Something old, something new, something borrowed, something OMFG! It was announced today that E! has ordered a new series that will cross a wedding competition with extreme plastic surgery. Way to totally degrade the sanctity of marriage and turn it into a circus sideshow act there, E!
It’s called “Bridalplasty,” a show where brides-to-be compete in wedding-themed challenges to win extensive surgical procedures. It’s like Bridezillas meets The Swan meets a whole lotta ratings and possible outrage from the world at large.
Each week, a group of women competes head-to-head in such challenges as writing wedding vows and planning honeymoons. The winner receives the chance to choose a plastic surgery procedure from her “wish list.” She’s given the procedure immediately, and results are shown at the start of the following week’s episode. One by one, the women are voted out by their competitors and, according to the shows description, “possibly walking away with nothing and losing [their] chance to be the perfect bride. (via THR)
The last bride standing will then get her “dream wedding,” along with a boatload of plastic surgery, and will then walk down the aisle only to let her soon-to-be hubby lift his blushing brides veil and reveal the hot mess that he’ll be waking up to for the next 50 years.
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,” E! said.
Predictably, the same surgeon from The Swan will be working his magic, and Shanna Moalker, former playmate and terrible wife to Blink 182‘s Travis Barker, will host.
That this concept was even given the greenlight proves that everyone over at E! must be officially out of ideas. E! is notoriously cheap, too. Do they not realize how much time and money goes into plastic surgery shows!? They could get, like, 5 more Kardashian shows for the same price. It’ll be interesting to see just how shockingly bad this show turns out to be.
If you’re a bride-to-be, would you audition?
