First Flavor Flav, then Brett Michaels, and now Antonio Sabato Jr.
VH1 has announced that it has ordered an untitled reality dating series that will follow the former soap opera heartthrob and recent Celebrity Circus competitor as he searches for the perfect woman.
"At the age of 36, I'm finally ready to settle down," Sabato toldVariety in a Wednesday report.
According to Variety, the show will be shot using a soap opera theme and feature narration by Sabato as he and contestants participate in various challenges such as replicating steamy love scenes or skydiving in a gown.
"[Sabato is] the 'fantasy man' for many of our viewers, and now that fantasy can become a reality," VH1 vice president Jeff Olde told Variety.
The show is expected to begin shooting in late-2008 and will be produced by Ish Entertainment, the recently-formed company headed by former VH1 progamming executive Michael Hirshorn.
