‘Bachelor’ Cruises To Romantic New Gig

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Former TV bachelor Alex Michel is cruising into a romantic new gig – but he won’t be tending to his own love life on the job.

Michel – who was the very first single stud to appear on The Bachelor 12 seasons ago – has joined Princess Cruises’ “Department of Romance,” a panel of noted romance experts which includes sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer, and The Love Boat actor Gavin McLeod.

Michel’s first duty on board is to help judge the “Are You The Greatest Romantic” online video contest, in which contenders share their love stories in hopes of scoring a prize package that includes a luxurious Princess cruise for two.

The five video finalists will be announced today (Apr. 1) on princess.com/romance, and the public can vote on a winner through April 14.

Michel is enjoying the contest and believes cruises are synonymous with romance, adding, “A cruise is a complete escape from reality and puts you in a romantic state of mind.”

Despite his amorous gig, he’s not planning to sail off into the sunset with a partner any time soon.

Michel says, “I’ll do my best on the Department of Romance, but I’m not trying to improve my own love life on the job!”
