FOX will air The Littlest Groom.

Wouldn’t you love to eavesdrop on the meetings where FOX exces decide what person or group to ridicule/exploit?

Next up for the fine folks at FOX: little people. The Littlest Groom will be a Bachelor-style dating show that features “Glen, a 23-year-old salesman who stands 4-foot-5,” who will “go on a series of group and individual dates with 12 women–also little people–in hopes of finding love,” Zap2it.com reports.

There’s even an Average Joe-style twist: “After Glen eliminates some of the women, the show will bring in women of normal height as well.” Only two episodes will air, starting on Feb. 16–during sweeps, of course.
