Fox's The Choice Celebrities Include Carmen Electra, Two Jersey Shore Boys, And More

Fox’s The Choice is a celeb-reality dating show that gives ordinary (as in not rich, famous or impossibly beautiful) people the chance to win a date with celebrity. The series, which hits the air on June 7th, has released the names of the celebs some lucky lowly folk will have a chance at dating. Who wants to date a Jersey Shore star?

It’s a long list of men and a somewhat shorter list of women who will hit the stage in spinning chairs to pick from among a lineup of non-celebrity, but likely impossibly beautiful anyway, singles. It will start with a blind round, where only voices are heard, and then the chairs will spin as each celebrity tugs on the “love handle” (really?) to put the face to the voice. From there the selections will be narrowed down to a one-on-one date.

So who will be on the list of available celebrities looking to make a love match outside Hollywood? Well, there’s Joe Jonas (of the Jonas Brothers), Dean Cain (best known from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) American Idol’s Taylor Hicks, and not one, but two Jersey Shore boys, Pauly D and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. On the female side we’ve got Carmen Electra and Playboy model Hope Dworaczyk as two of four celebrities.

Here’s a full list of the contestants released on EW today :
