FOX is announcing summer premiere dates for returning series BEAT SHAZAM, MASTERCHEF and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, as well as for new series SPIN THE WHEEL. Air dates for PARADISE HOTEL and MISS USA(R) were previously announced.

PARADISE HOTEL, the innovative unscripted dating competition series in which sexy singles try to remain in paradise for as long as possible, will debut with a special, two-hour premiere Thursday, May 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Television personality and reality star Kristin Cavallari is tapped to host the new series, which will air three nights per week in an "as it happens" format during a five-week run. Following the Thursday night premiere, the series will air on Mondays (starting May 13 at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Wednesdays (starting May 15 at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursdays (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

BEAT SHAZAM keeps the jams coming with the Season Three premiere Monday, May 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Hosted by Grammy-, Golden Globe- and Academy Award-winning actor and musician Jamie Foxx ("Ray," "Django Unchained"), BEAT SHAZAM is an interactive game show that pits teams of two against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. In the end, the team with the most money banked will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the world's most popular song identification app, for the chance to win up to $1 million dollars. Actress, model and writer Corinne Foxx, daughter of Jamie Foxx, will return as deejay. Celebrity guests who have appeared in the series include Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Bolton, Smokey Robinson, TLC and Lance Bass.

Celebrating its milestone 10th season, MASTERCHEF will air two nights per week, kicking off Wednesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and joining the Thursday lineup on Thursday, June 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). On MASTERCHEF, award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich will put a new batch of talented home cooks through a series of challenges and elimination rounds, with one home cook ultimately claiming the title of MASTERCHEF and the $250,000 grand prize.

Hosted by Cat Deeley, the Emmy Award-winning SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE returns with an all-new season on Monday, June 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Joining fan favorites Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy at the judging table for auditions and the Academy rounds are Emmy Award nominee Laurieann Gibson, Lady Gaga's longtime choreographer and creative director, and Emmy Award winner and SYTYCD alum Dominic "D-Trix" Sandoval. The dance competition series spotlights highly skilled dancers between the ages of 18 and 30 who compete in contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation, breaking and more to secure their place in the SYTYCD studio, competing each week for America's votes. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale.

Brand-new high-stakes game show SPIN THE WHEEL will debut Thursday, June 20 (9:00-10:00 PMET/PT), following MASTERCHEF's time-period premiere on the night. Executive-produced by four-time Emmy Award-winning actor and 10-time Grammy Award-winning musician Justin Timberlake, and hosted by actor, director, writer and comedian Dax Shepard ("Hit and Run"), the show offers life-changing opportunities to win fortunes each episode with the spin of a massive, unpredictable wheel. The show, created by Timberlake and Andrew Glassman ("The Wall"), is a suspenseful, high-energy mix of pop culture trivia, strategy and simple whirling luck, with the possibility of winning incredible sums of cash prizes upwards of $20 million. With massive prize money on the line, contestants must make sweat-inducing, gut-wrenching decisions: whether to walk away, or risk it all to SPIN THE WHEEL one last time.

Additionally, the 2018 MISS USA(R) competition is set to air live on Thursday, May 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), as was previously announced.
