Yes, the producers of the show are calling it The Choice because it rhymes with The Voice and uses the same spinning chair gimmick, but if I'm Chuck Barris then I'm going to try and get a piece of the action because they are basically stealing the show the Dating Game. If you don't know who Chuck Barris is, then you have to Wiki the guy. Oh, and read his bio and even watch that wacky George Clooney CIA movie about him.

Anyway, back in the day, there was a show called the Dating Game and one person would be hidden away from their three prospective dates. The person could hear them but not see them. The person would ask questions and then pick someone based on the answers rather than their looks. They would then go on some crazy vacation together for their first date. Chaperoned. However the chaperone would get drunk a lot or end up sleeping with the contestant or the person they picked so this was not your typical chaperone. The Dating Game also had a celebrity version. See below for Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson on the show.
Anyway, The Choice is doing the same thing, but celebrities will be the person and regular people will be asked questions and the celebrity will have to pick who they want to date. Oh, and as for the celebrities? Jersey Shore people, Carmen Electra and Sophie Monk.
