Wife Swap Australia

About the Show

About the Show

Have you ever wondered whether the grass is greener on the other side of the fence? From moody teenagers and spoilt children to errant husbands and trophy wives, this series gives a whole new meaning to domestic bliss and lifts the lid on what it means to be Australian in the 21st century. WIFE SWAP AUSTRALIA is not a competition or a contest. It is a reality show unlike any other, where the battlegrounds are the kitchens and living rooms, child-rearing is a subject of intense and heated debate, and the outcome isn’t a cash prize, but a couple’s opportunity to re-discover why they love each other and decided to marry in the first place. With its mirror on Australian domestic lives, this series sees sparks fly as two wives from radically different families swap places for a week. It’s not just the wives that need to get used to a new family, but the husbands and children are given a wake-up call too as they have to adapt to new house routines. Packed with suspense and jeopardy, WIFE SWAP AUSTRALIA gets right to the heart of the way we live and lifts the lid on the choices different people make about how to live their lives: people’s spending priorities, what they expect of their partners of an evening, how they divide up the parenting, the shopping, the housework, how much or how little they go out, what role food plays in their lives, and what they want from their social lives. At the end of the show, the two couples meet for the first time. In a highly-charged exchange of views, both couples make a frank assessment of each other and talk about what they've learned from the experience.

I would love my family to participate in this programme, but as my brother has an illness, I don't think that he or mum would want to be apart for any length of time :-( too bad, we could learn so much...

Oh my gosh. Cindy! Well done!!! You did a great job. Don't listen to all the hate! What horrible things they have said. Whatever happend to Aussies being kind hearted and accepting??
I work in a Catholic School and I see what teenage girls wear - high waisted shorts, who cares! We have all worn something that someone somewhere hasn't liked at some stage. No biggie.
Also - regular viewers would know wife swap is about showing diversity between families.
Surely both families are aware of this before entering.
I'm sure people must know that their is alot of editing in these shows too! Things are made out to be more dramatic than they actually are.

The little clocks on the Series & Episodes page seem to be the rating stars for each show...
