Oh good old TLC, always bringing us the strangest content. People have an interest in the strange and unusual, as well as a look into the lives of people who live differently than us. There’s a reason there’s been three different series of 90 Day Fiance.
It’s no surprise that dermatologist Sandra Lee and her pimple popping videos grabbed TLC’s attention. Dr. Pimple Popper has been running for four seasons on the network, feeding into everyone’s desire to watch some zits get popped. Dr. Lee originally started on Youtube with videos of her clients with their written permission.
The phenomenon around pimple popping, while definitely gross sounding, have been a part of the “satisfying” video trend, where people do an action that feels satisfying to a majority of people. Other concepts in this category are when the DVD sleep screen that has the bouncing logo hits the corner, or when someone perfectly cuts an apple into paper-thin slices.
With so many videos on her channel long before she got her TV show, Dr. Lee has a lot of pimple pops under her belt. If you have yet to hop on the trend, season four of Dr. Pimple Popper is airing Thursdays on TLC, but we have some of Dr. Lee’s best pops for you too.
