I haven’t posted any of my reality blogs in awhile because I think most of you come here to read wedding tips. But WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp” has long been a favorite show of mine, mostly because I absolutely adore the program directors, Jim and Elizabeth Carroll.
Unlike most reality TV counseling shows, Jim and Elizabeth Carroll were running the REAL Marriage Boot Camp program out of Texas, offering seminars to couples in trouble all over the country. They never stopped doing those seminars for real couples through out the seven seasons of the reality show. In fact, they’ve expanded their programs to include dating, too.
But anybody who tuned into the season premier of “Marriage Boot Camp” on Friday knows that it’s NOT the same show anymore. Jim and Elizabeth were conspicuously absent – even the participants looked unhappy to see the new cast. And nobody is saying “boo” about what happened.
With that said, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why the couple who launched a reality TV show off their faith-based relationship program might not want to be a part of the hot mess that the show has become. While I’m sure there’s a show out there that would be appropriate for a “throuple,” this is not it. And fans are not happy.
Check out my blog in Monsters and Critics today with enough information to help you draw your own conclusions. If you’re as irritated as I am about the change in cast, let WEtv and Thinkfactory Media (the production company) know about it. I’d rather see the show cancelled than watch the travesty they’ve made of it.
Without Jim and Elizabeth Carroll, it’s not Marriage Boot Camp. #JustSaying #SorryNotSorry
