Slideshow: incredible TV star transformations
Aah, the miracle of make-up and bad wardrobe.
Did you ever catch that episode of The Simpsons where Moe lost out on a role in a soap opera because its producers wanted someone who was "'TV ugly', not 'ugly ugly'"? Even if you never saw it, the point is pretty obvious: you can't get a job on television if you're actually a fugmo.

So what happens when a TV show calls for a fugly character? Simple — find an attractive actor or actress, and fug them up a little bit. The result: homely characters who look super-hot on the red carpet!

TVFIX has conducted a thorough search of small-screen fugmos who are actually incredibly beautiful or jaw-droppingly handsome in real life. Check 'em out in our gallery of incredible TV transformations!
