Berrian goes Hollywood

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings off the field, Bernard Berrian Updated: June 19, 2010 - 6:28 PM

I never knew Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian and Cincinnati's Chad Ochocinco were such good buddies. Until now.

VH1 issued a press release that the Bengals wide receiver is set to star in a reality competition called "Ochocinco: The ultimate catch." The show will debut on July 11 and Berrian will play a role in helping Ochocinco as he "evaluates 85 women vying for his heart at a 'dating camp.'"

According to the release, Ochocino will pick 17 women to advance to the next round of the competition and compete in his bracket-style dating tournament. Contestants will compete each week (we are not kidding) for a "game ball."

Berrian had mentioned on his Twitter account that he was filming something this offseason but I don't recall him mentioning Ochocinco. It's very possible  I just overlooked that.
