Football star and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Chad "Ocho Cinco" Johnson is apparently needs one more thing in his life -- true love.

At least the kind of true love that you can find on a reality dating show.

Ocho Cinco -- or is playing the field during his offseason this year in a new VH1 reality show.

Producers from the show, which doesn't have an official name yet, are in Chicago this weekend seeking women to try and win Ocho Cinco's heart.

The type of contestant VH1 is looking for is described as "single, beautiful women over the age of 21 who think they have what it takes to win the heart of one of football's most electrifying bachelors."

Casting Director Alex Cubalevic says that anyone looking to try out should be able to handle "all that comes with dating a professional athelete."

"At the open call a girl should be dressed hot, full of energy and ready to prove why she would be a perfect match for Chad," Cubalevic says.

Interested women can apply online, or show up at two Chicago open casting calls, April 4th from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. at Ontourage (157 W Ontario) and April 5th from 9 - 11 p.m. at Spybar (646 North Franklin).
