If you're already a fan of shows like The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, you might want to give More to Love a try. After all, it's basically the same show with curvier contestants. Opulent mansion? Check. Overly dramatic outdoor lighting? Check. Catty women? Check. Prospective dates pulling up in limousines, embarrassing conversations about romance, and awkward PDA? Check, check, and check.

Based on the guilty-pleasure popularity of reality dating shows -- with women especially -- More to Love might find an audience. (And who knows? It might even spawn a spin-off with a plus-sized bachelorette.) But aside from its sometimes-overbearing focus on weight, it doesn't really add anything new to the genre. It means well, but it loses points for things like posting how much participants weigh alongside their name, age, and occupation. After all, if who we are inside is what's truly important, why is that necessary?
