Rock of Love with Bret Michaels is an American reality television dating game show.

We have been taking a much needed break from the spotlight and cameras to get to know each other.
In the show, eligible women live on tour buses and travel with Bret Michaels, competing for his attention and affection.
The second season featured another set of 20 women.
This time around, Michaels chose 37-year-old Ambre Lake from Los Angeles, California.
She also blogged about her relationship with Bret saying –Bret and I are doing great! I guess I had that impression that this was the end, because you said you weren’t going to do this again at the beginning of the season. After the Ambre thing, I didn’t know if I could do it all over again. I’ll see almost all of these girls again at my shows or just hanging out. And another thing is that I’m getting much better at advice than I am at finding love. Everyone got married, had kids, got engaged, got back with their boyfriend. Each week, the women face challenges, the winner of which gets to go on a date with Michaels.Some of the challenges were based on situations that they might encounter if chosen to be Michaels' girlfriend.
