Animal Planet kicks off the second season

The claws are out, and the catty comments and tearful hissy fits are back as Animal Planet kicks off the second season of its hot reality, competition series Groomer Has It, hosted by Emmy award-winner, Jai Rodriguez (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy).

Groomer Has It sniffs out 12 of America’s most passionate and skilled dog groomers to compete against each other in a test of desire, creativity and affinity for animals as they shave, shear and shampoo their way through a series of challenges that will crown only one “Groomer of the Year.”

Premiering April 11 at 9PM e/p, the contestants will be put to the test to see who can turn the dirtiest dog into a glamorous, pampered pup. These talented and quirky groomers live together in a swanky Los Angeles loft, aka “The Doghouse,” which can sometimes be too close for comfort. During each grooming challenge, the contestants work shoulder to shoulder and, sometimes as teams, tasked with everything from creating signature looks for a “bridal and groom party” in the show’s first-ever doggie wedding to using their canine-grooming skills on pot-belly pigs.

After each challenge, Jai consults with our outspoken panel of judges including esteemed veterinarian Dr. Karen Halligan, champion dog handler Xavier Santiago and leading U.S. grooming expert Joey Villani as they decide which contestant does not make the cut.

The grand-prize winner will receive his or her very own state of the art mobile grooming salon from Wag’n Tails Mobile Grooming, a brand-new Subaru Forester, a cash prize of $50,000 and the prestigious title of “Groomer of the Year.” With a prize package totaling approximately $145,000, groomers fight for their right to jump start their careers and change their lives. Each of these groomers thinks he or she has what it takes to be top dog in this competition, but in reality, only one … Groomer Has It.
