LOS ANGELES (Reuters Life!) - Mix the dramas leading up to a wedding with extreme plastic surgery and what do you get? A bridal reality TV show in which the final surprise is saved for at the altar.

Cable network E! has announced a new show "Bridalplasty" in which 12 engaged women live in a mansion together and compete in "wedding-themed" challenges to win plastic surgery procedures from each bride's wish list.

Each week one bride-to-be will be voted off until the winning bride reveals her post-op body to her groom at the altar in the finale of the 10-episode series hosted by former Playboy model Shanna Moakler.

"Viewers will witness his emotional and possibly shocked reaction as they stand at the altar and he lifts her veil to see her for the first time following her extreme plastic surgery," the network said of the series that premieres on Nov 28.
