Coming Soon: Dating Show for People With "More to Love" - March 30th 2009, 11:35 PM

Quote:
(Newser) – Fox is producing a “dating show for the rest of us” featuring average-looking and average-size female contestants competing for the love of an ample “Kevin James-type,” the Hollywood Reporter reports. Titled More to Love, it was inspired by the success of Bachelor and The Biggest Loser, which challenged the industry assumption that TV viewers only wanted to watch beautiful people.
“Most of the country isn't a Size X,” a producer said. “We want to send the message that you can be the size you are and still be lovable.” The show is now in casting, and no air date has been set.

It's about time something like this happens, honestly. I plan on watching it.

Aw yay. That sounds like a good show.I'll watch it.
Its good to hear that society is looking at people that weigh more than like XX pounds. Maybe it will help demolish the view of being anorexically skinny.
I'm happy for the people,and I hope they find the love they deserve.

It's nice to hear that the media is finally seeing that looking like a stick isn't beauty. And that the rest of the world, that loo and weigh normal amounts need some air time. This will be interesting, I might watch.

It's cheap and gets them good press. In turn it will be replaced

I still don't see reality TV getting realer, just because of the nature of the media.. I mean people act different on camera especially when they know it's a national broadcast. I guess the people will look.. more genuine and that will make people feel better, but I don't think it will either last long, or seem convincing to me.

I reckon it will just look even more fake than the shows with all the "perfect" people on. Reality and dating shows are all the same in my opinion, pretty much a scam.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

No, they like watching pretty things & freak shows... Any guess about which this will be?

I'm not offending anyon, I just think all those dating shows I've seen so far are such BS...

Yes, its awesome that they're including the 'normal' folks, but really, I would never want to find love on a dating show.... it would seem too fixed.
