Can they survive the last-minute shocks -- or will the stress be too much for them to bear? Jason is studying abroad and wants to throw a surprise wedding for his girlfriend at a chateau in the French countryside. But with only five thousand dollars to spend, he's not sure if he can make her idea of a dream wedding -- a reality. Can Jason blow her away -- or will Melissa be crushed that he couldn't live up to her expectations?

November 1st

2pm ET/PT - "MADE: Survivalists" - Best friends Amanda and Natalie are the ultimate pampered princesses. They tan 7 days a week and never leave the house without a full face of makeup.

Tempers will flare as they fend for themselves without credit cards, cell phones, or bathrooms.

3pm ET/PT- "MADE: Streamer" - Nerdy Harry-Potter fanatic Jamie Fitzgerald is fed up with being a sheltered book worm who has no friends. She's ready for the ultimate transformation.

4pm ET/PT - "MADE: Body Builder" - Southern mama's boy Cody Hammons is tired of being called a sissy. He wants to show everyone that he's tough, by being MADE into a body builder. Ready or not, Cody will have to bare all in an amateur body building contest at California's famed Muscle Beach.

5pm ET/PT - "True Life: I'm In A Summer Share 2" - Summertime has long been an opportunity for young people to get away from the stresses of life and have a little fun in the sun as thousands flock to resort beach areas and shack up with like-minded peers in summer shares.
