Flavor of Love 2 will debut online Wednesday

The long-awaited return of Flavor of Love is officially scheduled for Sunday night, but VH1 is building buzz by releasing the show online four days early. The 90-minute season premiere will be on V-Spot tomorrow.

This is part of VH1’s ongoing efforts to tease us before the second season begins; earlier, “screen test” videos for three women were released online.

VH1 will also offer the episodes online, but only for a small window of time each week. According to a press release, “each episode will be available on VSPOT in its entirety for 48 hours every Wednesday following its Sunday night broadcast.” There will also be “‘extras’ each week including, never-before-seen footage from the show and aftershow segments hosted by ‘Goldie’ from season one.”
