The premiere episode of “Alaskan Women Looking for Love” aired last night, October 6, on TLC. The show follows six Alaska women to Miami Florida in search of a good man. While the first episode focused on the lives they will leave behind, it also gave us a peek into their hopes and dreams as they set off to start a new life.
In its initial airing, the show is reminiscent of “Breaking Amish”, TLC’s breakout series following Amish men and women as they break away from their secluded communities. Like “Breaking Amish”, it promises a wild time as the girls leave their secluded Alaskan homes and head out to the big wide world of Miami.
