" Groomer Has It" is BACK!!!

I’m so excited that finally, after so much expectations, Animal Planet announced that “GROOMER HAS IT Season 2” is going to premier on Saturday, April 11th. When, again, we are going to watch 12 new groomers from around the country fighting to find out who’s clipper will still be running and who is going to get “shaved out” from the show every week. 

My secret informers have told me that they are going to be some funny new challenges, and drama is not going to be absent…

I have to say that watching the preview teaser it brought back lots of memories, and for a minute, I could feel the pain of the anticipation that the whole new Groomer Has It gang must be feeling right now. By this time last year I was about to explode!!!

I was surprised to see a few familiar faces, so I know whom I’ll be ruling for. Not that I’m going to make it public, since I’m planning to have a very active blog, maybe even a video blog. 

Since I mention familiar faces, Jai Rodriguez is again the leading men trying to keep those very opinionated Judges on their chairs. By the way, Jai looks quite buff on the promo picture, I guess with the longing of his music career he has hit the gym, Way to go Jai!!!

Stay tune not only to Animal Planet, but to my blog, where I’m going to be sharing not only my point of view, but commenting on the e-mails that I’m sure I’ll be receiving a soon the show hits the air.
