Joe Jonas, Tyson Beckford, DJ Pauly D Look for Love in New Trailer for Fox's 'The Choice' (Video)
Sometimes even the stars need a little help in the dating department.
Joe Jonas, Tyson Beckford, Rob Kardashian, Carmen Electra, Playboy playmate Hope Dworaczyk, NFL star Warren Sapp and DJ Pauly D are among those who will look for love on Fox’s upcoming reality dating series The Choice.
Filmed in front of a live audience, each episode begins with four of the world’s most eligible bachelors sitting in rotating chairs, turning their backs on love and unable to see the attractive singles looking for a date with fame. In this initial “Blind Round,” each celebrity can only use his suitors’ voices – as they share information about their life, passions, turn-ons and turn-offs – to help them make The Choice.
When the celebrity bachelor likes what he hears, he pulls his “love handle,” spinning his chair around to bring him face-to-face for the first time with his potential mate. If more than one celebrity pulls the handle, they must battle it out for her affection until the attractive single gets The Choice to pick whose dating pool she wants to swim in.
Once each bachelor has his three picks, the teams enter the “Speed Choice” round, where each woman has only seconds to convince her leading man to sweep her off her feet to the final round.
In the final round, love is on the line when host Cat Deeley poses a challenge question to each of the team’s final two. The stars must then make The Choice between each of their two remaining eligible ladies, whisking one away on a dream date and leaving one in no man’s land.
The new show is set to debut on Fox on Thursday, June 7 at 9 p.m. The Choice is produced by A. Smith & Co Productions. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Scott St. John serve as executive producers.
Among the other celebrity contestnats are Dancing With the Stars alum Mike Catherwood, actor Dean Cain, skiing legend and former NFL star Jeremy Bloom, chef Rocco DiSpirito, NFL star Rob Gronkowski, Idol winner Taylor Hicks, Olympic gold medalists Steven Lopez and Seth Wescott, comedian Finesse Mitchell, Dr. Robert Nettles, singer Romeo, Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, former college football player Ndamukong Suh, Suburgatory actor Parker Young and London-born starlet Sophie Monk.
