The Search Continues for Women Seeking Transformations on Third Season of Hit Series 'The Swan'

[via press release from FOX]

THE SEARCH CONTINUES FOR WOMEN SEEKING TRANSFORMATIONS ON THIRD SEASON OF HIT SERIES "THE SWAN"

Makeover Series to Hold Live Auditions for Women Seeking Radical Life Changes

Even before the most popular makeover series in America returns for season 2 Monday, Oct. 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), open auditions are set for the third season of THE SWAN, the groundbreaking FOX series that turns average-looking women into drop-dead-gorgeous beauties. Auditions will take place in seven cities across the U.S.

Producers are looking for female contestants, ages 21-45, with a history or connection to each other, such as twins, sisters, mothers and daughters, couples, best friends, mothers and stepmothers or even rivals who want to undergo emotional, mental and physical transformations together on television's top makeover series.

Applicants must have health and dental insurance, not be recovering from any surgeries or illnesses and also must not need to lose more than 40 pounds. Videotaped submissions can be sent to "The Swan" � Season Three, 2554 Lincoln Boulevard, PMB #1013, Venice, CA 90291. For audition and submission information, log on to the website at www.fox.com/swan, email a submission and photograph to betheswan@yahoo.com or call 1-800-535-7936. Videos and photos will not be returned.

The second season of THE SWAN premieres with a special two-hour episode on Monday, Oct. 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. In the first hour, the participants from season 1 reunite for the first time on television to share stories, reminisce about their experiences in the Swan program and update viewers on how their lives have fared their makeovers. After a sneak peak at the new group of Swans, the transformations will begin in the second hour, when viewers will be introduced to two women who are transformed inside and out through cosmetic surgery and an intensive "boot camp" of exercise, diet, therapy and coaching, all while not seeing themselves in a mirror during the three-month process. After the final reveal of their transformations, one will be selected to move on to the Swan Pageant and one will go home. Another two women are transformed on the time period premiere of THE SWAN Monday, Nov. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
