"Erica & Christina" -
First under the knife tonight is Erica Moore (24,
La Center, WA), an adopted child whose mother is of
Japanese descent. Erica's chubbiness has taken a toll on
her confidence, as has her ex-boyfriend. She had lose 90
pounds, but she hasn't lost that big-girl mentality. She
wants the wow out of life. Can the experts give it to

Christina Ozuna (30; Silverdale, WA). Her husband in
the Navy, her divorced parents, and her disassociating
father has taken a toll on her emotionally. She lost 30
pounds, but has since hit a plateau. She just wants to
be a good mother to her 8-year-old daughter.
Nely notes a red flag
that prompts her to work with Debbie. She also needs a
full-mouth reconstruction among other things...

It's go time.
consult: sagging skin, breast droop, asymmetry, time to
call Dr. H. He starts with liposuction, followed by
matching asymmetrical breasts. After the face... "Now
consult with Dr. W: "I think she's gone through years of
neglect with her teeth. I have to do just about a
full-mouth reconstruction on her."
consult: She needs to lose 30 pounds, but she can eat
five times a day... How fair is that?
At the gym, Christina
notes that the trainer is absolutely insane. Debbie
notes that Christina expects the surgery to do all the
work for her, but it's on her to keep it that way with
Erica's dental consult:
cleaning and veneers. Erica doesn't want the veneers at
first. Dr. W gives her time to think about it. In the
end, she does go through with it.
consult: What size breasts does she want? "As big as I
can go without looking ridiculous." Define "ridiculous."
She wants to go DD. That's pretty ridiculous on a woman
her size, but it's doable. "Christina's surgery could be
very painful and actually quite difficult to recover
from. But I think she's going to be incredible when
she's done." Before the surgery, the jitters. During the
surgery, Dr. D notes an "unbelievably fascinating
nose"... not in a good way, though. After Dr. D's DD's,
"truly a work of art." Yeah, we'll see.
Two days after,
Christina's having a tough time with her recovery. She's
in a lot of pain, whereas Erica's right on track with
her healing. Of course, some of that is on Christina as
she isn't wearing her chinstrap as prescribed by the
doc. Dude, listen to the doctor, he knows more than you.
"If you bleed into the neck because you haven't been
compressing it, that could turn into scar tissue and
that could be irreversible." She tries to foll him into
thinking that she has been wearing the strap for the
next two weeks... Didn't work.
transformation: "She needs to grow up." That leads to
role-play with Dr. Ianni as her mother. Ah, a
Meanwhile, Nely takes on
Christina with the only weapon she has... her audition
tape. Yeah, you know those little disclaimers as to why
tapes become property of Fox? This is why. Thanks to
Nely, Christina now have time to turn her lack of
commitment around... one month, to be precise. Remember,
they haven't seen themselves in three.
First, Christina. She
was worried about everyone around her that she never got
around to herself. She still looks a bit awkward... but
at least she's smiling about it now. She was too
concerned with her family to totally give it, but will
she give in once she sees what she looks like three
"I can't believe this is
me." Believe it. She got results after letting the
people do their job.
But how about Erica? She
was making headway very quickly, but has it shown? Okay,
Erica's gone, and Gena Lee Nolin has taken her place.
Yeah, she knows what's coming next. She knows about the
mirror, let's just go right to the hit...
"Oh my God. I'm
beautiful. I love it! I'm not the big girl anymore."
This is pretty much Wow and Pizzazz enough for her.
Seeing later pictures, I see that she has come a long
way, but she has still a long way to go... Now to the
reveal that counts. Remember, the experts are judging on
poise, beauty, overall transformation, and who would
more or less make for better TV. Joining Jennifer Patton
and Gina Davis in the Swan Pageant is... Erica Moore.
Christina wasn't ready to focus on herself, while Erica
stepped out on her own for the first time. Christina,
though, is learning not to forget about herself anymore.
That as she rejoins her aunt and daughter (husband
Michael is now serving on a submarine).
Next time we see
Erica will be in a few weeks for the pageant. Next time
we see you will be next week, we hope, as the
transformations continue... with SISTERS!
