In Tribal Wives, six women come to grips with new lifestyles, families,and communities in some of the world's most remote tribes to find out whether 'West is best.' The women are expected to spend up to a month living with their new families, fully immersing themselves into their new culture. Each woman must work, eat, and sleep exactly as the other tribal women in order to experience what it is really like to live as a member of their community. It is a very personal journey as each of the women battle to overcome their own personal demons -- from a former alcoholic, to a woman struggling to balance work and life. Crossing continents to some of the most remote places in the world, viewers follow the progress of each tribal wife to see if she is accepted by the community. Will she rise to the challenges thrown at her -- or will she simply miss her Western lifestyle too much?
