NJ’s son and mom in new animal grooming TV show

Remember a movie called Perfect? It starred Rebel Wilson who played Fat Amy and revolved around a college singing competition. This same Rebel Wilson now hosts a TV show called perfect doggie.

Proving that anything can be turned into reality TV, this is a dog grooming competition show. And a mother-son team from New Jersey is among its players.

Donovan Gallagher, 27, and Jayne Gallagher, 60, will appear on the show which begins Tuesday at 8 p.m. on ABC. The two live in Millstone and will represent Bree Garden State as they take on 9 other dog groomers and their assistants from across the United States. It’s a typical playoff-style show, but Donovan told, “The competition isn’t just your standard ‘take a dog and make it cute.’ Anything the audience sees is going to cut them off. the breath. “

Hmmm. What does it mean? Is America ready to see a groomer expressing his anal glands for entertainment? Are we talking about an episode of poorly groomed rescued dogs with horribly matted hair that needs to be fixed? I don’t know what’s going to be mind blowing.

His mother Jayne started the business 24 years ago and he quickly followed suit. His sister Shannon McCarthy is also part of the family business called Bubbles Away Pet Salon in Hamilton. And they must be amazingly good. Thousands of animal handlers across the country applied to take part in this show and only ten teams did so.

They can’t say if they won, but Donovan was allowed to tease that they’re on the show for “a fair amount of time.”

The winner receives $ 100,000. Good luck Gallagher!
