VH1 looking for women to compete in Rock of Love, possibly for Poison’s Bret Michaels’ love

VH1 is casting for a new show that sounds a lot like Flavor of Love, but that will star an still unidentified rock star from the 1990s who will select a partner from a group of women. It’s those women that VH1 seeks.

Idolator unearthed the casting call (that’s not yet on the network’s own poorly-updated web site) that asks women who want to “compete for the love” of this lead singer to apply. The full notice:

VH1 and the producers of THE SURREAL LIFE and MY FAIR BRADY bring you the hottest relationship show ever… ”ROCK OF LOVE”.

CASTING: Twenty bachelorettes to live in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills and compete for the love of one of the 90’s HOTTEST ROCKERS. We are unable to announce who this single rocker is at this time, but…He is the real deal. A famous, sexy, bad boy rocker. He was the lead singer of a famous 90’s rock band and he still tours today!

Note how the casting call insists that this is not some washed-up, old, B-list rock star; instead, he’s still touring. Idolator originally speculated that the rocker could be the Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz, Third Eye Blind’s Stephan Jenkins, Smasmouth’s Steve Harwell, or Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst.

However, the site reported yesterday that it “received multiple tips that the frontman in question is actually Bret Michaels of Poison,” even though his band “is not only forever entwined with the ’80s.”
