Pimple Popper TV Is Coming And We're Already Grossed Out
And it's oozingly addictive. Warning: pimples are popped in this story.
What is it about squeezing zits?
Whether it's large blackheads, pimples or cysts, for some people, nothing comes close to that feeling you get when you squeeze the life out of these little suckers and it's never been more popular to do so.
You only have to type the word "popping" into Google and no doubt you'll be bombarded with an array of disgusting and stomach-churning pimple-popping clips to feast your eyes upon.
Let's face it, we all know someone who can't get enough pimple poppin' action in their life -- you know who you are! In fact, the practice has become so much of a cultural phenomenon that dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee -- aka Dr. Pimple Popper -- has become somewhat of a zit-busting guru, with almost four million fans tuning in to her YouTube channel daily.
Well, hold on to your hats -- and your lunch -- because Dr. Lee's explosive videos are being turned into a 6-episode TV series -- and it's heading to pay television network TLC in the upcoming weeks.
The oozingly addictive series follows in the footsteps of the one-off special This Is Zit and will follow Dr. Lee as she treats an assortment of unhappy -- and infected -- souls who have been burdened with some of the grossest and most eye-catching dermatological problems you'll ever see.
Aside from all the usual squeezin' and a-poppin', it's been reported that some of Dr. Lee's cases will include a mobility-reducing elephant-like skin condition, a Quasimodo-esque hump, protruding veins, tumours, and painful cysts that make everyday life for those affected unbearable.
In a statement from TLC, Dr. Lee said Dr. Pimple Popper will provide a complete window into her very busy world as a dermatologist.
"The TLC viewer goes on a journey with my patients during this series; first you meet the patients in their hometown, and see how their skin condition affects their life and the people around them," Dr. Lee said.
"You understand how devastating their condition really is, how it affects their everyday life, and how they interact with others and the world. I evaluate every patient and decide on a treatment course to help their skin conditions -- and afterward, we see how we have really transformed their lives!"
While we can't guarantee vomiting won't accompany your viewing pleasure, it will undoubtedly make for interesting -- and educational -- television. And given that we've seen shows like Botched be extremely popular with viewers, we can only expect the same for this gruesome series. #happypopping
