TV Shows - Swan, The
The Swan was a 2004 U.S. reality television program broadcast on Fox in which supposedly very ugly women were given "extreme makeovers" that included several forms of plastic surgery. The title of the series refers to the story of The Ugly Duckling that grows up and becomes a swan.
Each contestant was assigned a panel of specialists - a coach, therapist, trainer, cosmetic surgeons and a dentist - who together designed an individually tailored program for her. The contestants' work ethic, growth and achievement was monitored during a three-month transformation process. Two women were featured every week and at the episode's conclusion, one went home and one was selected to move on to the Swan pageant, where the women competed with each other to be The Swan.
Both the first and second seasons debuted in 2004. A third season was tipped to happen, but the show was cancelled in early 2005 after continued ratings drops.
