I just saw a commercial for a new Fox reality show called More to Love.
It seems to be a Bachelor type show (same creators) for "fluffy" people. A line in the synopsis actually says, "the unscripted series follows a single average guy with a big waist and an even bigger hear as he romances several confident and secure plus-size women..." Really??? Is it necessary to single out larger people to have their own show to find love? They can't do a mixture of all shapes and sizes to create one very dynamic reality show of the sort?
The synopsis continues on with adjectives like: curvy, full figured, husky, and plus-size. I would consider myself a fairly average sized woman and this still pisses me off. The whole concept is completely ridiculous to me. Small people can't love large people and vice versa??
Apparently this show is attempting to send a message that one should embrace his or her size. And to know that regardless of size, he/she can be loved. I am happy to say that I never had a closed mind when it came to a guy's size during my dating experiences. And this show is just closing the doors to all women who are not plus-sized (for this particular bachelor).
The whole concept just blows my mind. Do you have thoughts on the show? Am I way off the mark on my reaction to this show? Do you agree? Leave it in a comment.
