Rocker-turned reality television personality Bret Michaels has a new TV credit to his name: guest correspondent for The Weather Channel.

The Rock of Love and Celebrity Apprentice alum was featured on the channel's "Weather Warrior" segment last week after submitting footage of the extreme weather he encountered on tour through the middle America.

The first part of his footage was taken from his tour bus. He said, "This is Bret Michaels. I am on tour and heading into one of the most insane storms I've ever seen.

"You've got to see this lightning, check it out. Woah. The wind's gotta be blowing at least 40 mph. All kinds of insane lightning strikes. This is awesome. Scary, but cool."

The clip then shows Michaels boarding a private plan for the next part of his trip. The footage taken from the skies showed miles of fields and towns flooded by a massive storm.

Michaels said, "We came through that storm in Omaha. The only thing you're seeing is rooftops of some of these buildings. Bridges gone. Alot of good people here, including my sisters, they've been hit hard by the flooding. So let's hope for the best."

Michaels' next television appearance is on Monday night's episode of ABC's Bachelor Pad.
