Rage Against Suburban Zombie-ism

Well, I just received The Ugly Duckling-inspired reality tv series, on DVD box set, in the mail...yesterday! The Swan aired on FOX, of course, in 2004 and made its way onto DVD 2 years later.
While watching the tv series again, the recurring emotions that came up was titillation ;)...combined with utter SADNESS. How could so many women go through life not only "never feeling beautiful", but also let their insecurities paralyze them?
Furthermore, half of these contestants, surprisingly enough, aren't single but are in fucked up relationships. And by fucked up, I mean that they have partners who don't support them &/or have cheated on them. Wow, what a recipe for disaster!
Another ingredient that ironically contributes to their insecurities may be the end of each episode where the "winner" is announced. (The "winner" goes onto the plastic, Barbie-doll pageant set-up by the devious producers of the show!) Doesn't it say to the "loser" that they're pretty, but not pretty enough to participate in the sham of a pageant?? Sorta the same trauma that they went through while being teased as children?
Anyway, it's pretty mind-blowing what these plastic surgeons can do! And although I don't think it's for me, I'm not entirely against plastic surgery, especially in the following cases...
This show is slowly brainwashing me 'cause now I'm thinking of what surgeries I need!
