NBC has tapped a well-known television personality with experience in the dating genre to host its adventure dating series "Love in the Wild," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Jenny McCarthy, who hosted MTV’s “Singled Out” in the 1990s, will join the NBC show, the story reports. The announcement comes as McCarthy is also preparing a talk show for VH1, which is scheduled to debut later this year.
"Love in the Wild" will begin taping in the Dominican Republic later this month, and will feature McCarthy putting contestants through challenges as they try to find love, the story says. The show’s first season drew an average of 5.5 million total viewers, the story says.
