VH1 has now unveiled the cast of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch! The dating show follows NFL superstar and former Dancing With The Stars alum Chad Ochocinco as he tries to find love amongst 85 women. Yes 85 women.

However Chad, who was romantically linked with his DWTS partner Cheryl Burke earlier this year, will be eliminating majority of those women to get to his final 17 top choices in the premiere episode of the show, which debuts tonight July 11th at 9/8c on VH1.


There was a minor scandal involving Chad and his choice of women that hit the blogs as filming began on the show last month. A contestant on the show and someone working in production alleged that Chad did not want any African American women on his show, and that he wanted “all the black girls to be “cut”, except for 1.”

Chad allegedly wanted to keep the Latina and brunette White girls because he believed they are “better” for him. The producers had to Chad into keeping two black women as part of his final 17.

Chad did deny the claims, stating that “certain girls” were mad they got sent home and that he’s colorblind. Oddly enough, a look at the 17 finalists show only 3 black women.

Also premiering tonight is the second season of Terell Owen’s reality show – The T.O. Show. VH1 promises season 2 will feature TO leaving Buffalo, rocking a wig, possibly rekindling an old flame, all while embracing fatherhood. Also returning are TO’s two longtime friends, Kita Williams and Monique Jackson, to yell at him help him make better life decisions.The new season premieres tonight at at 10:30/9:30c.
