FOX plans plastic surgery show.
And they just keep coming: Next up from FOX is The Swan, in which 18 women “will get plastic surgery as part of their transformations, but the finalists won’t be able to see their new and improved faces until after they’ve participated in the finale, a two-hour beauty pageant.” They’ll also “be put through rigorous emotional and physical reconditioning sessions as part of a three-month effort to transform ‘ugly ducklings’ into ‘swans,’” according to The Hollywood Reporter. The nine-episode show debuts March 29 at 9 p.m.
