POD, you've got your work cut out!
I'm Ellie Taylor, and if you're clocking up miles
on the motorway of fakery then be warned
because Snog, Marry, Avoid is going to steer you in a new direction.
Our Personal Overhaul Device, or POD for short,
has been stripped down and rebooted
and has waged war on Britain's biggest fakers.
POD would like to know how much does it cost to look this cheap?
And nowhere is safe. This time round, POD is on the road.
POD computes you look orange.
I look brown.
From Manchester to Cardiff, Liverpool to Newcastle,
if it's fake, we'll find it.
Hi, POD. Let us in!
And this week, POD is back in the capital of Wales
and also one of our capitals of fakery.
Yes, we're returning to...Cardiff.
-How are you today?
I'm very well. We're in Cardiff.
The sun is shining, all is well with the world.
Yes, we are in Cardiff and POD computes
that the women in Cardiff have an obsession
with ridiculous, Rapunzel-like hair extensions.
Your mission today is to find out what that's all about.
Do I get to have them put in?
That makes it sound like you want them in.
Is it bad that I really, really do?
It's very bad, Ellie.
You can have them put in as a test, but then you WILL be taking them out.
-Sure, OK. In Opposite Land...
Coming up in tonight's show, we have a dose of double trouble
from sisters who think they're only pretty in pink.
We share everything. Our make-up, perfume.
Hair extensions, everything.
-Some Welsh dragons get their street style roasted by POD.
POD computes you look as though you've been baked in an oven.
That's not a bad thing though.
And we meet a boy with an animal attraction
which means people don't take him FUR real.
This is going to sound really horrible.
Having a dead animal on me makes me feel better.
POD's set me the mission of getting my very own hair extensions.
Before I become Wales's answer to Rapunzel,
it's time to find out just why the ladies of Cardiff
love to rock a fake lock.
I think hair extensions are popular in Wales
because girls want their hair to be like Cheryl Cole. Thick, long...
-What do you think about hair extensions?
-We love them.
I'm obsessed. We can't go out without them.
You can have long ones, curly ones, you can have clip-in ones.
This is how much of my hair is fake.
They're all clipped into my hair
and they're a pain because they itch.
Daisy, what's so big about the long hair extension?
Girls love long hair extensions just to add volume,
to add highlights, to add low lights.
All of these reality TV shows going on right now,
they want hair just like that.
MUSIC: "Devil's Haircut" by Beck
OK, so we're all done now.
-Can I have a look?
-Yes, sure you can.
-Are you pleased with your work?
-I am. I absolutely love it.
I just caught myself pouting, which I think means that I love it!
-They look amazing on you.
MUSIC: "Whip My Hair" by Willow
Do you like these hair extensions I just had done?
-They look beautiful.
-Do you think so?
I couldn't even tell they were extensions.
It makes me want to do that a lot.
Do you think they look natural on me?
-Have you got them in?
-Did you not realise?
-That's a win.
-Do you think it looks fake?
A lot of the time I think girls do look fake with hair extensions,
but no, not yours.
Get in here now, Ellie. ELLIE LAUGHS
What do you think?
-I don't like it.
-Are you kidding? It looks amazing.
-You can't leave it alone.
-I know, it's fantastic.
Remember, Ellie, we're here to fight fakery. Now take them out.
-What do I do with these?
Throw them in the bin.
-I love you. Farewell.
It's double trouble now with two sisters
who are definitely doing it for themselves.
But I don't think they'll do anything for POD.
-# Come on, Barbie, let's go party
-I'm a Barbie girl...
-Hi, I'm Tessa, I'm 20 years old.
-Hi, I'm Nina and I'm 22 years old.
-And we're from Barbie World.
-If we could describe our style it would be
glamorous and pink.
We've got the long blonde hair, the eyelashes, the tan.
-Do you want this really big at the top?
I'm the oldest out of both of us
although everyone thinks we're twins.
We share everything, our make-up, perfume.
Hair extensions, everything.
I've just done a spray tan,
so to keep it on and dry it in faster,
you will see me hair-drying it.
I've been with my boyfriend for four years now
and he hates all the hair extensions, fake tan, he hates it.
He says I'm better off without it.
It's quite annoying.
Usually her fake tan and make-up get everywhere
especially if I'm wearing white shirts.
I think sometimes people just look at us and think, "Blonde."
-Like we're really stupid and stuff.
-But we're actually not.
-We're really clever.
# Yeah! #
It's only taken us three hours to get ready.
-Now it's time to party hard.
-Time to party, POD.
-We usually get nice compliments and that.
-When we're out.
Last week someone walked past and was like, "Tantastic!"
I don't know if that's a compliment.
I think it was a compliment.
I hope POD can help me in a makeunder
so I don't take as long to get ready.
Also that people can take us a bit more seriously
and maybe stop judging us as the Barbie twins.
-POD, you've got double the trouble.
-And twice the challenge.
# Oh, I'm having so much fun
# Well, Barbie, we're just getting started. #
Tessa and Nina remind me of a song by the king of pop.
No, not Michael Jackson, Cliff Richard.
Walking Talking Living Doll.
Who hasn't got that on their generic MP3 player?
Anyway, they're in here.
-How are you?
-Very good, thanks.
-Do you always speak together like this?
-You're not twins, though, are you?
-No. We are sisters, though.
What do your family think of your look?
My boyfriend hates it.
He thinks it's better, the natural look, no fake tan
or hair extensions. I always get him
to put fake tan on my back and he hates it.
-He's always got brown hands!
-So why have you come in to see POD?
We think it would be, like, a totally different experience,
-something really fun.
-To get a makeunder.
Just to see what we look like all natural, although we're scared!
I've devised a little quiz
to learn a little bit about you both separately.
Out of the both of you, who has the best haircut?
-No, our hair is the same! Our hair's the same.
-I've got really good make-up as well.
-Who is the most fake?
-We're both the same.
-We've got fake hair, eyelashes, tan.
-I've got fake nails.
-Yeah, so she's maybe more fake just now!
What would happen if POD made you look different
-so you didn't look like twins any more?
-I don't know!
I can't wait to see what she's going to do.
All the very best of luck. POD awaits!
I am POD, the Personal Overhaul Device. Who are you?
-Hi, POD, I'm Nina.
-And I'm Tessa.
Why are you dressed like a pair of Barbies?
I don't think we do. I think we look like lovely, pretty Barbies.
Yeah, just pretty Barbies.
-Or twin Barbies!
-Yeah, twin Barbies.
Oh, are you twins?
We're not really twins, POD. But everyone thinks we are.
-But you are related?
So why do you look like twins, then?
-She copies me.
-No, we've just got the same style, POD.
POD computes that you both appear to be copying Miss Piggy's style.
-Miss Piggy?! No way!
-No, she styles herself on us.
Yes. I'm not sure that's a good thing.
And what do you two Muppets - sorry, girls -
think your look says about you to the general public?
That we are not scared to be different,
we take care of our appearance.
Shall we find out?
-Run phase one, public analysis.
I asked the public if they would want
to snog, marry or avoid these girls.
-What do you think they said?
-Probably said avoid.
It's all people we'd avoid that you ask!
I'd probably avoid both of these two, especially on a night out.
They look like hard work, both of them.
-We are hard work.
I would definitely avoid, because they're far too made-up and fake.
I would avoid, because they look fake,
I don't like the bleached blonde hair, fake boobs.
Fake boobs?! We don't have any plastic surgery!
In fact, 70% of the public said that they would avoid you.
-Why? They all look the same.
-I'm sure we'd avoid them.
-That's a bit harsh.
Girls, are you ready to hear POD's verdict?
Go on then, POD.
POD computes that you need my:
OK, POD, see what you can do.
Run phase two, deep cleanse.
Remove all your excess baggage.
Bye-bye, feathery rings!
That's it, girls. Cover up all that horrendous orange tan.
We're going to look really horrible!
There we go. Hold them up, girls.
-Girls, isn't that a lot of make-up?
-No, not really.
Run the makeunder in three, two, one!
-What do you think?
-I really like the hair.
-I like both our hairs.
-And I think the make-up is really nice.
POD computes you both look utterly stunning.
Girls, what do you think this look now says about you to the general public?
I think this look makes us look more classy,
maybe people will take us more serious and not judge us.
-Shall we find out?
I asked the public if they wanted to snog, marry or avoid these girls.
-What do you think they said?
I'm not sure if this is against the rules,
but can I snog them both at the same time?
Probably snog, because they just look kind of normal,
they're not plastered in make-up.
Ah, that's really nice.
I'd marry them if they came as a package.
Previously, 70% of the public wanted to avoid you.
Now, 70% of the public want to snog you
and the other 30% want to marry you.
POD computes that your makeunder has been a complete success.
I think it has.
I think you've definitely done a good job, POD. Well done.
-Thank you. Goodbye. BOTH:
-We're away to meet our friends and also...
-Steven, my boyfriend.
I'm excited to see my girlfriend because I haven't seen her all day
and I'm really looking forward to her new look.
I think that Steven will probably like the natural look.
-He might like it, yeah.
-He hates the fake tan and hair extensions and all that.
We'll wait and see. Fingers crossed.
'I really was surprised at everyone's reaction.'
-They seemed to like it.
-They've been really nice.
Oh, Nina. I love the way you look now. You look so much better.
Really? Ah, thanks!
Hopefully, you'll keep your looks.
We'll wait and see.
Well done, POD.
Good result. Now we're away out to party. Cheers!
Here in the land of the daffodil,
it's not just fake flowers that catch the eye.
There's also what you could call a more organic approach to style,
as I discovered when I hit the Welsh streets.
-Can I ask you a little bit about Cardiff fashion?
Cardiff, yeah, it's totally famous for hair extensions
and nails and a lot of slap.
At least I'm not orange!
You see a lot of strange stuff in Cardiff, especially when you go out.
I'm going the other way. I'm going... Is it grunge?
I'm more grunge, really, I think.
Is this the normal look for men in Wales?
-Er, yeah. On average.
-Maybe a bit more fake tan.
Every day it takes me an hour and a half
to get ready. I won't leave my house without make-up on.
Wild, wicked and definitely Welsh.
I think that just says it all about Welsh girls, to be honest.
I think it needs to be toned down a little bit.
Cardiff in general needs to be toned down?
-Closed off a little bit?
-Well, you said that, not me. I did.
Next up is a guy who's all fur coat and no knickers.
Let's hope POD can cover him up and keep them him from catching a cold.
Hiya. I'm Ryan Watson and I am "da one".
If I met me and I wasn't me, I'd find me so annoying.
This 12-year-old last week came up to me and went,
"Are you a boy or a girl?"
I think Ryan's look is absolutely horrendous.
This morning, I was driving in the car and I looked out of the corner of my eye
and I thought, "What the hell is that?"
Then I realised it was Ryan. I thought, "Oh, my God."
I've had this look for about a year.
I just love fur. It's the way that it feels. It feels nice and soft.
This is going to sound really odd but having a dead animal on me
makes me feel better.
People who don't like wearing fur, most of them are hypocrites
because they'll eat meat and they'll have, like, a leather settee,
but they'll whinge about wearing fur.
I speak to Ryan every single day.
He's like one of my best girlfriends.
Oh, it's gone cold.
That's his tattoo because he's looking for "da one".
Looking for "da one". Not the one right now, "da one".
When he goes out, he does get a lot of male attention.
He does pull a lot of men that have actually got girlfriends.
I think POD will help me because if I look more natural,
I might attract the right sort of people,
as opposed to the wrong sort of people that I attract now.
I would love him to have a makeunder so he'd look more boyish
and not, you know, so much like a girl.
Hi, baby. AKA, POD.
If you can't make me look less like a girl, you can do one.
Ryan is clearly a great fake but when it comes to his fur,
he's keeping it real. I think I need to find out why.
-Hi, Cruella de Vil. How are you?
-I'm all right.
-What is this?
-It's a fur coat.
-What kind of fur?
Is it really fox? You've killed a little foxy.
Do you get bad reactions from people though?
-People don't like it that it's fur but...
-You don't care.
No, why would I?
Yeah, but you could wear a woolly hat and a pair of gloves,
a nice scarf, nice Puffa jacket, like Bianca out of Eastenders.
I'd genuinely rather die.
So why are you coming to POD for a makeunder?
To try and look more natural, so I can find "da one".
Is that what you're having trouble with, finding your fella?
-Finding da one. Yeah.
-Ryan, I've got a little quiz for you.
-Because you're so fond of wearing other animals...
..I wondered if you'd be able to tell me what bit of your body
we could make into this particular accessory. OK?
What part of you would make the best handbag?
My face because it would be leathery in, like, 10 years.
What about a belt? Probably my back because it's got no hair on.
No-one wants a hairy belt.
-What about a hat?
-Oh, my hair!
-We could just have a purple fringing on it.
There's nothing more for me to say other than, POD awaits.
I know, I'm excited for it. Maybe it'll help me find "da one".
-I am POD, the Personal Overhaul Device. Who are you?
Ryan? That's a boy's name. Do people ever get confused?
People say, like, "You look like you could be a very pretty girl."
-Is that a fake fur coat you've got on?
-No, it's real.
-You seem quite happy about that.
-Yeah, I am. I like it.
You're happy that some poor, furry animal has died
so that you could have a silly fashion coat?
Yeah. He was a fox and he liked eating chickens and stuff anyway.
-Hm. I've got a surprise for you.
-Yeah, what is it, POD?
-Fur ain't cool, fool. Fur ain't cool, fool.
Fur ain't cool, fool.
How do you feel about my friends here?
I don't like them. I'm not going to lie.
Why have you come to POD for a makeunder?
Because I'm looking for "da one". Do you know what I'm saying?
-No. What on earth do you mean?
-Like my soulmate.
-Oh, the one?
Yeah, "da one"!
POD would like to know who you dream of being the one.
Johnny Depp but in Pirates Of The Caribbean.
So your dream date would be to have dinner with Captain Jack on the Black Pearl
Yeah. Oh, wait. I'm sure that ship's, like, proper minging.
Maybe a nice version of that ship, like Titanic.
POD computes that Titanic would not be an ideal place for a first date.
-Talking about sinking ships,
shall we find out what the public think of your look?
No, let's not find out!
Run phase one, public analysis.
I asked the public would they want to snog, marry or avoid this boy.
What do you think they said?
I would avoid him because he kind of looks orange and I think
if he touched me, he'd stain me.
I probably would stain their clothes so they're probably right to say avoid.
I would avoid him because he's got lots of make-up on.
Not that much on.
I would avoid. This guy's eyebrows are orange, which is not on.
Oh, my God! Where did you find these people?
In fact, 100% of the public do indeed want to avoid you.
Are you ready to hear POD's verdict?
I suppose, yeah. I am ready to hear it.
POD computes you need my:
Yeah, you're pretty right, maybe. Kind of.
-Run phase two, deep cleanse.
Remove all of your excess baggage.
Take it off.
Now hold up that wipe. Ryan, is that a lot of make-up?
Run the makeunder in three, two, one...
Oh... I look well different. I proper like it.
POD computes that now you look like a very handsome young man.
-As opposed to a slightly odd-looking girl.
Is this look the sort of look you think will help you attract the one?
Maybe. Maybe I'm going to find "da one"!
Should we find out? I asked the public, would they like to
snog, marry or avoid you looking like this.
-What do you think they said?
I'd snog this person cos he's really cute. Got nice hair.
Urgh! That's cute.
I'd snog him because his picture looks relatively cute.
That's very cute.
I would definitely snog him. He's dead cute,
dead short, like I definitely love.
Yeah, really I want to snog him!
Oh, that's cute!
How does it feel to know that everyone thinks you look cute?
I think it's cute that people think I look cute.
Previously, everyone wanted to avoid you.
Now 90% of the public wants to snog you.
POD computes that this makeunder has been a complete success.
-Yeah, I agree.
We're just going to meet Shauny and Imogen to reveal my new look.
Oh, I can't wait to see him!
I'm really excited to see Ryan.
I'm really intrigued. I've not seen him look manly since I was at secondary school.
-Can I look?
-Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
-Oh, my God, you look... Oh, my God!
-I like it.
I don't think he thought he could look like a boy again, but he looks lovely.
-You look like a boy!
-How'd they get you so pale?
That's my natural skin colour!
-That's what I look like!
-Have they not painted you white?
They really liked it. Obviously, they noticed that I don't have a real tan. Pale skin.
-You look normal. You don't look like...
-As opposed to?!
-You didn't look like your average boy before, did you?
-I'm not your average boy.
I think POD has done an absolutely amazing job.
We've got Ryan back again, and not a girl.
Oh, you're going to get so much better attention now.
Just got to date after this, ain't I?
With Ryan's new look, it seems he could be well on the way
to meeting "da one",
and though he's no Johnny Depp, at least it's a start!
Hi, POD. Thanks for my makeunder. Love the hair, love the clothes,
but my eyebrows might make a reappearance!
Earlier, POD transformed two sisters from Scotland who
kept on being mistaken for twins, but am I seeing double now?
-No, I'm not! You look very different.
Obviously we're not dressed identical today,
so, yeah, we're a wee bit unique now.
Does it feel weird not wearing the same things?
Yeah, it does, but we kind of like it.
Yeah, we've got our own individual look now.
What did your friends and family make of your makeunder?
My boyfriend was really over the moon.
He loved it, and he wanted me to keep the look, keep the dress, the natural look.
So why do you think he liked it so much, then?
It was the real me, you know, underneath all the fake tan,
hair extensions and caked in make-up,
and he said I really don't need it all, so it was nice.
So do you think the dolly look's been put to bed a little bit?
Slightly, yeah, cos obviously we're not as dolled up as we were the first time.
But we went back to the fake tan and a bit of the bling.
-A BIT of the bling?!
-They're like killer Frisbees or something.
Now, have you got a final message for POD?
Thanks for the makeunder, POD.
But you'll never take the glam away from us.
-I think POD's lost this one, hasn't she?
-She has, in a way.
-In a way.
We're almost done for the day, but we couldn't say goodbye
without letting POD breathe fire over some of Wales' dodgiest dragons.
Hi, POD. Let us in!
-Can you describe your style to POD?
-I look rough today, actually, I think.
-POD agrees with you.
-Why do you look like a strumpet?
-A Victorian prostitute.
POD would like to know who is the hottest out of the two of you.
-It's obviously me, no offence.
-I'll agree. He's the hottest. Yes.
POD computes you're the colour of a basketball.
-That's not a bad thing, though.
Earlier, we saw POD transform Ryan,
who seemed happier in dead animal skin than in his own skin.
But is he in dead fox today?
-No, he's not, because he's in a cardigan!
-Is it your granddad's?
-No, it's mine!
-It's very nice.
-That's better than the fur.
Do you think you're going to go back to wearing the fur?
It's summer now. When it's winter maybe.
-Then you'll cross that moral bridge.
-What have your friends and family said about all this?
-They've all really liked it,
and people that said that they really liked purple hair
seemed to be like, "Do you not actually like it?
-I was like, "Nice one!"
-Oh, so they were lying the whole time?
Has it had any good repercussions so far, this new look?
-I've got a boyfriend! Potentially "da one".
-If you get married, will you invite POD?
-Can I come?
-Course you can, baby!
-Can I be a bridesmaid?
Um, you might have to, you know, put a bit more tan on.
-So, Ryan, do you have a final message for POD?
-Yeah, I do.
Thanks, baby, for helping me find potentially "da one".
Did you just call POD baby?!
-Yeah, she likes it.
-I don't think she does like it.
-Come in, Ellie.
-You look a bit miserable.
I am. I feel all lonely because Cher's been taken out of my head.
You were warned that those extensions were coming out, Ellie.
I feel so lonely without her now!
But weren't they uncomfortable?
Well, a little bit, I suppose, when I took them out.
What else did you find out for me today?
There are lots of very friendly people in Cardiff.
Quite a lot of them do have hair extensions.
So have we put a stop to hair fakery in Cardiff?
I think we have rescued Cardiff, which means I'm going to go off
and tend to my sore bald spots, and you can POD off.
Subtitles by Red Bee Media Ltd
In Cardiff, Ellie discovers why Welsh girls love hair extensions, and POD goes into overdrive with two mega makeunders. First up are a pair of Barbie wannabes who have turned sisterhood into an un-classy act. Then it's Ryan, a fox fur-wearing burger-flipper from Lancashire who gets mistaken for a girl. Can POD turn them both back into natural beauties?
