From The Hollywood Reporter:
VH1 is teaming with Chad Ochocinco for a dating reality show.
The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver will appear in a show that applies a sports bracket-style system to a dating show. In “The Tournament,” Ochocinco will travel the U.S. meeting potential dates, then will narrow down the group to four women representing the Northern, Western, Southern and Central part of the country. The 16 chosen will then compete in a “tournament-style dating competition.”
“Chad Ochocinco’s bigger-than-life personality on and off the field and his notorious skills as a social networker, connecting daily with his fans, makes him a perfect fit for VH1,” said Jeff Olde, executive vp of programming, VH1. “This show will not only give viewers a look inside his professional life, but also reveal his softer more romantic side when playing a very different kind of game.”
