Plot Synopsis

SWAB STORIES is a half-hour reality series that follows Jared Rosenthal and his assistant, medical technician Ana Lopez, as they drive his "Who's Your Daddy?" DNA testing truck through the five boroughs of New York City and on road trips to Chicago and Washington, DC. The people who enter the RV are from all different walks of life and step on board for all different reasons, but within minutes customers feel comfortable enough to start spilling their wildest, personal stories. Each 30-minute episode features two or three stories, including people who want to answer questions like: Who is my father? Did my father raise me or my best friend? Is this my baby? Is he my cousin? Do we have the same mother? Is my boyfriend my brother? Am I Puerto Rican? Am I Not? The RV's owner, Jared, is a rough-and-tumble triple black belt with a soft spot for his customers. Passionate about public health, Jared ditched his cushy corporate job and hit the streets to bring healthcare where it's needed most: curbside. To help him navigate his new business venture, Jared employs the help of street-savvy specialist Ana, the RV's medical technician. Known as a the "Swabinator," she's a tough cookie from the Bronx who can warm up a client, but always tells it like it is. VH1 aired a sneak-peek episode of SWAB STORIES on Monday, April 27, 2015 at 9:30pm ET/PT, two days before the show's official series premiere on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT.
On Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, VH1 premiered the season finale of SWAB STORIES. In the season ender, "Brothers from Another Mother," sperm donor children want to prove they are related, and a woman wonders if the man who raised her is her father.
