Fox dating show the choice speed dating vs online dating
They get to know her by listening to her speak, and if they like what they hear, they give their "Love Handle" a tug and their chair turns around.
It's the lady's choice if more than one of the four men turn their chairs around.
I can already hear the theme music in my mind (This is The Choice! Fox doesn't seem to be making any apologies about the similarities between the NBC singing competition The Voice and their new show The Choice.
In fact, they seem to dive head first into it with the teaser they released in addition to the announcement: So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley is set to host the series, which debuts on Thursday, June 7 (- PM ET/PT).
If the celebrity likes what he hears, he can pull his "love handle" — yes, Fox is really calling it that — and spin his chair around to see his potential mate face-to-face.
In another caveat reminiscent of if two celebs pull their love handle at the same time (wait until the content crusader groups get a load of that), it's the single who gets to choose which celebrity they want to hang with.
The format of the program, which utilizes a format similar to the blind audition rounds of The Voice, features three stages of competition and involves four single celebrity contestants (usually male; the opposite, featuring four female celebrities, also occasionally occurs), competing to fill teams of three possible dates.
The first is the blind audition, in which four contestants listen to potential dates give their first impression while the celebrities' chairs are turned around as to not see them.
Paul “DJ Pauly D” Del Vecchio is among the quartet of guys featured in Thursday’s premiere, and if you love him on MTV, there’s no reason you won’t love him on “The Choice.” The other chairs are occupied by actor Jason Cook (“General Hospital”), rapper/actor Romeo (no longer so Lil’) and champion skier (and, very briefly, Philadelphia Eagle) Jeremy Bloom.
Each celebrity bachelor will eventually pick three women — which is when teams enter a "Speed Choice" round, and contestants must convince her celeb why she should be in the final round.
Two contestants per celeb are left for the final round, in which they'll be asked to answer a question.
The celebrities then have to choose whom they're taking out on a date.
For the show's inaugural six-episode run, 20 celebrity bachelors (from the world of sports, music, reality TV and TV) were chosen.
