Growing to Hate “More to Love”
The premise of Fox’s More to Love is admirable: plus-sized single guy looks for love among plus-size single ladies. In other words, a beefed up version of the The Bachelor. And really, who doesn’t love The Bachelor?
After watching the first episode, though, I was truly annoyed. It’s not the show’s star, Luke Conley, that bothers me. He seems like a genuinely nice guy who really is attracted to bigger women.
Ahhh…the women. Perhaps it is all because of editing, but I am truly growing to despise these women. It has nothing to do with their weight or the fact that they choose to wear trashy clothes that are several sizes too small. As I’ve said, I’ve watched a lot of reality TV and inappropriate attire on dating shows is like peanut butter with your jelly. I can even stomach the suffocating desperation of single women believing that this man that they have only spoken a few times is truly their soul mate, and that they very well in fact might die of a broken heart if he “chooses to end their journey too soon.”
What I cannot tolerate, however, about the More to Love women is the constant talk about weight, rejection and food. Now granted, I’m not overweight, but I know for a fact that just because one is overweight, this does not mean that all that person talks about is a) what their favorite food is; b) why being overweight is a huge obstacle in their dating life; c) how much it hurt that they didn’t go to their high school prom because they were overweight.
You’re fat. We get it. Now tell us something else about yourself. Give us More to Love about you. Or else pass me the remote.
