Hit FOX Makeover Series to Hold Live Auditions For Women Seeking Life Transformations
The most popular makeover series in America returns with open auditions for the second season of THE SWAN, the groundbreaking FOX series that turns average-looking women into drop-dead-gorgeous beauties. Auditions will take place in six cities across the U.S. starting on Saturday, June 5.
THE SWAN goes beyond other makeover shows, offering women the incredible opportunity to undergo complete life transformations, as they accomplish their goals and bring their dreams to fruition. To bring about these radical transformations, contestants are given access to a team of plastic surgeons, a cosmetic and reconstructive dentist, a trainer, a nutritional plan, therapy and life coaching.
The series is especially dramatic because the contestants are not permitted to see themselves in a mirror during the three-month transformation process. Only the most beautiful and transformed women are selected to compete in the Swan Pageant and further their chances of being crowned "The Swan" during a dazzling, suspense-filled season finale.
Producers are looking for female contestants, ages 21-45. They must have health and dental insurance and must not be recovering from any surgeries or illnesses. Videotaped submissions can be sent to "The Swan" – Season Two, 2554 Lincoln Boulevard, PMB #1013, Venice, CA 90291.
