I'm referring to the show "More to Love", which is, not suprisingly, from FOX. From the blurb on the cover of the current STARWEEK, More To Love is a "new reality show [which] gives hope to plus-sized women who have had a hard time finding a mate".
It does no such thing. Turns out it's a Bachelor-style show where the bachelor in question is 6'3" and over 300 lbs--presumably because they couldn't find a non-obese man who's interested in plus-sized women. He gets to go on dates with a variety of women, some of whom are a size twelve.
If you wear a size twelve, by the way, you're too skinny to shop in Pennington's, Canada's premiere plus-sized chain.
So he goes on a bunch of dates and then selects his prize...humiliating all the women who don't make the cut on national television! What's not to like about that?
As my wife noted when I told her about this show, it might have some redeeming value if it involved a bunch of men--normal men, not ex-NFL linebackers gone to fat--pursuing one woman who (among her many attributes) happened to be plus-sized. That would send a message that there are lots of men out there who don't discount a woman because she's not anorexic. But no, FOX has to go and bollocks it up. Sickening, really.
