Seven Year Switch is back on our screens and one episode in it’s already causing a stir.
For the second season, couples struggling in their relationships will not only have to “switch” partners for the experiment but also participate in an “experimental marriage”.
And here we were thinking Marriage At First Sight had finally ended.
So can a show that forces you to share a bed with a total stranger in a fake relationship really save your real one?
Only someone who’s been through the experience can really know – which is why The Binge invited former ‘contestant’ Michelle Guest from last season on to the podcast to answer the million dollar question. Post continues after audio.
“Whether they go on TV to solve them or not, I think everyone has problems in their relationship. The couples this season I can relate to every one of them in some way as I think most of us can,” she said.
“I think even though when I knew the season was coming up I thought ‘Oh, all the couples are going to be so fake because who in their right mind would go on a partner swapping show’, but I see a lot of desperation in these couples and I can relate to what they’re going through.
“I’m feeling all over again what happened when it was me and when I watched myself back.”
She also shared how helpful the experts really are on the show – and it turns out they really had nothing to do with her own breakthroughs.
