FOX’s new dating show sounds familiar …

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: It’s a TV show where four famous people sit in big fancy rotating chairs, listen to nobodies vying for their attention, and then spin around when they hear someone they like, thus proving that beauty is only skin deep. If you heard all that and thought “Oh yeah, that’s just The Voice“, then HA! You’re wrong. It’s actually the premise of FOX‘s new dating show, The Choice, which is completely different. From The Hollywood Reporter:

Much like American Idol rival The Voice on NBC, the Fox series will feature a blind audition concept with some of the world’s most eligible — but not yet named — celebrities competing among of group of singles they can’t see. The series is set to debut at 9 p.m. Thursday, June 7.

The series, which relies on the “love is blind” concept, will be filmed in front of a live audience. Each episode will feature four bachelors — and in one case, bachelorettes — seated in rotating chairs, with their backs turned to the single hopeful. The Choice will include a “blind round,” in which each celebrity can only use his suitors’ voice to make the decision. If and when the celebrity bachelor likes what he hears, he pulls his “love handle,” causing the seat to spin around to face his potential mate.

Yes, these two shows are completely different. I mean, I’m sure Christina Aguilera won’t be one of the judges, right? And they even changed the name from The Voice to The Choice. That’s a whole two letter difference! Sorta. Right? Okay then.
