Reality TV star Tiffany "New York" Pollard, who previously hosted OutTV's "Hot Haus," has signed on to a new queer reality competition show, "Looking for a Third," from the channel and streaming service.
The idea behind "Looking for a Third" is that a gay couple and a lesbian couple will choose from among a number of prospects to add a new partner to their relationship, Deadline reports.
"Pollard, a seminal figure in Black reality TV, will host and is an executive producer," Deadline relayed. "She was first seen in 'Flavor of Love' back in 2006 on VH1 before landing her own spin-off, 'I Love New York.'
"She also made a popular appearance on 'Big Brother' in the UK, where she was at the center of an iconic moment in which she mistakenly told fellow housemates David Gest had died."
Saying she was "thrilled to be returning to the dating genre as both a host and executive producer," Pollard reckoned that "Partnering with OUTtv is always such a joy because it's my honor to get to tell incredible queer stories.
"I know this show is going to be silly, romantic, and filled with so much love," she added.
OutTV COO Philip Webb also weighed in, noting that "It is not uncommon for couples to consider adding a third person to their relationship and 'Looking for a Third' will provide a revealing look at what happens when couples decide to take that step.
"OUTtv aims to show all facets of the queer experience by commissioning shows in the dating genre which are both authentic and fun," Webb added, before saying: "Looking for a Third promises to deliver on all fronts."
"Looking for a Third" will be set "in a modern villa" and run for eight episodes. The series is expected to hit the screen late next year. The show comes "from Daddy TV, the producing team behind Stormy Daniels series 'For The Love of DILFs'," Deadline noted.
