Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens Heat Up July on VH1

"Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch" and "The T.O. Show" Season 2 Premiere on Sunday, July 11 at 9:00 PM and 10:30 PM*

SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 22 -- Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver Chad Ochocinco (formerly Chad Johnson) is using his off-season to pursue happiness off the field in his new VH1 original series "Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch." The series is a mix of Ochocinco's on-field charisma blended with the drama of the dating pool played out in a bracket-style dating tournament. The special 90-minute premiere episode airs on Sunday, July 11 at 9:00 PM*. Also premiering on the same night is "The T.O. Show" Season 2. This season starts with Terrell back on the free market where he needs to decide if he wants to continue his football career and find another team or hang up his cleats and figure out what his life will be post football. Season 2 of "The T.O. Show" premieres on Sunday, July 11 at 10:30 PM* and every Sunday following at 10:00 PM*.

One of the NFL's brightest stars, 32-year-old Ochocinco has been selected to the Pro Bowl six times and named an All-Pro three times. He legally changed his surname from Johnson to Ochocinco prior to the 2008 regular season to reflect the number 85 on his Bengals uniform. In the 2009 season, Ochocinco caught 72 passes for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns. An avid user of social networks, Ochocinco has close to one million followers on Twitter and 300,000 thousand fans on Facebook.

On the first day, 85 women from across the country will take part in Ochocinco's "dating training camp" held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. Throughout the day, Ochocinco will evaluate each woman's performance to where only 17 are left on the official team roster. Also on hand to help him narrow down the competition throughout the season will be Ochocinco's close friend and star wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings, Bernard Berrian. From there, the ladies will be matched up based on their rankings and will competitively date Ochocinco based on those bracket-style "matchups." At the end of each episode, the winners from each "matchup" will move on to the next round of the tournament. In the end, the championship date between the two remaining women will result in Ochocinco awarding the last woman the coveted Championship Ring and his heart. Hopefully, she turns out to be his greatest catch this season!

Returning for its second season, "The T.O. Show," premieres on Sunday, July 11 at 10:30 PM*. Terrell Owens' one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills ends in a disappointing season and once again the football star is faced with the uncertainty of where he will play next year. Or, if he even wants to play anymore. During the off-season, Terrell will reflect on his career back in L.A. much to the chagrin of his best friends and publicists Monique and Kita who know that having him in town will mean that he'll want their constant attention. And, with Mo expecting her third child and Kita in the midst of an intensifying relationship, taking care of T.O.'s every whim is not exactly how they want to spend their time. But, Terrell has big concerns of his own in L.A. He knows that he just might have a shot at reconnecting with his ex-girlfriend Kari � who has since moved there � after they broke up during the football season. In addition to trying to make things right with her, Terrell will also take the time to reexamine his relationships with his children, and work hard to become the father for them that he never had, especially with regard to his son. It will all come to a head for Terrell in a climactic season finale that could set the superstar on an entirely new path in his life. Tune in to watch T.O.'s latest journey Sunday, July 11 at 10:30 PM* and every Sunday following at 10:00PM*.
