If you missed the premier of TLC’s new reality show Sweet 15: Quinceanera last week, have no fears — this week’s episode is going to be extra good.
The promo video for the season showed us all manner of crazy party requests from teenage girls and their moms, and tonight we see a girl who wants to pose with baby TIGERS ahead of her big day.
The Quinceanera celebration is the biggest day in many Latin girls’ lives and takes place when they turn 15 in honor of them moving from childhood to adulthood.
Oftentimes it’s a case of the bigger and brasher the better, with families pulling out all the stops to make theirs the best Quinceanera celebration ever.
Tonight teenager Lizi has always wanted to have a photoshoot with baby tigers for her big day, and that’s where Miami’s family-run Bella Quinces shop steps in.
Owner Alexis Fernandez manages to track down not one but two tiger cubs named after the Flinstones characters Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm from a nearby wildlife preserve — where they are being cared for after being abandoned by their mom.
Lizi is told how to hold the baby tigers to keep them and her safe, before the photoshoot begins.
Watch the clip to see the results.
Also on tonight’s Sweet 15: Quinceanera on TLC, problems are encountered when one family want to have their party on a ‘winter wonderland’ theme.
Sweet 15: Quinceanera airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on TLC.
