Travel Channel has formally announced that Bridget's Sexiest Beaches, a new travel series starring soon-to-be former The Girls Next Door star Bridget Marquardt, will premiere Thursday, March 12 at 10PM ET/PT.
Each Bridget's Sexiest Beaches episode will follow Marquardt as she travels to some of the world's most exotic seaside destinations to sample indigenous cuisine, check out local fashions, uncover each region's beach biography and find the best place to party.
Some of the activities Marquardt will undertake on the show will include mud bath sunbathing and taking flying lessons in Croatia; jamming on the steel drum and caving dining in Jamaica; rolling Havana cigars in Georgetown and limbo dancing by a bonfire in Turks & Caicos; flightseeing by para-glider in Malibu; shark hugging in Ochos Rios; and taking trapeze lessons on Venice Beach.
"We are thrilled to work with Bridget as she embodies the sense of freedom and escape that truly captures the entertaining spirit of the Travel Channel," said network executive Michael Klein.
"She has the unique ability to bring out the best in people while fully embracing the moment. Her humor, sense of adventure and passion for new experiences makes Bridget's Sexiest Beaches one of our most anticipated series this year."
Marquardt had previously teased the show's debut during a December interview with former Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous host Robin Leach, in which she said The Girls Next Door's sixth season was not scheduled to begin shooting "for a while." Marquardt had also disclosed that she would be moving out of the Playboy mansion in January.
Bridget's Sexiest Beachesis being produced by Prometheus Entertainment, with Kevin Burns and Charlie Parsons serving as executive producers.
