Just plain sad
23 September 2007 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

In this show, we get to watch a bunch of extremely insecure people getting plastic surgery that will supposedly make them look more beautiful. Afterwards, they are given a haircut, shown how to dress etc, etc. Finally, they go back home after being away for like 2-6 months and are presented to their friends and family who never fail to applaud, cry and tell them how beautiful they are. I don't get it. I really don't get it. Is this what entertainment is supposed to be about? The only thing this show has ever provided me with is an intense feeling of sadness. It makes me feel sick of the world we live in. In this world people have to get a facelift, breast implants, or a tummy tuck in order to feel beautiful. The people that win these makeovers are always going on about how thankful they are to their relatives for giving them "the best gift ever", a ticket to this show, that is. I, on the other hand, would be extremely hurt and insulted if my boyfriend entered me into Extreme Makeover. It is your family and loved ones you're supposed to turn to in order to hear how nice you look, even if that isn't true. Also, I've seen that others consider that to review this show means to tell people who don't like it that we're all wrong and mean, as it's a wonderful experience for those who were not born beautiful. My point is this: As long as shows like this exist, those people will go right on thinking they are ugly when they aren't. And you know why? Because shows like this promote a Barbie- doll idea of beauty, telling you that if you're not a size D with a perfectly constructed nose you're ugly. Right. So, you can have your beautiful experience. Just please please please understand that you getting plastic surgery will probably make another girl who is a size A feel ugly, even if she isn't. Good job. I guess somebody could like this show in a sadistic kind of way. I thankfully don't.
