The groundbreaking series turns average-looking women into drop-dead-gorgeous beauties. But THE SWAN goes beyond other makeover shows, offering women the incredible opportunity to undergo complete life transformations, as they accomplish their goals and bring their dreams to fruition.
Contestants are given access to every possible resource to bring about these radical transformations: plastic surgeons, a cosmetic and reconstructive dentist, a trainer, a nutritional plan, therapy and life coaching.
The series is especially dramatic because the contestants are not permitted to see themselves in a mirror during the three-month transformation process. Only the most beautiful and transformed women will be selected to compete in next season's Swan Pageant and further their chances of being crowned "The Swan" during a dazzling, suspense-filled season finale.
