Wife Swap: Adams And Hess Families

April 30, 2010 08:36 PM by Lisa Princ


Tonight on the second half of the Wife Swap doubleheader on ABC it’s animals versus divas. We’ll meet one family with a filthy home cluttered with animals, and another that is spotless run by controlling parents. Just how will these families fare when their lives are turned upside down? Keep reading for all the details!

First, we met the Hess family on Wife Swap on ABC. This family lives in a home that never gets cleaned and is filled with animals, 29 of them to be exact from dogs to reptiles to a skunk. This family lacks any sort of discipline and mom, Amanda cares more about spending time with her animals than her children. Amanda does not believe in keeping up appearances and it shows in her home, while dad, Paul gets no respect from anyone in his family.

Next, we met the Adams family on Wife Swap on ABC. Samantha and Michael have one daughter, who they treat more like a slave than a child. They do not allow her to date, hang out with friends or have any pets in the home. Instead, she must do all the chores, clean to Samantha’s high standards and serve mom and dad constantly.


As the swap gets underway on Wife Swap on ABC it is clear that both of these families are going to have a hard time. Samantha is completely disgusted immediately upon entering the Hess’s home from the smell, and refuses to eat there. She winds up spending the night in a hotel instead, which hurt and offended Paul. She continued to offend Paul by calling them lazy while she sat around and did nothing forcing the kids to clean. She removed the home of all the animals and told the children if they cleaned the animals would return. She and Paul butted heads numerous times, and she even brought Paul to tears. Eventually she did manage to work together with the family in getting the home clean and sanitary once again, and the animals returned.

Over at the Adam’s household, Amanda was having a hard time getting Michael to see how he treated his daughter more like a slave. She decided to introduce animals into the home, but Michael wanted no part of it and threatened to remove them, but he never actually did. Amanda did manage to get Michael to see how he needed to let his daughter be a child and hang out with her friends instead of spending so much time waiting on them. Eventually, Michael allowed her to go out with some friends, with himself close by of course, but hey it was a start!

At the table meeting on Wife Swap on ABC there was yet another blow up between Paul and Samantha, but eventually things calmed down and they were able to talk. After the swap, the Hess family started to take better care of their home, and their appearances all around. In the Adam’s home, Samantha and Michael started to treat their daughter like the young lady she is instead of a slave. This was definitely one successful swap!

Be sure to tune in next Friday at 8 pm EST for another episode of Wife Swap on ABC.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the adam’s daughter committed suicide. They are some trifling parents. Just sad to see people proud of bad parenting. Disgusting.

    Paul is disgusting, and a horrible father. That family does not care at all about there child’s success. They want them to be unhappy and overweight just like their parents. You guys are trailer trash and will only perpetuate your children becoming white trash, unsuccessful, overweight, unhealthy and not responsible. How do you expect your children to grow up and be useful member of society if you do not rear them in the right direction. And as far as the mother, you are horrible! You care about your animals more than you care about your own children, your family is disgusting trailer trash. Way to perpetuate the “white trash” stereotype.

    SUCK MY BALLS you guys are crazy, the Adams family resembled a great family that america lacks today. The father reminds me of a young hitler (in a good way of course). He has many thought out logical one liners. The mother is a swag queen bee. One might call her a swagger hound, she collects everybodys swag and hounds it. The daughter was a fuckin 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being SWAG)
