Jan’s the man!

May 28, 2008

The return of Ten Years Younger and not much has changed. They’ve had a nip and a tuck here and there with a new dental lady and make-up artist, but other than that it’s the same old same old. This week it was ex naval mum of many Amanda, who’s real age was 38 but who polled at 46. Ouch. Still it was all her doing – she smoked like a trouper, drank a shit load of sugary tea (20 cups a day apparently, which surely is impossible if you’re also running around after all your kids like she was) and didn’t bother with skin care or make-up. No wonder she looked like a skaggy old prozzie.

Thanks to Jan Stanek’s god-like genius (a nose job, a face lift and the usual acid on the face), a decent hair cut and some make-up though, the girl done good by the end and actually looked pretty darned foxy (and polled at 35).

The only weak link in the TYY posse, I think, is that god-awful Nicky Hambleton-Jones, her of the myriad pairs of glasses, haughty remarks and terrible dress sense. The woman – whose job it is to style people – actually went to a department store and convinced people *not* to buy clothes. Or rather, to only buy staples for their wardrobe. Fair enough, we do tend to buy crap that we never wear but it only served to take the fun out of shopping (you could almost hear the girl’s thinking, “But I REALLY WANT that top!”). Her whole point was that we shouldn’t buy things just because they’re high fashion…

She then styled Amanda in all the high-fashion stuff for “this season” (which incidentally, is now last season seeing as they filmed it months ago). Tsk, tsk, Nicky! Oh, and after explaining how glasses don’t have to be ugly, they give Amanda lazer surgery. Y’see, this is why Gok is better (even if he does talk in that really ‘hey girlfriend, we’re all, like, in on this together, like, right?’ way) – you just can’t warm to mask-wearing, weirdly ageless, cold fish Nicky.

Perhaps it’s time TYY got a bit of a face lift and got a new presenter…

    I like Gok but think he would have his work seriously stretch with me trying to make a super morbidly obese 300 lb tub of lard into a “please accept your beauty the way you are girlfriend” project.

    It works well on “pleasantly plump” ladies.

    For me, I want the full Nicky Hambleton-Jones treatment: I would love to be lippo’d, nipped, tucked and sucked to perfection.

    Where do I sign …?

    LOL yes his “girlfriend” talk does grate a tad but I rate him more as a stylist than Nicky. Maybe they could fuse the two shows, with the TYY lot doing their schtick and Gok doing the styling. That Nicky woman really is a robot imo!

    Ten Years Younger is a force for actual evil.
    Convincing people to fork out for cosmetic surgery on prime time TV?
    It should be pulled off the schedules.
