We are currently seeking an Amazing Weight Loss Story to feature on season four! A woman who was overweight and lacked confidence while growing up, teased in high school, but has now made an amazing transformation. We feel it would be a real inspiration to the viewers at home. The match possibilities are endless, but her new found confidence and healthy life style would benefit just about any family.
Wife Swap is a fascinating story of what happens when two married couples see themselves and their spouses in a whole new light. Time Magazine calls Wife Swap "a riveting examination of family values." The New York Post says, "It should be called ‘Life Swap’ because it's not just the wives who learn something here. It's the families."
The premise of Wife Swap is simple: for two weeks, two wives from two different families with very different values exchange husbands, children and lives (but not bedrooms) to discover what it’s like to live a different woman’s life.
Wife Swap families rave about their experiences on the show. Jodi Spolansky, a New York City heiress who appeared on the premiere episode, says “What a great way to step outside your life and see how someone else lives.” Caprice Pollichio, who swapped places on another episode says, “I was not ready for Wife Swap to end after two weeks.”
Requirements: Each family must consist of two parents and at least one child between 7 and 17 and should reside in the continental U.S. (There may be other children living in the home who are older or younger than the required age - as long as one child is in the required age range.)
Participating in the show is a very unique experience that can be life changing for everyone. In addition, each family that tapes an episode of Wife Swap receives $20,000 as compensation for their time. Anyone who refers a family that appears on our program receives $1000 as a 'thank you’ from us.
