Flavor Flav and Hoopz

Though the reality show–rap connection hit its heights with Kim and Kanye, you gotta give credit where it's due. Flav first took the trend to the screen on his Flavor of Love dating reality show back in 2006. He chose Nicole Deannae Alexander, who he dubbed Hoopz, as his boo at the end of the show, but they broke up shortly afterward (some say they were never really dating at all).
