I saw a work out machine on television. If I buy one of them, will I be able to achieve the look that those models have?

In brief: No

Never.They are models! it is their profession to stay in perfect shape and they work very hard at it by exercising (using more than just the machine, surely) and dieting with careful food choices.
Remember, an ad on tv is just that, they are trying to sell you something. That's not to say that the machine wouldn't help you get in shape, but you would have to use it with disciplined regularity.

In brief: TV ads

Probably not. Those ads often present unrealistic body images.
