Sweet Home Alabama
- 4 Seasons
Sweet Home Alabama is a TV show currently airing on CMT, with its first season premiering in the summer of 2011. It's a reality TV show with an emphasis on matchmaking, like The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but with a special twist that makes it unique: it's a battle between the city and the country. In the first season, young Southern belle Devin Grissom meets twenty potential suitors. Ten are traditional Southern gentlemen and ten are city slickers, but all have come to win the lady's heart. As she gets to know each of them, she must decide which of the several suitors to send off the show each week. All the men live together in one house, so tensions are high as they all compete for attention in group activities and individual dates. The woman and her suitors spend time both in the country and the city, giving every one of them a chance to show her what they can do best in their natural habitat. For the second season of the show, which aired in the fall of 2011, the same format was kept, except this time the tables were turned - rejected country bachelor Tribble Reese from the first season became the center of attention, and this time he had to choose from among ten country girls and ten city girls. Similarly, the third season, which aired in the spring of 2012, featured season two favorite Paige Duke as the lucky Southern bachelorette. Out of all the seasons so far, season three is the only one that has yielded a longer relationship. The couples from the first two seasons split very shortly after the show ended. When the third season's finale aired, Paige and her final choice Jeremiah had just celebrated their 3-month anniversary and were still going strong.
