TV show description:
This very much follows the dating reality show format set originally by The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and in fact all three shows have been created by Mike Fleiss. The main difference in this show is that, instead of showcasing only thin people, it showcases both a bachelor and bachelorettes that are all plus size.
Plus-sized supermodel Emme serves as host. The bachelor starts the show by giving promise rings out to twenty ladies, the promise being not to judge them by their size. As with The Bachelor, the ladies come from every walk of life, from across the country, and are in their 20s or 30s. They have careers such as waitress, teacher, and lawyer.
Each week, the bachelor has a series of dates with the ladies in order to help him narrow down the field. Sometimes the dates are group dates with him taking out several women at once, and sometimes they are solo dates, one-on-one. At the end of each series of dates, the bachelor needs to decide who to keep and who to send home. Each girl turns in her ring prior to the ceremony and hopes that she gets it right back.
By the end of the season, the bachelor selects just one lady as the winner and can choose to propose to her if he wishes.
