Second edition of NBC's 'Who Wants to Marry My Dad?' to premiere June 14
By Reality TV World staff, 04/05/2004
NBC has announced that a second installment of Who Wants to Marry My Dad?, the network's popular Meet My Folks spin-off that aired to surprisingly strong ratings last summer, will debut Monday, June 14 at 10PM ET/PT.
As in last year's original installment of the series, three adult children of a handsome single father will once again choose among thirteen women to decide which one would be the ideal wife for their Dad -- only this time the children will be three daughters.
Promising even more surprising twists and turns than the original series, the six-episode second edition of Who Wants to Marry My Dad? will also include the outrageous “secret tasks” and popular lie detector tests that made the show a hit with viewers last summer.
Additionally, in a move that is remarkably similar to ABC's announced plans for its Jesse Palmer-led fifth edition of The Bachelor which premieres this Wednesday, this summer's edition of Who Wants to Marry My Dad? will feature a "secret mole" hidden among the contestants -- the daughters' aunt.
Beyond the secret inclusion of the aunt as one of the program's competing contestants, Dad 2 will feature other subterfuge, including the father going undercover in the first episode to secretly meet the women without them knowing it’s him and a high-stakes adventure where the women’s ex-boyfriends show up as jockeys on horseback at Santa Anita racetrack.
In the end, as in last season, the girls will decide which woman their father will marry and their father will propose to the winner. Of course whether the couple will actually get to the altar is another matter.
Sure enough, several weeks later Mueller quietly confirmed the couple's break-up in an interview with his local newspaper, stating that the engagement ended because neither the Cincinnati Mueller or the San Diego-based Ferran wanted to relocate -- an issue that they apparently neglected to discuss during their televised courtship.
Whether this year's couple will be more successful, we'll find out this summer.
