Flavor of Love

When did VH1 go so horribly wrong? Was it "Late World With Zach" or I Love the '80s Part 15? Anyway it's come to this, "the Flavor of Love." The set up is simple, it's a bachelor type show featuring Public Enemy's Flavor Flav. Tell me this was remotely possible in say, 1989. Flash up a decade or so and he's a catch? Come on now...

Despite his partial grasp on reality, it's a total Lowered Expectations fest to see him traipsing around in a smoking jacket and a Viking helmet in an attempt to be bon vivant. It's mind boggling to decipher excatly what breakdown in entertainment and reality caused this to happen. You know what else is shocking? Women with straight faces acting like he's a keeper. Again, I'm no Billy Dee Williams but the very idea...

Like all Bachelor shows, a lot of the women are psycho circuses in their own right. Of course being a jerkazoid, Flav sent a few of the hotter ones packing during the first clock ceremony. The remaining ones? They're totally insane. Names and nicknames all blur into one desperate woman vying for the attention of a Brokedown Bachelor. Excuses, chemistry and clap trap about destiny aside, Flavor Flav has too much baggage to be "set up."


An Idiot's Take: Well if he's really looking, I'd say the best person for Flavor Flav is a woman who doesn't go on a show trying to date Flavor Flav.

Grade: C- It's bad but not "Joey" bad so I can't complain that much...
