Summary of Season 1 (2006) - 3 discs

Much like "The Bachelor," this 10-part reality series pits young women against one another to win the heart (and clock) of a man -- in this case, it's Flavor Flav (of Public Enemy fame). After his ill-fated relationship with Brigitte Nielsen played out on VH1's "Strange Love," Flav is looking for a new lady among 20 hopeful contenders. He puts them through their paces, including a lie-detector test and a cooking competition judged by his mother.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the show's female contestants perform challenges and go on dates with Flavor Flav (rapper and star of The Surreal Life and Strange Love), who will, by the end of the series, choose one to be his girlfriend. In their attempt to win his heart, the women degrade themselves and put each other down. Although teens will want to watch (it's like train-wreck TV -- you can't look away), much of this cartoonish, intentionally over-the-top show's content is wildly inappropriate for kids, and it definitely promotes an unhealthy view of male/female relationships.

Sexual Content

Plenty of skimpy outfits (lingerie, etc.) and sexual innuendo. In one episode, for example, Flav -- in an attempt to ferret out a solution to a problem -- says, "I'm going to put my finger on it; hopefullly she'll let me put my finger on it."


Not applicable


"Sluts," "bitch," and "s--tless" are used.

Social Behavior

Sends the message that it's OK to step all over someone and put them down to win a contest and that it's OK to do anything to get a man. Lots of conflict between the contestants, too -- spitting, slapping, cat fights, etc. One contestant defecated on the floor because she "couldn't hold it."


Flav is a rap artist; the show helps promote him as a "brand." He's also done two other shows for VH1.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Plenty of social drinking; contestants sometimes appear very intoxicated. Smoking is common.
