A Salt Lake City man has had all 13 of his applications for the next series of reality series Wife Swap accepted, enabling each of his wives to participate in the show. “I can’t wait for the series to start,” said bigamist Sean Huggins, “Wife Swap is going to be a great challenge, even if it’s the same challenge I face every day.”

Huggins marries another two women, in case the series is extended

Getting on the show is a dream come true for the devout Mormon, who was bitterly disappointed in 1999 when his application to play Family Feud with his multiple wives was rejected. “They said we’d have an unfair advantage,” he recalled bitterly, “but I think it was just because they didn’t have enough buzzers.”

Huggins says his wives are looking forward to the show, though he acknowledged he has not got around to asking them all. “It’ll be great to experience to have a husband who can give me 100% attention,” said one women known as “Number 6”. “Even if he ignores me half the time, I’ll still be ahead.”

“Sean’s unique life experiences will really add to the show,” said executive producer Aaron Jones, “as well as cutting down on camera and travel costs.”

Huggins says he hopes his family’s participation in Wife Swap will educate the public about bigamy. "The more people who realise bigamy is normal, healthy way to live, the greater my pool of potential future wives," Huggins said.

The father of 27 explained that multiple wives is not all easy going. “You think your mother-in-law’s difficult … some of mine are the pits. Plus hardly a week goes by without me forgetting a birthday, or an anniversary, or a wedding. It’s not easy, you know. And don’t even get me started on Mother’s Day.”

Wife Swap’s going to be a really positive experience after a difficult year,” Huggins said. “The last 12 months has been hell. Four divorces really takes it out of you.”
