Show Summary

Over the past three years 100 plus young men and women have competed on eight record-breaking VH1 shows (Flavor of Love, I Love New York, Rock of Love and Real Chance of Love). All of them were on a quest to find true love. Unfortunately, very few of them found it. Now, the show that gave reality's biggest love seekers a chance to win something else (a large sum of money), is back! "I Love Money 2" gives 17 new, wild and crazy, All-Star cast members from these "of Love" series, the chance to battle it out for a quarter of a million dollars. Last time most of these cast members competed it was for the heart of Bret Michaels, New York, Flavor Flav, Real or Chance, but on "I Love Money" the stakes are arguably higher - and definitely "greener" so the competition will be fiercer than it has ever been. The cast (made up of favorites like Tailor Made, Buddha, Becky Buckwild, Saaphyri, Frenchy, and "I Love Money: Season 1" veterans Heat and The Entertainer) will pack their bags and head to Beautiful Huatulco, Mexico. It is here in this exotic, tropical location that the will live together while competing against each other. Each hour-long episode will include an outrageous challenge, inspired by some of the most famous and iconic moments from the "of Love" shows. From battling with giant boxing gloves in a ring, suspended high above the ocean, to competing in a Big Boob Triathlon, to diving in an enormous mud pit in search of gold coins, the action and insanity is like never seen before. Back again to guide these money hungry contestants is host Craig J. Jackson (X-show, 30 Seconds to Fame). However it is not Craig that decides who goes home -- the power is in the contestants' own hands. Specifically, each episode gives a single cast member the power of ultimately deciding who is eliminated. Alliances will be made and broken. Friendships will be formed and shattered. And, once again, love interests will spark up and burn out faster than a match, under the powerful lure of money. It will be a true, cutthroat competition as cast members sharpen their backstabbing skills in the fight for their fortune. It's the cast of eight record-breaking shows rolled into one. It's the audience of eight recording-breaking shows tuning in. It's the hysterical; envelope-pushing content America's come to love. And it's a concept designed to give the biggest characters the biggest challenge of their lives with the ultimate prize -- Money!moreless

    • A very terrible show to me.

      This show is one of the worst shows on VH1.I mean,I think it's not better than that best I Love The New Millenium.It's not even a good reality show like Total Drama Island.It stinks.A show like this would never ever be a very good reality show.VH1 makes the baddest reality shows like Charm School or Rock Of Love or Flavor Of Love.All those shows including this makes VH1 one of the worst reality show makers in the history of worst reality shows.Well,I'm the only one that thinks that and I think that this channel really stinks at making reality shows.moreless
    • a great creative reality show.

      Past contestants from VH1 series Flavor of Love , I Love New York , and Rock of Love battle one another in this reality competition spinoff hosted by Craig J. Jackson. The show takes place on the remote tropical beach paradise of Huatulco, Mexico. Each may have lost on the past shows but this show will give them a chance to battle against one another for a chance to win $250,000.This show is filled with a lot of creative and crazy moments. Even though the commercials give tooo much info......its still a blast to watch. seriously,i love this show.yeah....... lolmoreless
    • One by One they fell like dollar bills off a stripper.

      I didn't watch Flavor of Love, I didn't watch Rock of Love and I sure as _ _ _ _ didn't watch I Love New York but I Love Money is one reality show that has a point. I totally wanted Toastee (the toast master) to win but who didn't know Hoopz was going to take it all? I'm amazed to how long Megan stayed on the show, (never underestimate the blond in the skimpy bikini). So Megan out lasted Real. And Hoopz out lasted Whiteboy, so much for the untouchable stallioneers. I can't wait for the reunion. It'll be green an gold.moreless
    • I Love Money is the return of our favorite VH1 Celebreality-Romantic Reality show characters. However it removes the questionable love scenarios, and goes straight to something more realistic. The love of money.moreless

      Like many people, I was admittedly looking forward to the new VH1 Reality Show: I Love Money. I'll admit to watching all the Flavor of Love, Rock of Love, and I Love New York episodes, and getting behind several of the characters in their quests to find "love." Admittedly the shows were always questionable. Do I really think that Hoopz, Pumkin, or New York wanted anything to do with Flava Flav that wasn't directly related to fame/money/television? No.

      So then you have this show. It completely eliminates the unrealistic romance angle, and gives the contestants something more realistic to fight for. Money. Some of the best characters from all three of the VH1 Celebreality "Love" shows are returned, and they are scheming, backstabbing, and fighting more than ever. It's a formula that admittedly works, and like all the other shows before it, it's a complete guilty pleasure that I promptly watch every Sunday, and frequently catch the reruns that show all week. The show has an odd formula compared to other shows of similar premises. Much like Survivor the contestants were put into two teams. These two teams would nominate a Team Captain every week. The Team Captain often leads the team to victory or failure. Should their team win then they become the "Paymaster." The losing team sends three people to the chopping block, and out of those three people the Paymaster sends one of them home.

      And so it goes on for weeks, until (much like Survivor) the two teams merge into one. Only one can win the $250,000.

      The show has all the alliances, drama, and characters you expect from this type of deal, and I would certainly advise anyone who enjoyed the Rock/Flavor of Love and New York series to tune into this show... it's a better way of keeping these characters going than another season of Flavor of Love.moreless
