Colorado-native Kim Beckman-Heskett is a high-powered corporate mom whose husband Randall is a stay-at-home dad. Randall, a former preacher, does all of the housework and child-rearing while Kim heads out to bring home the bacon. A brainiac-type with multiple theologydegrees under his belt, Randall is skeptical of what he calls “Bible-thumpers” and believes religion and humor go well together. A devout Christian with a dose of cynicism, Randall just might see some sparks flywhen he meetshis “new wife,” Lee-Ann Childs.
Lee-Ann is a bit more “traditional” in her beliefs. She’s a born-again Christian who uses a literal translation of the Bible as a guide to her life and the lives of her children and husband. Lee-Ann believes a woman’s place is that of supporting role for the man of the house, and not only stays at home, but home schools her 6 children. Lee-Ann’s husband Christopher is the “man of the house,” calling himself the “gatekeeper,” and Lee-Ann is more than happy to be his “help-mate.”
Expect an emotional episode as differences in religion come into play between the families and both Kim and Lee-Ann are forced to confront their core beliefs.
Wife Swap airs Wednesdays, 8:00 PM (ET), on ABC.
