'Total Bellas' season 4: Blind dates, a new star, family drama and more are what you can look out for in episode 2
There's a lot going on with Nikki and Brie — careers, love lives, and insecurities — but one thing is for certain, there's no shortage of drama
'Total Bellas' season four premiere left us reeling in shock last week. Nikki Bella's struggle to move on from her turbulent relationship with WWE superstar John Cena and find her identity as a single woman, Brie Bella's baby-making confusion and the twins' start of the 'Evolution' journey, the first episode wasn't just entertaining, it was super relatable as well.
With the next episode lined up to come out this week, here's everything you can expect to see:
Nikki's awkward blind date
After Nikki split up with Cena last year, everyone around her was worried about her, understandably. Her family decides to set her up with someone they think she will like, but it backfires horribly. The twins decide to go to New York City together to start their 'Evolution' storyline. They meet up with mom Kathy Colace and her husband, former WWE wrestler, John "Johnny Ace" Laurinaitis as well as their brother J.J. Garcia over dinner and things escalate quickly. The family sets her up with a model named Andre without her knowledge and Nikki being Nikki, does not take it down sitting. She tells her family exactly how upset she is and family time quickly turns super awkward for the Bellas.

The countdown begins! Next Sunday is the season premiere of @totalbellas 👯♀️ Welcome my sister @mayalaurinaitis to the new season. It’ll be fun to watch her as she aspires to model (omg this photo!) and have hopes to be a WWE Superstar one day. (If @mrjohnlaurinaitis let’s her lol) 📸 @amaes_photography #totalbellas #bellafam #bellaarmy #maya #seasonpremiere #thissunday
Maya Laurinaitis makes her 'Total Bellas' debut in the upcoming episode. She caused quite a stir ahead of the premiere after Nikki announced her being cast in the reality show. Netizens thought that the Bella twins were turning into the Kardashians and that Maya did not deserve the exposure she would get from being on 'Total Bellas'. She's John and Kathy's daughter and the twins' stepsister. In the upcoming episode, the twins take their baby sister under their wing and they have a photoshoot for Birdiebee. However, dad Johnny Ace is not too happy about it.
Brie wants to get a boob job
Becoming a mom has taken a toll on Brie's body and she wants to try and give her twins some extra push. The mother-of-one feels self-conscious getting back in the ring with much younger women with more toned bodies and consults a plastic surgeon to whip her body back into shape. She walks around the house wearing chicken cutlet implants shocking husband Daniel Bryan into saying, "What the heck is that on your chest? Did you strap some pillows in there or what?" He's clearly not a fan of Brie getting plastic surgery but Brie seems pretty convinced about what she wants.
Brie plays matchmaker
Apart from getting set up with Andre, we know that Nikki goes on dates with 'Bachelorette' star Peter Kraus as well as 'Dancing With the Stars' alum Artem Chigvintsev. While we know for certain that Peter Kraus doesn't appear in the next episode, however, the episode definitely sets the mood for her date with Artem. Brie had expressed her intentions of setting Nikki up on dates in the last episode and she takes it one step forward with Kraus.
There's a lot going on with Nikki and Brie — careers, love lives, and insecurities — but one thing is for certain, there's no shortage of drama.
