For those people who didn't connect with the extreme dating show "Love in the Wild" last season, they might want to give it another try. Not only does the series have a new host in Jenny McCarthy, but the producers have revamped the location and accommodations, as well. In a recent conference call interview, McCarthy talked about how Season 2 will improve upon the original installment.
'Love in the Wild' Will Be Changing Locations in Season 2
The first run of "Love in the Wild" was shot in the jungles of Costa Rica. While it was a stunningly beautiful location, it was a bit harsher of an environment than might have been anticipated. As a result couples had a harder time feeling romance amidst the bugs and oppressive heat.
As McCarthy explained, this season's locale is a little more lover friendly, saying that the Dominican Republic destination "is still known for its jungles. But the beaches there are just breathtaking, some of the most beautiful in the world. So this way it had a better combination of giving them the adventures, but at least being able to have that beautiful sunset to get romantic with later on."
Jenny McCarthy Relies on Her Dating Show Experience on 'Love in the Wild'
No stranger to hosting dating shows, McCarthy revealed that she wanted to bring a bit of her "Singled Out" sassiness to "Love in the Wild." She confessed, "Looking at the show I knew that I could cheer on the girls, I could kind of make fun of some of the guys. I can have fun with them. I can give them wrong direction and then tell them I'm kidding. So I kind of messed with them like a big sister would, and it just added a little bit more flavor to the series I believe."
'Love in the Wild' Will Feature Less Than Stellar Accommodations.
But perhaps the biggest shift this time is the accommodations in which the contestants will be staying. In the first season, teammates would retire each night to a simple but comfortable bungalow.
This time around, the daily challenge's losing team will retreat to what McCarthy described as "a wood-plank floor with a leaf over their heads." So not only is pecking order at risk, but couples will be driven by a desire for comfort, as well.
See if Jenny McCarthy helps the lovesick contestants navigate the juggle when " Love in the Wild " returns on June 5 at 9pm EST/8 pm CST on NBC.
