What's wrong with you people?


How else to respond to this but cringe, over and over again?

Fox Broadcasting Co. has picked up nine episodes of a makeover show with a twist: the 18 female contestants in "The Swan" will get plastic surgery as part of their transformations, but the finalists won't be able to see their new and improved faces until after they've participated in the finale, a two-hour beauty pageant.


Mike Darnell, Fox's executive vp alternative series and specials, stressed that in addition to going under the knife, the contestants will be put through rigorous emotional and physical reconditioning sessions as part of a three-month effort to transform "ugly ducklings" into "swans."

He said the drama of the show would be heightened by the women going through the "reveals" of showing off their new looks to the cameras and to their families before they can see it for themselves. The contestants will be winnowed to a final 10 by a panel of judges who will survey two women in each episode and decide which one of them has achieved "swan" status and will move on to the "Ultimate Swan Pageant," Darnell said.


That makes me want to throw up.

I'd like to see a reality show with network executives hooked up to some kind of torture device that gets worse and worse. All the while they'd have to answer the question: "Are you stimulated yet?"

How far can they go before people stop watching?

the idea behind the show is sickening, not only are they changing so called "ugly ducklings" into swans but after they are "transformed" they still are not beautiful enough to win a beauty pagent. There will only be 1 "superswan", you might be a swan but your still not pretty "enough" for FOX. What is this saying to women? Even if your perfect, you could always do a little more(liposuction, new skin, bones,teeth,body). This show is just an advertisement for plastic surgery and it makes me feel sick to my stomach.

I personaly Love the show and so do most of my friends. I think it would be a dream come true.
wanting an overhaul in plastic surgery myself, I was hoping there might be a way for me to sign up? If so where and how do I enter? Please let me know. Thank You, Angel
