VIDEO: Sneak Peek - New Season of WEtv's MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP
After a decade of "Bridezillas," many of America's most notorious brides and their befuddled spouses are wondering why they ever walked down the aisle. Enter husband and wife counseling duo, Jim and Elizabeth Carroll and WE tv's MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP. Premiering Friday, March 7 at 9PM ET/PT with 10 hour-long episodes, the second season of this addictive series follows the return of five iconic "Bridezillas" couples: Tasha & Jeff, Blanca & Julian, Sofia & Shaun, Mai-Lee & Tomas and Gloria & Mark - whose marriages are on the brink of destruction and now must endure this extreme marriage boot camp in a last attempt to live happily ever after... or not.
MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP chronicles five couples who live under the same roof for two solid weeks and are presented with grueling exercises and drills - both highly physical and emotional - designed to get at the root of what is destroying their marriage. The couples come to boot camp with some heavy baggage: Tasha & Jeff a couple from Eastvale, CA who has already filed papers to end their union; Blanca & Julian from Ontario, CA whose marriage has been torn apart because of finances; Sofia & Shaun from Philadelphia, PA who constantly get into screaming matches with each other; Mai-Lee & Tomas from Hialeah, FL who suffer from ongoing jealousy and trust issues; and Gloria & Mark from Columbus, OH whose marriage is simply on autopilot.
In the premiere episode, everyone's dirty laundry is exposed as boot campers reveal the deepest, darkest secrets about their failing marriages. The first drill at boot camp begins quickly when couples must chose bricks labeled with the problems that plague their marriages. The boot campers are shocked to learn they must then tread water while holding these bricks weighing up to100 lbs., driving home the idea that they are literally drowning under the weight of their problems. Later an alcohol fueled fight sparks a mid-night standoff that immediately leaves the housemates divided.
