Reality star Toccara is looking for love

Toccara Jones is no stranger to reality television, and she's now hoping the medium can help her find romance.

"I'm looking for love and obviously I haven't been doing the right things," the model and former contestant on "America's Next Model" told CNN. "If Donald Trump and TV One can help me out, then baby I am down for it."

Jones, who has also appeared on "Celebrity Fit Club," is coming back to the small screen as the star of season two of "The Ultimate Merger." The dating reality show, which is produced by Donald Trump, was popular on cable network TV One and starred former "Apprentice" contestant, Omarosa.

This time around, a group of bachelors will be competing for the heart of Jones, who is currently doing the Hennessy Remixed tour, where she promotes the alcoholic beverage as part of her duties as "Lady Hennessy." Jones said the drink was a favorite of her father.

Fans watched Jones slim down a few seasons ago on "Celebrity Fit Club," and she has since lost even more weight.  Jones is no longer even close to the size she was when she competed as a plus-sized contestant on season three of Tyra Banks' hit show "America's Next Top Model."

But Jones, who has enjoyed a career as a model (in 2008, she was photographed by Steven Meisel for an issue of Italian Vogue featuring only African American models) and TV hostess with BET, said she still considers herself a curvy girl.

"I like to call myself juicy," she said. "Yes, I've lost a little bit of weight, but I am still in the double digits and I have a workout DVD."

And how has she managed to stay in front of the camera when so many other reality stars have faded away?

"I've been blessed, because I've always been able to be myself," she said. "What you see is Toccara."

    This is not a good Pic of Toccara. There are tons, when she is not wearing makeup where she looks like a pretty person. But this pic.. her makeup was all wrong.

    I loved her as a plus size model... now she is just a bit too slim, she's still top heavy, but she losing what made her... her. Hopefully she stops where she is, cause there are some people who are not meant to be thin... and she is starting to look like one of them.
