Dr. Pimple Popper is famous for her pimple-popping techniques that are grossly satisfying for people everywhere.
She started her Instagram pimple-popping influencer career when she first posted a blackhead extraction. It got tons of attention so she continued to post similar extractions. When working with a patient named Mr. Wilson, famous for his blackheads being 2-inches long, she decided to post a video on YouTube. Now we know there is a whole community of people who like watching pimple-popping videos.
Dr. Sandra Lee, MD started first with YouTube videos, then a TLC special, and now she has a premiere primetime series.
TONIGHT, Dr. Sandra Lee's new show comes out called Dr. Pimple Popper, which offers a more in-depth version of how her patients are affected by her pimple popping. There will be six, one-hour episodes that will chronicle the lives of patients, their families, and most importantly, their ZITS.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dr. Sandra Lee touches on how the show is much different than her YouTube channel. She says that she enjoys the format of the show as in her videos, "I don’t really see how a bump on someone really affects his or her life. So it’s really nice to see this go full circle."
Dr. Pimple Popper explains that the show will have some of the biggest cases of her career. She enjoys the fact that her videos trick people into learning the warning signs of skin cancer or abnormalities on their own body.
Dr. Pimple Popper premiers TONIGHT 10 p.m. ET.
