Plot Synopsis

MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP: REALITY STARS is a one-hour reality series that follows five couples who were once reality stars as they live together in a house and undergo an extreme marriage boot camp so they can work out relationship issues. During a two-week boot camp, counselors go head to head with the couples, putting them through a progressive series of strategic exercises and drills designed to get at the root of what's destroying their relationships. At the end of boot camp, the couples are faced with the ultimate decision: remain together or throw in the towel. The counselors are the husband-and-wife counseling team of Jim and Elizabeth Carroll, who are founders of The Marriage Boot Camp (http://www.marriagebootcamp.com). On Friday, May 30, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT, this spin-off of MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP premiered with these five couples: JERSEY SHORE's JWoww and her fiance Roger; Trista & Ryan Sutter from THE BACHELOR and THE BACHELORETTE; THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY's Gretchen Rossi and fiance Slade Smiley; BRAXTON FAMILY VALUES' Traci Braxton and Kevin Surratt; and BAD GIRLS CLUB alumnus Tanisha Thomas and Clive Muir. WEtv premiered the second season of MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP: REALITY STARS on Friday, January 9, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT with these five couples: THE HILLS' Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt, who face their biggest marital challenge -- starting a family; RHONY's Aviva & Reid Drescher, who are determined to make their marriage work despite TV friends driving a wedge between them; BAD GIRLS CLUB's Natalie Nunn & pro-football player husband Jacob Payne, who are working on jealousy and separation issues; Tyson Apostol & Rachel Foulger from SURVIVOR's Season 27 (Blood vs. Water), who are working through their different views of getting married; and R&B DIVAS star Syleena Johnson and former pro-basketball player Kiwane Garris, who struggle with communication but have a darker secret destroying their marriage. On Friday, May 29, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on WE tv, MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP: REALITY ALL STARS returned for its third season, immediately following a brand-new one-hour special, "Where Are They Now?," from 8-9pm. 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. 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. The Season 3 cast includes: KENDRA ON TOP's Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett; JERSEY SHORE's Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino & Lauren Pesce; MAKING THE BAND's Aubrey O'Day & Travis Garland; BASKETBALL WIVES' Tami Roman & Reggie Youngblood; and BIG BROTHER's Jeff Schroeder & Jordan Lloyd. Season 4 of MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP: REALITY STARS premiered on Friday, December 4, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on WE tv, immediately following a three-hour marathon (6-9pm) of encore episodes from the previous season. This season follows Sean Lowe & Catherine Giudici (THE BACHELOR), Benzino & Althea Heart (LOVE & HIP HOP: ATLANTA), Sundy Carter & Cedric (BASKETBALL WIVES: LA), Sarah Oliver & Jimmy "Inkman" Coney (BAD GIRLS CLUB) and one of TV's most controversial couples Mama June & Sugar Bear (HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO), who make their return to the small screen after a public scandal. These five celebrity couples fight for their survival under the weight of a vicious tabloid scandal, a secret affair and a shocking pregnancy. An unimaginable truth emerges, but not before Boot Camp spirals into chaos. Directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll, along with co-directors Ilsa Norman and David Bishop, are up against the most volatile and challenging Boot Camp yet, and as a result, will unleash a secret weapon on this outrageous group to help reign in their relationships. In the premiere episode, the drama begins immediately when infamous, hip-hop powder keg couple Benzino and fiancee Althea Heart arrive at the mansion fighting. Marriage Boot Camp is their last resort, but it may already be too late. Enter America's picture perfect sweethearts, Sean Lowe and wife Catherine Giudici. They come to work on their communication skills, but are instantly swept up into the turmoil. What the newlyweds discover about themselves is less than rosy. It's recommit or quit for Sundy Carter & ex-husband Cedric Carter. Cedric wants to put a ring on it, again, but Sundy has been stringing him along since their divorce 15 years ago. Bootylicious Sarah Oliver is tired of walking on the wild side and wants to settle down with boyfriend Jimmy "Inkman" Coney, who has a penchant for threesomes, and the truth remains murky for Mama June & Sugar Bear as they look to Marriage Boot Camp as their last chance to salvage their relationship wrecked by a scandal that has torn their family apart. After the eager boot campers arrive at the compound, a booming voice interrupts the flow of champagne and conversations, redirecting the cast to an undiscovered room. The couples find themselves right in the middle of a bizarre and twisted version of THE NEWLYWED GAME hosted by none other than, Bob Eubanks. Unfortunately, none of the couples are walking away with any prizes today. Eubanks will quiz each couple, digging deep into the secrets running their relationships. Season 5 of MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP: REALITY STARS premiered on Friday, June 3, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on WEtv, with Tara Reid & Dean May, Michelle Money & Cody Sattler, Lisa D'Amato & Adam Friedman, Toya Wright & Memphitz, and Brittish Williams & Lorenzo Gordon entering extreme relationship counseling led by Jim and Elizabeth Carroll. And for the first time in Boot Camp history, a couples' dark secret, rocks the boot camp to its core. The first episode introduces viewers to the couples who have brought with them their relationship woes along with a lot of personal baggage. BACHELOR IN PARADISE stars Michelle Money and Cody Sattler's relationship is anything but paradise. Popular amongst the Bachelor Nation couples, Michelle and Cody seemed destined to be together for the long-haul but lack of communication and trust issues has been plaguing their relationship and creating serious doubt, mostly on Michelle's part, on whether they are truly right for each other. Former AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL star Lisa D'Amato is a true free spirit, while her husband, Adam Friedman, whose hobby of being a doomsday prepper has turned into an obsession, is constantly worried that something bad will happen. His constant criticism of her parenting skills and his fear of everything including the thought of having a second child into the world is destroying their marriage. Despite already saying "I Do," TOYA: A FAMILY AFFAIR's Toya Wright and Memphitz are currently living separately and have very different perspectives on what a modern-day marriage should look like. With Memphitz acting like a single man and refusing to fully commit to their marriage, Toya goes out of her way to try to and keep him happy including granting him a "hall pass" which she never imagines he will use. However, the revelation that he has used it, several times, is devastating and could be the final straw that ends their relationship. BASKETBALL WIVES star Brittish Williams and her ball playing fiance Lorenzo Gordon have been engaged for two years, but Lorenzo is a serial cheater who takes no accountability for his actions. Before they can think about walking down the aisle, Brittish needs to decide whether she can move past Lorenzo's cheating ways. The couples are in complete shock when they discover the fifth and final couple, SHARKNADO's Tara Reid and her boyfriend Dean May, and immediately question the state of their relationship. The iconic Montel Williams kicks off the couple's first shocking exercise -- a Marriage Boot Camp talk show. Known for his no-holds-barred interview style, Montel immediately puts the celebrity pairs in the hot seat, as he digs deep to get to the core of their issues. Shocking secrets are exposed, feelings get hurt, tempers quickly reach their boiling points and this is only day one.

Upon arrival, their lack of respect for each other is apparent. THE BACHELORETTE darlings, Ashley and JP Rosenbaum, disagree on parenting approaches for their son, Ford. Ashley is also frustrated by JP's tunnel vision with work, while JP finds Ashley's inability to put him first reprehensible. Engaged since 2015, PreMadonna and Buck Thomas from LOVE AND HIP HOP: ATLANTA aren't even close to locking-in a wedding date. Buck seems to have cold feet and insists they first get to the root of their problems, while PreMadonna believes the problem is there's no wedding date! BAD GIRLS CLUB star, Gabi Victor and her baby daddy, Victor Tarrats come to Marriage Boot Camp dogged with issues that stem from Gabi's unexpected pregnancy. Now they are trying to raise a toddler in a very tumultuous relationship. Plus, Gabi's best friend and BAD GIRLS CLUB costar, Dani hates Victor with a passion, so it's double trouble when she is invited to be a surprise guest in the house. Lastly, MOB WIVES star, Renee Graziano and boyfriend Joey Gambino have been secretly dating for 2 years, keeping their relationship hidden from Renee's dad, notorious mobster Anthony Graziano. Renee thinks Joey is ashamed of her but perhaps Joey is afraid of how her legendary dad will react.
