Replica may be the sincerest form of flattery, correct? If so, NBC and its own smash struck “The sound” is experiencing very flattered, because FOX will be exposing another online dating tv show – cheekily labeled as “the option” – come early july that’s an obvious respect towards the music reality competition.

“the option” shall be hosted by Cat Deeley, which additionally has “so that you believe you’ll dancing,” and blatantly took its structure from the NBC-based predecessor. “Four superstars … blind auditions … spinning chairs … but … it’s not what you think,” mentioned a promo that broadcast during a recent bout of American Idol. Like “The Voice,” “The selection” will feature four a-listers (whose names haven’t but been launched) in spinning seats. Merely now, the stars will be measurements upwards members as prospective times.

Each couch comes equipped with a “love handle” (yeah, you read that correct…but please keep your mind outside of the gutter). When pulled, the really love handle indicates fascination with going on a “fantasy day” using the participant under consideration. If more than one celeb brings the lever, they must compete for your girl. After every celeb has three possible times, there is a “Speed Selection” game wherein each lady has just a matter of seconds to persuade the woman well-known suitor to get the lady to your final rounded. In the finals, Deeley presents difficult concern towards remaining two participants plus the celebs make making your decision when it comes down to “dream day.”

The competition recalls the heyday of The Dating Game, because the celebrities will select their own dates without getting able to see all of them “There hasn’t already been another [dating show] hit since ‘The Bachelor,’ so there was not an in-studio one which’s worked since The Dating Game thirty years before,” Fox’s Mike Darnell told “I became considering how exactly to carry out a blind-date tv series without the need for a wall or blindfolds, therefore the spinning seats appeared like a great way to do it.”

Darnell has a history of having motivation from rivals’ designs. Take “Joe Millionaire,” for example, a mischievous response to “The Bachelor,” or “Temptation Island,” a cheeky (and sexy!) version of “Survivor.” “the decision seems like a clear subject since you have to make a selection,” the guy considered EW. “I’m just now realizing it rhymes [with The Voice]!”

I don’t know I think you, Darnell, but I’m all for poking enjoyable at The usa’s absurd fixation with real life tv!

The option will debut on Summer 7, for a season of six one-hour attacks over the summer.
