MTV has announced the second season of From G's to Gents will premiere with a special 90-minute episode on Tuesday, February 10 at 10PM ET/PT.
Similar to its first season last summer, From G's to Gents upcoming second installment will follow a group of gruff male contestants as they participate in a series of weekly challenges designed to test everything from style and etiquette to chivalry and business.
Throughout their journey, the contestants will be mentored by first-season host Fonzworth Bentley -- who previously worked as the personal assistant for Sean "Diddy" Combs and appeared on MTV's Making the Band reality series.
In the end, the contestant deemed to have made the greatest transformation will earn $100,000.
In addition to reprising his hosting role, Bentley was also tapped to serve as a producer for the show's second edition.
"From G's To Gents is not just another television show for me and the crew, it is a transformational program whose desire is to help young men expand their choices in life," said Bentley. "It was important for me to be a part of the production team so that I can add another layer of support to our mission."
The 10-episode series is produced by MTV, Cris Abrego Productions and FoxxKing Entertainment, with Abrego, Jamie Foxx, Marcus King and Ben Samek serving as executive producers.
