A new year means new demands, and that’s especially true on VH1, as Season 2 of What Chilli Wants will ring in 2011 when it hits the air Sunday, January 2 at 9:30/8:30c. Details on the R&B icon’s renewed quest for love on reality TV are in the press release below…
Multi-Grammy Award winner Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas is famous, beautiful and talented…but for some reason the international superstar member of TLC still can’t seem to find a man. But she’s not done trying! After a smash first season, Chilli and her no-nonsense matchmaker Tionna Smalls are back at it again and taking another stab at finding Chilli true love on a brand new season of VH1’s What Chilli Wants premiering Sunday, January 2nd at 9:30 PM*.
Like last season, Chilli is still struggling to find the man of her dreams, while her matchmaker Tionna is tasked with helping her toughest client yet. Yet this time around, the stakes are even higher. Just shy of 40, Chilli is consumed by a desire to have another child and time is definitely working against her. This time around, Chilli’s not only looking for the perfect man, she’s also looking for a potential husband and father.
In the second season of What Chilli Wants, Tionna takes to the road on a nationwide search to focus on “high value” targets that will not only turn Chilli’s head, but open her heart as well. As a result, various encounters and hot chemistry ensues as Chilli’s dates take her up and down the eastern seaboard; from Miami, where she puts things in high gear with a dynamic Indy race-car driver; to New York, where a head-turning Swedish model shows her he’s much more than just a pretty face.
However, looming in the background is an old flame with whom Chilli has for years been on the cusp of a real, romantic relationship – but continually let down by his lack of commitment. Now, much to Tionna’s dismay, all seems to be forgiven when he shows up in Atlanta to spend some quality time with Chilli. That said, is this old flame for real and ready to step up to a real relationship? And in the end, will Chilli finally open her heart and let someone in?
