If a relationship can survive Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, it can probably survive anything.
Gretchen and Slade may end up one of the less dramatic couples of the show, alongside Jersey Shore's Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Roger Matthews, The Bachelorette's Trista and Ryan Sutter, Braxton Family Values' Traci Braxton and Kevin Surratt, and the already uber-dramatic former Bad Girls Club member Tanisha Thomas and her husband Clive Muir.
Tanisha dominates the promo, but there's also footage of Gretchen and Slade getting emotional. Around the 48-second mark we see them both ugly cry, and shortly afterward we hear Gretchen sob, "I might love him more than he loves me." Not possible! (Although she did propose to him…) Another part of the same talk airs toward the end of the video, when we hear say Gretchen say, “I feel further apart.”
But she’s not the only one getting caught up in the feels. At 1:03, Slade tearfully says, "My life just doesn't matter without you," which may be part of the show making the couples react to the idea of their partner dying. There are hints to that in the video; the couples also have to survive some kind of fire, plus a lie detector test, and of course each other.
In the end, the couples will have to make the ultimate choice — stay together or break up. It doesn't look like this show breaks Gretchen and Slade, since Gretchen was still tweeting about wedding locations and other plans in April.
But she's also been tweeting promotion for Marriage Boot Camp, which premieres Friday, May 30 at 9 p.m. on We-TV.
