Carmen Electra, Rob Kardashian, Joe Jonas and more celebs to look for love on ‘The Choice’

When Fox showed a promo earlier this month for “The Choice” as a parody of the hit NBC singing competition series “The Voice,” viewers might have believed they were in for yet another singing series. Not so with “The Choice,” which will be a new celebrity dating show featuring celebrities looking for love. Some named on May 9 include Carmen Electra, Rob Kardashian, model Tyson Beckford, Joe Jonas and “Jersey Shore” stars Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio. In total there will be 21 celebrities and athletes looking to be hooked up with non-famous civilian singles and the show will be hosted by “So you Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley. “The Choice” does borrow one element from “The Voice”: Blind auditions. The celebrity bachelors and bachelorettes will start out the first round sitting in rotating chairs. They will not be able to see the singles looking for a date with them. During this initial round the celebrities can only use their suitors’ voices as try to get to know them. When the celebrity likes what they hear, they can pull the “love handle” to spin the chair around to bring them face-to-face for the first time with their potential love match. If more than one celebrity pulls the handle for the single contestant, the two celebrities have to battle it out for the contestant’s affection and the contestant chooses the celebrity they want to date. Once each celebrity contestant has chosen three potential dates, the teams enter the “Speed Choice” round, where each contestant has only seconds to convince the celebrity to pick them for the final round. In the final round host Cat Deeley will pose a challenge question to each of the team’s final two contestants. The celebrities must then make a choice between each of their two remaining eligible contestants. Electra is one of four women set to look for love on the show. Other female celebrities include Playboy Playmate and model Hope Dworaczyk, Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih and Australian singer, actress and model Sophie Monk. Male contestants include actor Dean Cain, former “Dancing With The Stars” contestant and radio personality Mike Catherwood, celebrity chef Rocco Dispirito, “American Idol” season 5 winner Taylor Hicks, soap actor Jason Cook, rapper and former “Dancing With The Stars” contestant Romeo, comedian Finesse Mitchell and “Suburgatory” actor Parker Young. Athletes set to appear include skiing legend Jeremy Bloom, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Taekwondo Olympic gold medalist Steven Lopez, former defensive tackle Warren Sapp, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and two-time Olympic gold medal snowboarder Seth Wescott. Carmen Electra, 40, is likely best known for her appearance on the MTV dating show “Singled Out.” She took over for Jenny McCarthy after McCarthy left in 1997 and stayed on the series until it was canceled in 1998. She also appeared on “Baywatch” and “Scary Movie.” She recently appeared on “Britains Got Talent” as a guest judge and was also a guest judge on “So You Think You Can Dance” in 2011. Electra famously married basketball star Dennis Rodman in 1998 in Las Vegas. Electra later filed for divorce in April 1999. She then married Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro in 2003 and their wedding preparation was documented on the MTV reality series “‘Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen & Dave.” Electra filed for divorce from Navarro in 2006 and it was finalized in February 2007. “The Choice” is set to premiere on Fox on June 7 at 9 p.m.
