With the Rock of Love Bus finale airing tonight, Bret Michaels opens up about the woman who won his heart this season, as well as why he chose to find love on TV. Judging by his answer as to the status of his relationship with the show’s winner, it might be safe to say Rock of Love Bus 4 might be in the works. You be the judge.
Why did you decide to do Rock of Love when it started?
Bret Michaels: When they first asked me to do the show, I was reluctant. So I sort of passed and said do this Rock of Love concept, but it’s not for me. I had just come out of this relationship, have two daughters and like my privacy. I’m not a recluse, but I like time with my kids. Three months later, VH1 came back and said you’re the one we want to do it. You throw a good party, you can hold half a conversation and still got a few brain cells left [Laughs].
How would you sum up your experience with this season’s girls?
Michaels: I don’t know where they got the girls, but they were fun and crazy. The big flip of the show is I went in there to be the rock star who dates these girls, but in some sick twist, I became the voice of reason — which is really scary! It’s almost like I was the therapist and the girls were crazy rock stars.
So can you say if there was a solid connection with the winner of this upcoming finale?
Michaels: I definitely felt love at the end of all three seasons. Or, I felt lust and a lot of like. It was the same feeling I had at the end of the first two seasons. I go into these relationships with the same intention, but whether or not they last is a whole different ball game.
