If you thought Donald Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger was a one-time experiment for the real estate mogul, think again. Having achieved moderate success in its first season with Apprentice veteran Omarosa at its helm, the reality-based dating competition returns for a second stint – this time with a model.
Most remembered for her exuberant presence on Cycle 3 of America’s Next Top Model, Toccara Jones is no stranger to the reality show circuit. Since competing on Top Model in 2004, the 29-year-old Ohio native has made a variety of television appearances, most notably on season two of VH1′s hit Celebrity Fit Club.
Her reach extends beyond the reality realm, however. To date, Toccara has worked as a correspondent for BET, snagged parts on several sitcoms including UPN’s Girlfriends, and graced the covers of a multitude of magazines. Naturally, the plus-sized model also made numerous guest appearances on The Tyra Banks Show during its five year run.
Given the increase in popularity Toccara has experienced in the years following her elimination from Top Model, it’s no wonder she was recently voted one of the most memorable contestants by AOL Entertainment. The public loves Toccara – and if there’s one thing Donald Trump loves, it’s a good investment.
But will Toccara truly find love through her latest professional project? Season one’s anticlimactic finale aside, we’d venture to guess not a chance! While we certainly root for Toccara’s continued success, the real merger lies in establishing a business relationship with Mr. Trump. That’s pretty ultimate indeed.
The Ultimate Merger is set to air on TV One this summer.Tags: america's next top model, ANTM, celebrity fit club, Donald Trump, girlfriends, italian vogue, omarosa, reality TV, television, The Apprentice, the ultimate merger, toccara, toccara jones, tv one, tyra banks, upn, VH1
