Last summer NBC premiered a new dating show, Love In The Wild. The premise of the show was to drop sexy singles into the jungle, in the hopes some would find love. The singles paired up into teams and competed in various competitions in the jungle. It was basically a mix of Survivor and The Bachelor. Each week the winning couple would go to the “Oasis” for a romantic night away. The other couples would decide if they wanted to stay with their current partner or possibly switch to a new person. The person who didn’t have a match,would be (humiliated)eliminated. The grand prize, hopefully love and a trip around the world with your partner.
On Thursday an NBC executive, Paul Telegdy, announced that Jenny McCarthy would be the host for the second season of Love In The Wild. The network feels that Jenny McCarthy is a “versatile” choice and she has experience with dating shows. Remember Jenny’s MTV days? Paul also said, “She brings a measure of unpredictability to the show’s unique format and we are thrilled to feature her charisma, enthusiasm and magnetism in the adventure series.”
So how does Jenny McCarthy feel about her new hosting gig? Jenny joked, “I wanted to apply as a contestant and ended up with a job.”
I think Jenny McCarthy is a great choice as a host for Love In The Wild. What do you think? Leave us a comment below?
