The current season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars is still wrapping up, but the network is already moving forward with the next season — and just announced which stars will be fighting for their love (and just fighting) in May.
“Boot Camp Directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll, joined by co-directors Ilsa Norman and David Bishop, are back and ready to push these reality stars to their limits both physically and emotionally,” WEtv said in a press release. “This season, new exercises such as forcing the couples to pull the plug on their coma-stricken partner to feel what life would be like without them, partnered with Boot Camp staples such as the lie detector test and divorce court, will break these couples down in order to build them back up. However, in the end, they’ll need to answer the ultimate question: Is their union worth saving or are they better off apart?”
As for what issues the couples are facing…
Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett
We all know the parents-of-two have been through the ringer ever since Hank’s alleged affair with a transexual model was exposed last summer. They addressed many of their problems in Kendra on Top last fall, but many issues are still unresolved. In Marriage Boot Camp, “Hank is trying everything in his power to get their lives back on track,” but the question is whether Kendra will be able to forgive and forget.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Lauren Pesce
Last October, Mike’s lawyer referred to Lauren as the former Jersey Shore star’s fiancée — but she isn’t wearing a ring these days, so it’s difficult to know where their relationship stands. According to WEtv, the biggest issue for the former college sweethearts is Lauren’s fear that Mike could start using drugs again.
Aubrey O’Day and Travis Garland
The former Danity Kane singer and ex-boy bander’s relationship is described as volatile and Marriage Boot Camp was their “last resort.” According to WEtv, “Working in the music industry has proven detrimental to the couple and breeds competition and jealousy between them. Their relationship has gotten so toxic she has moved out of the home they once shared.”
Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood
Reggie is, indeed, young blood for Basketball Wives‘ Tami, who is 17 years his senior. Although age gap has caused the couple to split a few times, they always get back together and try to make it work. Will they be able to compromise on their goals or will Reggie’s desire to have kids with Tami derail their whole relationship? Oh, and based on the part of the preview where Tami asked “how many b**ches were you f**king,” there also seem to be some trust issues.
Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd
The Big Brother stars fell in love on camera, but is that also where their relationship will disintegrate? Although they are touted as “the perfect couple,” issues are brewing beneath the surface that threaten to stop the engaged couple from ever making it to the altar. According to WEtv, their biggest issues are communication and coping with the sacrifices they have to make for their relationship.
