Breaking Amish Heads To Los Angeles With Brand New Cast

June 18, 2013 05:02 AM by Lisa Princ

Last year, Breaking Amish debuted on TLC, but the show was not as impressive as some had hoped. In fact, it left many viewers calling out the show as fake. Despite all the negative reactions to the show, season two will hit the air next month, with a brand new cast heading to Los Angeles!

If you’re one of the fans anxiously awaiting the new season of Breaking Amish, which is set to air on TLC next month, you’re in luck! We’ve got a preview of the new season, as well as details on the new cast members.

“This season features brighter skies – and darker secrets – as the cast leave their homes and venture west to live together under one roof, experiencing a lot of ‘firsts’ along the way. Though they share similar backgrounds, they find their lives to be very different, and must not only work to adjust to a new city, but to each other as well. Their entire lives are at stake, as their family, faith, and community may reject them completely based on the decision to venture west,” TLC said of the new season, which premieres on July 21.

The new cast members embarking on their journey in Los Angeles include:

Betsy – Amish, 21 years old, from Ohio. Adopted as a baby into an Amish household, she has tried living outside of the faith, but recently married an Amish man. Despite this, Betsy continues to struggle with being a member of the community, and hopes to come to peace with a decision.

Devon – Amish, 21, from Indiana. Living at home with his Amish parents, Devon remains conflicted about the Amish lifestyle. He remains unsure of his future and is interested in experiencing life with the English before making a final decision.

Iva – Amish, 19 years old, from Pennsylvania. Iva’s parents divorced when she was young, and her father left the community, though her mother remained. Iva explored life among the “English” but hasn’t been able to make it work and remains unsure of where she belongs.

Lizzie – Amish, 21 years old, from Pennsylvania. From a large Amish family, she tried to forge a life outside of the community, much to the disappointment of her parents. Lizzie’s harboring a secret that makes her want to set on a new life journey and hopes that this is her opportunity.

Matt – Mennonite, 24 years old, from Pennsylvania. Matt’s family joined the Mennonite faith when he was 7, changing his life forever. One of his siblings has already left the community, and he wonders if exploring his interest in fashion design will set him on the same path.

    That’s right-CAST members. I lived in Pa, amongst the Amish, and this show should be clearly noted that it is ACTING. No way this is any realistic depiction of the Amish people. It is all a show, and acting. don’t think for one minute anything this show depicts is realistic in any way of what the Amish are like.

    some of the scenes from the first season of Breaking Amish were filmed at a place called Amish Village outside of Lancaster Pa. I’ve been inside the school house and the home that they were filmed in when the wife and i visited Lancaster.You can take a tour of it.

    One of my first girlfriends broke away from amish. She was very sexual. Had some of the best sex ever with her. Talk about releasing tension.

    Isn’t Lizzie (the blonde?) Jeremiah’s old flame? She is the one he left when he went to NYC!

    Been watching Breaking Amish and all the drama. Present crew is messed up and with all the hate, anger, foul language, misdirection, lies, it started to really lose me. I love Mary who came in on a fluke from the old order. So without jobs these kids look like they were living off the fat of the TV payments. Not into the values of life. Let’s hope this next group will have jobs, relationships with the community at large, become upstanding American kids. One more try TLC! And I am a senior woman who still has hope for our young.

    Breaking Amish is as phony as a $3 bill. Do you people think the general population is gullible enough to swallow this tripe. Where do young Amish kids get money to lead the life style you portray in your fabricated story line. None have an above grade school education nor any special talents to land jobs in NY or California so how do they eat, stay in hotels, pay for gasoline, clothes, etc… Get real TLC this is NOT reality tv, it is nothing more than a cart full of fresh manure right off a supposedly Amish farm.

    Fake? I don’t know. Maybe, I’m no expert on the Amish or acting, but I do find it entertaining. Not so sure the new one will do very well. It would be better to stay with these present kids.
    Brenda had you watched earlier shows you would have heard them admit to not having any more then an eighth grade education, and I would imagine the producers pay these people very well so as far as being to afford anything I think that would answer the question.
