VH1 confirms second season of 'I Love New York,' begins casting
By Christopher Rocchio and Steve Rogers, 05/03/2007
VH1 has announced it has begun casting a second batch of potential suitors for Tiffany "New York" Pollard and confirmed that although its pickup hasn't been formally announced, a second edition of I Love New York will premiere later this year.
I Love New York's first season winner Patrick "Tango" Hunter asked for Pollard's hand in marriage during the finale, but withdrew his marriage proposal to her during I Love New York's reunion special. Unable to find love in the first season of her own series and having the dubious honor of being spurned by Flava Flav on the first (and only) two season of VH1's Flavor of Love, Pollard is apparently willing to give love another try in-front of the cameras.
"There will be a Season 2," I Love New York's VH1 publicist told Reality TV World on Wednesday. "We don't have a premiere date yet but it will be later this year."
This time however, it appears Pollard will have some help in picking the guy who's best suited for her, as five contestants who will appear on I Love New York's second season will be chosen by fans via a website designed solely for that purpose.
Fans can nominate themselves for consideration to appear in I Love New York's second season by uploading a video profile, biographical information and photos to ilovenewyork2.com. Fans will also have the ability to vote on which potential suitors make the cut, as online casting will be determined during three rounds of voting between Sunday, April 29 and Friday, June 15. Following the first round, the 60 bachelors with the most votes will advance to the next round.
Additional details and information about each round of voting is available on ilovenewyork2.com. In addition to the online casting, traditional casting calls are scheduled to be held in New York, New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, and Nashville in the coming month.
