Watch this show, buy this product, you can be a whole new you! Makeover television shows repeatedly promise self-renewal and the opportunity for reinvention, but what do we know about the people who watch them? As it turns out, surprisingly little. The Makeover is the first book to consider the rapid rise of makeover shows from the perspectives of their viewers. Katherine Sender argues that this genre of reality television continues a long history of self-improvement, shaped through contemporary media, technological, and economic contexts. Most people think that reality television viewers are ideological dupes and obliging consumers. Sender, however, finds that they have a much more nuanced and reflexive approach to the shows they watch. They are critical of the instruction, the consumer plugs, and the manipulative editing in the shows. At the same time, they buy into the shows’ imperative to construct a reflexive self: an inner self that can be seen as if from the outside, and must be explored and expressed to others. The Makeover intervenes in debates about both reality television and audience research, offering the concept of the reflexive self to move these debates forward.

"This study identifies the makeover film as a specific genre with a history and conventions of its own. Groupings of films emerge: Cinderella films; teen transformations, like She's All That (1999) and Clueless (1995); films cut to fit the Pygmalion pattern, like Shampoo (1975) and Up Close and Personal (1996); and films that feature more mature, wiser heroines, like Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974) and My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002). This study closely considers the handling and cultural implications of the makeovers. Most importantly, the authors explore why female viewers respond so enthusiastically to a genre that implies women need to be transformed."--BOOK JACKET.

They've got the 'friends' part down pat. But now, they have to learn how to be lovers. Samantha has been best friends with Colton since they were toddlers. His NBA career has never impressed her, nor would he want it to. Their friendship is based on two things: a long, shared history, and Sam's tendency to keep things real with him, even if the rest of the world doesn't. When Sam realizes that the feelings she has for Colton-that are much stronger than friendship-might be returned, it seems like their problems are over, but no, that's when the real trouble starts.

When Jane Richards woke up bound and blindfolded, she just knew it had to be a mistake. She was a small-town librarian, after all. Who'd want to kidnap her? Little did she know that her striking resemblance to Elena, the queen of Vendari, would result in her being whisked away to parts unknown and coerced into acting as Elena's double. Jane's only ally was the majorly sexy Major Lucius McConneghy. But could she trust him? Lucius had sworn to protect Jane no matter what. But with death threats aimed at the real Elena, keeping Jane out of trouble wouldn't be easy. At first Lucius's promise was professional, but as the mission progressed--and his attraction to the surprisingly brave Jane became impossible to ignore--he couldn't prevent it from becoming personal....
