Bret Michaels is more than determined to find the love of his life on Rock of Love Bus, and he’s ready to tell audiences just what he’s looking for (in case he doesn’t succeed on the show perhaps?). The 45-year old rocker knows that the woman he’s looking for is somewhere out there, and she’s someone who can definitely “roll with the punches.”
Talking to The Star Telegram, the star of the VH1 reality show stated that this season of the series is the true test for him to finally find love. According to Bret, being with people on the road will reveal the true identity of a person. “If you want to find out the true person somebody is, take them on a family vacation or a road trip and you will find out really quick,” he said.
Spending time with the girls of Rock of Love must have been a remarkable experience for him, but it wasn’t all fun and games. The past two seasons have proven that relationships don’t easily work out, and Bret is highly aware of this. The question is, what happens to the contestants who expect a happy ending, but don’t get it?
“I tell the girls, ‘Look, this is not going to be a marriage with a white picket fence,” Bret revealed. “I’m looking for someone, hopefully, I can find love with, but in the meantime this is a dating show, and let’s have a lot of fun doing it.”
There’s a lot of entertainment in store on Rock of Love, especially when catfights abound. When this happens, Bret usually sits to watch if he can’t calm the ladies down. “I said, ‘Listen, if you girls are going to fight, try to mention my name at least once,’ so I can pretend they’re arguing over me. Usually, it has nothing to do with me but as a man, I have to think that they’re fighting over me.”
As for the ultimate Bret Michaels’ dream girl, he says that “Obviously, there has to be a physical attraction. You want [her] to be self-deprecating, funny, smart. A lot of it’s the eyes. When you look into the eyes, you see what a person’s about.”
