TLC BRINGS BACK A NEW SEASON OF "WHAT NOT TO WEAR"
Season Nine Premieres Tuesday, August 16 at 9PM ET/PT
(New York, NY) - Back with even more fashion disasters, humorous ambushes, and life-changing makeovers, TLC brings back its longest running prime time series WHAT NOT TO WEAR on Tuesday, August 16 at 9PM ET/PT for a ninth season. The network has ordered 26 hour-long episodes.
Season nine kicks off with a star-studded premiere featuring 'Dancing with the Stars' pro Cheryl Burke and actress Jenny McCarthy as they call on Stacy and Clinton to help show their personal assistant that she is worthy of a look that will put her front and center and will hopefully make her feel like she belongs in LA. Becky, a divorced 37 year-old Chicago native, thinks she's coming to NYC to help Cheryl shoot a PSA, but when Stacy and Clinton bust onto the set, it turns out Becky's the star of the show. So dedicated to Becky's makeover, Cheryl decides to spend the week in NYC and in the WHAT NOT TO WEAR studio so she can lend Stacy and Clinton a helping hand.
Other contributors this season include a woman who gets ambushed by Stacy and Clinton while shopping for her wedding dress, a woman who gets a surprise visit from Stacy and Clinton at a job interview, a data analyst who thinks she is going to a mandatory computer training program when Clinton and Stacy hack into her computer demanding she improve her wardrobe, and a woman who thinks she's attending an event at a military museum until Stacy and Clinton march in with a 14 soldier escort.
The contributors this season aren't the only ones getting a makeover; season nine brings a new look to the studio and signature 360 mirror. With a much a larger space, this new and improved 360 mirror forces each contributor to face every single angle of their body. There's no escaping their reflection, or Stacy and Clinton's reactions in this new space. Another new element this season includes a two-week follow up with each contributor to see how she's kept up the makeover and how it has affected her life.
WHAT NOT TO WEAR is produced by BBC Productions for TLC.
