Has anyone had work paid for by a TV show or some other sponsor?
 
I know on the tv shows they usually get it free or discounted.... anyone here taken advantage of that or some other form of sponsorship?

I dont know why on earth someone would want to go on national television like that and expose themselves and show and tell the whole world what theyre doing. are americans that crazed for the limelight?

Perhaps that's the case with a few, but I think it's more so that these individuals would never have the means to get a plastic surgery makeover without the show, and I don't blame them for that. A lot of those contestants they pick are average income middle class moms in middle America - good for them if they can get a free makeover and boost their self esteem.

Wouldn't it be embaressing though being seen by friends and neighbors? Especially if you live in a small town they would all talk about you. I'm just saying...

True true that wouldn't be fun. what they should do is get the surgery and then with all the money they saved moved to hawaii instead so their nosey neighbors will be gone :Angelic:

my friend got a rhinoplasty like 2 years ago by one of the plastic surgeons on dr. 90210 and they offered for her to be on the show but get this: they didn't even offer to do the surgery free they only offered a 15% discount on the surgeon fee. FIFTEEN LOUSY PERCENT?? like if u had to go on tv and everyone would then know u had a nosejob dont u deserve more than 15%? that show is like a commercial for the doctor so they make a ton of money from it by getting new customers. i wouldnt let that doctor exploit me and make money just for a 15% discount.

chapstickaddict 02-23-2008 04:59 PM

Yeah that is such a joke you deserve more than a discount and if that's all you are getting it should be lot more than just 15%

808girl 03-05-2008 05:14 PM

15% are u serious??

:shocked:

which p.s. was it that made that offer? they make soooooo much money off the free advertising for that show if anything not only should they be doing your work for free but also be paying you no different than if u were an actor in a commercial!!!!!!
