2006: Breakout with Flavor of Love
Flavor of Love
Pollard (then age 23) clashed with virtually all the other contestants. Although these feuds were, in general, nothing more than screaming matches, an incident in the penultimate episode of season one led to violence. After her elimination, an outraged Brooke “Pumkin” Thompson spat on Pollard after the two had exchanged words.
Of all the women on the show, Pollard had the most tension with Thompson all throughout the show. Pollard vowed to “whoop Pumkin’s ass”, and attempted to do so at the season one reunion. The moment was rated number one on various VH1 and MTV reality show specials, including VH1’s 20 Greatest Celebreality Fights. The final two contestants journeyed to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where Flavor Flav chose Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander over Pollard, to be his mate.
Flavor of Love 2
After his relationship did not work out with Alexander, Flavor Flav chose to do a second season of his dating show and invited Pollard (then age 24) to help him eliminate contestants halfway through the season. She agreed and was later added as a participant. In the finale, Flav chose Deelishis over Pollard. Pollard verbally fought with Flav in the season finale, asking why he had brought her back only to be ultimately eliminated.
I Love New York
I Love New York was Pollard’s first reality television series on VH1. The series is a spin-off of another relationship competition series, the Flavor of Love, which featured Pollard as a finalist in two consecutive seasons. In July 2006, VH1 published a casting call for contestants for a new series tentatively titled The Flavorette.
Various blogs speculated that the star of this program could be Flavor of Love season 1 contestant Rain, Hoopz (Nicole Alexander), or Pollard. Before the season 2 Flavor of Love finale, Pollard denied having her own show but after the finale aired, she confirmed she was the “Flavorette” and that she was already down to the final three contestants.
The show premiered on Monday, January 8, 2007, and was the most-watched series debut in VH1 history with 4.426 million viewers. Its season 1 finale brought in 4.8M million viewers and its reunion show ratings held 5.01 million viewers.

However, if she quit, failed, or was fired, she would not receive a bonus for the week.
