NEW YORK, N.Y. (July 12, 2012) — MTV2, MTV’s sibling network targeting young male viewers, today announced new cast members for the second season of “MTV2’s Guy Code,” premiering on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2. Coming in at 6’4”, 415 pounds, Christopher “Big Black” Boykins of MTV’s “Rob & Big” and “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory” joins the panel for the first time, along with comedian Chris Distefano, model and “Bizarre Magazine” cover girl Levy Tran, and “America’s Next Top Model” contestant and model Lisa Ramos.
The new season of “Guy Code” will pick up right where it left off, giving viewers the ins and outs of the special code that exists between bros as told through talking-head style commentators, absurd humor, and funny and inappropriate animation. Featuring today’s pop culture entertainers, top comics, rappers and specialized experts, the series will alter the manscape forever with the rules for life’s most important situations from bachelor parties and stress, to dealing with cops, pregnancy scares, piercings, lying, farting and much more.
But wait - there’s more! This season is all about the field test, as the Guy Code cast members head out to test the limits of the code during real life experiences, including everything from the joys of a spa visit, to shooting rifles at a gun range and even trying yoga for the first time. In addition, each episode will feature a new segment called #DontJudgeMe where panelists reveal embarrassing personal moments and guilty pleasures that many would never admit to; along with the return of the popular “Pro Tips” and “Good Ass Night” segments.
Other talent appearing in the series include: Alesha Reneé (“E! News Now,” “BET Now”), Andrew Schulz (comedian, MTV's “New Year's Eve Bash,” Music Choice's “Certified”), April Rose (model, Maxim “Hometown Hottie”), Charlamagne Tha God (radio personality, entertainer, producer), Damien Lemon (“Russell Simmons Presents the Ruckus”), Dean Edwards (comedian, “Saturday Night Live”), Donnell Rawlings (comedian, “Chappelle’s Show”), Jon Gabrus (comedian, MTV’s “The Substitute,” “Gabrus on Rugby”), Jordan Carlos (comedian, “I Just Want My Pants Back”), Lil Duval (comedian, “Hood State of the Union”) and Melanie Iglesias (model, Maxim “Hometown Hottie”).
The second season of “Guy Code” continues MTV2’s investment in an original programming destination on Tuesday nights at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT that launched with the first season of “Guy Code” and has continued with the original series “Nitro Circus Live” and “Hip Hop Squares.” Since then, the network has seen double digit time period increases with its core demos including +18% among P12-34 (.26) and +35% among M12-34 (.35).
