The Fox Network actually landed some decent single celebrities to participate in their upcoming dating show, “The Choice”; you know, the dating show that is a complete rip-off of NBC’s “The Voice”.
On each episode, four celebrities will choose a non-famous bachelor or bachelorette to go on a date with. Initially, the stars will have their backs turned to the contestants, so they won’t be able to judge based on appearance. (Even though Fox already said that the candidates are being screened for appearance)
Some of the participating celebrities are:
Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers
Dean Cain, who played Superman on “Lois & Clark“
Season Five “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks
“Jersey Shore” stars Pauly D and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino
Former NFL star Warren Sapp, and current NFL players Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots.
Former Miss USA Rima Fakih
Australian actress Sophie Monk, who was in “Date Movie” and “Click”
“The Choice” premieres on June 7th.
By the way, Fox is ADMITTING the obvious: That ‘The Choice” was initially a spoof of “The Voice”.
Fox executive Mike Darnell says, quote, “What started out as a goof ended up being a ridiculously good format. It really feels like a hit. It was charming and funny … it works beautifully. It’s going to sell all over the world.”
Only time will tell for that, Mike.
Here is the promo for the new show:
By the way, the show has NOT received good reviews from people who have had a sneak-peek of it so far.
