Frank Maresca, also known as Frank The Entertainer, officially returns to our TV screens as VH1 launches its latest reality dating series, Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair, tonight. The premiere alone captures the very essence of the show, with Frank trying to find love among 15 bachelorettes while still living at home with his parents. Yes, you heard me right. Thirty one year-old Frank is jobless and still lives in his parents' basement! Not exactly your ideal man but that these facts don't seem to stop these ladies from appearing on this show and from fighting for Frank's attention.
While finding love is the goal on Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair
, the main objective is actually to get Frank out of his parents' basement. And to make sure this is what's accomplished by the end of the 10-episode series, his father Gary and mother Susan are stepping in to help in the decision-making process.
Sifting through the 15 ladies, however, is easier said than done. The cast includes plenty of colorful personalities, including a virgin, a resident kook, a Famke Janssen ringer, and someone who might end up to be a lesbian, just to name a few. But in the end, Frank sends two girls home in what he calls a "very nerve-wracking a little bit" elimination.
"He was taggin' me with unexpected questions," says eliminated contestant Stephanie, who ultimately proved herself unworthy by not being able to say why Frank was eliminated from I Love New York 2.
Kari, on the other hand, is the other girl whom Frank thought was cute but felt no connection with. Did Frank make the right decision?Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair
airs every Sunday on VH1.
