Fans of Reality TV -- “Trading Spouses – Meet Your New Mommy” Renewed.
Though the reception it received was often lukewarm, Trading Spouses will return for a second season.
Just as in season 1, season 2 will see more spouses challenged with living with a family very different from their own for seven days. Reality television feeds on controversy, so viewers can no doubt expect more “dazed and confused” scenarios as the families adapt to sharing their homes with a mother or father substitute and often a boatload of somebody else’s children.
This “Rocket Science Laboratories” series, from the producers of reality winners “My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé” and “Joe Millionaire” is sure to produce some volatile mixes.
If the first season is anything to go by, some families will flourish under new “management” others will flounder and many will discover a newfound appreciation of their family.
Once again, FOX offers a “prize” of $50,000 to participating families, with the twist that the decision on how those resources will be allocated will rest with the surrogate parent.
