Bad Idea of the Week: "I Want to Look Like a High School Cheerleader Again"

Bad Idea of the Week: "I Want to Look Like a High School Cheerleader Again"

I'm all for people changing their looks and lifestyles on TV. I'm a "What Not to Wear" disciple, and come fall, I'll be cheering on "The Biggest Loser" contestants right alongside Fit. But something about this new CMT reality show is just rubbing me the wrong way.

Called "I Want to Look Like a High School Cheerleader Again," the show will take 10 former high school cheerleaders and try to get them to fit into their old uniforms again with the help of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders trainer Jay Johnson. The winner will get $50,000 and "the chance to perform again in front of a live audience."

Once again: health and fitness = good. But the idea of adults aiming to be high school cheerleaders again — complete with kicky little pleated skirt and a public performance — makes me feel queasy. It reminds me a little too much of the "girls jumping on trampolines" feature from "The Man Show," and I'm not loving the message that grown women should aspire to look, dress and feel like adolescents.

Am I being too harsh? I understand the producers' point that every former athlete longs to recapture that energy and verve. But I'm not sure this particular fountain of youth is one we should be dipping into.
