The Reality TV Guide to Finding Your Soul Mate
Date a Comeback King
Sure, it's great to be with a man in his heyday, but has-beens need love too! If you're craving a marriage proposal from an '80s rocker (think salacious Poison frontman Bret Michaels of VH1's sleaze fest Rock of Love), an over-hyped "hype" man (former Public Enemy MC Flavor Flav, star of Flavor of Love), an R&B crooner and sex tape star (Ray J from For the Love of Ray J), or a control-freak/former-underwear model (Antonio Sabato Jr., the sexy star of My Antonio) then run -- don't walk -- to score yourself an audition on one of VH1's career-reviving, relationship-building reality shows. You don't even have to be familiar with their once illustrious careers -- many contestants weren't even born during these former celebs' heydays -- but die-hard fans are also acceptable, according to the groupie-loving Bret Michaels, who prides himself on being an equal opportunity dater. On this televised trip to the altar, let your extension-lengthened tresses down and get ready to party like a rock star.Bigger Is Better
Have you ever considered a breast augmentation, or a little nip-and-tuck? Or did you already have some elective cosmetic surgery and want to flaunt the new you in front of all of America? If so, this might bring you one step closer to finding your potential hubby on the small screen. On dating shows like Rock of Love, Real Chance of Love, and Flavor of Love, and even the less racy Bachelor series, it's pretty much the status quo to have the body of a private dancer. Unfortunately in the reality TV marriage market, while a good first impression is key, so is a substantial cup size. On the spicy second season of VH1's For the Love of Ray J, one minx-like contestant was even given the cheeky moniker Paradeez (translation: "pair of D's" as in an overflowing D-cup) to reflect her ample assets. So until a high IQ is deemed super sexy on the boob tube -- pun intended -- strap on a gravity-defying Wonderbra or make an appointment with a plastic surgeon.
