Singles Throw Their Parents Into the Dating Pool to Find Them a Spouse on TLC's "Married by Mom and Dad"
Season two launches Sunday, November 27 at 10:00/9:00c on the cable channel.

[via press release from TLC]


Second season premieres Sunday, November 27 at 10/9c on TLC

Forget the fads and dating advice, it's time to bring in the real experts to find Mr. or Mrs. Right. Men and women who have yet to find "the one" have agreed to put their love lives in the hands of the people who know them best - their parents. Once their parents find the person they think is the perfect match, the arranged couple will meet for the first time at the altar to tie the knot, and find out if mom and dad really do know best.

This season one man and three women who have not been lucky in love let their parents do the dating for them. But not every suitor is a contender in the parents' eyes - one person admits to breaking the rules when they tracked down and reached out to one of the singles via social media. For another suitor, her parents tag along to her first meeting with a potential spouse's parents, and they won't let her get a word in edgewise. One dad even takes a suitor to a gun range to intimidate him and find out if he's really ready for marriage. The second season of MARRIED BY MOM AND DAD premieres Sunday, November 27 at 10/9c, following the season premiere of SISTER WIVES.

This season's singles include:

Devin (Tampa, Florida)

26 year-old former NFL player, Devin hopes to put an end to his frequent string of one-night stands and finally settle down with a woman who loves him for him and not just for his money. Devin trusts that his parents, who have been married for 29 years, can weed out the women who aren't serious, but he hopes they can find someone he finds physically attractive as well.

Tahnee (Pleasanton, California)

30 year-old Tahnee admits that dating is not her favorite thing, and that it has become more difficult the older she has gotten. But now that most of her friends are getting married and having babies, Tahnee is ready for these milestone moments for herself. Tahnee's biological mother and stepmother will help find her future spouse.

Bethany (Charlotte, North Carolina)

24 year-old Bethany is happy with her life and her career as a 5th grade teacher, but is eager to share these moments with someone. Her parents have been divorced since she was five years old, but she still trusts them to make this important decision for her.

Marissa (San Diego, California)

27 year-old Marissa admits that she has high expectations when it comes to relationships, and that she's not afraid to let a guy know when he's not meeting her standards. Her parents have been married for over 30 years and Marissa looks to their traditional marriage as an example.
