Then in comes More to Love, failing with its “good intentions.” A hefty man himself, Luke the Bachelor loves meaty women and hopes to find love in this plus-sized batch. And if you can’t tell these women are that just by looking at them, the show’s got you covered: each woman’s stats appear on the screen whenever she talks to the camera. Way to promote that size does not matter, guys.
Each episode is filled with waterworks as the ladies recount their tales of insensitive men who couldn’t see past their weight. Of dateless proms and lonely existences.
But now there was hope in Luke who’s come to their rescue! He makes them feel special, loved, sexy, wanted. Honestly, the way these women have placed that man on a pedestal is a bit disturbing. They want so much to be accepted that many of them fail to realize that their happiness doesn't/shouldn't lie in someone else – especially not on a dating show! (They also don’t seem to care that Darling Luke is kissing up on one chick soon after cuddling with another. Ew.)
The diamond ring (instead of roses) that each contestant receives also seems cruel to me. I bet they’ve each dreamed of getting married someday, but have trouble believing it can fully happen for them. They live and die by those rings with each passing elimination ceremony.
And you know damn well he’s not proposing to anybody once the show’s over.
Give me Flavor of Love over this any day. At least those women were straight up crazy. Toying around with emotional, insecure women with serious body issues is just wrong.
And yet for some reason I’ll still be watching…Image: pursedlips.net
