Did anyone see The Tyra Show yesterday? What message did you get from it?

I was watching the Tyra Show yesterday and they were doing yet another of her social experiments. I personally found the results and lesson if this one ended up being, for me at least, the opposite of what she had intended. They had 3 girls who were jealous of thier more attractive friends or siblings come on and basically blamed the more attractive ones for everything that was wrong in the less attractive ones life. Then they made the pretty ones up with halloween makeup to make them ugly and gave the less attractive ones makeovers. So the message I got from it was that the attractive ones were being punished for taking care of themselves and being pretty, while the less attractive ones were rewarded for blameing thier problems on someone else based on nothing but appearance. Then for me the final message I got from it was just how dumb the less attractive girls were being to lash out at thier more attractive friends, becuase after thier makeovers they went on and on about how pretty they felt and crap, therefore proveing all it takes is some time and effort and makeup and they could have looked the way they wanted all along. Instead they complained about it, and lashed out at people who did take the time to look good, and in the end they were rewarded and told they were right for thier laziness in not trying to improve thier looks themselves, and thier shallowness in blameing the appearnace of someone else for thier problems. What is this world coming to? Did you see this show? What did you think of the experiment?

Your synopsis and conclusions made me chuckle. I'm sure Tyra would have been horrified at the conclusions you came to. LOL. I didn't see it, but you made some very good points.
