Dating show overweight people
Images of impossibly thin models, actresses, and other celebrities saturate popular culture.Perhaps a show about regular sized people could help us all embrace our natural sizes."Going into it, I knew it was a TV show, I knew it was a weight-loss show and I knew it was a dance show, but I didn't think I was going to learn so much about myself through the process," said the 23-year-old Duque, a contestant on the new show "Dance Your Ass Off." "I didn't know how many issues and problems I had with my weight until I faced it on the show." Duque's struggle with weight loss is one of many on television that is resonating with those tuning into programming aimed at and featuring the plus-sized.Style Network's "Ruby," NBC's "The Biggest Loser," Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva" and Fox's forthcoming dating show "More to Love" all center on the overweight and are tapping into an audience that can relate to the desire to shed a few pounds. Working on this basic premise, US cable network Fox is teaming with "The Bachelor" producer Mike Fleiss for a new dating-competition series that casts "average-looking" people.
I guess part of me gets so mad because society tells men that they should be attracted to thin women and never the slightly overweight friend who has to fight to find a decent man.I just think it's so unfair out there in the dating world for us.
