Ocho Cinco, what can I say….he has the charisma,charm and toughness on the football field….and apparently he is the same way in “non-football” life….he is starring in his own dating show on VH1…yea it’s kind of on the Ray-J formula…..but this one is a little different, he started with 85 women
eliminated the ones “who didn’t make the cut”….and then final cut he dropped it down to 17.….and this is all before the ladies move into the house…..err…. excuse me the Mega-Mansion, once they get there they find out one more will be eliminated by the end of the night, Ocho-Cinco has a sweet 16 type bracket set-up for this compettion…and to top it all off the ladies are seeded, head to head, one will be eliminated each week until we reach the Final 4-then 2-then 1.…it is reported that over 3,000 women applied to be contestants on the show….the first episode has a special apperance by T.O….Bernard Berriam of the Minnesota Vikings is the “wingman” for Ocho…..all I gotta say is ….Ray-J never had any brackets on his show!!
Why didn’t I think of that!!
click on the 85 to see the women Ocho-Cinco has selected for….
