Summary In this UK series, four facially disfigured people take on a group of beauty addicts and challenge their perspective on life. Spending two weeks learning about each other's life, together they go on a journey to figure out what's more important; how a person looks on the outside or what's on the inside?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 pounds in the last five years on looking good and almost sacrificed his studies due to non-payment of student fees. Reggie has one of the world's most extreme cases of neurofibromatosis, a condition where tumours grow all over the body.In the first week, Reggie travels to London and gets to know Gary. Gary wants to have a nose job and look like female celebrity Kim Kardashian. In the second week, the pair fly back to Houston to meet Reggie's family. Here 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 now she has no sense of smell. Will Reggie persuade Gary not to have a nose job?PRODUCTION DETAILS:A Zodiac Media Production
