LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – NBC has “The Voice,” and now Fox has “The Choice.”

The network has given the go-ahead to a new celebrity dating show that sounds a touch like NBC’s hit singing competition in more ways than one. Four celebrities? Blind auditions? Spinning chairs? Yup, yup and yup.

Hosted by Cat Deeley, the show will feature four male celebrities choosing potential suitors using only the sounds of their voices as they describe their lives and passions. When one of the famous bachelors hears something he likes, he pulls his “love handle” (yes, really), which sends him spinning to face his suitor. If more than one celebrity expresses interest, they must vie for her affection until she chooses whose dating pool she wants to join.

The rounds progress, with the celebrity eventually choosing one lucky lady for a dream date.

“The Choice” premieres June 7 at 9 p.m.
