VH1 has announced I Love New York's second season will premiere on Monday, October 8 at 9PM ET/PT.

I Love New York's first season winner Patrick "Tango" Hunter asked for Tiffany "New York" Pollard's hand in marriage during the finale, but withdrew his 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.

However this time her mother Sister Patterson had a hand in selecting some of the contestants who will attempt to woo her daughter.  In addition, five of the 20 contestants who will appear on I Love New York 2 were chosen by fans via a website designed solely for that purpose.

I Love New York's first-season premiere episode in January averaged 4.4 million total viewers, making it the most watched series premiere ever in VH1 history.  The show's April finale was the most watched episode of the series, averaging 4.8 million total viewers.

VH1 had confirmed to Reality TV World in May that I Love New York would be back for a second season.
