I think that participating in a reality makeover show (1) Such as What Not to Wear has many advantages. (2) First of all you are given advice about what not to wear. And (3) more than that you are given advice on how to dress in the latest fashion. (4) Besides you are given 50,000 roubles to give your wardrobe a total makeover! You are advised about how to make the right choice when picking clothes and (5) as a result you start looking cool and stylish - you get a new look which is admired by everybody. (6 ) However participating in a makeover show has some disadvantages. (7 ) Firstly you are nominated as unfashionable by your close relatives or friends, which is offensive. (8) Secondly your look is criticized in front of millions of TV viewers, which is also very offensive. (9) Thirdly the style consultants’ advice is often rather cruel and posing before cameras is not easy. And (10) finally, if it is impossible to stick to the changes after several months, why start? (11) But, the most unpleasant thing of all is that you are not free to spend the money on what you like. (12) However, despite the disadvantages I would like to take part in such a show. (13) More than that Consolidation I would not be against some of my friends’ participating in the show. I wish the style consultants told me and my friends what would work best for us.
