Series investigating the extremes of discrimination. Each episode brings together two people often defined by the way they look – one has a facial disfigurement, the other an intense preoccupation with their appearance.
Twenty-one-year-old beautyholic and drama student Gary Thompson meets 47-year-old Reggie Bibbs from Houston, Texas.
Gary has spent up to £31,000 in the last five years on looking good. He wants to have a nose job and look like Kim Kardashian.
Reggie has one the world’s most extreme cases of neurofibromatosis, a condition where tumours grow all over the body.
Gary learns about Reggie’s past and how he spent 30 years hiding from other people.
Reggie sends Gary to watch a rhinoplasty operation and he sees a surgeon breaking a patient’s nose. He also meets Tammy, a former rhinoplasty patient whose operation went wrong and who now has no sense of smell as a result. Will Reggie persuade Gary not to have a nose job?
