´rock Of LoveⴠWith Bret Michaels Back For Season 2
Over 3.9 million total viewers tuned into the "Rock of Love with Bret Michaels" reunion special this past Sunday night (October 7) to learn that Bret┬┤s love match was a mismatch. VH1 will continue to help Bret find his "rose" and announces today that a second season of the record-breaking series will premiere on VH1 in early 2008.
After handing in her VIP pass, Jes, the pink-haired beauty proved she was not fit to handle Bret Michaels┬┤ rock-star lifestyle. But the tour continues on and the POISON frontman is searching again for someone to "rock his world." The second season will feature 20 new women pining for Bret┬┤s heart.
The women will be tested on their devotion to him and their love and understanding for rock-n-roll. To help narrow the field, Michaels will put these women through various challenges. Those 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.
