, who made the cut this year?
