Both The CW and VH1 are spinning off shows using cast members from previous seasons of those shows, which is definitely the new trend in reality TV.

The fourth version of Rock of Love will be called Daisy of Love (a title that doesn’t make sense at all), and will star second-season runner-up Daisy De La Hoya VH1 is now casting online for men who want to date Daisy. The new show will air next spring and is produced by 51 Minds’ Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego.

Meanwhile, The CW will give America’s Next Top Model supporting cast members Jay Manuel and J. Alexander their own show. Operation Fabulous will follow them as they “travel the country giving women makeovers ” that are “‘Top Model’-style overhauls — how to dress, wear their hair and makeup and bring out their confidence with the support of family, friends and their community,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. No debut date has been announced.
