Jenny McCarthy is going back to her roots -- the multitalentedactress/author/comedian, who got her start co-hosting the MTV matchmaking showSingled Out, has signed on to host season two of the NBC reality show Love inthe Wild.
According to EW, Lovein the Wild pairs up contestants in a series of wilderness-basedchallenges, with the ultimate goal of making love connections. So it's like The Bachelor meets Survivor! McCarthy and company will start shooting on location inthe Dominican Republic this month. Season one (yes, apparently this show hasbeen on for a whole season already – did anyonewatch it?) was hosted by Darren McMullen and filmed in Costa Rica.
This is a big year for McCarthy. Not only will she behosting Love in the Wild, but she'llalso be hosting her very own show, aptly titled The Jenny McCarthy Show, on VH1 later this year. That show will bemore of a talk show than a reality show, and the "talk" with centeraround everything pop culture. Is it too soon to set my DVR to record that? 'Causeit sounds awesome.
Will you be tuning in to season two of Love in the Wild?
