    Internet sleuthing reveals Mariel is engaged to a crew member of the #3 team and neighbors Whitney and Austin.

    I should be banned for looking that up.

    What's the worst that could happen? None of you are forced to watch. Plus on the off chance it becomes a huge success, then it's good for NASCAR.

    The existing audience of CMT would probably have some amount of interest in the show (educated guess) so who knows maybe it could be a hit.

    I used to dislike reality shows when I was younger but now I watch a few of them. 90 Day Fiancee, The Last Alaskans, Ice Road Truckers, Gold Rush, Deadliest Catch.

    uugggghhhh....a big NEGATIVE for me. I will not watch staged, rehearsed "reality" where some yahoo is all bent out of shape because they don't like their haircut. If they want me to tune in go find Martha Elliot (Bills fist wife), Shana Mayfield or Buffy Waltrp. There could be some interesting stories there. Tell some "real" stuff that fans don't know about. Who gives a rip about a bunch of pampered trophy wives? I recall NASCAR 360. mercifully, it didn't last too long. I for one hope this tripe never sees the light of day.

    Good idea until it gets better rating than a race.

    I say no because the women on these types of shows are made to look like b****s. They want conflict to make the show interesting. Really, that is the only way to make it interesting. This will reflect on the drivers, not in a good way IMO.

    I wonder if they’ll be sending burly guys out to tie people to their chairs and forcing them to watch?

    Is this out of date? It says '22 Mar' at the top. I don't claim to understand Twitter, but I know I didn't set my clock forward that far.

    Recently when I was traveling I stopped for the evening and turned the TV on. I don't know what the show was called but it had a bunch of women who were well acquainted with Botox. The program should have been called A-Flock-A-Lips-Now.

    Bad idea. Samantha Busch already makes the sport look bad with her fake reactions for the camera. Something like this makes NASCAR look phony, imo. Bad image.

    I am with you on this one with the Force family. I also liked the show from early 2000's with Busch, Bowyer, Kenny Wallace and not sure who else. But my all time favorite was Madhouse about the modifieds at Bowman Gray about 7 years ago. Regardless of how much is staged it still provides insight into the personnel side of the sport. I will take these any day over ridiculous shows like the bachelor and big brother.

    If it sells 3 or 4 more tickets at a few race tracks, I welcome the idea...

    Women included:

    Ashley Busch - Kurt Busch’s wife
    Samantha Busch - Kyle Busch’s Wife
    Jordan Fish - Denny Hamlin’s Girl friend
    Whitney Dillon - Austin Dillon’s wife
    Mariel Lane - Paul Swan’s (Dillon’s crew guy) Fiancé

    ****

    Not bad on CMT if they are allowed to go through with this. Samantha, Ashley, and Jordan are all connected to big names. On other Athlete wives shows the women are either divorced or not married to anyone of note.

    If certain nascar fans would like to see more about the drivers personal lives, this could be used to satiate them and thus keep the special interest interviews and “family vision” from popping up on race day.

    From a marketing stand point this could be a win win.

    I see and I agree.
    I don’t think this will interest the average fan.

    This is not targeting the average fan.

    Or really fans in general.

    Its about finding new fans.

    So since this board is full of who the target market isn’t, the commentary will be nothing but doom and gloom.

    Probably not. But it might interest their daughters or wives. They see Samantha and Whitney and become fans... then they beg the actual nascar fan in their life to take them to a race so they might see them. Boom. You’ve got a new fan and are selling extra tickets.
