PHOTOS: ‘General Hospital’ Star Jason Cook on FOX’s ‘The Choice’

What happens when one of daytime’s sexiest single men is looking for love? Find out Thursday, June 7 when soap star Jason Cook (and many more celebs) makes his debut on FOX’s new summer dating show, ‘The Choice’.

Sad about Jason Cook (Matt) leaving General Hospital? You’ll be able to get a weekly dose of the soap hunk to help tide you over. Cook and 19 other men, including pop star Joe Jonas, Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D, NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski and model Tyson Beckford, will compete for love.

Filmed in front of a live audience, each episode begins with four of the world’s most eligible bachelors sitting in rotating chairs, turning their backs on love and unable to see the attractive singles looking for a date with fame. In this initial “Blind Round,” each celebrity can only use his suitors’ voices – as they share information about their life, passions, turn-ons and turn-offs – to help himself make The Choice. When the celebrity bachelor likes what he hears, he pulls his “love handle,” spinning his chair around to bring him face-to-face for the first time with his potential mate. If more than one celebrity pulls the handle, they must battle it out for her affection until the attractive single gets THE CHOICE to pick whose dating pool she wants to swim in.

Once each bachelor has his three hotties, the teams enter the “Speed Choice” round, where each woman has only seconds to convince her leading man to sweep her off her feet to the final round.

In the final round, love is on the line when host Cat Deeley poses a challenge question to each of the team’s final two. The celebrities must then make The Choice between each of their two remaining eligible ladies, whisking one away on a dream date and leaving one in no man’s land.
