CBS Announces Rockin' Hosts for Rock Star: INXS
Fansofrealitytv.com -- Guitarist Dave Navarro and TV personality Brooke Burke to host upcoming series
Mark Burnett's new series, Rock Star: INXS, has been outfitted with two appropriately rockin' hosts--famed guitarist Dave Navarro and Brooke Burke of the "Wild On. . . ." travel series. The pair can be seen guiding us though the search for a new frontman/woman for Australian rock band INXS, which debuts with a special one hour premiere on Monday, July 11 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), followed by a one-hour broadcast on Tuesday, July 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), and a half-hour edition on Wednesday, July 13 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Tattooed six-stringer Dave Navarro is most famous for his work with the legendary L.A. alternative group, Jane's Addiction, who refreshed alternative rock through their fusion of musical genres--in which Dave's metallic guitar played a large role. He also joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers for their One Hot Minute album and has worked with such diverse artists as Nine Inch Nails, Christina Aguilera, Puffy, Usher, Jay Z, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey. His 2004 wedding to actress Carmen Electra was documented in the MTV seres "Til Death Do Us Part," and Dave also released his first book that year, titled Don't Try This at Home.
Brooke Burke, though not a rocker herself, certainly captures the rock & roll spirit as the adrenaline junkie-tour guide for the travel series "Wild On. . . ." She is also renowned for her top-selling swimsuit calendars, has graced numerous magazine covers, and is regularly ranked in men's magazines as one of the hottest women in the world today. Brooke was most recently honored with a Spike TV video game award for "Best Female Performance" for her work as Rachel Teller in Electronic Arts' street-racing video game, "Need For Speed: Underground 2." She can currently be seen in a new David LaChapelle-directed Burger King commercial and has also launched her own line of beachwear, called "Barely Brooke."
Following the premiere week, Rock Star: INXS will air regularly on Mondays (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Tuesdays (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and Wednesdays (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT). Monday night episodes document the top 15 contestants' relationships and activities together in their Hollywood Hills Home, Tuesday nights are a performance challenge, and Wednesday nights record the weekly results.
