VH1 is introducing a new show beginning March 14th titled Wedding Wars. What’s it all about? Think Bridalplasty meets Survivor meets The Real World. Here is the full show’s synopsis from the official VH1 site.
Some people want their wedding to be so perfect they’re willing to fight for it. Literally. On VH1’s new series Wedding Wars, 12 engaged couples will battle each other for the destination wedding of a lifetime. Wedding Wars is a competition-elimination show hosted by Michele Merkin, where each week teams of soon-to-be brides and grooms will fight tooth and nail for a shot at their dream wedding and amazing prizes. But the couples are in for a shock when they learn they won’t be competing at a five star resort. Instead, they’ll be exiled on a remote island location with little food or water and they’ll face hardships that will strain their relationships to the limit. To win their dream wedding, couples must face the elements and survive in the wilderness and compete in challenges that offer some extravagant wedding prizes.
North Hills, CA — This couple has been together for four years after meeting in a boxing class when Angel’s left hook caught Kevin’s attention and won his heart. Will they knock out the competition and win their dream wedding or will the fierce competition on “Wedding Wars” be too much for their relationship?
Corona, CA — Having been together for seven years, this couple is ready to tie the knot. They’re a perfect example of what happens when opposites attract but will Rich’s outgoing nature and Marina’s shy personality impact their chances of winning “Wedding Wars?”
Las Vegas, NV — In the three years they have been dating Sharon wears the pants in this relationship and that is just fine with Michael. His description of Sharon being “not very affectionate” might come in handy during this cutthroat competition to win their dream wedding. This couple is ready to win their dream wedding at any cost–as long as it doesn’t involve eating bugs.
San Jose, CA — After dating for 12 years, Mario and Melinda are ready to win the wedding of their dreams and will lie, cheat & steal to walk down that aisle. Both from a Portuguese background, this couple respects tradition and family can’t wait for the day to finally say “I DO.”
Manchester, NH — Athleticism is nothing new for this couple of three years. Both former jocks, Brandon and Stephanie are always focused on being in first place. Currently living with Stephanie’s parents, they don’t have the cash for their dream wedding and winning this competition is their only shot. Will they be able to play the game with both brains and brawn?
Virginia Beach, VA — Brandon waited over five years to pop the question, but this real life “Ken & Barbie” are more than ready for their dream wedding. Jessica’s classic blonde good looks and Brandon’s goofy sense of humor might win them friends, but will it help them win Wedding Wars?
Houston, TX — This couple brings some serious southern attitude and describe themselves as being “the best looking couple in the world.” Hollywood’s muscles, tattoos and gold teeth make him hard to miss while Kat is “feisty,” refuses to be ignored and does not take b.s. from anyone. They may need more than just their looks if they want to win their dream wedding.
Houston, TX — Jay and Dee have been together for two years and put fitness first. Winning is everything in their war for a dream wedding and it might just bring out the worst in them. Will Jay’s competitive spirit hurt their chances of being the winning couple or will their fitness capabilities take them to the end?
East Meadow, NY — After dating for over two years, Frankie proposed and Sofia said yes but they just can’t afford their dream wedding. Frankie works in sales and Sofia is currently unemployed. This couple is proud of their Greek heritage and ready to go for the big prize if only to fly their huge extended family over from the old country for their big day.
Studio City, CA — Elsie has the brains and Joseph has the brawn. After dating for five years, they’re still living in separate apartments out of respect for Elsie’s pastor dad. Will their fair and friendly game get them far enough to win the prize or will “Wedding Wars” turn them into ruthless competitors?
Los Angeles, CA — Even though they have only been dating a little over a year this couple has unbeatable sexual chemistry proudly citing their membership in the mile-high club. Johnnie met Celestria while she was dating someone else but quickly stole her heart. Will his “Johnnie-on-the-spot” personality help them win this competition like he won Celestria’s heart?
Austin, TX — After meeting and serving in the Marines together, this couple of five years is approaching “Wedding Wars” like they’re on the front lines. They freely admit to being “backstabbers” and plan to bring the competition to a new level. They don’t intend to make friends and warn their competition to “watch your back.” How many lies will they tell to win it big?
Michele is a model and television host and is thrilled to be hosting this new VH1 show. Past hosting credits include ABC’s The Next Big Thing and NBC’s For Love or Money.
