There's Going To Be A ‘Dr Pimple Popper’ TV Show And It’s Going To Be Disgusting
| Last updated
Good news. If you're the kind of sick and twisted individual that gets their kicks out of seeing huge boils, pimples and cysts exploding with all manner of bodily fluids, there is a new show on the way for you.
Sandra Lee (AKA Doctor Pimple Popper) will be arriving on TV screens later this year for some gross-out blackhead bursting fun.
After the success of her frankly disgusting YouTube and Instagram videos in which the Californian dermatologist gets literally up to her elbows in other people's pus, US cable channel TLC will be presenting hour long episodes in which she will showcase her repulsive talents.
Yes, that's 60 whole minutes of spot popping on the telly. Human beings truly are nature's greatest monsters.
The show has been commissioned after the success of a TV special last year that went behind the scenes with Dr Lee earlier this year.
As it happens, that show followed Dr Lee's journey to burst a 'football sized' cyst on the back of a homeless bloke.
During each show, Sandra and her team will attempt to "resolve some unusual dermatologist cases, as well as transform the lives of her patients," according to entertainment news website The Wrap.
In order to do this they will don their anti-squirt gear and breaking out scalpels and syringes to solve their patients revolting issues.
But wait! There's more!
Whilst TLC hasn't officially confirmed the series, they did put out a casting call - which means that if you've got a horrific cyst, boil, or spot that you'd like to have disposed of on cable television, you can do just that.
The call read: "TLC's Dr. Pimple Popper starring Dr. Sandra Lee (aka Dr. Pimple Popper); a renowned board-certified dermatologist, is looking for individuals that are in need of her help!"
"Do you have a lipoma or cyst? Are you suffering from severe blackheads or acne? Do you have an undiagnosed skin condition that is negatively affecting you? We want to hear your story,"
The call goes on to ask potential candidates to send in pictures of their 'problem areas'. The lengths that some people will go to in order to get their fifteen minutes of fame, eh?
Anyway, we don't know when the show will actually air - presumably it will be as soon as they've managed to compile as much repulsive footage as possible and found a team of video editors with stomachs strong enough to carry out the job without vomiting.
I'm sure that Dr Lee provides a valuable service to her patients; I just fail to see why that needs to be on the TV.
