I may well be missing the whole point of this programme but I switched it off half way through the first episode through irritation, anger and frustration. It's quite fair enough that the aim of the programme is to transform these tomboyish girls into teenage princesses but it doesn't stop there.
The precise reason I dislike it lay in one little comment, where one of these girls was pulled up for wearing no make up, and replied that she never wore it usually. I can relate to this very much - I take care of my appearance but I don't consider make up to be an essential. As I say, I may be seeing it from the wrong angle, but I think this programme is perpetuating the idea that you have to be attractive and heavily made-up to be successful in life and I think that is the last thing they should be encouraging teenage girls to think. I know from my own teenage years that that period in your life is one where you find out who you really are, so why on earth are they trying to force them all to fit basically the same ideals? I definitely won't make a point of catching this again.
