Airdate: Wife Swap Australia

Revived reality series will finally hit screens next week on Seven.

Wife Swap Australia will finally hit screens next week on Seven.

The reality show by Screentime was originally due in 2019, then 2020, but will now sit in a Thursday 8:30 slot.

Of this premise let’s just say, do not attempt at home…?

All around Australia, everyday parents are raising their children with different rules, values and mindsets – but who can say their way is the best?

The explosive new series Wife Swap Australia sees two wives, worlds apart, swap lives and families for a week, putting their opposing parenting styles to the ultimate test in front of the nation.

In each episode’s swap, two wives write a household manual describing their rules and how to run their home. They must first live by each other’s rules – no matter how difficult, uncomfortable, or how strongly opposed to them they are.

Then the wives take back control, laying down their own set of rules which their new husband and children must obey, turning everyone’s lives upside down.

At the end of the swap, the wives are reunited with their husbands before the couples come face to face in an emotionally charged meeting to discuss their experiences.

Control vs chaos, education vs unschooling, tech-obsessed vs off the grid, penny-pinching vs frivolous spending – who’s the better parent? You be the judge.

8.30pm Thursday, 11 February on Seven.

  1. One ad showed a woman putting the other family’s kids onto social media. This is beyond entertainment and could be considered abuse. It is a long way from making the other’s kids sit at the table to eat. It could affect the rest of their lives.
