WAG Nation premieres on Foxtel April 18

The much talked about new reality TV series called WAG Nation will premiere on Foxtel on Wednesday, April 18 at 9.30pm, exclusive to the Arena channel.

The quintet of gorgeous girls are the wives and girlfriends of some of Australia’s biggest sporting stars.

The ‘WAGs’ (a term coined in the UK to describe the wives and girlfriends of football players like David Beckham; indeed, Victoria Beckham would be deemed the honorary, involuntary founder of the club) include:

- shoe designer Terry Biviano, wife of NRL Sydney Roosters player Anthony Minichiello

- event planner Lynette Bolton, wife of AFL Sydney Swans player Jude Bolton

- promotions manager Jana Peterson, long-term girlfriend of NRL Cronulla Sharks player John Williams

- fashion boutique owner Jackie Spong, wife of AFL Carlton Blues player Jarrad Waite

- and model/flight attendant Chantelle Raleigh, then girlfriend of NBL Gold Coast Blaze player Adam Gibson.

The 10-part series will take a voyeuristic look into the lives of these five women as they juggle life and love - plus a jam-packed social calendar (think launch events, fund-raising galas, movie premieres, front row seats at Fashion Week and of course, sporting sidelines).

Expect the five WAGS to set about living up to - and then attempting to debunk - the stereotypical view of who and what a WAG is.

WAG Nation is a new format, created and produced by Shine Australia for Foxtel.

The series will air exclusively on Arena, premiering Wednesday, April 18 at 9.30pm.
