    The first epidsode was the best by far this season.. Big Juicy was so natural and you can tell she has a heart of gold.. would love to see her on TV with Princess the Manny!!! The other family couldn’t shine her shoes and had no class and came off as a bunch of phonies and hipocrites…. ABC you need to sign up Big Juicy with a show, I know the ratings would be off the charts…. We want more Big Juicy!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don’t cancel the show. It’s classic. The celebrity ones aren’t as interesting as the regular ones.
    I watch every season. The Envy/louden was shocking. The Avery/Martin was the most shocking. Kuncaitis/Zdazinsky the premier was the funniest and most emotional.
    I thought the Zusin finale was a weak finale. Should of made the louden family the finale
    Looking forward to celebrity wife swap to come back

    I just love Wife Swap and I sure hope it is not canceled. I think the format is a good test of different lifestyles in peoples lives and I have been watching from the start and in my opinion I just loved the Season Premier of Season 7. I just love Big Juicy and her fun loving personality that she brought such great enjoyment to the show. She was the only one that was really down to earth and understanding towards a lot of situations that she was put in. Of course, we cannot forget about Princess the manny, he puts smiles on our faces and seems to be a blast to be around.

    I have learned by the show and please don’t cancel, but if you do please consider a show with Big Juicy and Princess. I would love to see a show with the two of them. To have a best friend like that, a husband that gives you a desirable lifestyle and a beautiful son is Priceless!

    This show shouldn’t even be back and ABC better come to their senses and cancel this crap at once. Once Wife Swap is cancelled for good, it’ll never come back ever again.
