The five Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs) to star in Shine Australia’s 10-part reality series WAG Nation have been announced.    

The announcement:

April 4, 2011 –

FOXTEL announced today the five “Wives and Girlfriends” who will star in FOX8’s highly anticipated new reality series, WAG Nation.

With production on the locally-made series kicking off last week, FOXTEL has confirmed the five WAGS are: shoe designer Terry Biviano, fiancée of NRL Sydney Roosters player Anthony Minicello; event planner Lynette Bolton, wife of AFL Sydney Swans player Jude Bolton; fashion boutique owner Jackie Spong, fiancée of AFL Carlton Blues player Jarrad Waite; promotions manager Jana Peterson, long-term girlfriend of NRL Cronulla Sharks player John Williams; and flight attendant Chantelle Raleigh, girlfriend of NBL Gold Coast Blaze player Adam Gibson.

Produced by Shine Australia for FOXTEL, WAG Nation is a 10-part reality series that will follow the lives of these five independent, professional women who also happen to be partnered with some of Australia’s biggest sporting stars.

From the highs and lows of supporting a professional sporting career and the daily pressures of maintaining a successful relationship, to the stress of managing their own careers, not to mention the demands of a hectic social life – the cameras will be there to capture it all.

“We all know Australians are sports mad, but it seems they’re just as ‘WAG’ crazy! That’s why WAG Nation is so exciting for us at FOX8,” said Duane Hatherly, Group Channel Manager FOX8, ARENA & Bio.

“Our viewers will get a glimpse into the glamorous and not so glamorous parts of these women’s very public lives, as well as a taste for the complex social order that rules partners, friends and career in the world of sporting wives and girlfriends,” he said.

WAG Nation will air exclusively on FOX8 in the second half of 2011.
