Why Do The ‘Botched’ Docs Call This Season The ‘Craziest’ One Yet? Two Words: Pubic. Hair. (EXCLUSIVE)
They’re back! Everyone’s favorite plastic surgeons, Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif, return for the new season of Botched and viewers can expect “very international, very unique, and the craziest” cases they have seen yet! (And they have pretty much seen everything.)
So, what makes this season different than previous ones? For one, it’s going to be funnier. “This season, you’re going to laugh more, you’re also going to see people who have, for example, an eyebrow transplant with pubic hair. So, you’re going to see a lot more of the crazy, crazy situations that still Terry and I get surprised every time we meet these people,” Dr. Nassif exclusively told Life & Style. Um, excuse me — pubic hair on your eyebrows?! We are speechless.
“Patients did a lot of things to themselves this season. Like we had a patient who stabbed themselves with a needle that a doctor told them to rupture their breast implants because it would be cheaper because their breast implants would be warranted, or a patient with skin cancer who got some internet homeopathic remedies and burned a hole in their nose,” Dr. Dubrow explained.
The doctors reveal that it may seem like they have seen every kind of patient, but they are still continuously taken aback each season. “We are constantly getting surprised and that is what is great about our show and that is why people love watching it,” Dr. Nassif said.
One of the other things that sticks out to them about the upcoming season is that they are actually seeing a lot of “dogs biting people’s faces and noses” and the patients are “using different types of treatment on their own.” They even had to reconstruct a patient’s nose from Canada!
While Dr. Nassif didn’t want to give away too much, he did say, “We will just say that it involves the CIA. Or, an ex-member of the CIA.” LOL, what?! We can’t wait to see what happens.
At the end of the day though, the docs get to do what they love and help people at the same time. “We are damn lucky and this is why we want this — we want Botched to keep on going because we love this opportunity,” Dr. Nassif confessed.
Dr. Dubrow added, “Paul and I have known each other for over 20 years and so we have a great friendship and we have a great admiration for each other — not only as human beings but honestly, as surgeons.”
We love their banter and can’t wait to see what’s to come!
Be sure to watch the season five premiere of Botched tonight at 9 p.m. on E!
