Fox’s overweight dating show preview is surprisingly bland
The reality wizards at Fox will soon bring us More to Love, a dating series with overweight people that debuts July 28. While Fox is great at announcing reality shows that sound controversial, the results frequently suck, and that may be the case here.
A short preview, below, was released today, and it reveals a show that looks surprisingly unoffensive and even pretty dull. With interviews featuring contestants talking about how being fat affects their lives, it may even be a tiny bit heartwarming or educational.
Since the series is from the creator of The Bachelor, it makes sense that it looks exactly like the ABC series, except with plus-size sumpermodel Emme hosting instead of Chris Harrison, larger people, and based on the preview, zero drama. But since the drama is pretty much the only reason to watch The Bachelor, that’s unfortunate.
