In an announcement that has already made headlines, E! will be debuting Bridalplasty, a reality competition that combines brides-to-be with extreme plastic surgery, in November. The 10-part one-hour series is produced by 51 Minds Entertainment and executive producers are 51 Minds’ Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego and Giuliana Rancic, star of E!’s Giuliana and Bill. Bridalplasty will put the brides-to-be in wedding-themed challenges, and each episode’s winner will receive a plastic surgery procedure from her ‘wish list.’ One competitor will be eliminated at the end of every episode, leading up to the finale where the series champion receives all of the plastic surgery on her wish list, which is revealed to her fiance at the wedding ceremony. The series is hosted by Shanna Moakler and features plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow, who was also on Fox’s The Swan.
