Cast announced for Flavor of Love 3, the “final season”

Flavor Flav’s will soon have his third chance at love via his VH1 reality series Flavor of Love, and VH1 has announced the women who will try to win his heart.

Perhaps most newsworthy is the fact that, in a press release, VH1 calls this “[t]he third and final season.” In other words, whatever the outcome, we will not see another Flavor Flav dating show. Ever. Right.

Five of the 20 women were selected by viewers, and all of them have been assigned their ridiculous nicknames, many of which seem to be city names as written by lolcats: Bee-Ex, Bunz, DYMZ, El, Grayve, Hotlanta, Ice, Peechee, Prancer, Q-Tee, Saint Lewis, Savanna, Seezinz, Shore-Tee, Shy, Sinceeer, Thing 1 & Thing 2, Tik, Rayna, and Myammee. If some of them look familiar, Buzz[Killed] suggests why that may be.

While the series debuts Feb. 11, the first episode will appear on a new web site, FlavorofLoveWorld.com, the Friday before that Monday.
