MTV’s mid-90s show “ Singled Out ” provided a silly new twist on the ageless “Dating Game” model during its three-year run on the cable network. It also helped launch the careers of Jenny McCarthy and Carmen Electra.
Now, in the ongoing effort to exhaust every possible avenue for “reality TV,” Fox is going back to the well with a new dating show called “The Choice.”
Per the Detroit Free Press, the show gives “everyday contestants” the chance to win a date with their “famous counterparts.” Contestants are pared down over three rounds after which the celeb will blindly choose his/her date.
Hmmm. Sounds a lot like Singled Out, doesn’t it?
But wait! There’s more!
As “The Voice” has demonstrated, every successful show needs spinning chairs. So naturally, “The Choice” will follow suit.
Personally, I’d much rather watch a buddy sitcom called “Gronk & Suh.” But that’s just me.
The show debuts June 7. Now enjoy this entirely ambiguous teaser.
