Asked about the show, Tocarra said,
“Being on The Ultimate Merger has been the most amazing experience, both professionally and personally. I spend so much time on the road and focused on my career, it’s not been easy to meet the man of my dreams and develop a real relationship. It’s been incredibly hard work, but to have this time to focus on nothing else – and do it as part of my career – has been a fantastic opportunity. I am very excited for the TV One audience to be able to watch how the series unfolds and see who from among this incredible group of men I end up falling in love with.”
