Bret Michaels Takes His Hit Show on the Road for Another Try at Love as VH1 Announces 'Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels'
SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 16 -- Rock star Bret Michaels
tried twice to find love by filling a mansion with gorgeous women and
having them compete for his heart. But after the final pass was handed out
and the cameras stopped rolling, Bret's picks didn't work out. He and
season two winner, Ambre Lake, really tried to make it work and although
they still remain close friends, between his tour line-up and her work
schedule there's no time for a relationship.
"Bret has been very upfront and honest about how difficult maintaining
a normal relationship may be for a touring rock star. He's right, it's
absolutely an insane lifestyle and neither of us had the time to make it
work," stated Lake.
Now Bret is taking another stab at finding his perfect match in the
ultimate rock and roller's test ... life on the road! "Rock of Love Bus
with Bret Michaels" is set to premiere in early 2009.
"Seasons one and two of 'Rock of Love' shattered ratings records and
VH1 is so happy to have Bret back for another outrageous season. This time
we'll reveal Bret in his most comfortable setting -- the infamous rock star
tour bus," said Jeff Olde, VH1's Executive Vice President, Original
Programming and Production.
"We are excited to hit the road for another season of 'Rock of Love,'"
commented Executive Producers Mark Cronin & Cris Abrego. "Nobody knows
their way around a tour bus like Bret Michaels, and we are confident that
the audience will enjoy the ride."
How will Bret find a woman to 'rock his world' when his world is always
moving? VH1 is loading up a tour bus filled with beautiful babes and taking
them on tour across the country. "Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels"
takes contestants out of the mansion and on the road in true rock star
style. This season will feature all-new ladies vying for Bret's affection
while traveling across America following Bret on a month-long tour. The
contestants will face new challenges to see if they can handle the rock
star life on the road.
This time as the bus pulls into each new city, the girls will engage in
challenges specifically revolving around Bret's life on the road. Whether
it's greeting aggressive groupies with a smile, enduring grueling
schedules, dodging the advances of the warm-up band or even stepping in
last-minute to fill in for delinquent roadies -- these girls will be put to
the test. This season, as the Rock of Love Bus heads into America's
heartland, the show will be taking the viewer to a whole new level with
crazy, fun, over-the-top challenges -- imagine Truck Stop Olympics or a
dance contest on top of the St. Louis Arch or even a BBQ cook-off beneath
the World's Largest Thermometer. And also, back by popular demand... Mud
Bowl 3. Americana at it's finest!
VH1.com and VH1 Mobile will offer extensive video content from the
series throughout it's season. Stay tuned for more information at
