New Dating Show Mixes Elements Of Bachelor, Biggest Loser

A competitive dating series featuring overweight and “average-looking” contestants is slated to air on Fox, according the Hollywood Reporter.

The show, called More To Love, will be based on a format similar to The Bachelor, where a group of women vie for the affections of a man.

“For six years it’s been skinny-minis and good-looking bachelors, and that’s not what the dating world looks like,” Fox president of alternative Mike Darnell, who said The Biggest Loser‘s success proves the public has interest in people. “Why don’t real women — the women who watch these shows, for the most part — have a chance to find love too?”

The show’s producer, Mike Fleiss (The Bachelor), told the paper why he thinks its formula will be successful.

“Most of the country isn’t a Size 2,” he said. “It’s the dating show for the rest of us.” (Photo: WENN)
