Tough Love is back! Matchmaking experts and mother-son duo, Steve and JoAnn Ward, are heading to Miami to assist eight unlucky in love single ladies in finding a man!

Over the course of 10-weeks the ladies will be put through rigorous training as part of Steve’s infamous “boot camp,” which includes intense group therapy sessions to figure out why they are still single and practice dates with eligible bachelors.

The ladies will live together in a house (where the drama is sure to get as hot as the Miami sun) and attend Dating 101. Some will graduate and some will have a difficult time breaking their old habits, but Steve promises if they follow his rules they’ll be ready to fall in love!

Tough Love:Miami premiers on VH1, Sunday, October 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. A one-hour docu-special about Steve and JoAnn Ward: “Tough Love: The Wards Get Real” will air Sunday, October 9 at 9 PM ET/PT
