Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition 17

Five new hip hop couples are taking a step back from the game on an all-new season of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition.

These stars have the awards, the view counts, the platinum records and the love of millions of fans, but they can't seem to secure a relationship with the person who matters most.

The celeb couples this season are:

Phaedra (The Real Housewives of Atlanta) and Medina (rapper and actor)
Willie and Shanda (Love and Hip Hop Hollywood)
Tahiry (Love and Hip Hop New York) and Vado (rapper)
Kurupt (rapper) and Toni (model)
Hazel-E (Love and Hip Hop Hollywood) and De'von (model)

Dr. Ish's unique sensibilities will be doled in a no B.S. tough love fashion in order to pull these celebrities out of the clouds and put them back into reality.

And don't forget Judge Lynn Toler, who brings her own style to the drills, which aim to test the boot campers and answer: which couple makes beautiful music together, and who should go solo?

In the Season 17 premiere, "Electing to Face the Music": Five hip hop couples enter Boot Camp and expose shocking secrets.

Dr. Ish and Judge Toler push the boot campers to face their biggest issues in a heated debate that turns left.

An explosive fight erupts and flips the house upside down.

In the second episode of the weekly doule bill, "Drama Said Knock You Out": An epic rap battle exposes the couples' shocking resentment issues.

Kurupt's struggle with self-control leads to an epic fail that stuns the house and could end his relationship.

Meanwhile, Hazel-E and Tahiry face off.

Be it a pair of boots symbolising survival, a dress that's come to stand for recovery, or a uniform that reaffirms an identity, the series illuminates the lives of the wearers through stories about cherished articles of clothing.

By turns funny, tragic, poignant, and celebratory, each episode is organised by theme and features a mix of interviews from cultural figures and talented storytellers.

Animated sequences and archival footage help bring these touching yarns to life.

Thanks to some kind of error, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), an ordinary woman, enters the afterlife and is sent to the Good Place - which is definitely not where she belongs.

While hiding in plain sight from Michael (Ted Danson), the wise architect of the Good Place who is unaware that he's made a mistake, she's determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome person within.

In the Season 4 premiere, "A Girl from Arizona": With Eleanor assuming the role of the architect, the group adapts to the challenges facing them when four test subjects inhabit a new neighbourhood under their supervision.
