VH1 has announced Bridal Bootcamp, a new reality competition series that will follow 10 brides-to-be as they attempt to shed unwanted weight before their weddings, will premiere Wednesday, June 9 at 10PM ET/PT.
Bridal Bootcamp will divide the 10 women into two teams and enroll them in a special boot camp designed to turn them into bombshell brides before their big day.
In each episode, the two teams will participate in various challenges -- with the winning group receiving immunity while the losing team is forced to the "Fitting Room," where each member will face a weigh-in and possible elimination.
The woman left standing at the end of the competition will win her dream wedding.
Cynthia Conde -- the founder and author of "Bridal Bootcamp" -- will serve as the lead trainer for the participants and will be assisted by fellow trainers Steve Pfeister and Francesca Petrucci.
The 10 women competing on Bridal Bootcamp are Amberly from San Diego, CA; Courtney, who lives on a cruise ship; Jamie from Elmendorf AFB, AK; Kacey from Rosamond, CA; Kelley from Murfreesboro, TN; Lauren from Old Forge, PA; Melissa from Pittsburgh, PA; Tara from Spring Hill, TN; Tesha from Portsmouth, VA; and Tina from Harriman, TN.
The eight-episode series is being produced by Leftfield Pictures.
In addition to Bridal Bootcamp, VH1 announced You're Cut Off! -- a new reality series that will follow nine young women as they attend "spoiled rotten rehab" -- will premiere June 9 in the 9PM ET/PT timeslot.
