Byline: Kara Jesella
nnie,* fourteen, from Washington, D.C., is
a connoisseur of plastic surgery reality shows. She watches MTV's I Want a Famous Face regularly, and has seen the network's True Life about cosmetic surgery ten times. She thinks Extreme Makeover is kind of sick and sad, but is most appalled by
The Swan. It's so awful, she says, referring
to the final episode's infamous beauty
pageant, in which the woman who has most
obediently acquiesced to her doctors' multisurgery makeover plan wins out over her fellow Swannabes in the race for the crown. The rest
of the women walk away losers. It's like
after all of those plastic surgeries, you're still
not pretty enough, Annie laments.
