TLC’S “RANDY TO THE RESCUE” RETURNS FRIDAY, MAY 31 AT 9PM ET/PT
Oklahoma City Thunder Cheerleader Kelsey Williams featured in new season
TLC hits the road again with a new season of RANDY TO THE RESCUE premiering Friday, May 31 at 9pm ET/PT. Season one premiere episodes averaged 1.4M P2+ viewers.
In each episode of RANDY TO THE RESCUE, bridal guru Randy Fenoli makes brides’ fantasies come true as he goes off the runway and behind the wheel of a big rig – to bring his favorite gowns, his unsurpassed dress knowledge, and his signature “head-to-hem” styling approach to brides around the country. As Randy visits different cities, he creates the ultimate trunk shows and dishes out his top tips on bridal style, do’s and don’ts, and the hottest trends for the season. From dresses and accessories to makeup and hair, he offers a complete blueprint from head-to-hem for lucky brides-to-be so they can replicate the exact look on their big day.
Season two features Oklahoma City Thunder Cheerleader Kelsey Williams, who has recently been in the news due to criticism over her weight. Randy tries to help Kelsey find a wedding dress that will work for her carnival themed reception, while incorporating her favorite “color” leopard. Other brides this season include a bridal magazine publisher who proves to be quite a challenge for Randy as she’s tough, picky, and has seen everything in the industry, a hippy bride who would rather walk down the aisle nude than wear a wedding dress, and a bride who takes her father’s opinion very seriously, with an emotional appointment that reflects how close they are after she almost loses him to an illness.
Inside each space created by The Wedding Guys, Randy has a team of consultants from local bridal salons in each city, working various fitting stations, to help each bride find the perfect dress.
In season one, Randy visited Dallas, San Diego, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Nashville, Cincinnati, Boston, and Minneapolis. Season two features 10 all-new cities: Denver, Seattle, Oklahoma City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Miami, Savannah, D.C., and Chicago. The new season also features new hair and makeup experts – hair stylist Lindsay Yamashita and makeup artist Raychel Wade.
RANDY TO THE RESCUE is produced by Half Yard Productions for TLC.
