The Price of Beauty Recap: Brazil
Last night on "The Price of Beauty", Jessica, Ken, and CaCee traveled to Brazil in search of beauty. Brazil is one of the world's top places for plastic surgery.
Now, I've always wanted to go to Brazil. The beaches look absolutely amazing and I've always wanted to see the Christ the Redeemer statue. And after this episode, I am dying to go to Brazil!
When the trio arrived, the girls talked Ken into getting waxed. I've never had any sort of wax treatment, but after watching this, I don't think I want to experience that pain.
The trio met with their beauty ambassador (a gorgeous, Brazilian woman with legs a mile long).
She explained to them that Brazilians want to flaunt what they've got. People of every shape and size were sporting their itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie bikinis. I think I would wear my bikini again in Brazil and not even think twice about it.
When Brazilians have plastic surgery, they want you to know. It's sort of like a "look what I just bought". Completely different than in America.
They met with a woman who has had over 40 different plastic surgery procedures. Heidi Montag, watch out! Actually the woman didn't look that bad. She'd actually been married to two plastic surgeons before and she's spent over $60,000 on her work. One of the things the trio noticed about her was something that was not plastic...the hair on her legs. Women in Brazil don't shave their legs. Instead, they have a treatment called a "golden shower" to bleach the hair on their legs. Let me just say that I died laughing. If you don't know what an American "golden shower" is, well, it doesn't mean bleaching the hairs on your legs.
They also met with a woman who spent money on a boob job rather than providing a better place to live for her and her daughter. She plans to teach her daughter that looks are the most important thing. Wow!
The trio then received a samba lesson and were invited to show off their new samba moves at a party. Jess stated that the samba was all about making your "booty clap".
Jessica got to step out of her comfort zone and dance her little heart out.
I have to say that I thought this was the best episode yet. I am dying to go to Brazil!! The Carnival costumes were so beautiful. I want to dance around in one.
Next week is the final episode and the trio heads into a high school in Los Angeles to talk to high school girls. I cannot wait to hear what they say.
