(New York, NY) – In January, Stacy London returned to TLC with the series launch of LOVE, LUST OR RUN, and viewers welcomed her and her unmatched style guidance back with open arms. TLC has renewed the transformative freshman series, produced by True Entertainment, with 26 additional episodes slated to premiere in June 2015. Season 1 is currently averaging 1.4M P2+ viewers.
In every episode of LOVE, LUST OR RUN, Stacy coaches each woman on her questionable fashion decisions and, under Stacy’s tutelage, she discovers what impact her wardrobe choices are having on her life.
First, each woman’s outrageous look is shown to strangers on the street who rate her style as either “love,” “lust” or “run.” Next, the woman in question strips off her hair extensions, wild clothes and garish makeup in order to start over as a “blank slate.” Stacy then guides each woman through a transformative make-under, which will dramatically change her look and allow her to channel what she really wants from the outside world. Episodes culminate when Stacy again takes to the streets to ask strangers to rate the woman’s transformed style.
In this week’s finale, airing Friday, March 20 at 9/8c, Kitty’s tattoos and tight clothes don’t exactly scream long-term relationship, so she’s come to Stacy to find classier alternatives. Meanwhile, Jay uses flashy makeup to cover up the insecurities she has about her appearance.
