What do you think about this new bachelor show, "More to Love"?

Asked by Facade (22884points) July 13th, 2009

I guess it’s good that the people aren’t models. But it’s supposed to feature “real women.” Since when does “real” equal 230lbs? It seems as though you either have to be a size 00 or a size 26W to be on a television show.

What’s your take on this (if you have one)?

I don’t like the title. It offends me as I have some “more to love”.

I don’t really like bachelor shows, they are always just about women fighting and making a fool of themselves on television for some guy they don’t even like.

@Tink1113 that’s what makes them reality tv

@eponymoushipster I know I just don’t like them

It seems weird to me to have a dating show with only overweight people just like it would be weird to have a dating show with exclusively Korean people.

Facade's avatar

They have dating shows with only white people.

@Facade Yes I’ve seen the bachelor.

I don’t watch reality shows, mainly because they are far from reality, but yeah, big women need leave too.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Facade yeah, at least Flava Flav is willing to take white skanks, too. lol

@eponymoushipster That was the most ridiculous show…

My husband and I found the concept offensive
he said it might as well have been called ‘hubby for chubby’ or ‘handles of love’ or ‘chunky for hunky’

You would pretty much have to hold a gun to my head to make me what any reality tv.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir I bet they thought they were being clever

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Facade why? i think someone pooping on the stairs is how most people are hooking up these days.

@Simone – I assume you feel the same way about Dance Your Ass Off!?

What’s funny @syz is that that’s the next reality show. It’s called, “Watch my Show or I Pull the Trigger”.

Anyway, as a fellow porkchop, with matching wife, I find the concept as stupid as most reality shows. I take no offense. They are certainly pandering and are not as clever as they think.

If they want real people, they need a mix of races and sizes.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir And about “the biggest loser”?

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@eponymoushipster one of these things is not like the other…I watch that show sometimes, which is saying something

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir exactly the same to me. sad people getting their 15min on tv.

dannyc's avatar

I think I won’t be watching.

“More to Love”... Because fat people are people too.

But barely.
