Fox Creates New Dating Game Based On The Voice
I’m really struggling to process the idea of Fox making a dating game show, based off of NBC’s The Voice, where celebrities go on dates with regular folk. I’m just not sure if I should laugh at how ridiculous this is or do further research to find out how I can become a contestant. It’s a concept I totally get. Everyone has had a fantasy about going on a date with a celebrity (mine’s Alison Brie, but I wouldn’t say no to Blake Lively). So how is this going to work exactly?
As reported by Yahoo, the show, appropriately called The Choice, is borrowing the format of The Voice, which means the four celebrities in each episode (there will be six this summer) will be seated in swiveling chairs with their backs turned to the contestants. The celebrities will have to hear what their potential dates have to say without knowing what they actually look like and make a decision based solely on how they describe themselves (though it would appear they aren’t going to be throwing any curveballs at the celebrities and bring on people with charming personalities but faces that look like they went through a meat grinder). If the celebrity hears something they like, they can pull the “love handle” on their chair and they’ll swivel around to see whom they’ve chosen for the next round.
Next comes the “speed choice,” where the contestants make quick cases on why they should be chosen for the final round, where two contestants will receive a challenge question. From there, the celebrities make “the choice” to take someone on a dream date. Five out of the six episodes will feature male celebrities, with one episode having females. There still isn’t any word on which celebrities will be appearing, but I’ll be a quite disappointed if there aren’t a few A-listers. The show is premiering this summer on June 7th and will be hosted by model and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley.
