RAISING SEXTUPLETS (Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT)
On July 22, Jenny, Bryan and the sextuplets are finally moving from Arizona to their new home in Destin, Florida. But the day before they set out, the whole family gets sick. Then, things get worse when Bryan and Jenny have a big argument about couches. The next morning, the 11-member caravan heads out. But as soon as they set out on the road, Jenny’s vehicle starts sputtering and panic sets in – she put regular gas into a diesel engine! Eventually, after a tow truck arrives, the caravan continues and grows to 14 people, after Jenny’s family joins in Phoenix. The all-American road trip – filled with roadside attractions and family squabbles – is in full swing. Five days and six states later, after an exhausting journey, they arrive in Florida and Jenny is about to see her new home for the very first time. But Bryan can’t find the keys and they must break into the house! The family sticks around to help with the unpacking but Bryan grows impatient with the progress, which only leads to more arguments. Finally, and inevitably, it’s time to say goodbye with a series of emotional farewells. There is still unpacking left to do, and the house is in chaotic disarray with much work that needs to be done on it. But Jenny and Bryan have finally arrived at the end of their long journey – and are now more than ready to embrace their new life.
Then on July 29, Jenny’s mom says a heartbreaking goodbye after helping Jenny and Bryan through the first 10 days of settling into their new Florida home. Now, the Masches are truly on their own. Jenny is surprised to find out she can’t start work at the hospital until her paperwork comes through, and with Bryan’s business still not up and running yet, they find themselves with no income and a pile of bills. They love their new home and newfound independence, but the peace and quiet doesn’t last long. Between household mechanical problems that Bryan can’t fix and early wake-up calls from the sextuplets, chaos resumes as normal. With all the disorder, Jenny and Bryan realize it’s high time for a tune-up with their marriage counselor, Dr. Debra Mandel. For the first time, Bryan admits he blames Jenny for choosing the fertility treatment that led to the six babies and Jenny apologizes for thwarting Bryan’s political ambitions. In the end, Dr. Debra is able to provide them with some practical tips on de-escalating to restore harmony. After all the stress of these first weeks on their own, the Masche family heads to the beach to enjoy what they came for: the Florida sun and surf! Jenny and Bryan are determined to fully live the new life they imagined for themselves, but it will take hard work to make their marriage thrive and become the kind of parents they aspire to be.
