Hosted by comedian Pat Bullard (originally from Toronto), “Here Come the Newlyweds” is all about relationships, the differences between men and women and the universal issues that couples face. The newlyweds are diverse, sexy and competitive, including such pairings as high school sweethearts, couples who fell in love at first sight, an arranged marriage, an interracial couple and two divorcees who are hoping the fourth time is the charm.
In this six-episode series, each couple faces a variety of mental and physical challenges which will test the love and passion they have for one another as well as their competitive spirit. At the end of each episode, the field will be narrowed as the couples vote to send one couple home. The stakes get higher as the potential nest egg grows, until one couple ultimately wins the grand prize.
Those eager to take home the big cash winnings are:
Fawziah & Atif Bajwa
An arranged marriage, this couple had only one date before their wedding, which lasted three days and had over 500 guests.
