In my quest to find some new shows to get addicted to as so many of my favorite shows are coming to an end, I stumbled acrossed this show, which premieres on Monday night on ABC. Here Comes the Newlyweds is a reality show.
This show is all about relationships, primarily the differences that men and women face, and the universal issues that every single couple must face, whether in a fresh relationship or old time pros. This will be the second season of the romantic comedy reality series, and ABC calls the contestants, “the newlyweds are just as diverse, sexy and competitive this time around. The nine couples include pairings that range from couples who met at a date auction, a rock concert and church to a couple reunited after 10 years apart and another couple who were still virgins before saying, “I do.” ”
The season is eight episodes. During each episode, the couples will face a variety of challenges. Some are physical and some are mental. These challenges are designed to test the love and passion that the couples share for one another. At the end of each episode, the couples will vote as to which couple they would like to eliminate. As the season continues on, the competition will become quite a bit harder as the serious competitors will remain to fight another day and try to eliminate more of the couples. “The stakes get higher as the potential nest egg grows, until one couple ultimately wins the grand prize. ”
The couples seem pretty interesting (taken from ABC.com):
