Breaking Amish is back for a new season, and Thursday night, the TLC reality series introduced us to four new cast members looking to find their place in the world.
On Breaking Amish Season 3 Episode 1, we met the following:
- Matthias, a Bulgarian man who was adopted into an Amish family.
- Bates, who wants to pursue a career his community won't allow.
- Miriam, shunned when she announced a pregnancy out of wedlock.
- Barbie, a preacher’s daughter from a strict Kentucky community.
- Vonda, who lives at home with her parents and works two jobs.
For Matthias and Bates, Breaking Amish is all about chasing their artistic dreams of mainstream acting and country music. They do seem to have talent.
Vonda and Barbie are less connected to their communities when we first meet them. Vonda works at a hotel and goes to the tanning bed on the sly.
