Dr Pimple Popper reveals that Dr. Sandra Lee probably has the strongest stomach in the world. Not for the squeamish, the TLC show nevertheless appeals to popaholics. And, the show returns on Monday, December 28, at 9 pm ET/PT to the satisfaction of those people.
Dr Pimple Popper – some very gross scenes that only popaholics could enjoy
We reported in April this year, that one episode “grossed people out and one fan claimed it “gives a whole new meaning to head cheese.” And, that’s enough to turn stomachs. In that particular show, this giant cyst thing came out all pussy and stringy. But, fans who enjoy that sort of thing feel both repelled and fascinated at the same time. The BBC UK explains that some people take satisfaction at squeezing and popping pussy pimples.
Why? Well, “Dr Val Curtis, director of the Environmental Health Group (or ‘disgustologist’, as she calls herself) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine explains the purpose of being disgusted – and why we might like it.” It turns out that Dr. Pimple Popper fans probably enjoy watching the show because of their ancient ancestors. In fact, if they felt no fascination, they probably just died out from eating toxic rotten food.
Fascination keeps people alive
If our ancestors just looked without fascination on nasty rotting carcasses and felt nothing, they probably ate them. Not a good idea in the days of no ERs. And, that fascination remains with us today. Which explains why people enjoy looking at traffic accidents. So, the next season on the TLC show promises to keep that necessary fascination alive for our own forthcoming descendants.
Meaww noted that fans already saw a lot of people consult Dr. Sandra Lee. They sent in their cases and Sandra asked a lot of questions. Consulting remotely’s not ideal though. But, plenty of them come in the next season of Dr Pimple Popper. So many, that Dr. Lee brings in some help. That sounds like lots of gross moments await popaholics in the holiday season. In the meantime, you could always pop onto the doctor’s Instagram and satisfy your desire for gross things.
Pussy pops and more on Dr. Lee’s Instagram
Sandra Lee keeps the gross video clips coming on Instagram. On November 5, she shared one of her pricking and popping a pimple behind someone’s earlobe. She captioned it with, “Ever just wished you could find one of these on someone you know? 👀😍TAG your popping buddy!”
And another one that fills in the time until Dr Pimple Popper returns reveals a giant blackhead. One fan said, “I love these types of pops. I love seeing the cavity that is left behind after it has been removed.” Do you love this sort of thing? Sound off in the comments below.
