Rebel Wilson’s dog grooming show Pooch Perfect arrives in America from Australia … with RHOBH’s Lisa Vanderpump acclaimed as celebrity judge
Rebel Wilson’s Australian show Pooch Perfect has found its way onto the American television channel at TBEN.
The 40-year-old, from Sydney, hosted the first season of the Seven Network dog grooming competition in her home country.
However, last October, it emerged that the Seven were not reprising the series for the second season, which is now arriving in the United States, People reports.

Famous Rebel judges will be Lisa Vanderpump, along with a veterinarian called Callie Harris and dog groomer Jorge Bendersky.
Jorge charges at least $ 300 an hour from a customer list that includes Gisele Bundchen, Diddy and Ralph Lauren, he told Business Insider last year.
Meanwhile, Lisa was a true Beverly Hills housewife before quitting amid a feud with her co-stars involving her Vanderpump Dogs foundation.
The second season of Pooch Perfect, whose title is a pun on the Rebel Pitch Perfect film, will feature eight episodes with 10 contestants according to a press release.

The first season had the same number of episodes and contenders, but with canine stylists Amber Lewin and Colin Taylor as judges.
All applicants for the program are expected to be professional groomers and they will have their assistants on hand to assist them.
During the 2021 Upfronts for the Seven network last October, it emerged that Pooch Perfect was not on their roster for this year.
Meanwhile, ratings were theorized to be the problem, as the show lost almost half of its audience in the first season.

The first season was won by a pet salon owner called Wendy and her daughter Nikki who received a cash prize of $ 100,000.
While earnings for the US version of the show have yet to be announced, the names of some challenges have been thrown out – Ultimutt Challenge and Immunity Puppertunity.
The press release says the contestants “will compete in epic grooming trans-fur-mations and showcase their incredible creations on the illustrious ‘dogwalk’.
Rebel posted an Instagram video announcing their big news on Wednesday and said the show was ‘going to be paged.’
