VH1's Flavor of Love
is easily the classiest reality show currently airing on television. It tells the touching story of a successful man who was never able to find that special someone, and follows his attempts to bond with a variety of upstanding young ladies. Watching Flavor Flav
's plight is akin to reading a great Jane Austen novel, and you can't help but root for a special girl to melt his heart and be welcomed into his kingdom. Perhaps one of the high class ladies featured in Flavor of Love
3, premiering Monday, February 11, will make her way into Flavor Flav's heavily guarded heart.
However, which fine paragon of virtue will it be? To help us decide, the fine folks at VH1 have unveiled the 20 contestants who will be curtseying their way into the deepest areas of Flav's soul.
is a 30-year-old who grew up in the Bronx. She says that her upbringing gave her street smarts and made her a bit rowdy.
is proud of the junk in her trunk, hence her moniker. She's a 26-year-old Texas gal who has a sweet, outgoing personality.
is one woman who is worth a lot more than ten cents. She's a 22-year-old from Atlanta who comes equipped with the tired reality show catchphrase, "I'm not on the show to make friends."
is also from Atlanta. She's a passionate Latina who describes herself as aggressive, rude, fast, and hyper.
is a 25-year-old real estate agent from Mississippi, and she also tastes great when poured over turkey. At age five she changed the pronunciation of her name from "Yvonne" to "Y-Vonne."
comes, oddly enough, from Russia. No, just kidding, she's from Georgia. She claims she's intimidated by loud, aggressive people, which makes me think she's on the wrong show. This 27-year-old doesn't stand a chance.
is a part time DJ and a full time Hooters waitress in Michigan, which gives her that extra touch of class that Flavor Flav requires in his women. People often tell this 21-year-old that she looks like Paris Hilton, which is incredibly insulting.
is a bit plus-sized, and also incredibly bubbly and upbeat. The 28-year-old California native considers herself a full time valley girl.
When she's not pulling Santa's sleigh, 26-year-old Prancer
can often be found drunk and wearing sneakers with wheels in them.
, who certainly isn't one, wears a grill and has 13 tattoos. The 26-year-old hails from Houston, Texas.
, who is from, um, Saint Louis, is a salon manager and party girl who is proud of the fact that she doesn't drink. The 22-year-old has over 40 Barbie dolls and considers herself a local celebrity in her Missouri town.
is another Bronx girl. She'll lie, cheat, and steal to win Flav's affections if she has to.
One girl who must have an interesting childhood trauma is Seezinz
, who says she's afraid of hair and intimidated by overweight people. The 25-year-old Maryland native also claims she's a sophisticated woman.
considers herself to be classy and beautiful. The 23-year-old Rhode Island girl was voted on to the show with over 13,000 online votes.
considers herself a "masterpiece," but then she'd probably say the same thing about a movie like Meet the Spartans
. The Chicago native can sing, tap dance, rap, act, and model.
isn't holding the letter E hostage, she's busy as a single mother of two. The 26-year-old from San Diego doesn't take crap from anyone.
and Thing 2
are 26-year-old twins who hail from California. They finish each other's sentences, dress the same, and share the same laugh, which is totally creepy.
shouldn't be confused with the arachnid of the same name. After all, arachnids can't wear watches, and this Texan has over 60 of them in her obsessive collection.
wants a man who is in touch with his spiritual side, which leaves me to wonder why the 24-year-old Chicago girl is on this show. She also works at Hooters, so I guess that explains it.
is, weirdly enough, from Georgia, and this time I'm not kidding. The 23-year old describes herself as a tomboy in a Barbie body who always has to get the last word in. Can you guess where she works? Hooters!
