VH1 Brings the 'Flavor' Again

"Flavor of Love" brought big, record-setting ratings, but its star ultimately didn't find the woman he was searching for. Which is pretty much the best of both worlds for the show's network, VH1, because now there can be a second season.

And indeed there will be: VH1 has ordered a second season of "Flavor of Love," in which rapper Flavor Flav meets a bevy of women and, "Bachelor" style, narrows the field until he finds that special woman.

Or not. The show's first season ended with Flav picking contestant Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, but the two later "realized that their relationship would not work out," VH1 says. So it's back into the breach for the one-time Public Enemy star, whose relationship with VH1 also includes a season of "The Surreal Life" and "Strange Love," which followed his post-"Surreal" relationship with actress Brigitte Nielsen.

"After spending so much time with Flavor Flav on 'Surreal Life' and 'Flavor of Love,' we shared his frustration at not having found love," executive producers Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego say. "Thankfully, the success of the first season and Flav's popularity enables us to have a second chance at finding him the right woman."

The first-season finale of "Flavor of Love" drew close to 5.9 million viewers last month, the biggest audience in VH1's history. The show also scored a 3.5 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic, another VH1 record. Three of the show's 10 episodes rank among the network's 10 all-time best commercial broadcasts.

Season two of the show will begin production in Los Angeles in May.
