Sometimes people can be gullible and all it takes is a really good salesperson who knows how to talk to sell them on anything. This documentary series shows the controversial slimming cream sellers turned con artists, Wanna Marchi and Stefania Nobile, from their TV success to their scam and jail time. The series highlights the lengths that these women went through to make something of themselves after having a tough childhood. These women were resilient and wanted to get to a position where they would feel comfortable. In doing so, they managed to exert their power and change the face of selling items entirely. These women were able to build so much and within seconds it was taken from them.
It’s always interesting to see where people come from and how their journey ends. When greed and power drive the ambition of one person, it can sometimes be problematic. What’s worse is that these women saw nothing wrong with what they were doing. They were just capitalizing on women’s insecurities about body image. Watching how they changed the products and how to sell them was interesting, but the way their story was executed was a bit jarring. It wasn’t engaging because it felt all over the place and you were trying to process what was happening. Knowing that they sold something before it was even a product is what will draw the audience in, but then the episodes drag a bit until the end. For those who have watched the shopping network, this will be a good documentary series to watch to see how some fabricate what they’re selling.
