A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Because these girls were hand picked for their narcissistic behavior, you'll hear them say offensive, hurtful things; see them be rude to other people; and watch them tell lies to get what they want. In short, nobody in the house is a good role model ... but a few show promise of changing their ways. Ostensibly the show's message is to promote inner beauty, but that often pales in comparison to the contestants' "diva" ways.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Contestants sometimes wear revealing clothing that shows cleavage and/or bare midriffs. One woman says hat her special skills include "sleeping, shopping, and b--w jobs." Another feels a fellow contestant's breasts to find out whether they're real. A third says of two dogs sniffing each other, "He's, like, licking her vagina."

Strong language like "f--k" and "sh-t" (as well as "c--t") is bleeped, but it's used pretty often. Other audible words include "hooker," "skank," "nipple," "bitch," and "piss."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that teens will see a lot of inappropriate behavior modeled in this reality competition designed to reform 10 hand-picked "divas." The saltiest language (including "f--k," "s--t," and "c--t") gets bleeped, but plenty of audible words remain. There's also some drinking, smoking, and name-dropping when it comes to high-end labels -- and the girls dress and act suggestively, too (one even says that her special skills include "b--w jobs").
Is It Any Good?
As far as train wrecks go, there's plenty of carnage to go around in this reality competition from Oxygen (the same "woman-centric" network that brought the world The Bad Girls Club). Need examples? In the show's very first episode, the contestants are asked to throw a party for a group of mystery guests, who turn out to be blind men. "I don't know anybody that's blind," said the woman who ended up winning the challenge. "Their eyes are all, you know, messed up because they're handicapped and stuff. I felt really bad for them."
So, OK. The premise of ferreting out inner beauty sounds promising. But we promise you that your teens will learn plenty of iffy lessons along with the show's central message that personality is far more important than looks. And, really, it all seems rather pointless anyway. Why would you hold a competition in which the contestants aren't likely to care whether they get kicked off or not? After all, isn't it easier for them to go back to their old ways instead of trying to change?
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
