The Choice, Fox's new dating show with thematic elements similar to The Voice, has cast a variety of singers, actors, models and reality stars galore.

Joe Jonas, Dean Cain, Tyson Beckford, Taylor Hicks, Jersey Shore's Pauly D and The Situation, Rob Kardashian and other dudes will compete for love.

The Choice's female celebrities include Miss USA wild child Rima Fakih, actress Carmen Electra and models Hope Dworaczyk and Sophie Monk.

Five of the episodes on the show, which premieres June 7, will feature the male celebrities, while one episode puts women in the power seats.

Cat Deeley, host of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, will host the new show. The participating celebrities have not yet been announced.

Fox's Mike Darnell tells EW of the new concept:
