Pioneer Man vs. Career Woman on 'Wife Swap' (VIDEO)

Pioneer Man vs. Career Woman on 'Wife Swap'The series 'Wipe Swap' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC) prides itself on throwing together families from very different backgrounds. But this trend is taken to the extreme on the latest episode, and we get to witness a huge culture clash.

The Flannagin family lives in Alabama, and reenacts the 1800s pioneer lifestyle -- down to every last detail. This includes dressing in deer skins, starting fires with flints, and living in a hand-built log cabin. They also believe in old-fashioned gender roles, with the men going out to work and the women staying at home.

Meanwhile, the Logan family is "technology crazy." Their house has seven television sets, seven game consoles, and a remote control for their swimming pool. Wife Heather is the breadwinner, leaving her husband at home to take care of the kids.

So when Heather Logan and Stephen Flannagin meet and are forced to live together, you can bet that some major sparks will fly. Heather isn't exactly pleased with living in a log cabin, or with Stephen's "traditional" attitude towards women. On the other hand, Stephen finds Ms. Logan to be bossy and domineering.

Will there be a major fight? You bet there will! And it wouldn't really be an episode of 'Wife Swap' without one.
