Real Chance of Love is an American reality television dating game show featuring two brothers, Ahmad "Real" Givens (died February 21, 2015, aged 33)[1] and Kamal "Chance" Givens, of the rap group The Stallionares, former contestants on I Love New York, who are looking for love.

The show was first brought up in August 2007 when Mr. Boston and Tango of I Love New York were offered to star in their own reality show. Mr. Boston declined and the plans eventually fell through, leaving the show to be picked up by Real and Chance.[2]

Season one[edit]

The first season premiered October 20, 2008, and featured seventeen female contestants taking part in various challenges in a format similar to other VH1 and MTV dating contest programs. Each week, women were eliminated until the final episode where the brothers had to make their final selections. Ultimately, Ahmad (Real) selected Corn Fed, while Kamal (Chance) selected nobody.[3] The series consisted of 14 episodes. A few days after the reunion show was taped, Corn Fed and Real ended their relationship.

Season two[edit]

It was reported on the VH1 blog that there will be a "second season" of Real Chance of Love, with the working title Real Chance of Love 2.[4] Twenty women will move into the Stallionaire Ranch and compete for the brother of their choice. In March 2009, Real Chance of Love 2 auditions were held in selected cities.[5][6] Real and Chance appeared on Chelsea Lately on May 25, 2009, to talk about the second season of Real Chance of Love. The show premiered on August 3, 2009. Ultimately, Ahmad (Real) selected Doll, while Kamal (Chance) selected Hot Wings.
