FOX Broadcasting Company: The Swan

Have you seen this show on Fox? The latest in reality TV. The premise is a bunch of hound dogs go under the knife and come out of it looking like plastic barbie dolls and cross dressing men. The thing is some of the women are downright homely, while others just look kind of average. They undergo massive surgery, and after three months of healing, dieting, and starvation, they compete in a beauty pageant that will determine which one looks the most like Cher.

What would be fun, and would mix it up a little, is if they replaced these women with some men with wigs. It is doubtful that people would be able to tell the difference.

The amount of trauma they put themselves through is unlikely to cure their problems. At least they have three months of free therapy to go along with the beating they take, which is probably the best thing about the show. Let's be honest. These chicks have bigger issues than being fat and ugly. They have self esteem problems that surgery won't fix. Why else would they nearly kill themselves? Maybe the same reason anyone does reality TV.

Maybe they think being famous will make them happy.

These people need to meet Jesus. He likes you just like you are, and can give you a makeover from the inside that everyone will notice. And thankfully, you won't look like you're made out of plastic when it's over.
