With so many reality shows out there nowadays, viewers definitely have an opinion of what they'd like to watch and what they'd like to watch when they're dead. Perhaps unfortunately for Flavor Flav
, his show is one of those shows that people would prefer to see when they won't be able to watch anything anymore.
Flavor of Love
, his reality dating show which recently concluded its run on VH1, was voted as the year's worst reality program, according to a survey organized by AOL. The poll, which was conducted on July 9-23, attracted more than 1.3 million votes. More than a third of respondents—34% to be exact—thought that Flavor of Love
was the worst reality program this season. 57% of pollsters also voted the show as the one that people would least like to go on, and 44% thought the show had the scariest star.
For those who've never heard of the show, Flavor of Love
is similar to The Bachelor
: twenty ladies vie for Flavor Flav's heart as they live together in a California mansion. The 49-year-old rapper chose, however, not to marry or date any of the winners of the show's three seasons, deciding instead to marry the mother of his seventh baby. The show aired its last episode on May 26, although by then it has already spurred many spin-offs, including I Love New York
, I Love Money
, and most recently, New York Goes to Hollywood
Perhaps Flavor Flav should have taken a cue from American Idol
, which was voted as the best reality show by 33% of the survey participants. Perhaps he could have emulated Simon Cowell
, who was voted as best reality TV villain by 39% of pollsters. But he shouldn't follow Paula Abdul
, if the survey is to be followed: 42% of voters thought she was the worst reality TV judge.
But this is probably the least of Flavor Flav's worries. The show is over, and he's going to get married, provided everything goes well. In his own words: “I feel good right now that I got my true love. I wanna be with her forever and ever and ever, man.”
