'Wife Swap's 100th episode to feature new swap of fan favorites
By Reality TV World staff, 02/09/2009
Wife Swap is planning on celebrating it's 100th episode with a new swap of two blasts from the past.
ABC has announced that the Heene family from Colorado and the Silver family from Florida -- the two families that won an abc.com poll which asked viewers to vote for two former Wife Swap families they'd liked to see appear on the show again -- will be swapping lives for series' 100th episode which will air on Friday, March 13 at 8PM ET/PT.
The Heenes are "storm chasing" and "science obsessed" while the Silvers are "psychic" and "performing arts-loving."
"When the Heene family aren't chasing storms, they devote their time to scientific experiments that include looking for extraterrestrials and building a research-gathering flying saucer to send into the eye of the storm," according to ABC.
Meanwhile, the Silver family features a "psychic mom who speaks to the dead and can control the weather, her husband and her children -- who believe they are destined to be stars."
Wife Swap is produced by RDF USA, with Mike Gamson, Stef Wagstaffe and Michael Davies, Stephen Pettinger, Neil Regan, Julie Cooper, and Will Nothacker serving as executive producers.
