* ShaggyDogStory: Some contestants get dragged in only for POD to decide they don't need a make-under and eject them.

* ShaggyDogStory: Some contestants get dragged in only for POD to decide they don't need a make-under and eject them. Most of these are really "out of this world" types.

* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: One could argue that POD is trying to do this, albeit in a very snarky way. A few contestants on the show have proven this trope, clearly using their over-the-top makeup to compensate for a lack of self-esteem.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: You will see plenty of half-naked women and plenty of shots of them getting ready. Unfortunately it's normally with them caked in make-up and rubbing a lot of fake tan on themselves.
* FashionDissonance: A lot of the "after" outfits POD picks. '''Especially''' for the men.

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentalAesop: You should of course strive to make complete strangers want to marry you from a first glance. Forget about getting to know someone and all that nonsense.


Added DiffLines:

* BitchAlert: POD of course. Averted with Jenny and Ellie.


Added DiffLines:

* ImportantHaircut: POD attempts to invoke this in the makeovers. Sometimes it works and sometimes not.

* CosmeticCatastrophe: And how!



* OfCorsetsSexy: Plenty of girls love to wear corsets. POD naturally puts a stop to it.



* ShesGotLegs



** {{Barbie}} gets a lot as well.
* UncannyValleyMakeup: Twin sisters from Wales who described themselves as "twin Barbie dolls". Their make-up literally made them look like they were made of plastic.

* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: A lot of girls go for lots of glittery make-up and outfits, which POD is not happy about. She actually gave in in one episode and gave a girl back some of her glittery eye shadow.
* FemmeFatalons: One girl who had insanely long pink nails and her background data listed plenty of her uses for them. She wasn't even able to cut through them with scissors on the first attempt.



* GirlyBruiser: The female weight lifter who described herself as GI Barbie. She indeed wore a pink sparkly costume.



* RedBaron: A lot of girls give themselves titles such as "Chloe Mafia", "Lucy Roxy", "Gemma Levai"...you get the picture.

* RuleOfThree: Three contestants per episode, usually three people asked the question in the polls.
* ShaggyDogStory: Some contestants get dragged in only for POD to decide they don't need a make-under and eject them.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: POD does like to make some of the girls look less like teenagers and more like grown women.


Added DiffLines:

* SpikyHair: Mark from the first episode who described his spikes as his crown. Even POD didn't want to go near them.


Added DiffLines:

* VanityIsFeminine: Majority of contestants are girls but this is portrayed as a negative thing. POD tries to stop girls from excessively taking care of their appearance.

''Snog, Marry, Avoid?'' is a British TV beauty show presented by former Music/AtomicKitten Jenny Frost (Ellie Henderson from season 5 onwards). In each episode Jenny rounds up three guests, usually female but sometimes men will be chosen as well (sometimes celebrities as well). These guests are chosen for their addiction to "fakery" - i.e. excessive make-up, hair extensions, false tan - and their poor taste in going out clothes. The guests are put in front of POD - the Personal Overhaul Device. POD verbally tears each guest down and shows them a video poll of men on the street saying whether they would Snog, Marry or Avoid them (spoiler: they always say "Avoid"). After hearing that the public hates their look, the guest undergoes a "make-under" and are given a so-called 'natural beauty' look. They are then shown another poll where the public now says they would either Snog or Marry them. Jenny meets up with the guest three months later to see whether or not they've kept up their new look.

Added DiffLines:

* AllAmazonsWantHercules: The female weight lifter on the show was indeed engaged to a fellow weight lifter who was more jacked than she was.


Added DiffLines:

* DarkSkinnedBlonde: A common ingredient for the subjects - bleached blonde hair coupled with a really dark fake tan.


Added DiffLines:

* GagBoobs: One Welsh mother who actually had hers done a year before her appearance on the show. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Cue Jenny singing Happy Birthday to the girl's chest]].


Added DiffLines:

* HotMom: A few of the girls actually.


Added DiffLines:

* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: Naturally all the men wanted to avoid the female weightlifter before her make-under. Notable in her "after" outfit, the clothes covered her muscles.

Added DiffLines:

* AllMenArePerverts: According to the show, men only exist to ogle women and to judge whether or not they're marriage material.


Added DiffLines:

* BroughtDownToNormal


Added DiffLines:

* MakeoverMontage: Inverted. The "before" look is usually preceded by a montage of the subject getting ready (and showing how excessive it normally is) while the Make-Under is actually instantaneous.
* RapunzelHair: A lot of the girls strive for this but it's normally via extensions so POD tries to put a stop to it.
* RedBaron: A lot of girls give themselves titles such as "Chloe Mafia", "Lucy Roxy", "Gemma Levai"...you get the picture.
* ShoutOut: POD is very reminiscent of the computer from ''2001: A Space Odyssey''.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeAThirdOption: Some subjects keep their new look, some revert to their original look. Others keep elements of both that they liked.
