Rock of Love
is known as Bret Michaels
’ haven for non-stop make out sessions, drinking parties and Vegas sexcapades. Most of the contestants that do land a stint on the show are either strip dancers, bartenders or wannabe Playboy models. In fact, the show has had a very skanky reputation with the public in its two-season run. While some may watch the show for the sexiness factor, some watch it for the comedy factor, finding laughter in the silliest antics of our dear Rock of Love
Of course, there are still some viewers who find the drama of reality TV so overwhelming and addictive, that they just can’t get enough of these dating shows. Surprisingly, a hot Hollywood couple has come out in the open to profess their love for Rock of Love
Forty-seven-year-old Academy and Golden Globe Award winner George Clooney and his Fear Factor
reality TV celebrity Sarah Larson admitted that they do follow Rock of Love
. Larson revealed that watching the Bret Michaels reality show was their favorite past time while they were recovering from their motorcycle accident, which occurred in September 2007. While Clooney suffered a broken rib from the accident, Larson broke a couple of toes. While recuperating, the couple enjoyed watching Rock of Love
“We caught ourselves rooting for someone or getting frustrated,” 29-year-old Larson revealed. “And we were like, 'This is sad'.”
The two met four years ago at a Vegas resort where Clooney was celebrating his birthday and Larson was working. In 2007, they ran into each other at the Ocean’s Thirteen
film premiere and soon thereafter began a relationship.
“We just started talking,” Larson said of the beginning of their romantic relationship. “George is funny and sweet, and he’s good to be around. I see him as a normal person, like anyone else. He just happens to have a well-known face.”
That well-known face belongs to a guy who believes in a certain hierarchy of actors of different departments.
“There is a strange pecking order among actors. Theatre actors look down on film actors, who look down on TV actors,” Clooney recently said, Stuff
reports. “Thank God for reality shows, or we wouldn't have anybody to look down on.”
Pretty ironic for someone who’s dating a woman who victoriously emerged from reality show Fear Factor
after eating a scorpion.
