Introducing The Big D Divorced Couple Casey and Brooks
They said "I do" once before, but what are the chances divorced couples will fall in love again on The Big D? Here's everything to know about Casey and Brooks.
The Big D takes divorced couples and puts them in a tropical villa where they will pursue a second chance at love by dating the other divorcees in the house. One of the ex-couples, Casey and Brooks, broke down the end of their marriage and what they want from their time on the show in a video introduction.
Hosted by married couple JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers, the show premieres on June 14 right after the Season 5 premiere of Temptation Island. Basically, there’s a lot of action in villas between the palm trees. Some of the couples are looking to rekindle what they had, while others are hoping for closure and to create new bonds and relationships. The divorcees won't face the ups and downs alone. They'll be joined by relationship expert Dr. Jada Jackson, who will be on hand to guide them through their renewed search for love. However, will her expertise be enough for this far-gone couple?

Casey Costa and Brooks Peters are from Lake Tahoe, California and have been divorced for six months after a two-year marriage. Brooks says things were good until he decided to start his own business.
“I think I brought some stress home,” he said in the video.
Casey added that she would ask him for non-monetary things and he wouldn’t do it.
“Our marriage lacked passion entirely,” she said.
Brooks has apparently been holding onto hope that they can work things out, but Casey is already putting the brakes on that idea.
“He needs to face the music and realize I’m moving on with my life and so should he,” Casey explained.
Brooks is going into the villas with his whole chest declaring his love for his ex-wife. But Casey has other plans for Brooks, in the video she says she wants him to have sex and meet someone.
The name of the game on the show is there are elimination ceremonies and a big prize of $50,000 for the couple who ends the season in a committed relationship.
Will Brooks finally move on from Casey and find love with another woman? Will Casey decide she really doesn’t want Brooks to date anyone but her? We can’t wait to find out who will end up together at the end of the show.
The Big D premieres on June 14 at 10 PM ET right after new episodes of Temptation Island as part of USA’s Wednesday night "Hump Day" programming line-up. Catch up on past episodes on Peacock.
