'Millionaire' Evan Marriott & 'Bachelorette' Trista Rehn to appear in KFC chicken commercials
By Reality TV World staff, 03/11/2003
KFC has announced that "Joe Millionaire" Evan Marriott and "Bachelorette" Trista Rehn have been selected to join existing pitchman Jason Alexander in two upcoming television commercial spots hawking KFC Boneless Wings.
The two versions of the commercial, created by BBDO New York, feature Alexander interacting with either Trista or Evan. While the two reality show stars were selective when choosing their guys or gals, in both ads it's obvious they crave the taste of the new Boneless Wings. Each ad ends with either Marriott or Rehn affirming their love for KFC Boneless Wings and Alexander adding comic commentary about the two reality TV stars' experiences.
KFC's Boneless Wings also marks the first time that Trista and Evan appear in national TV advertising. The commercials will debut on Monday, March 17 during primetime on network television. The thirty second spots will air from March 17 through April 27 during popular primetime programming including "American Idol," "Friends" and "CSI." A condensed fifteen second version will air throughout the same time period.
