The first season of "Flavor of Love" started airing on New Year's Night, 2006, and aired for ten episodes.



Episode 1: "Fifteen Beds and a Bucket of Puke"(aired January 1, 2006)

:The twenty contestants arrive at the mansion to discover that there are only fifteen beds. When naming the girls, the first person to receive her name is "Oyster," a name she dislikes. Flav gives all of the girls nicknames, but cannot think of one for a particular girl, who tells him she likes scuba diving, so he names her 'Shellz.' Oyster then reveals that she has worn red clothing every day for six years straight, and decides to name herself "Red Oyster." Hottie is very aggressive with Flav, which he likes. New York makes a comment about all of the girls being "a pack of idiot bitches," which started the spark for being the villain. Goldie drinks too much champagne, vomits, and passes out. Hottie is the first to receive a clock, and Rain manages to get Goldie standing in time for the elimination ceremony, and she is the last person to receive her clock. On her way out Cherry cries and wonders how "Goldie, who puked in bucket, a gallon of puke" stays. Smokey, Shellz, Picasso, and Bubblez are also eliminated.

Episode 2: "Rub a Dub Flav" (aired January 7, 2006)

:The fifteen remaining contestants engage in a competition where Flav has 10 minutes to spend with each woman in a private hot tub. In the van on the way to the resort, Rain and New York get into a heated argument over New York's unfriendliness toward the other contestants. At the resort, contestants prepare themselves and their hot tub with candles and drinks to keep Flav entertained. Some of the hot tub settings are nice, but some are strange, such as Hottie's. Flav states "Hottie is very 'dramatical.' She tried to 'hypnotize' me!" In the end, Flav picks Smiley, New York, and Miss Latin for a private roller skating date, where Smiley reveals she was previously married. (It was revealed in the reunion show that she was only divorced one week before the taping of the show.) Later at the house, Pumkin and New York get into a fight and Pumkin runs to Flav for consolation. Red Oyster passes along information to Flav that Miss Latin has been calling her ex-boyfriend, Cash, from the house, saying not to hang up. He hangs up on her. Miss Latin, Rain, Georgia, Apples, and Dimplez are eliminated. It should be noted that Apples and Dimplez names are never revealed on-screen.

Episode 3: "A Friend of Flav's is a Friend of Mine" (aired January 15, 2006)

:Flav takes the women to visit some of his "old friends" as well as some "new friends." The four contestants who are taken to meet Flav's "old friends" suspect that they will be meeting his celebrity friends (most notably the other members of Public Enemy) but are surprised when they arrive at a senior center where their challenge is to care for and socialize with the elderly. Some girls have fun with the challenge, while some, such as New York, are uncomfortable. Sweetie wins and surprises Flav with her refusal to kiss him, saying it would take about three more weeks.

:The six contestants that go to meet Flav's "new friends" are taken to a park where they are challenged to organize and execute a birthday party for young children. Though Pumkin thought she would win, everyone was surprised when Serious did. New York walks out of the senior citizen center when a woman asks her for help with her false teeth, and Pumkin, a substitute teacher, cries after Flav says she was the most distant when playing with the children.

:New York accuses Hottie of stealing her jacket because she had made statements that she was so competitive that she might cut up someone's clothes to win. Hottie rebuffs New York, saying New York is just jealous, because Hottie believes she looks like Beyoncé. New York tells her she looks more like Luther Vandross. New York's exact words from the unrated DVD to Beyoncé was " Beyonce, I'm sorry that an ugly ass bitch like this would even say that." Serious showed her breasts to Hottie and says that if Hottie's "double D's" don't look like hers, then they do not matter.

:Neither New York nor Hottie is happy when Flav gives them both clocks. Serious does not receive a clock because Red Oyster informs Flav that she believes that she is only here to further her career in modeling. Peaches is also elimated as well.

Episode 4: "The Flavor of Chicken" (aired January 22, 2006)

:The contestants try to impress Flav's mother (Anna Drayton) by accompanying her to church, introducing themselves over tea and pastries at a tea room and by attempting to cook fried chicken. Hottie ends up attempting to cook her chicken in the microwave, stuffed with raw vegetables, leaving it raw during the presentation to Flav and his mother. Hottie thought the button that said 'chicken' meant that it would cook an entire chicken. Goldie, says "Bitch is crazy!" Hoopz wins the cooking competition. Sweetie is disappointed because she hates chicken after an incident when she was five, and is angry that she cooked a chicken for nothing. Hoopz then has dinner with Flav and his mother, who warms up to Hoopz after being indifferent to her in the beginning. Sweetie is eliminated, as Flav doubts whether she really likes him. Sweetie throws a tantrum because she feels that she has shown him several times that she likes him (cooking a chicken, staying up late for a date, etc.) She felt that he left a lot of "jokes" in his house referring to New York, Red Oyster and Hottie. She tells Flav off as she exits the house and calls Flav retarded in a New Jersey accent, and the other girls are shocked.

Episode 5: "What Happens in Flavor Stays in Flavor" (aired January 29, 2006)

:Flav takes the seven remaining girls to Las Vegas to test their luck, literally, at a roulette table. Each girl is given $100 in chips and 10 minutes at the wheel. Several of the girls blow their entire stake in one roll. New York won the most money for Flav by winning $465 , and earned herself a one-on-one date with him that night. New York confesses her love for Flav, and Flav is troubled when New York admits that she would be upset if he were to kiss other women. Flav is turned off by New York's jealous ways.

:While New York and Flav were on the date, Hoopz, Goldie, Hottie, Red Oyster, Pumkin, and Smiley went to a strip club. Hoopz is convinced Red Oyster is going to tattle on them for going there. When they return from Vegas, Flav organizes a "Five Senses" challenge. Throughout the entire competition, Smiley and New York were the runaway leaders in terms of points accumulated. For the final part of the challenge, Smiley does a very erotic dance (which is not censored on the DVD). New York attempts an erotic dance and nearly falls through the privacy screen (so Flav could not tell who was who). Due to New York's gaffe, Smiley wins, and she spends time with Flav in his hot tub.

:During the elimination ceremony at the end of the episode, Red Oyster announces that she is eliminating herself from the competition to be with her father, who she has just found out was in a serious car accident. Flav tells Red Oyster he is sorry to see her go because he would have saved her from elimination. New York and Hottie had not received clocks at that time, and were saved from elimination, even though one of them was scheduled to leave that night. New York was troubled because she desperately wanted to know if she would have received a clock or not.

Episode 6: "InterroGitted" (aired February 12, 2006)

:Flav's old flame, Brigitte Nielsen, visits the house to administer lie detector tests to the six remaining contestants. While having his hair braided, Flav sees Hottie on an episode of "Blind Date", where she states that she is looking to date a man who will spend money on her. He calls Hoopz, Smiley, Pumkin and Goldie, who happened to be nearby, into his bedroom, and they are shocked at what they see. Later, Pumkin reveals to the girls that she has also been on "Blind Date", but doesn't tell Flav. The lie detector test shows that Hottie lied about her age and her body measurements. Goldie was the only one who was completely truthful on her test, though Smiley was honest in admitting she still loved her ex-husband and was previously a stripper. Hoopz spends the majority of the night arguing with Brigitte Nielsen, and abruptly leaves a dinner Brigitte threw in their honor, but Hoopz manages to escape elimination. Smiley reveals her past as an exotic dancer, then argues with New York after admitting that she still has feelings for her ex-husband. New York passes this information on to Flav, but refuses to mention Smiley directly. Pumkin readily volunteers Smiley's name. When Flav meets with Brigitte, she tells Flav that "none" of the girls are right for him. Flav eliminates Hottie for not being truthful. Flav had a clock for Smiley but chose not to give it to her for having issues with her ex-husband.

Episode 7: "Flav's Trippin' " (aired February 19, 2006)

:The four remaining ladies go on an overnight trip with Flav. First, Pumkin and Hoopz go with Flav to a spa in Palm Springs, California where they do yoga, mud body painting, and then all enjoy a clean-up shower together. During dinner, Pumkin uses Hoopz's restroom break as her opportunity to give Flav a personal letter, which indicated that she wanted to be intimate with him that night. After reading it, he later informs Hoopz that he and Pumkin are heading back to his room to spend the night together. For the second trip, Flav takes Goldie and New York to San Diego, where they visit the San Diego Zoo and Flav chooses to spend the night with Goldie, though she just wants to be his friend. Flav and Goldie leave on very good terms, and Goldie gives heartfelt goodbye hugs to Pumkin and Hoopz.

Episode 8: "Family Flavors" (aired February 26, 2006)

:Flav goes on outings with the three remaining girls parents. He takes Pumkin and her mother Teri to get a manicure and a pedicure, takes Hoopz and her mother Dana to Medieval Times, and takes New York and her parents Alex and Michelle to the Santa Malibu Tennis Resort. During Pumkin's outing, her mother reveals to Flav that Pumkin had also appeared on "Blind Date", a fact that was known to the other girls, but not to Flav. Her mother also told Flav she had been on a number of other game shows, such as Family Feud. Hoopz expresses her feeling that if she doesn't hook up with Flav at the end of the day, her mother might, since they took to themselves quite a bit. On the way to the tennis resort, New York's mother proclaims that her daughter has gotten fat, which embarrasses New York. Flav does not hit it off with New York's mother, who loudly expresses her objections to any possibility of her daughter marrying Flav.

:Pumkin's failure to tell Flav about her past appearance on "Blind Date" leads to her elimination at the end of the episode. During the elimination ceremony, a near-brawl ensues between her and New York when Pumkin claims New York is an aspiring actress. New York claimed that Pumkin "was callin me out". Pumkin then spits in New York's face, then runs. New York then curses Pumkin out and pushed Pumkin in the cameras. New York pulls off one of her high heels and attempts to go "beat the bitch's ass."

:Outside the mansion, Pumkin states that she no longer cares for Flav and if he should pick New York in the end, he would get what he deserves. She also threatens to come back to the show with a gun to shoot New York. She later denies that on her myspace page, stating that her "VH1" contract entitled them to cut off the rest of her words when they like. In an interview,Burger, David. [http://www.bakersfield.com/102/story/38985.html 'Pumkin' off reality TV, but her spit added spice] . The Bakersfield Californian, March 6, 2006. Retrieved December 29, 2006.] Pumkin denied spitting in New York's face. She claims to have been told by producers that she would be leaving before this was filmed and to give them a "big ending." She asked what kind of an ending they wanted and they suggested spitting. She also claims that the spit was digitally enhanced. Regardless, the incident is considered the most shocking and popular moment of the entire series.

:Back in the mansion, Flav gives New York her clock. But before doing so, He asked her if she really wants the clock. She says she does, but she wants to "go whup that motherfuckin' bitch's ass". When the clock ceremony is over, he directs to the two finalists to pack their bags because they're going to Mexico. This excites them, especially for New York. She says that she will forget about the situation between her and Pumkin for now, but "it is not over." She also states that Pumkin's breath smelled like a "straight-up toilet full of nasty-ass shit" while New York and Hoopz were getting ready for their flight to Mexico, New York runs back down the stairs to go kick Pumkin's ass. The producers told her if she did "whup Pumkin's ass," she will not be going to Mexico (this scene was revealed at the recap episode).:This episode is also notable for the fact that the mothers of Hoopz and New York reveal their daughters' real names ("Nikki" and "Tiffany," respectively) on air.

Episode 9: "For Flav's Consideration" (aired March 5, 2006)

Episode 10: "Flavor of Decision" aka "Viva La Flav" (aired March 12, 2006)

:The final two contestants, Hoopz and New York, take a trip to Mexico with Flav. They each get a 24-hour period to spend alone with Flav, and the first to go is New York. Flav decides to test her (because of her dislike for the outdoors) by taking her to a secluded beach for some kayaking. Later, during dinner, Flav gives New York a necklace with her show name on it. They then head back to the hotel, where the determined New York decides to share his bed that night. She later tells Hoopz that they didn't have sex but were "making music" and "making love" all night. Hoopz has her date with Flav the next day, and they ride zip lines through the jungle. During their dinner, Hoopz also receives a necklace and they proceed to spend the evening cuddling.

:After returning from Mexico, the women are treated (separately) to a day of dress shopping and getting their hair done for the impending final elimination ceremony. New York loves her dress and her hairdo, while Hoopz feels her hairstyle and choice of dress makes her look ugly. At the elimination, both women arrive wearing the same dress, and make comments about how bad it looks on the other. After being certain that neither woman will be angry with him for choosing the other, Flav apologizes to New York and tells her that his choice is Hoopz. New York spends the limo ride questioning if it really just happened that way, and questioning why Flav would do that to her. Back in the house, Flav presents Hoopz with a set of gold teeth that match his own.

Episode 11: "After the Lovin"' (aired April 2, 2006)

:All of the contestants are invited back to talk and take a look at highlights of the season, including the vomiting, the infamous spitting, and general cat-fighting.

Flav gives a hug to Smokey.The host, La La, believing that Red Oyster (who is now known to be Flav's lookout) has her own secrets that need to be revealed. She then announced to everyone that Red Oyster was married while on the show. Oyster claims to be divorced, both now and then. Flav believes her, but the other former contestants do not. Rain and Red Oyster then get into an argument where Rain calls Red Oyster a "snitch". Serious, a model before the show, maintains that she was genuinely interested in Flav and was not on the show to boost her career. Next, the most anticipated part of the show, Pumkin and New York's first reunion since Pumkin's elimination. New York is brought out first and begins to argue with Cherry. This argument started when Cherry questioned Flav about why he kept New York if he wanted harmony in his house. New York asks her why she should even matter because she was one of the first to be eliminated. They yell at each other, which leads to Cherry getting escorted out. Pumkin then comes out and New York attempts to "bitch slap" her. They later attempt to solve their problems with words. Pumkin tells her what's on her mind with the time she received. New York spends her time by knocking over one of the boards that separated the two and attempting to attack Pumkin once again. When Big Rick caught her, her breasts were exposed. Later, Hoopz is brought out to discuss her relationship with Flav. He says he needs her to explain because he doesn't understand what happened. Hoopz reveals that her connection with Flav was not "like that" sort of connection. New York says she knew that all along. She says this while Big Rick is holding her to keep her from going after Pumkin again. Flav announces that there will be a Second Season of the series, to once again attempt to find "the next great love of his life."
