What do you get when you take ANOTHER set of sixteen ugly ducklings, fly them to a mansion with no mirrors, then have them undergo radical transformations including plastic surgery, dental work, fitness regimens, and life coaching, THEN have them compete in a beauty pageant for hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes? A second helping of "the most unusual competition ever devised for television."

"Cinnamon & Patti" - November 22

Welcome to "Cops"... the beauty pageant edition.

First, Cinnamon Smith (31; Philadelphia), a divorced police officer who was really tomboyish as a child and continued to be to this day. Her off-duty life: eating what her kids eat and wearing a muumuu.  She wants to feel more confident about herself. Dr. Dubrow wants to refine her nose. Debbie wants to refine her body. Nely just wants to see her in underwear.

Her competitor: Patti Chedohan (42 - oldest of the swans, New Caney, TX), a computer technician and former police officer, who lost her first husband to brain cancer. Because of caring for him, she hasn't had time for herself OR her kids. She feels like she lost the time that was most precious time. New husband Stan wish her luck on her way. Dr. Lynn put it best: cancer shook her world.

It's time for the first day of the rest of your life. Cinnamon embraces her three months, while Patti struggles with the challenges of days past.

Patti's surgical consult with Dr. D: he calls in an ocular specialist to see what he can do about the eyelids and the eyes bugging out. Meanwhile, Patti calls attention to a large cyst on her nose. That shouldn't be a problem after the first surgery. But the doc has concerns. The mass on the nose was deeper than he thought, and has to be removed so they can find out what it is. Now it's off to analysis where people in lab coats like myself will deduce whether or not it's malignant. In the meantime, the rest of the surgery is off.

Cinnamon's dental consult with Dr. W: It hurts that she has a morbid fear of the dentist. She hasn't been in 10 years, so we get to see what lurks behind a ten-year-old crown... and I don't think I want to see that anymore.  Put the temp veneers on, already. One visit down. Six to go.

Separation anxiety sits in for Patti, who calls Stan.

Cinnamon's surgical consult with Dr. D: He wants to feminize her masculine body. She says she wants small D, large C breasts, but Dr. D asks "Isn't that too big for a cop?" "They'll have to order me a new bulletproof vest!" After the nose, Cinnamon's pretty much ready. Lipo... check. Breast augs... check. Nose... check. Call to kids... check. Post-op, she's halfway to beauty: "It's all fun & games until somebody gets a nose job."

Back to Patti. The test results on the mass are now in... and the result is not good. "Unfortunately, it's cancer." World rocking and very serious news. What's worse is that there's still more in her nose, but it can be removed. In the meanwhile, she doesn't want her kids to know, telling Stan not to tell her.

She sees Dr. Lynn about the breakdown. "I can't cure her cancer, but I can help her let go of all the guilt around it." Cinnamon calls home, as she's missing her kids. It's become painful to look at picture.

And now, the moment of truth for Patti, victimized by basal cell skin cancer. Dr. Vincent Hung will attempt to remove all the cells until the cancer is gone. After four hours... all the cancer is gone. "I'm cancer-free. That's remarkable." And now to continue her surgery.

Cinnamon gets mail from her precinct... and a pair of stiletto heels. Now to practice... Remember, heel toe, heel toe.

Fast forward a month to the final reveal. First up, Cinnamon gets out from under a panic attack and shattered pride (from her police precinct) to emerge... looking like Dr. W? That's freaky. But you want freaky, the journey of a "fairy god-team" results in a reveal in a fairy god-mirror.

"Oh my God! I'm so happy! I'm gonna smile all the time!"

Good for you, Officer Smith. Now to Patti. She came from a past of cancer and a present of cancer, but she's come through a lot to be here... And Nely said it herself: "You are the bomb!" Well, if anyone deserves it, it's her. She's been given the gift of health and the gift of beauty, and now she gets to see both in the Mirror of Fate...

"Whoo! Wow. I do look 20 years younger! I can't believe I'm 42." Amanda tells her that she looks more like 22. She's gone through a LOT and is a winner in her own right, but will it be enough to advance to the pageant? Remember, the experts are judging on poise, beauty, overall transformation, and blondeness. Because almost everyone on this show is blonde to some extent. Moment of truth time. Joining Jennifer Patton, Gina Davis, Erica Moore, and Kari Bravada in the Swan Pageant is... Cinnamon. She has an incredible outlook on life, says Dr. W. Don't cry for Patti, though, as she's been given so much more, and Stan is now witness to that.

Next time we see Cinnamon will be in a few weeks for the pageant. Next time we see you will be next week, we hope, as the transformations continue... and yet another one of those shocking moments...
