Jenna Dewan Named Host of Fox's 'Flirty Dancing' Series

Based on a British TV hit, this dating show will see participants performing a different choreographed dance with two potential love interests before choosing the one who has better chemistry with them.

AceShowbiz - Dancer and actress Jenna Dewan has signed on as the host of a quirky new U.S. ballroom dancing-based dating show, based on a British TV hit.

"Flirty Dancing" will pair complete strangers after teaching them half of a dance routine that will come together when they meet for a blind date "at a breathtaking location".

"In this romantic approach to dating, these singles will push themselves out of their comfort zones in the hope of being swept off their feet, rather than swept to the left or right on a phone," a show spokesman says.

The U.S. adaptation will twist the original format by featuring participants who will perform a different choreographed dance with each of two potential love interests, before choosing the one, with which they have the best chemistry.

"Flirty Dancing is a truly unique format; it's unlike anything we've ever seen before," Fox Entertainment president of alternative entertainment and specials, Rob Wade, says. "It's fun, fresh and romantic, and broadens the dating format far beyond its traditional boundaries."

"Jenna is our dream host. 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."

Dewan, whose breakout role came in the 2006 dance movie "Step Up", also hosted the first two seasons of Jennifer Lopez's NBC hit "World of Dance".
