Poison Front Man Bret Michaels Administers a Dose of Love to a Bevy of Beauties in the New Reality Series 'Rock of Love with Bret Michaels'
The Ten Episode Series Premieres in July
NEW YORK, Feb. 13 -- Hot on the heels of VH1's record
breaking hits, "Flavor of Love" and "I Love New York," comes a fresh new
take on this wildly exciting relationship show. Known as the bandana-clad,
blue- eyed lead singer/songwriter from one of today's legendary rock bands,
Bret Michaels has been handpicked by VH1 and producers Mark Cronin & Cris
Abrego to take this series to all new heights of rock-n-roll insanity! The
hard-rockin' Poison front man is looking for a woman who can truly keep up
with his rock-n- roll lifestyle and not become jealous of his one true
passion -- performing which has been the reason for and destruction of most
of his relationships. As VH1's hottest eligible bachelor, a bevy of
beauties will vie to win his heart in the new series "Rock of Love with
Bret Michaels" premiering in July.
With twenty years of continuous multi-platinum success, sold-out tours
and a couple of high-profile relationships that never led to the altar,
Michaels is ready to wear his heart on his sleeve. The series will focus on
the never- before-revealed private side of Michaels. With that said, the
casting executives have received an overwhelming response from female fans
of all ages. Residing with Michaels in his Los Angeles rock palace, these
women will be tested on their devotion to him and their love and
understanding of all that is rock-n-roll. To help narrow the field,
Michaels will put these women through various challenges. The ladies who
win these challenges will join Michaels on some wild and exclusive
excursions, while those who can't hang like true backstage VIPs will be
escorted out in bona fide rock star fashion.
Whether it's partying on the tour bus, jetting-off to a sun-kissed
beach, or hanging with Michaels' celebrity friends, this 10-part series
follows these lucky ladies on the rollercoaster ride of their lives.
They'll all get a taste of living the rock star life, but in the end, only
one lucky lady will win an all access pass to his heart.
