NEW YORK (CBS) NFL football hero Chad Ochocinco is truly living up his last name.
That's because the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver is now the star of his reality show "Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch," where the player gets to choose a mate from among a pool of 85 (in Spanish, that's "Ocho-cinco") women. The show debuted Sunday night with a 90-minute episode.
In the opening episode, Ochocinco pared the group of women down to 17. The football star said of the women up for grabs: "Man, I haven't seen this many girls on a football field since the last time we played the Steelers."
This is not Ochocinco's first foray into television. Many will remember this spring when he was a contestant on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars."
Ochocinco is not the only NFL star to debut a new reality show on VH1. He is also joined by Terrell Owens, whose own reality series immediately trailed Ochocinco's show.
