This U.S. couple first hit TV screens because of their unusual appearance. A friend had nominated them for a much-needed makeover, but no one could have expected the results to be quite so dramatic. Years afterwards, though, their story took a tragic turn.
Tim and Wendy White were a married couple who unexpectedly found themselves having their 15 minutes of fame way back in 2003. They ended up appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show after they were nominated by a friend.
There was something about the pair, who had been married for 12 years, that made them stand out from the crowd. They were by no means a conventional couple; you could tell that just by looking at them. In fact, it was their outward appearance that set them apart from the rest.
