We’re back with another hot contender from I love New York. This time around, De Novo Magazine’s Andrew Moreno sat down for a brutally honest interview with Chase a.k. a Token. Perhaps, as Token states himself, he is known for his infamous peck-on-the- cheek kiss with Mr. New York. Learn about life after the show, his thoughts on Tango’s last goodbye, and Sister Patterson.
We have got to applaud Token for this interview: He is honest and straight to the point.
I caught the young entrepreneur before heading off to work, so we got straight into the interview.
Moreno: Tell me about living in the house with New York and the other contestants? What was your take?
Token: There was definitely a feeling of mixed- emotions. I would find myself asking, "Why am I here?" I was never the person on the show who would fight for attention. But, yeah it was a mix of positives and negatives.
Moreno: How did you end up on the show? Or, why did you audition?
Token: I was actually asked by a friend to audition, and I decided to do it.
Moreno: So, were you familiar with the show?
Token: Oh yeah, I knew who New York was and I had watched Flavor of Love before.
Moreno: If you were asked by a friend to audition, did you have love for New York?
Token: I'll put it this way, I did not have true emotions for her. I was just not into her.
Moreno: Is that part of the reason for the infamous kiss you gave her?
Token: Definitely. Before wanting to kiss me, she had made-out with six guys prior to that. That's something I'm into.
Moreno: What did you make of Sister Patterson?
Token: She is Crazy! It was like she was fighting for attention with New York. I think she wanted to be more on TV than anyone else. Plus, she would be rude and disrespectful to the guys on national television. She's just crazy.
Moreno: I can see that. So, there was no love for New York and no love for Sister Patterson, did you get along with the other guys?
Token: Yeah, I got along fine with the other guys. That is, except for Mr. Boston. We didn't get along.
Moreno: So are you interested in other parts of the entertainment industry?
Token: Yeah, I wouldn't mind acting or doing some of the technical aspect behind the scenes.
Moreno: What was life like before the show?
Token: I was in school majoring in Criminal Justice. I was also working as a bartender.
Moreno: What are you doing now?
Token: Right now I'm just working.
Moreno: Hey, what did you make of Tango's last goodbye to New York?
Tango: I actually talked to Tango before the reunion show. From what I understand, it was a last minute decision to call of the relationship. But I actually thought it was funny as hell.
Moreno: Any expectations for season II of I love New York?
Token: Look out for a guy named, Ears.
Moreno: Finally, how would you sum up the entire show?
Token: Overall, it was a once in a lifetime event. I had a good time and ended up meeting a lot of friends.
