Pick of the Week: Watching a Fave Find Love
Those of you who are longtime readers of my blog know that I am a huge Cincinnati Bengals fan. And that means I adore Chad Ochocinco.
Yes, he talks too much. Yes, he should focus more on football than his outside pursuits. But I still adore him. So how can I possibly deny him his shot at finding love?
And more importantly, how can I not watch?
My Pick of the Week is “Chad Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch.”
The romance reality-competition show is old hat to all of us by now. But Chad throws something different into the mix by pitting the girls against each other in a bracket style competition. He’ll start out with 85 girls and then whittle them down to one.
The key to a successful one of these shows is a likeable bachelor/bachelorette, a la Bret Michaels in “Rock of Love.” And I don’t think you can get much more likeable than Chad, so I think VH1 could have something pretty special on its hands.
I would much rather watch Chad catching touchdown passes from Carson Palmer, but I will be watching this too. I might even wear my Chad jersey a couple of weeks just to show my support…
“Chad Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch” premieres Sunday, July 11th at 9 p.m. on VH1. You can see a preview here.
