ABC’S BOUNCING BUNDLE OF JOY RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON OF HILARITY
WHEN “BET ON YOUR BABY” PREMIERES SATURDAY, MAY 31
Melissa Peterman, Star of ABC Family’s Hit Series “Baby Daddy,” Hosts
The babies are back and cuter than ever! Melissa Peterman (ABC Family’s “Baby Daddy”) hosts the game show that challenges parents to try to predict their child’s next move in an effort to win money for their child’s future education. ABC has ordered eight episodes for the new season, with a premiere date of SATURDAY, MAY 31 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television network.
In the second season premiere, “201,” we meet 3-year old Nyla and her parents Calee and Arthur King who hope she’ll pick up the phone within 6 rings to win $5,000 in the game “Pickup Line.” The Hahn Triplets—Jacob, Tyler and Audrey–play “TP Takeoff.” Can they empty 3 rolls of toilet paper within 90 seconds? Four-year-old Rozlynn loves playing “Dress Up” with her mom Wanda Cohill while Grandma Tajee wagers on which costume her granddaughter will select. And 4-year-old A.J. Rodriguez plays “Peanut Putter,” a mini-golf game, with his dad Lupe, while mom Angela guesses how many holes in one he’ll land in the oversized cup. All the parents return for a high-stakes game of “Baby Talk,” in which they guess the mystery word Melissa and their children are describing. One lucky family moves on to try to break the piggy bank and win a $50,000 college fund.
Melissa Peterman also stars as Bonnie Wheeler in ABC Family’s hit comedy, “Baby Daddy,” which airs Wednesdays (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET) through June 18 on ABC Family.
