Sexy Soap Star Antonio Sabato Jr. Searches for the Love of His Life in a Lush Hawaiian Paradise

The New VH1 Series "My Antonio" Premieres Sunday, August 16 at 10PM*

Check out the cast of beauties for "My Antonio" on the VH1 Blog Beginning Monday, July 13

SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 15 -- Ultimate bachelor Antonio Sabato Jr. is looking for love -- and VH1 captures every twist and turn of the battle for his heart in "My Antonio."

Thirteen beautiful women travel to an exotic paradise in Hawaii, hoping to make a love connection with the General Hospital star, Calvin Klein underwear model and hunk extraordinaire. Who will win the heart of one of the most desired men on the planet? Find out on "My Antonio," premiering Sunday, August 16th, 2009 at 10:00 PM* on VH1.

"My Antonio" is a real-life soap opera, with romance, betrayal and a show-stopping plot twist: A woman from Antonio's past will shock everyone when she shows up to compete for his love. And she's not just any woman. She's Antonio's ex-wife! Now she's determined to win him back -- at any cost.

And there's another lady causing trouble -- Antonio's momma. She arrives to help him make the most important decision of his life. But is anyone good enough for her number one son?

The 10-episode series begins with Antonio's sexy swim ashore to meet the 13 beauties vying for his attention. Within the first few moments, Antonio makes a shocking elimination, leading the women to realize that anything can happen when Antonio is in charge.

"I've been with some of the most amazing women in the world," says Sabato, "and at the age of 36, I'm finally ready to settle down. I really hope to meet that special someone. For me this is not a game. This is real. This is my life."

Will Antonio be able to handle this emotional rollercoaster and find his true love? Watch the drama unfold when "My Antonio" premieres Sunday, August 16th, 2009 at 10:00 PM* on VH1.
