One man's search for love on TV begins tonight as NBC premieres its new reality dating series Ready for Love
at 9pm right after The Voice
. Kicking off the competition is rock star Tim Lopez of the Plain White T's, a hopeless romantic who thinks that he's ready to settle down and start a family.
Tim will be presented with 12 women handpicked by a matchmaker and will go through a romantic adventure that "will combine in-studio competition and reality show elements." By the end of tonight's episode, however, only eight hopefuls will remain in the running.
But Tim isn't the only love searcher on Ready for Love. Viewers can also expect to meet bachelors Ben Patton, a financier from Dallas, Texas, and Ernesto Arguello, a philanthropist from Miami, Florida, in the coming episodes. All these bachelors will have their turn on the spotlight as they each have 12 women vying for their attention.
As the men narrows down their search and as the season comes to a close, the three men choose their final three women. As a couple, they must decide whether or not they'll get engaged or married.
Ready for Love is produced by Eva Longoria and hosted by Bill and Giuliana Rancic. It also features matchmakers Amber Kelleher-Andrews, Tracy McMillan and Matt Hussey.
