Jenny McCarthy is having a good week. On the heels of her talk-show announcement, the former Singled Out star has landed the hosting gig for NBC's reality series Love in the Wild.
"It's a huge advantage to have the versatile Jenny McCarthy return to host an alternative series on our network in a genre that she first helped to make popular on television," NBC executive Paul Telegdy told The Hollywood Reporter. "She brings a measure of unpredictability to the show's unique format and we are thrilled to feature her charisma, enthusiasm and magnetism in this adventure series."

The dating show, filmed in the Dominican Republic, puts contestants through rigorous tasks and challenges while trying to find love. Season 2 will begin shooting later this month.
"Everyone knows I've looked just about everywhere except the jungle for love," McCarthy joked. "I wanted to apply as a contestant and ended up with a job."
