For the second episode of I Love New York, New York challenged the men
to participate in a beauty pageant. Three former beauty pageant
winners helped to train the guys. Mr. Boston wore a thong for the
swimsuit competition, and even though it impressed the judges, it
wasn’t enough for him to make the finals. The five finalists from the
swimsuit competition were Whiteboy, Real, 12 Pack, Onix, and Romance.
In the second round, the five finalists participated in a question and answer period. The fourth runner up was Real, the third runner up was Romance, the second runner up was Onix, the first runner up was 12 Pack, and the winner was Whiteboy. After the pageant, Trendz passed out his CDs to the beauty pageant women. Pootie later told New York that Trendz was just there to promote his music.
Not to be outdone, Romance told New York that 12 Pack had a girlfriend. New York took Onix,12 Pack, and Whiteboy on a beach date. On the date, New York confronted 12 Pack about having a girlfriend, and 12 Pack denied it and told her to cut him if she didn’t believe him. New York brought Romance and 12 Pack together to try to get to the bottom of the accusation, but they both stuck to their stories. To see if Token was attracted to her, New York asked Token for a kiss, but he only kissed her on the cheek.
At the elimination ceremony, New York gave “I Love New York” chains to Whiteboy, Real, Tweed, Rico, Mr. Boston, Tango, Heat, Pootie, Bonez, Chance, Onix, and 12 Pack. New York eliminated Trendz, Token, and Romance. After the elimination, Romance said “I haven’t been rejected a lot in life, but the way that she just kicked me out of there is the most rejected that I’ve ever been. I did nothing but leave my family to come here and love her, and for her to just squash me like that, unprofessional.”
