Toccara Jones is heading back to the medium that rocketed her to success. Toccara, the vivacious and voluptuous fashion model and television personality, takes on the challenge of a lifetime when she puts her heart and soul into the search for her perfect mate as the bachelorette in the return of TV One’s popular reality series, The Ultimate Merger, premiering Thursday, August 4 at 9 PM ET in a special two-hour episode. With a personality that’s an enticing mix of sparkling and warm, down to earth yet determined, the very busy Toccara has yet to meet her match. . until now.
Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth starred on the show in 2010. This season, the gentlemen vying for the gorgeous Toccara’s affections include an array of alpha males who are as competitive as they come. Two former NFL players face off. A couple of studly models bring lean beefcake to the mix. A strengthening coach with a penchant for cocktail sipping, a stoic and fierce MMA fighter, and a handsome R&B singer from the Motor City are among a few of the amazing men Toccara will have to choose from. When these guys come together and battle for Toccara’s love it’s not just competitive… it’s explosive!
“Being on The Ultimate Merger has been the most amazing experience, both professionally and personally,” said Toccara. “I spend so much time on the road and focused on my career, it’s not been easy to meet the man of my dreams and develop a real relationship. It’s been incredibly hard work, but to have this time to focus on nothing else – and do it as part of my career – has been a fantastic opportunity. I am very excited for the TV One audience to be able to watch how the series unfolds and see who from among this incredible group of men I end up falling in love with.”
Toccara is no stranger to reality TV starring in the third cycle of UPN’s “America’s Next Top Model.” She followed it up with a stint on VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club 2” in 2005 and on “Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp,” in 2008 and played host several times on BET.
