Who is Kamal Givens?

Kamal Givens, also known as Chance, is best known for his role on VH1's I Love New York, and is one of 20 contenders for the affections of Tiffany Pollard. On I Love New York, Chance appears with his brother Real, with whom he was raised on a horse ranch. Chance is also a former Capitol Records artist.

Born in South Central/Beverly Hills, California, Chance and Real were discovered by VH1 producers through their Myspace pages. He appeared as one of 20 contestants in I Love New York. This Bachelor-style dating show features Tiffany Pollard, better known as New York, in her quest to find true love. He ended up being eliminated on the 11th episode, making him the show's runner-up. He then later was brought back on I Love New York 2 as a guest to help New York pick the right guy that season.

Chance and Real, plus another brother, Micah, are in a rap group known as the Stallionaires, in reference to where they were raised. Chance's case is also noteworthy as not picking him was the only regret New York voiced publicly.

Chance was one of the 17 contestants in the VH1 reality show I Love Money, which features returning contestants from past VH1 reality shows such as Flavor of Love, I Love New York, and Rock of Love with Bret Michaels. The 17 competed in physical and mental challenges en route to a grand prize of $250,000. Chance was eliminated around the middle of the show, after failing at being a "team player" in several challenges and generally being high maintenance. Hoopz was ultimately the winner of I Love Money.
