Love it

This is great motivation for people wanting to get fit. I think she should do an exercise DVD. 5 stars ☆☆☆☆☆

Good if taken with a grain of salt

There's definitely a focus on material aspirations here - a slim body, nice clothing, professionally-done makeup - but the stories from the participants feel earnest, and the show makes it clear that it's hard physical and emotional work that gets the weight lost and kept off. Satisfying fluff for older teens and up. Content is safe for younger teens, but ensure they watch it with critical thinking and skepticism turned way up.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (1 ):

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.
