Viewers will select five men for I Love New York 2, which tapes in July

Viewers will select five cast members for a second season of I Love New York 2. A new casting web site for the show allows viewers to both apply to be, and vote for, potential suitors, and says that “the top five misters with the most votes will be vying for New York’s affection on television in I Love New York 2.”

A separate casting notice is also circulating, and the site’s blog says that the five men selected via the site will only be “some” of I Love New York 2‘s full cast.

Casting producers write that “fans of the show and of New York have truly been amazing and have built such an awesome community. We couldn’t be more thrilled than to return the favor by putting some of the casting decisions in YOUR hands! We know you will not let us down (at least you better not, or we are never doing this again!!!).”

In a promotional video for the show that has apparently aired on VH1 (and that TMZ has it online), Tiffany/New York says that even though Tango dumped her, “I’m staying optimistic, so I’m going to give this love thing another try. This time, the only difference is, I’m coming to you guys for help.”

According to its rules, the web site, ILoveNewYork2.com, is an “audition and selection process,” and men ages 21 and up are invited to submit videos. Viewers who register can vote for guys, although “Voting is limited to 1 vote per person / per computer / per day.”

The rules also say that production for the show is “currently anticipated to be July 2 through 27.”
