Why people love watching videos of pimples being popped is one of the greatest mysteries of our time. What’s clear is that people do love it. Dr. Pimple Popper, the YouTube personality of dermatologist Sandra Lee, has earned over 3 million subscribers. Now, these fans will be able to catch blackhead, whitehead, and cyst removals in high def, because TLC is about to launch a Dr. Pimple Popper show.
This Is Zit premieres on January 3 at 10 P.M. ET, according to its Facebook page. It’ll feature Lee removing an epidermoid cyst, which pops up when skin has “turned under and formed a little sac” resembling oatmeal, a hard boiled egg, or wet newspaper. So weird. So…fascinating.
“Isn’t it absolutely fascinating what comes out of our skin?” she asks in another video for the series. Yes. Yes, it is. And we can’t stop watching.
