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.
With some of favorite shows about to go into summer hibernation, it’s time for the major networks to kick into summer reality TV show mode. The summer hosts some of my favorite shows such Bachelor Pad and of course, Big Brother. ABC is gearing up for the summer in a big way with two new reality shows, so it was only a matter of time before FOX decided to get in there like a dirty shirt.
With Cat Deeley serving as host and playing double duty while hosting So You Think You Can Dance, FOX is ready to introduce their newest reality dating-style show titled, The Choice. Sound like another famous show that rhymes? Well, the comparisons and similarities don’t stop there, right down to the famous swivel chairs.
That’s right, The Choice will feature the same big chairs as The Voice but instead of auditioning for a singing competition, you’ll be trying to win a date with one of the celebrities sitting in the chair. You can pinch yourself – this isn’t an April Fool’s Joke. This is for real. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous already and will probably get cancelled after two episodes.
