Heartthrob actor/model Antonio Sabato, Jr. Antonio and his conservative Christian fiance, Cheryl are two self-admitted clean freaks. They keep a spotless home, the cars are kept clean and shiny, and neither one will be able to sleep at night if the tea kettle is on the wrong burner. Cheryl keeps a six-page, 65-item checklist of daily duties that must be done to ensure the household is properly maintained.
After a week of fun and insight, the time spent apart for one of the couples proves to be too much and makes for an explosive reunion, on the Season Finale.
