Any nutty thought that flashes through his mind winds up being spoken or acted on. ” Flav asked during a champagne toast for the second season of his show.Turned out Sumthin, a contestant, had used Flav’s Italian marble floor as a toilet. When he found out what happened, he decided that she had merely proved the wisdom of his pet name for her. “So I really think I gave her the right name, folks.” Flav gives all the women new names – Payshyntz, New York, Hottie, Spunkee – because he’s so addled that he couldn’t possibly remember their real ones.

At least not the kind to inspire dozens of women to fight (literally) over him on VH1’s “Flavor of Love,” a ghetto-grotesque version of “The Bachelor,” which recently made its mark as the mostwatched show in the network’s history. Underneath it all is an earnest sweetness, a strange combination street hustler and genteel charmer. “I truly believe the character you see on television is the genuine personality of Flavor Flav,” says Bumpz, who asked to remain anonymous so she wouldn’t jeopardize her career.

Instead of competing for an engagement ring, the girls vie for a chance to “kick it” with the pint-sized Public Enemy. ” Hardly the makings of any woman’s Prince Charming fantasy. There’s no doubt that he’s crass, but he’s also optimistic – and a selfproclaimed hopeless romantic. Not too skinny, not too fat.” FOR Flav, that’s the equivalent of a Shakespeare sonnet.

“This show is really bad for African Americans,” says Jared Kessler, a 29-yearold Wall Street trader.

“It depicts them as low class, ignorant and most of them can’t even speak in complete sentences.” But like many of Flav’s critics, he’s also watched every episode.

Along with Chuck D, the showman of the group and its promotional voice, Flav stood out among the members of Public Enemy as he often got the fans excited, appearing on stage and in public wearing big hats and glasses, and a large clock dangling from his neck.
