Did you catch the newest “reality TV” craze? More to Love is the plus-sized answer to the Bachelor. The premise is that the average American woman is a size fourteen. The average woman on a reality TV program is a size two. “More to Love” to the rescue! Our bachelor (not called the bachelor in this program because that would be stealing), is truly a cutie-pie. His name is Luke, 26 years old, 330 pounds and a successful six figure income. He is super friendly, attentive, and frankly, very eager. I am not sure if he is eager to find love, that remains to be seen, but he is certainly eager to spend the next several weeks locked in a beautiful mansion with twenty gorgeous girls all competing for his attention!
I haven’t seen a man have this much fun in a long time. In his defense, the girls are putting on a great act of enjoying the experience as well. I just keep feeling that for the most part the women seem uncomfortable and a occasionally miserable. There was a lot of crying, and several of the ladies were talking about how they thought this might be their last chance at love. One claimed to have never been on a date because men wouldn’t look past her size. Those parts of the show are a bit hard to watch as you are witnessing the real pain these women are suffering. It makes me concerned that the show will take an even more “Bachelor”-like turn and begin to use sex as a tool of manipulation on this show. I think there are several of the girls who simply couldn’t take being used that way.
They are all lovely girls, most seem very capable and talented. All of them have fabulous hair, great smiles, and a real willingness to put themselves out there. So, why are they having trouble meeting men? Why are they resorting to being on a television program to find love? I find myself hoping that some are just trying to get noticed by the Hollywood crowd!
For me, the biggest wrong the producers of the show are committing is that they are posting the weights of each girl when she comes on screen. Across the bottom, under the girl while she is talking and being interviewed, they post her name, occupation, and weight. Yep, weight. For all of America to see. I really don’t understand the purpose. I mean, after all, is it that they are assuming we are all too stupid to see that these girls have a little More to Love? We are never presented with the weight of the gals on the Bachelor.
I keep searching the channels for a television show to really be what it claims to be. More to Love claims to be all about seeing past the physical package of the contestants, as it broadcasts the physical measurements of the contestants. Dirty trick if you ask me, what do you think?
