Finding true love is big business in Hollywood. The country guys, I was more familiar with those types of people. I definitely felt more comfortable in those situations. Yet what sets this Alabama-based show apart from the many, many other playing cupid-related reality shows is, according to Grissom, the deeper level of substance. It really has a lot more to it than that. And although the University of Alabama junior is naturally more at ease around down home boys who drive a pick-up and hunt on the weekends, she is confident that a romance with a sophisticated urban dweller is definitely do-able. There are no real absolute differences between the North and the South, the city and the country. I was more intrigued just to see the differences and curious to see it.
Tribble: Take Two
By Kellie Chudzinski For Dailymail. He starred alongside Reese Witherspoon in on of the most beloved romantic comedies of the early s. The year-old told ET on Wednesday that he is ready for to reprise his role but it’s really up to Reese – hot off Big Little Lies 2 – to make it happen. I spoke to him about it a couple of times recently.
Who knows? Hopefully this is one of them.
Just go watch the show and come back later. over the weekend, and I have to say I was pretty delighted by this series overall. Devin is too young, and one of the things Sweet Home Alabama had going for it was that the.
Last season, Tribble was a contestant vying for the heart of Southern belle Devin Grissom. He made it to the final two, but in the end she picked the country boy, Adam Moyer, over Tribble, the Clemson quarterback and Atlanta bartender. In the end she said I was a great guy, but … it was a complete shock. His mother, Diane, a former Spanish teacher at Mountain Brook Junior High, said Tribble was skeptical it might be like some of the other reality shows out there. It really has been just a great experience.
After dodging phone calls from the show for several days, Tribble decided to join the 20 contestants for season one. I will say I met Devin and these girls, and I enjoyed them all immensely. They are all lovely girls. The taping of each season took about one month. During those times, Diane and Herb had little contact with their son. The taping for season two is complete, and Nov. It debuted Oct. Thursdays on CMT. The women stayed at the same Fairhope home Tribble and the other contestants stayed in during season one, and he was in a house by himself.
Josh Lucas guns for a sequel to Sweet Home Alabama: ‘I’m up for it’
I’ve known people who will tell you, and not because you asked, that they do not like and do not care about country music. Too bad for them, and not just because Brad Paisley’s latest album, the helpfully titled This Is Country Music , is the shit! These people are also unaware that Country Music Television, the Red States’ answer to MTV, has produced some real hairy-eyeball television, especially since it became the property of Viacom’s MTV Networks in and started chasing the reality-show audience.
I can’t say that I’ve ever seen any series on CMT that I would characterize as “good”, but there have been some amazing contributions to that special category of television that you might stumble across while sitting at home lonely and half-drunk late at night or on a weekend morning, shows to which the only proper response is, as Bob Dylan once put it, to sit there and stare. Where else where you going to see people celebrate their nuptials by presiding over a mud-wrestling tournament in a show called My Big Redneck Wedding?
Or Kinky Friedman’s presidential aspirations given the documentary series treatment, in a show that I’m not sure made it past its first episode, before the network sobered up and realized who it was in bed with.

SWEET HOME ALABAMA SEASON 1
There were lots of major announcements at DC FanDome Check out everything you missed in our news roundup. Read more. Title: Sweet Home Alabama —
CMT’s highest rated series of , “Sweet Home Alabama,” returns this will also feature an update from first season star Devin Grissom and.
This month I had occasion to spend 10 days in rural Alabama, on a lake serving as a weekend redoubt for the swells of Birmingham to the north and Atlanta to the northeast. Not far away, the only grocery store in town carried farro, interesting cheeses and a line of artisanal pickles from a fashionable Brooklyn purveyor that I am unable to find at my own neighborhood supermarket in that very borough.
Evidence of blue-state urbanity abounds, in fact, in the new New South, but you will find virtually none of it evoked on television depicting life anywhere downward of Virginia. Beyond the hair and sundresses is an ace shot, a master of the lasso and an individual whose chief priority on a Saturday in the fall is catching every game of the Southeastern Conference.
The city boys are caricatured just as absurdly, with one, an employee of the Creative Artists Agency, leaving the show of his own volition because he cannot handle the heat. His departure seemed assured, however, the moment we learned that he spoke French. The series offers little hope of cultural bipartisanship, as Devin has already made clear her allegiance to the kind of amorphous down-home values she finds incompatible with Ferrari driving and careers in finance. By the end of the first episode last week, she had shown a distinct preference for a horse whisperer from Franklin, Tenn.
Where was the respect for the dead? A lot of what happens initially involves the question of whether a newcomer will be allowed to join. This requires you to ignore that a country club founded in the s and open to the presence of reality-television cameras is likely to have a membership policy that would admit Mr.
An all-American sweetheart, Devin, is looking for love. She’ll date city guys and country fellas in this dating reality series. Ten “city slickers” and 10 “country” guys are vying for the affections of Devin Grissom, a sweet Southern girl from Alabama. Lightning fills the sky and tension mounts in a house full of 16 potential suitors. The romance heats up as the private dates begin.
I can’t say that I’ve ever seen any series on CMT that I would cities and given the chance to compete for the fair hand of Devin Grissom, a pretty, have to figure heavily in any decent Sweet Home Alabama drinking game.
It’s a reality TV show with an emphasis on matchmaking, like The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but with a special twist that makes it unique: it’s a battle between the city and the country. In the first season, young Southern belle Devin Grissom meets twenty potential suitors. Ten are traditional Southern gentlemen and ten are city slickers, but all have come to win the lady’s heart. As she gets to know each of them, she must decide which of the several suitors to send off the show each week.
All the men live together in one house, so tensions are high as they all compete for attention in group activities and individual dates. The woman and her suitors spend time both in the country and the city, giving every one of them a chance to show her what they can do best in their natural habitat. For the second season of the show, which aired in the fall of , the same format was kept, except this time the tables were turned – rejected country bachelor Tribble Reese from the first season became the center of attention, and this time he had to choose from among ten country girls and ten city girls.
Similarly, the third season, which aired in the spring of , featured season two favorite Paige Duke as the lucky Southern bachelorette. Out of all the seasons so far, season three is the only one that has yielded a longer relationship. The couples from the first two seasons split very shortly after the show ended. When the third season’s finale aired, Paige and her final choice Jeremiah had just celebrated their 3-month anniversary and were still going strong. Kelsey goes on her two final romantic dates and meets close family members from each of the mens’ lives.
Kelsey makes her choice in the most emotional night yet. Kelsey enjoys a romantic date in the boxcar of a freight train as it rolls through the countryside.
Sweet Home Alabama: Southern Comfort
Do you guys remember Tripp Davis? Our kinda man. It took a few hours of staring to figure it out but I finally saw that it was just a weird camera trick part pose, part flowy white shirt they stuck him in and word is Tripp has been a pretty loyal reader of Going Concern since. Yay kismet and forgiveness! So when he recently got in touch to tell us about his latest adventure, we absolutely had to share it with you all.
With Alexandra Agro, Devin Grissom, Jacqueline Honulik, Michael Dean. Hot country chick dates a bunch of dudes.
OK, here we go. I watched the finale of Sweet Home Alabama over the weekend, and I have to say I was pretty delighted by this series overall. I was really impressed with how Devin carried herself the whole time, and the low-key dates or, as some people might say, low-budget gave the relationships she formed a much more authentic feel. By the final episode, Devin had narrowed her options down to two men, both country boys.
Adam was a salt-of-the-earth type, very sweet, laid back, and a typical Southern gentleman. He was country country. The guy looks like a model, was the quarterback for a big college football team, and said and did all the right things. He seemed too good to be true, but he never gave Devin a reason to think he was there for The Wrong Reasons. And Devin really seemed to have a great connection with both guys.
Especially when Adam clammed up and got all nervous and awkward on his last date with Devin. And I have no idea if a young, ambitious girl like Devin can make it work with a professional horse-whisperer. But I think she chose well. Toward the end of the episode, I almost had a fit when Adam went shopping for a beautiful diamond ring.
