Call us overly sensitive, but there’s something deeply unsettling about E!’s new reality show ‘Bridalplasty.’ (I guess you could say it gets our nose out of joint?)
Maybe it’s the fact that the series features 12 brides-to-be who are all vying for a chance to win the pre-wedding plastic surgery of their dreams.
Or maybe it’s the show’s new promo (seen below), which so breezily declares that it’s “the only reality show where the winner gets cut,” as the bandaged nose of one hopeful flashes across the screen.
Or maybe it’s both.
E!’s description of ‘Bridalplasty’ reads like this:
“From muffin tops to crooked noses to flat chests, the perceived imperfections they [the 12 brides-to-be] hope to fix are extensive and dramatic. In the finale, the ‘Bridalplasty’ champion will be named and viewers will follow her journey as she prepares for her dream wedding, which includes undergoing all of the procedures on her plastic surgery “wish list,” and her fiancé’s anticipation as he waits to see her full transformation. In a moment anticipated all season long, the bride will finally walk down the aisle to reveal her new appearance to her husband-to-be. Viewers will witness his emotional and possibly shocked reaction as they stand at the altar and he lifts her veil to see her for the first time following her extreme plastic surgery. The dramatic finale marks the end of her quest for perfection and reveals if her dream wedding does in fact become a reality.”
Yes, folks – this is a TV series.
Hosted by Shanna Moakler, ‘Bridalplasty’ premieres November 28 at 9/8c on E!
What do you think? Is this taking all of the worst parts of the bridal/reality/plastic surgery craze to frightening new heights?
