No, except for maybe a few gullible people who aren't scientifically informed. Those who spend too much time viewing culture (like MTV) and not enough viewing science (even Bill Nye will do).

Bill Nye makes the forces of Endarkenment tremble.

I guess it's wish fulfillment. You're supposed to believe that the obviously 19 year old model is really 47 or so.
