Feet are one of those things that sort of polarize people.
I mean, not the fact that feet are excellent modes of transportation and we’re all very fond of what they do for us on a daily basis. But when it comes to like, how you feel about other people’s feet.
Some can’t stand them – to look at them, touch them, whatever.
Others have full-blown fetishes. You can find this in pretty much every corner of the internet.
Now, TLC is betting on the fact that fascination with weird medical stuff (see also: Dr. Pimple Popper) will carry their new reality show, My Feet Are Killing Me, to the top of the ratings.
The show debuted on January 2nd, 2020, and follows foot surgeons Dr. Ebonie Vincent and Dr. Brad Schaeffer and the more interesting cases that show up in their offices. The patients featured on the series present with problems that range from warts and fungus to those that require surgical intervention.
Like Dr. Pimple Popper, the cable network isn’t pulling any punches on showing what most of us would agree is too much information – you’re gonna get graphic detail – so this isn’t a show you’re going to want to watch while you eat dinner. But while it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, they’re probably right that enough people’s morbid fascination with all things medical will probably trump the ick factor.
I guess we’ll just have to tune in and see.
I mean…I’m not going to watch it. You’ll have to tell me what you think.
