Once very secretive about their lives, a new generation of American Gypsies are much more keen about sharing their lives publicly. On the upcoming season premiere, for example, a young Gypsy boy attempts to make Romanichal history by becoming the first Gypsy jiu-jitsu champion.

Here's what to expect on the upcoming season from TLC:

The season also features a double wedding with two Gypsy sisters getting ready to wed their non-Gypsy fiancés, despite their mother’s objections about marrying outside the bloodline; An Irish traveller pursuing his dream of becoming America’s first Gypsy rapper; a young Gypsy couple who has found love online – and plan to meet for the very first time on their wedding day, and a young Romney teen who turns her back on tradition to follow her dreams of becoming the first Gypsy supermodel. And one of the biggest family rivalries – between the Stanleys and the Smalls – comes head to head when two Gypsy teenagers defy all odds for an attempt at a life together.

Produced by Firecracker Films, the series was a spinoff of UK-based “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and itself spawned the TLC spinoff series, “Gypsy Sisters.”

    This article must be a commercial for TLC, since it fails to critically evaluate how these TV shows have been rejected by the Romani (Gypsy) community or consider how most of the individuals featured on the show have little or no connection to the Gypsy community. Most of these folks are of mixed origins, and do not know or understand the Gypsy culture from the inside. Along with TLC, they simply put on a show in front of the cameras and give viewers what they want – a racist parade of clownish stereotypes.
