RATS, PIGS, MUSCLES AND A MERMAN TO MAKE A SPLASH ON TLC’S SECOND SEASON OF ‘MY CRAZY OBSESSION’
–Season two premieres on Wednesday, April 3 at 10 PM ET/PT –
(New York, NY) – Where can you find 19 pet rats that are treated like children, a grandmother with over 6,000 pig items, a 5 year-old who can lift more than double her body weight and a man who gives mermaid Ariel a run for her money? Season two of TLC’s hit series MY CRAZY OBSESSION, premiering Wednesday, April 3 at 10 PM ET/PT.
TLC’s MY CRAZY OBSESSION pulls back the curtains to reveal some of the nation’s most extreme and unique obsessions. Its first season, led by Pat and Joe Prosey’s massive Cabbage Patch Kid collection, was viewed by an average of 1.1M P2+ viewers.
The second season of this double-stacked, eight-part series will continue to take viewers behind the scenes of homes that are dedicated entirely to the owners’ infatuation with various objects, people or lifestyles. For some, this is the first time cameras have been allowed to document their secret world of unbelievable, one-of-a-kind treasures and sometimes bizarre, never-before-seen habits and rituals. The show will also reveal the time, money and effort required to fulfill and maintain these uncommon passions, while also highlighting how these obsessors became obsessed in the first place.
Other featured obsessions this season: a young woman obsessed with taking photos with celebrities, a woman obsessed with Raggedy Ann, a woman obsessed with Barbies and a man obsessed with Barbara Eden. The season culminates with troll, taxidermy, dumpster diving and bug eating obsessions.
MY CRAZY OBSESSION is produced for TLC by Sharp Entertainment LLC.
