Filming for the second season of the E! reality series Famously Single is underway and the network has finally confirmed the names of the eight celebrities who are currently trying to solve their relationship problems while living together in an L.A. loft.
Eight celebrities, including six reality TV stars, will be living together for the next few weeks as the production crew films eight episodes for the second season that is set to air on E! in 2017. Although the network has yet to release the premiere date, the first season kicked off in June 2016, so fans could see a summer premiere for Famously Single Season 2.
Who are the eight love-challenged celebrities who will attempt to learn more about their failed relationships on the upcoming season of Famously Single? Find a full cast list below, along with a brief bio about each celebrity.
Chad Johnson was dubbed the villain on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette and, instead of redeeming himself on the summer spinoff Bachelor in Paradise, host Chris Harrison booted him off the show after he was aggressive, rude, and very drunk.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro appeared on Jersey Shore from 2009-2012 – he is following in the footsteps of his former co-star, DJ Pauly D who appeared on Season 1 of Famously Single.
David McIntosh is an actor and fitness model who is looking for love. According to E!, McIntosh prefers to wear the “least amount of clothes possible” as often as possible.
Karina Smirnoff is a professional ballroom dancer who has appeared on 17 seasons of Dancing with the Stars and won Season 13 Mirrorball Trophy with her celebrity partner J. R. Martinez. She dated Mario Lopez from 2006-2008 and has been engaged three times (Brad Penny, Jason Adelman, Maksim Chmerkovskiy).
Tiffany Pollard has been on five reality TV shows looking for love including Flavor of Love, I Love New York, New York Goes to Hollywood, New York Goes To Work, and Celebrity Big Brother. Maybe the sixth time will be a charm?
Dorothy Wang is one of the stars of The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. She has been working to build a company that sells affordable luxury brands. Hopefully, Dorothy will learn how to balance being an entrepreneur and a relationship during her time on Famously Single.

Will this season’s celebs find love while living in the L.A. loft, or perhaps with someone off camera when filming is done? Fans will have to wait until Season 2 airs in 2017 to find out if the cast members’ romantic lives improve, but judging from last season’s outcome, there’s a chance that at least one of the celebrities cast for Famously Single Season 2 will find their soul mate.
On Season 1, three of the eight of the cast members entered into a relationship either on the show or shortly after the series ended.
Former Jersey Shore star Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio and singer-songwriter/television personality Aubrey O’Day fell in love while filming the show. Their love story seemed to be going in a good direction for months after the show aired.
Almost a year after they met on the show, their relationship now seems to be on-again-off-again, with E! reporting that the couple broke up over Pauly D‘s alleged cheating. However, judging from their most recent Instagram photos, it appears that the couple is back together, with Aubrey going so far as to call Pauly her husband in one of the pics.
Josh Murray, a contestant from Season 1, didn’t find love while filming Famously Single, but it appears that some of the relationship advice he received paid off.
After filming the E! reality show in L.A., he joined the cast of ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise where he made an instant connection with single mom Amanda Stanton. The couple is currently engaged and living in L.A. with Amanda’s two children.
