Get ready for Rob Gronkowski the reality TV star. The hard-partying Pats tight end is among a slew of C-list celebrities set to appear on Fox’s new dating show “The Choice.” The prime-time show, which debuts June 7, will feature famous bachelors and bachelorettes auditioning sexy singles. In each episode, according to Entertainment Weekly, four celebs will sit in spinning chairs and listen to prospective dates pitch themselves. The pool of contestants is eventually pared down until the celebrities choose their date. Gronk, who was briefly linked to porn star Bibi Jones last season, joins a cast that includes, among others, singer Joe Jonas, actor Dean Cain, model Tyson Beckford, former “American Idol” star Taylor Hicks, “Jersey Shore” stars Pauly D and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, chef Rocco Dispirito, Rob Kardashian, Carmen Electra, and Sophie Monk. (“The Choice” will be hosted by Cat Deeley of “So You Think You Can Dance” fame.) Fox exec Mike Darnell had this to say about the show to EW: “What started out as a goof ended up being a ridiculously good format. It really feels like a hit.
