This is NOT an April Fool's Joke, though it sounds like it. FOX has ordered a new dating series for the summer that is basically a parody of NBC's The Voice, only it's called The Choice. And the show itself sounds like a Saturday Night Live sketch.

Four celebrity bachelors will sit in the spinning chairs during the Blind Round as women come out and talk about themselves. If the male celeb is interesting, he pulls his "love handle" and turns around. That's not a joke, that's actually what the show calls it.

Once each man has a team of three potential dates, the show commences to future rounds where the men cut one girl, then another until he has his date.

If that's not awesome enough, it's hosted by Cat Deeley, the goddess who hosts So You Think You Can Dance. And I can only imagine the level of "celebrity" they get to be on the show.



The Choice premieres Thursday, June 7 at 9pm on FOX, where it will be paired with the equally silly dating show Take Me Out, hosted by George Lopez.

I'm happy to see silly dating shows are making a comeback. I remember my teenage years were spent obsessed with MTV's silly dating shows like Next, Room Raiders and Taildaters. These new shows seem to be in that same spirit.

How excited are you for FOX's Thursday night dating shows?
