Flavor of Love 2 women’s “screen test” videos released

VH1 is starting to hype Flavor of Love 2 already. Applications were due earlier this month, and now the network has posted “screen test” videos of three potential cast members online.

The videos are posted on VH1’s broadband site and on iFilm, and viewers are asked to give feedback on the women. In a press release, VH1 says that “producers are currently casting and your input on our message boards may help decide who makes it in the second season!”

Of course, there’s that word “may,” and the iFilm page has a pretty significant disclaimer: “The final casting decision will be made by VH1 and the producers in their sole discretion, and may or may not correspond to the ranking of the videos.” Also, if the women turn out to be psychologically fit and free of all mental defects, they’ll be eliminated before the show even begins.
