Toccara Lets Loose on "The Ultimate Merger"

America’s Next Top Model alum Toccara Jones is the next lady to lay her heart on the line on Donald Trump’s highly successful TV One reality dating show, The Ultimate Merger.

The buxom babe takes the place of Omarosa, the first season’s femme fatale, who shocked viewers when she ended up dumping both of her final picks, Al B. Sure and singer Ray Lavender. Though many viewers consider these shows to be sheer entertainment, Toccara claims she’s really looking for love on season two. “I want a relationship, a partner. Since I’m in this business, I’m always traveling and I’m always on the go. It’s really hard meeting people within it and just dating in general.”

Trump’s process makes reality dating a little easier, as he and his team compile background reports on the male contestants which include: job history, credit score, criminal records, marital status and children.

Toccara hasn’t met any of these highly qualified gents, but that hasn’t stopped her from dreaming. “In my head, I just think they’re all 6’3 and delicious!”

Omarosa’s season definitely had its fair share of sexy contenders, but it also featured several highly televised emotional meltdowns. Is Toccara ready for that? “I think that’s great,” she says without a lick of fear. “That’s the best part about being me. I get to be me. I’m not an artist or an actress. I’m Toccara and I get to show my emotions. If I get mad, I get mad. If I cry, I cry. I’m human. If I fall in love and get my heart broken, I’m open to it all. I have no filters on me. I’m doing it for real.”

Can’t wait to see that. Filming starts next month and they’re still securing a location.
