Episode Premieres Tuesday, May 12 at 10PM ET/PT
New York - May 11, 2009 - It all comes down to the final four contestants in this week's special 2-hour finale of "Pretty Wicked," airing Tuesday, May 12 at 10PM ET/PT. Viewers are in for an explosive week with several extreme challenges, therapeutic exercises and two of the most emotional elimination ceremonies all season. The time has come to determine who has truly made a noticeable transformation and will go home with the $50,000 prize.
In the first hour, the girls must face one of their biggest fears - aging. With the help of computer-generated images, the girls are able to see how they will look at a much older age and their revulsion is apparent. The girls react with disgust as they look at themselves with wrinkles, dark circles and aging spots. But there is a twist! Makeup artists and stylists are hired to transform these young women into the older versions of themselves and get them ready for a night out on the town. While looking almost twenty years older, the girls have to get into a popular nightclub where they must score drinks and digits from at least three men.
Later on that night, the girls experience the most intense elimination ceremony thus far. While the judges deliberate, Ana lets loose on judge Mia Tyler and the room erupts in chaos. Will this harsh outburst affect Ana's chances at winning the competition? One of these girls will be sent home, leaving the final three to compete for the grand prize.
In the last hour, with the help of the judges, the three remaining contestants take a look back at themselves from the start of the competition to see who they are now. In a shocking turn of events, the remaining girls must individually meet with the judges and are in for the surprise of their lives. The girls encounter some key people from their pasts who have been brought to the loft to confront the girls head-on in an attempt to salvage their relationships.
In a final and touching reckoning ceremony, the three remaining girls are asked to reflect on their journey since coming to the loft. Each girl talks about their transformation in an effort to prove themselves to the judges one last time. As the judges go into the last deliberation, the girls anxiously await the final outcome. Tune-in to see who has made the biggest change toward complete inner beauty!
