Antonio Sabato, Jr., brothers Real and Chance will find love on VH1

VH1 has announced fall debut dates for its reality shows, and as part of that, has announced two new series.

The first is yet another damn spin-off of I Love New York franchise, which of course is a spin off of Flavor of Love. Real Chance at Love will apparently follow the model of the two previous series, except I Love New York season one contestants and brothers Real (Ahmad Givens) and Chance (Kamal Givens) will conduct their searches together.

VH1’s press release says they’ll look for “real love as 15 young ladies move into their Stallionaire ranch house and try to capture their hearts.” It debuts Nov. 3 at 9 p.m. ET.

Antonio Sabato, Jr., who recently starred in NBC’s Celebrity Circus, will also get a series focused on his search for love, but his series “will be shot like a soap opera — the genre Sabato’s best known for — and feature [Sabato's] narration as he puts contestants through various challenges, such as re-creating a steamy love scene or skydiving in a gown,” Variety reports.

The new series doesn’t yet have a name or debut date.
