3.3 Million VH1 Viewers Tune In For Flavor Of Love 2, Get Literal ‘No. 2′

We thought reality television had reached rock bottom long ago. It appears we were, ahh, wrong.

On Sunday, VH1′s premiere of Flavor of Love 2 starring Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav — the reality show in which the rapper seeks a discerning lady-friend — was watched by 3.3 million viewers, a record coup for the network. However, it was an entirely different experience for one contestant. During the episode, the contestant — “Somethin’” — lost control of her bowels. Shockingly, VH1 producers decided to include it. Welcome to the Terrordome — literally.

The incident effectively makes fending off those “The Shit They Show on TV Nowadays” dissertations a lost cause.
