Tonight Fox has another new dating show for us reality tv junkies, this one is hosted by So You Think You Can Dance’s Cat Deeley and is called “The Choice”. This show is a complete knock-off of “The Voice” and Fox is clearly mocking NBC. They are copying the blind auditions and the celebrities who sit in their spinning swivel chairs. Although, unlike The Voice, there will be no cash prize and the C-list celebrities are only looking for a date; no fantasy suite or Oasis for these hopeful women. Stay tuned as we live blog the premiere episode with all the up-to-the-minute details and action.
Now you are probably wondering who these C-list celebrities are, well in week 1 they are none other than Jersey Shore’s Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, General Hospital’s Jason Cook, rapper/actor Romeo (formerly Lil’ Romeo), skier Jeremy Bloom. In future episodes we will see American Idol Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks, Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrento, reality star Rob Kardashian and singer Joe Jonas.
The Four celebs sit in chairs with their backs turned to a woman who tries to grab their interest. If the celeb likes what they hear, they turn around. There are three rounds and the contestants are narrowed down until each celeb has chosen a date. Cameras will follow the couples on their dates so we can see all how it all goes down.
We will be live blogging tonight’s episode with all the excitement, so don’t forget to come back to this spot at 9:00 PM EST to spend the evening with us. Make sure tor refresh often to get the most current results! While you wait for the recap, check out a sneak peek of tonight’s episode below.
