Wife Swap is all new tonight on ABC. There are no more celebrities, just every day
whackos normal people willing to switch households for two weeks. This week, a Vegas party mom has a rough time adjusting to life on the farm. You don’t want to miss “Big Juicy’s'” reaction when she learns she will have to live on a farm.
We get to meet “Big Juicy” – yes, she really calls herself that. Her actual name is Marissa, but her Vegas party name is Big Juicy. This mom likes to party and be pampered. Marissa has one son, Jake, who she spoils rotten. Besides her husband, Marissa also have a live-in gay BFF who also doubles as the manny.
Of course the other mom, Angela, is the polar opposite of Big Juicy. Picture singing Christians, working on a farm – with no electricity! Scary isn’t it? The family of eight once lived in a huge house, but gave it all up because God called them to take care of this farm. “We don’t have a ton of fun, but there is a restaurant we like to go to for chips and cheese,” Angela tells the cameras.
The moms pack their bags and head off to their new households for the next two weeks. Angela is frightened when she arrives in Sin City and clutches her Bible tightly in her hands. But there are actual screams from Big Juicy when she pulls up to a farm! “I don’t feel like this is real, I think this is a movie,” Big Juicy says in disbelief.
Next up the moms read the manuals/rules for their new houses. Angela has no clue what a manny is and Marissa is struggling with killing and eating animals. Marissa is first to meet the family and the Dad is a little, let’s say shocked at her appearance – referring to her giant boobs that are hanging out of her shirt. Angela is a little taken back by the manny, Princess.
After hours of cooking, the family in Michigan finally sits down for a home-cooked meal. The six kids are actually “disgusted” by Marissa’s gay manny. Marissa is shocked by the kids reaction and tries to explain that being gay isn’t a choice. Speaking of Princess, he is currently trying to loosen Angela up by taking her out to a club. The Christian mother orders a coffee and ends up leaving the bar because she is so stressed out by everyone’s behavior.
The next day, Big Juicy is in tears because she is using an axe to cut the head off a chicken. There is an endless list of chores on the farm and Marissa feels like she is in hell. Back in Vegas, Princess has to drag Angela out for dinner with another friend. Angela doesn’t understand why Marissa chooses to spend more time with her manny than her husband or son.
Its rule change time! Marissa shows up with a lamp and plugs it in; she has turned on the electricity. It’s all about TVs, video games and make-overs for the Michigan family. While Angela has agreed to let Princess stay in the household, Walter must step up as a parent to Jake. The first family outing for Walter and Jake is a petting zoo. “It’s humiliating,” is how Angela describes Jake’s behavior in public. It’s make-over day for the girls on the farm “I want to treat them and say yes you can have whatever you want,” Marissa tells the girls. When the youngest daughter cries because she can’t get everything she wants, Big Juicy realizes she doesn’t want to spoil the kids.
It’s time to reunite the wives with their husbands. The two couples sit down to discuss their experiences. Big Juicy admits she saw Angela’s kids as slaves. “Can I ask you why you dress the way you do?” Angela rudely asks Marissa. Then the topic turns to Princess and Big Juicy gets heated defending her manny. “You’re a horrible Christian!” Marissa yells at Angela. But Angela and Matt don’t want to make peace, even after Marissa says she fell in love with their kids.
Weeks later we learn that Princess has moved out of Big Juicy’s house and Angela lets the kids play video games for ten minutes a day.
