    FOX begins search for a new "Swan"

    SEARCH FOR A NEW "SWAN" BEGINS

    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.

    No, I really, really liked the show although I think perhaps the contestants could have been screened a little better. Some of the attitude problems were a little hard to understand given all the free stuff and effort that was done on their behalf. I mean it was understood what was going to happen when they signed up for the show so I was really ashamed for some of them with their attitudes. I have watched the pageant a few times since I taped it and I thought it was fun. When else would any of these women get to do such a fun thing? The only person I really think is silly and over the top is the hostess Amanda. There has to be someone a little more user friendly than her. She is so mechanical and cold and has no rapport with the women at all. She detracts from the show and makes it seem sillier than it already is, lol. But, I digress, I liked the show, yes it's unfortunate that we can't all just be happy with the way we are but since that is the case I think it's nice that they not only work on the outside but the inside as well. Having said that I do think some of the procedures were overly aggressive and unneccessary but nothing was done that wasn't agreed upon by the contestants who didn't have to do any of it if they didn't want to. I also agree that I can't imagine letting anyone know about my marital problems on national TV and don't see how that's going to help when they get back home and the other person feels like the whole knows what a jerk you've been to someone, lol. I mean that was a little uncomfortable to watch for me. I could live without knowing all those sorts of details. But I'm sure that a lot of people could relate to that side of it. They sure didn't sugar coat anything.
