Wife Swap Australia heads to Thursdays on 7

Seven has revealed Wife Swap Australia will screen on Thursdays from next week.

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.


Wife Swap Australia Premieres 8.30pm Thursday, 11 February on 7
