Jenny McCarthy 'Snuck In' to Singled Out Audition After MTV Rejected Her '17 Times' for Playmate

Jenny McCarthy is determined to achieve her goals. The former Playboy Bunny recalled her early aughts career and how she was "back at zero," but she believed she would "make it again" after leaving the Playboy mansion on Monday's Watch What Happens Live.

McCarthy, 51, hosted MTV's Singled Out, a dating game program, from 1995 to 1998 after many tryouts. She attributed the achievement to her efforts.

"I got cast on MTV, but they rejected me 17 times," she told Andy Cohen. "They said, ‘We’ll never have a Playmate on this network.’"

McCarthy "disguised myself" at auditions despite numerous rejections till she was one of the final two candidates. Casting executives identified the former model from her centerfold days.

They asked, ‘Are you that Playmate that kept calling?’" I'm laughing."So that was it," she added, adding that she was competing against an unnamed female comedian.

"She joked! I wasn't. Just being strong. You must be with these men. "I got it by being silly and myself," she said.

Cohen praised her perseverance and said her presence spoke "everything" despite rejections.

"It does," McCarthy said. "If you got a dream, you got to put action towards it."
