Octomom to Star in New Reality Dating Show

Three regular guys will compete to win over the mom of 14

Bachelor Number 1: What would you rather do on a Saturday night: dinner and a movie; pizza and bowling; or change diapers and give baths to 14 squirming kids?

Bachelor Number 2: How would you try to turn me on: bringing me roses and chocolate; cuddling and kissing; or unloading the dishwasher and then letting me take a nap?

Bachelor Number 3: Why are you running screaming from the room?

Brace yourself, people. Octomom, a.k.a. Nadya Suleman, is about to star on a new celebrity dating show in which three suitors will try to capture her heart. Called Celebridate, the show will also follow other celebrities as three regular people not in the limelight vie for their affections, or get eliminated, according to PopEater.

Shockingly, (or perhaps not!) Suleman, 34, has little experience with relationships. "I've never dated," she tells the website. "This is actually the first time I have dated in my life. I've had one boyfriend, it was very fascinating to me; it was an unforgettable experience. I am painfully shy and anxious ... that's just my personality."

And a guy is going to have to get used to some of her other quirks, and we're not just talking about her large 14-child brood (which includes her famous 2-year-old octuplets).

"It's difficult for me to interact and to have eye contact," she laments.

Suleman joined the show -- set to air on HDNet in October and hosted by Roger Lodge, who also hosted Blind Date -- after being approached about the possibility.

"I was lucky enough to be invited to be a part of it," Suleman says. "I have not watched TV in almost a decade, but I might just tune into this one! This is called Celebridate and I don't perceive myself to be a celebrity, but I guess they do. To a certain degree, I am in the public eye."

Suleman was set to be on another reality show about the lives of her family, called OctoMom: Me & My Fourteen Kids, a few years ago but that one never made it on the air.

So we'll have to wait and watch this version to find out if Suleman ends up with the man of her dreams. No word on what, if anything, the suitor wins other than Nadya's heart. (Although it does seem like a prize incentive might help attract potential suitors!)
