Dr Pimple Popper, Sandra Lee, has quite the following as she squeezes and pops oozing lumps and sores on an array of patients in her office. It seems this TLC show captured the attention of viewers for many reasons. Now, there’s a new trend among watchers of Dr Pimple Popper – called “popaholics”.
But when Dr Pimple Popper gets going, many watchers have to look away. But not Dr Sandra Lee. The bubbly doctor goes in after that growth and literally slices, digs and squeezes it out of the host’s body. It’s cringe-worthy but highly watchable.
Dr Pimple Popper: Sandra Lee Squeezes, Pinches, and Pops
It seems TLC found a niche with a couple of doctor series lately, both having to do with unwanted growths. Dr Pimple Popper, or Dr Sandra Lee if you prefer, gets rid of growths like cysts and pimples. Then a new show, My Feet Are Killing Me concentrates on… you guessed it – the feet.
So it looks like the network’s covering strange growths on the human body from head to toe. But, both shows come with warnings. Neither Dr Pimple Popper or the foot series are for the squeamish. There’s some graphic stuff appearing on the TV screen.
So, it probably makes sense that these shows air back to back on Thursday nights. Dr Pimple Popper airs a new episode at 9 pm and the foot show follows Sandra Lee at 10 pm. Many of these patients show up in misery – with physical and emotional pain. And, they often leave with a new lease on life.
The recent chatter on Dr Pimple Popper is one of the largest cysts ever seen on the show. It’s on the back of a woman who remains awake through the procedure. This is the stuff that keeps the viewers coming back.
Popaholics Talk Food Over Popping
It seems that watching growths on the body squeezed and popped has spawned a group of people deemed popaholics. Apparently they hop online to discuss the latest sights of the cases seen on the Dr Pimple Popper show.
Many equate the ooky insides of these cysts and pimples to the texture of some common foods. When Sandra Lee targets whiteheads, some fans think it looks like strands of spaghetti. From Cheese Wiz to cream cheese, people can’t help but compare what pops out of these growths to food.
Below, Sandra Lee removes one of the biggest cysts she’s ever worked on. People seem to love watching these procedures. While some seem interested in the medical aspect, others tend to gravitate toward the show for the macabre element of the procedures.
Dr Pimple Popper: Terrified Patient on Next New Episode
This week’s new episode has Sandra Lee taking a good-sized growth off the bicep of a man who’s terrified of doctors. Most of the patients are awake but numbed during Dr Pimple Popper’s procedures. This time, the guy appears to freak out over the thought of what Dr Lee’s about to do to him.
On the previews for this Thursday’s show, Dr Pimple Popper claims she’s got to find a way to calm her patient down. Sandra Lee needs him to dial back his terror before she can remove the growth. Then, another patient wants Sandra to fix the bumps all over her neck.
These growths have left the woman depressed. Then, a man with a “suspicious growth” under his eye sparks concerns for Sandra Lee. Next, another shows up with a lump on his forehead. Tune in to TLC Thursday night at 9 to watch Sandra Lee pop her way through all these patients.
