Forget “The Masked Singer.” There’s a bizarre — if sexier — new reality competition on the way.
“Flirty Dancing,” hosted by Jenna Dewan (aka ex-Mrs. Channing Tatum), is based on a British show that essentially combines “Dancing with the Stars” with dating shows.
Contestants must learn half of a dance routine before meeting a partner with whom they then will have to perform the routine — but without talking to each other. Each contestant must do this with two dance partners before selecting one to move forward with on a second date. Presumably, their selection is based on dancing chemistry since it isn’t based on conversation.
Jenna Dewan is best known for hosting the “World of Dance” reality competition and for starring — alongside her ex-hubby — in the 2006 movie “Step Up.”
“Jenna is our dream host,” Fox tells the Hollywood Reporter. “She knows all about how powerful connection and chemistry can be on the dance floor. So there really is no one better to help guide these singles in their search for love.”
“Flirty Dancing” will air at an unspecified date this winter on Fox.
