How come all the average or geeky or supposed not beautiful people in television, or more specifically in tween TV shows are actually above average looks wise. Basically the “non-beautiful” people are beautiful. I was watching this show with my kids on Disney channel and these two “average” girls were talking about this ‘model” girl and how beautiful and perfect she was (and they weren’t) when in actuality they were both impeccably groomed, well dressed in stylish clothing and beautiful and thin and in real life would probably be considered above average beauty. I wonder if subconsciously young girls see those beautiful girls pick themselves apart as not being beautiful and perfect (when in really they are stunning) that they see that even beautiful people aren’t beautiful enough or worthy of low self-image? Then how are non actors supposed to feel about themselves when these actors aren’t the beautiful ones? How are they supposed to begin to measure up… seems to be counterproductive and catty and really, what’s the point?
Dear writers of tween shows: please do better.
