SOPHIE MONK - This London-born performer got her break singing in the Australian pop band, Bardot. A successful modeling career led her to Hollywood and roles in "Date Movie" and "Click," with Adam Sandler.

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.

THE CHOICE is produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions (HELL'S KITCHEN and KITCHEN NIGHTMARES). Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Scott St. John ("Deal or No Deal") serve as executive producers.
