My Strange Addiction

TLC's human shockfest My Strange Addiction returns for a fifth season on New Year's Day with the one-hour special I'm A Living Doll, which explores the lives of three people who undergo radical plastic surgery, extreme diets and other appearance-altering means in order to look like human dolls.

The special premieres Jan. 1 at 9/8c, followed by two more new episodes at 10/9c. Among the stories explored: A woman who dresses up like a pony every day; a single mother who drinks paint; two identical twins who haven't been apart for more than 30 minutes in 20 years; and a 26-year-old who eats mattresses, consuming a total of eight beds in the past 20 years.

My Strange Addiction continues on Jan. 8 at 10/9c with cases including a 33-year-old man who has spent $100,000 on plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber; a woman who chews on dirty diapers; a man who's hooked on leeches; and a woman who eats an entire palate of eye shadow in one sitting. Who's hungry?

Here's a first look at the new season of My Strange Addiction.
