Just when you thought ideas for reality shows were nearing an end, along comes the announcement of a new reality dating series ‘More to Love,’ scheduled to air on Fox.
Some call ‘More to Love’ a juxtaposition of ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Biggest Loser,’ both of which are very popular among reality show viewers.
“For six years it’s been skinny-minis and good-looking bachelors, and that’s not what the dating world looks like,” said Fox president of alternative entertainment Mike Darnell to the Hollywood Reporter. “Why don’t real women—the women who watch these shows, for the most part—have a chance to find love too?”
Personally, though I do not enjoy dating shows, I think the reality dating series ‘More to Love’ will be a success for a couple of reasons: People will identify with contestants who look like everyday people, and many television fans are tired of seeing the rich, glamorous and wealthy living high on the hog when they are struggling from paycheck to paycheck.
