Fruit Basket King co-owners who moonlight as figure skating coaches appear in new reality series.
- December 7, 2012
When it comes to reality television, New Jersey is well-known for the Jersey Shore crew, outrageous hair stylists and outspoken housewives.
But starting next week, the Garden State's image really starts to slip thanks to TLC's new series, Jersey on Ice.
The reality show hones in on the cut-throat world of competitive figure skating, where young women need to have grace, athleticism and thick skin.
The latter is due to tough coaches the likes of Deana Sroka and her sister Andrea who, according to TLC, believe another term for second place is first loser.
If Deana and Andrea look familiar, that's because they are local business owners of Caldwell's Fruit Basket King.
Chances are you have been on "the set" as well. Jersey on Ice is filmed at Floyd Hall Arena on the campus of Montclair State University in Little Falls.
Jersey on Ice premieres Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 10 p.m. EST.
