Los Angeles, CA – March 20, 2017 – Love can be hard to find and as a celebrity under the glaring lights and media microscope finding that special someone can be even harder. Last year the world witnessed Pauly D and Aubrey O’Day fall in love on the first season of “Famously Single.” The popular series returns for a second season with seven new celebrities and one returning lovelorn star, who have all lived through public romances, even more public break-ups and want to learn how to finally pick the right match. The celebrity cast will live together in a downtown Los Angeles loft while taking part in dating exercises and coaching sessions with relationship experts Dr. Darcy Sterling and Robert Mack, as well as going on real dates seeking the love they’ve lacked until now. The second season of “Famously Single” premieres Sunday, July 9th at 10 PM ET/PT on E!
In the season premiere, the new cast of celebrities move into the loft and sit down for their first session with Dr. Darcy. After just one day in the house, sparks begin to fly and couples begin to form as the stars start to realize the fastest way out of being famously single might be each other. Through the eight, hour-long episodes, viewers will watch some of Hollywood’s most notorious daters be pushed to their limits as they embark on a journey to heal their past and move towards finally finding true love.
The second season of “Famously Single” will feature:
Calum Best– Returning for a second round on “Famously Single,” this British model and party boy couldn’t ditch the wild girls. Is he ready this time around?
Malika Haqq – Though Khloe Kardashian’s BFF has experienced true heartbreak in the recent past, she’s looking forward to the future with an open heart.
Chad Johnson – After two rebellious stints on “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise,” this notorious reality TV singleton isn’t ready to give up on love. He’s back and isn’t going anywhere.
Ronnie Magro-Ortiz – Gym. Tan. Dating? The “Jersey Shore” veteran is back on the market in hopes to find love and avoid the grenades along the way.
David Mcintosh– A British ex-military and security operative turned actor and fitness model, he leaves nothing to the imagination. Constantly shirtless, he’s looking for love while wearing the least amount of clothing possible.
Tiffany Pollard– Constantly cycling through reality shows looking for love, she’s hoping this is her final destination. After participating in “Flavor of Love,” “I Love New York” and “Celebrity Big Brother” she still owns her self-proclaimed nickname the “HBIC” (Head B*tch In Charge).
Karina Smirnoff – The “Dancing with the Stars” pro dancer is looking to eliminate her troubled dating history after the nation witnessed her relationship unfold in season 18 of the competition show. With multiple ex-fiancées, she’s ready to move onward and upward.
