Bridalplasty: Have You Seen It?

February 9, 2011 | Elizabeth

Bridalplasty is a show on E! that gives future brides the chance to win the perfect wedding and plastic surgery after weeks of challenges against other brides.  Every week they compete to cross a plastic surgery off their wish list.  Some women got multiple surgeries while others left with none.  The show concluded on Jan. 30 but continues to stir up controversy.

One of the most talked about events during the season wasn’t actually the surgery or who needed the money the most for their wedding-but an alliance.  One of the show’s participants was named Janessa.  She began the show creating an alliance and kicked out people one by one.  Sneaky, manipulative and strategic, Janessa and her alliance stepped all over others to get surgeries and continue on to the next week.

Another interesting aspect of the show is when someone is eliminated. When a participant is eliminated the host says, “Your wedding will still go on, it just won’t be perfect.”

What kind of closing line is that?

And further, what does this show say about our society? What does this show say about women in America?
