"Where Are They
Now?/Jennifer and Kimberly" - October 25
Which brings us to now. Sixteen average ducklings are
about to undergo life-altering transformations. Some
will go to the Pageant at the end of the season. Some
will go home. All will be changed. Forever.
And speaking of change, the
Swan team has picked up a new member, personal trainer
Debbie Siebers (replacing outgoing Greg Comeaux). Now
that THAT's out of the way, it's time to meet today's
pair of egrets.
(30; mother of three from Mesa, AZ) is struggling with
scars from her past. When she was six, she was trapped
in a house fire, and as a result, suffered from
third-degree burns all over her bodies. She's constantly
taking a vigil over her kids, and her husband is worried
that she has no friends to "do things with".
Dr. Haworth says it's
impossible to remove her scars completely, but
dermabrasion would help to lessen their appearance. Also
of note: Dr. Worth notices that she'll need a full set
of veneers. I finally looked this up after last season,
and according to the dictionary, a "veneer" is an
ornamental or protective facing. Well there you go. If
anyone asks, you heard it here.

Kimberly Wilburn (37; mother of four from Cleveland
Heights, OH). She's a full-time mom with a very unusual
childhood. Her mother died when she was 14. She was
determined to graduate college. Children have taken
their toll on her physically, as she's gained 65 pounds
since giving birth for a second time. She thinks she has
a beautiful figure underneath a lot of flag.
Dr. Ianni notes that her
past may have been a source for strength early on, but
has deteriorated. Dr. Dubrow wants to do a tummy tuck,
breast lift, and face refinement. Debbie wants to attack
the lower body.

You have the knowledge,
you know the odds, the rest is in the cards. Jennifer
and Kimberly, welcome to the first day of the rest of
your life. Just a reminder that every reflective surface
has been treated, every mirror has been sealed, and
every contraband has been properly dealt with. After
last season, nothing is being left to chance.
consult with Dr. D: "Kim used to have a great body but a
bad life. Now she has a good life. It's time for that
great body." Going over the motions with a super-imped
screen... Okay... At the moment before surgery, Kim
agrees to do her nose as well, and she's very specific
about what she wants done: "No pig snout, no pinch, no
eagle nose, no gorilla nose, no Michael nose, no Brandy
nose, no packing, and no pain." And just what's wrong
with Brandy? We're all fine until Kim wakes up and finds
herself in the middle of a panic attack, fearing that
she will not be able to breathe.
consult with Dr. H: "At times she really looks
beautiful, and at times you can see her beauty coming
out. (about her scars) She's going to have a dramatic
improvement, but it will not be absolutely perfect."
Biggest challenge: scars and nose. Dr. H is pleased with
his results on the day of surgery.
consult at the Nutri/system: She has 35 pounds to
lose... and they're not going away easy. Not if Kim's
appetite has anything to say about it.
appointment: "Basically needs a full mouth
reconstruction." She gets that. She'll be back later to
finish the job. That night, Jennifer calls the kids,
giving her a bit of grief.
Now that the painful
part is over, it's time for the hard part to begin. Kim
has pain to overcome, while Jennifer is on the right
foot with recovery, but on the wrong foot with her
emotions, missing her kids and husband.
Meanwhile, Kim gets a
visit from Nely (because she likes to drop in whenever
someone's having issue). Her issue: not letting the
professionals do their job. Examples: being defensive in
therapy, wearing a girdle in the gym. She cries that
she's being misunderstood. The truth is that people will
help her if she lets them. One of those people that
wants to help... Cindy from last season. Basically says
that the only way to get through this is with a positive
At Jennifer's therapy
session, she confronts her mother for leaving her in the
burning house so many years ago through roleplay. As for
the scars, Nely tells her to wear them "like jewels". I
would've preferred "badges of honor" but any port in a
But is it enough? Fast
forward one month, and Kim is first to the reveal.
Before, she was a run-over mother who didn't want a pig
snout, a pinch, an eagle nose, a gorilla nose, a
Michael... oh, you get it. Now... Very nice looking, but
Roberta Flack called. She wants her face and body back.
She's too busy working it, and for good reason. She
looks "great", but how will she feel? It's time once
again for the Mirror of Fate (TM, Chico Alexander).
Whenever Kim is ready, the curtain will be drawn to
"Wow. Oh my God. Oh my
GOD!! Oh my God... Look how little I am! (copping her
own feel) Damn, girl!"
Damn indeed. On the
other side of the coin, there's Jennifer. The experts
wanted to draw attention away from scars physical and
mental. She's stopped hiding, but does it show three
months on? I'd say so, yeah. And for the first time,
Amanda is speechless. Is that a good thing? Jennifer
can't wait to go somewhere and not hide. And speaking of
hiding, here's the mirror again.
And Jennifer is
speechless as well. But who will move onto the pageant?
Remember, the experts are judging on poise, beauty,
overall transformation, and who can run a
seven-minute-mile quicker. The first entry into the
second Swan Pageant is... Jennifer Patten. Dr. Lynn
noticed that she was committed, and Nely concurs. But
before we say goodbye to Kimberly, we have husband Juan
and the kiddies to reunite with their new mommy.
Next time we see
Jennifer will be in a few weeks for the pageant.
Hopefully the next time we see you will be next week.
See you soon!
