    I was SO dissapointed when I found out what this show was about. They had such an obvious chance to do something really meaningful- to showcase all that is wonderful about 18 women who don’t fit the traditional white american beauty standard. Instead they decided to be cheap and, well, Fox, and call in the plastic surgeons and girls with low self esteem to make fun of.

      “Tragic” is right. The more I think about the show, the more distasteful the premise of the show sounds to me. On the one hand, Fox Studios is forking over A LOT of money to change these women. Beyond the cosmetic surgery, there are the emotional therapy and the physical training. That kind of money is beyond these women’s means, I think. I suppose the process may open new doors for these women, too. Yet, the word “exploitation” is inescapable.
