The third time just might be a charm for Bret Michaels.  Following two failed relationships on TV, the 45-year-old Poison frontman is still determined to seek out his match while trying to be true to his nomad-rocking lifestyle on Rock of Love Bus, which is scheduled to air in early 2009.

On the first season of his reality dating series Rock of Love, Michaels found love in 24-year-old Jes Rickleff but due to off-screen differences, the two parted ways.

“When Jes came back [for a season one reunion show] she said, ‘I have a boyfriend and I only did the show because I thought it would be fun,'” Michaels said in an interview this week with the Grand Junction Free Press.  He asked her if she'd like to go to dinner, but she declined, saying her boyfriend wouldn't like it.

“He didn't get jealous when we were on TV sucking face,” he added.

But Bret Michaels didn't lose hope as he went on yet another quest to find love in the second season of Rock of Love.  This time, he chose 37-year-old Ambre Lake.  The two dated for several months but eventually split up due to conflicting personal schedules.  So, as expected, the rock star bachelor has signed on to do a third installment of the reality dating series called Rock of Love Bus, which according to Michaels, is a better representation of his true life.

“I've never had a normal dating life.  I was 18 when I left Pennsylvania and came to California in a van. I've pretty much been a nomad or a gypsy for six to seven months of my life a year,” Michaels said.

Meanwhile, casting is already underway for Rock of Love Bus, which follows beautiful babes who will compete for Michaels' affection and will follow the rocker on a month-long expedition across the county.
