‘Marriage Boot Camp’ is an American reality television series also known by the names ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars’ and ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition’. The show, which made its debut on WE tv on May 31, 2013, was inspired by a non-profit seminar called Marriage Boot Camp organized by Jim Carroll in 1994. The show is also a spin-off of the highly successful and long-running reality show, ‘Bridezillas’, also by WE tv.
As the name suggests, ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ is a show aimed at helping struggling couples to deal with their burgeoning problems, so that they can save their relationships/marriages. And it seems like the show has really struck a chord with viewers – since Season 1 first premiered on May 31, 2013, the show has seen a whopping 14 successful seasons air over six years. Now, fans are curious as to whether the show will be making a comeback with yet another season of relationship drama.
Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars Cast: Who’s in it?
The first two seasons of ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ focused on five troubled couples each from earlier seasons of ‘Bridezillas’. In the show, the couples move into a house for 10 days in order to try and save their relationships.
After the second season, ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ severed its connection with ‘Bridezillas’, and started focusing on couples from a vast array of reality television shows like ‘Jersey Shore’, ‘Dancing with the Stars’, ‘Big Brother, ‘The Amazing Race’, to name a few.
The latest Season to air, Season 14, however, was more focused on couples from the various editions of the reality show ‘Love & Hip Hop’. In Season 14, five couples were selected for ‘Marriage Boot Camp’. Wacka Flocka Flame and Tammy Rivera (from ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’), Lil’ Fizz and Tiffany Campbell (from ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’), Soulja Boy and Nia Riley (from ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’), Jessica “Dimepiece” Chatman-Williams and Shawne Williams (from ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta), and Lil’ Mo and Karl Dargan (from ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York’ and ‘R&B Divas: Los Angeles’) made up the five couples.
Meanwhile, as they have done since Season 8, Dr. Ish Major and Dr. Venus “V” Nicolino starred as the hosts and counselors. If ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ does get renewed for yet another season, both Dr. Major and Dr. V are expected to make a comeback, regardless of which couples are selected.
