A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Lose weight to seek revenge against those who wronged you. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Khloé wants to inspire; some trainers kinder than others. 

Violence

Grunting, crying during workouts. Some yelling. 

Sex

Discussions about attractiveness, hot bodies, etc. People shirtless, in bikinis. 

Language

"Bitch," "hell"; lots of bleeped curses. 

Consumerism

Hollywood doctors, trainers featured.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Drinking (shots, champagne) visible. 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian focuses on people losing weight, mainly to get back at those who judge them for it. It contains lots of strong language (curses bleeped), some sexual innuendo (including revealing clothes and shirtless men), and drinking. Much of the show's focus is on looking good, rather than being healthy or developing a better body image.

What's the story?

REVENGE BODY WITH KHLOE KARDASHIAN is a reality series featuring men and women who want to seek revenge against people by losing weight and getting a celebrity makeover. Khloé Kardashian meets folks who have been insulted or rejected by friends, family, and lovers because they are overweight. After sharing their stories with the reality star, they are paired up with a celebrity trainer, including Gunnar Peterson and Luke Milton, and spend six weeks working out and getting top-notch celebrity beauty treatments. If they are successful in losing some weight, they get the chance to show themselves off to the people who rejected them. 

Is it any good?

This lukewarm reality show combines self-esteem with inappropriate messages about getting back at someone by flaunting a new body. While workouts and getting the right support are briefly discussed, these points are overshadowed by conversations about looking good. Featuring cast members receiving Hollywood fashion and beauty treatments the Kardashians enjoy also adds to this.  

There are a few positive moments, but the show fails to address the self-esteem and body image issues that are often associated with being overweight. Khloe also fails to mention the multiple procedures she's undergone to help her look slimmer when she talks about how she goes about losing weight. Some folks (especially Kardashian fans) may find Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian inspiring, but most of its messages aren't very constructive.
