Quints By Surprise Comes To TLC
Quints By Surprise is TLC’s newest reality series.
Quints By Surprise on TLC, features Ethan and Casey Jones of Austin, Texas and their six kids. The couple had a daughter and decided to have one more. After trouble conceiving, they used a form of artificial insemination called intrauterine insemination. This method sees sperm from the male placed directly into the reproductive tract of the female. There are no drugs involved and it is considered an “aid” to regular conception. In the case of the Jones, the “aid” led to quintuplets – four girls and boy.
The Jones’ are like a lot of American families right now. Ethan is a home builder who has seen his income decline drastically in the poor economy. The couple spent too much money on their home when they bought it, hoping they could fix it up and sell it for a profit. Now they find themselves short on money and long on bills with five new mouths to feed.
Quints By Surprise takes us into their world as this happy couple learns the hardships and joys of dealing with quintuplets. Ethan and Casey are likable and have a loving, caring relationship. They are high school sweethearts who have been married ten years and have an easy, relaxed report with each other. They try to keep a sense of humor as they struggle with money, family and the everyday things that life with quintuplets brings, but the stress is never ending.
It is too early to tell if Quints By Surprise will be a hit, but the Jones say they feel blessed to share their story with the world in hopes that they can use this show as a way to do some greater good. Only time will tell how well they deal with the long-term pressure of quintuplets and whether or not America comes along for the ride.
TLC has never shied away from shows featuring unique families. Two of its biggest hits, John and Kate Plus 8 and Little People Big World both feature families that faced different and unique challenges.
John and Kate Plus 8 ended when John and Kate got divorced.
Little People Big World will be starting its final season very soon.
This leaves TLC looking for a new “unique” family that America will take a liking to. They hope that family is the Jones’ and their Quints By Surprise.
Catch Quints By Surprise when it airs Monday nights at 10/9c on TLC.
