Flavor of Love (season 2) is the second season of the VH1 reality television series entitled Flavor of Love, in which Flavor Flav brings female contestants into his mansion to compete for his love. The second season first aired weekly from August 6, 2006 to October 29, 2006, with a total of twelve episodes. During the first season reunion, Hoopz announced that her relationship with Flavor Flav was over, saying “It’s like that, but it’s not like that.” When discussing the upcoming season, Flav emphatically told the producers “No more gold diggers!” Filming began in May 2006 and consisted of an 11 episode season, with another episode for a reunion show. VH1 uploaded videos of contestant auditions on IFilm and encouraged viewers to rank the contestants. The show premiered with 3.3 million viewers. The format of the show largely stayed the same as the first season, with the exception of Flav’s deliberations with Big Rick as to who he would keep or send home before the actual ceremony; this angle was dropped during the second season. The second series’ season finale was the second highest non-sports basic cable program of the year drawing over 7.5 million viewers which is the highest rated show in VH1 history.
