Reality TV gives alumni couple chance at dream wedding

  • December 13, 2010 5:30am

Alumni Adam Fresquez,’06 Theatre Arts, and Dawn Pino, ’05 Communication, have a chance at winning their dream wedding. All they have to do is be the couple with the least – the least weight, that is.

You'll be able to watch their challenge this winter on the new reality TV show, “Shedding for the Wedding,” on the CW Network.

Fresquez and Pino, who’ve been together four years, were contacted by the show's producers who had seen the couples’ 11-minute engagement video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/Sweettooth33?feature=mhum

Similar to NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” the show puts 10 overweight couples in the same house, where they live together during the three-month competition and each compete in physical challenges that will give them a chance to win wedding-themed prices such as invitations, a cake, and rings. Each week, the couple that loses the least accumulative amount of weight gets sent home. The ultimate winners will receive a televised, fantasy wedding.

The show’s opening date has not yet been announced, but a preview is at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyJnm9IPKF4
