Coming to Fox: More to Love

at . Comments

This season, fans of reality TV were treated to the first backstabbing Bachelor.

Are they now ready for a plus-sized Bachelor?

Fox is developing More to Love, a dating series that will follow a similar format to The Bachelor. The only difference? It will feature a larger lead man, as he attempts to woo several overweight suitors.

"This is a dating show that sends the right message about embracing and loving yourself no matter your shape or size," said Mike Fleiss, creator of The Bachelor. "When you are comfortable with your own body, you can really allow yourself to be open to the possibility of finding the right person to love."

Jason Mesnick was a picture perfect Bachelor. The same won't be said for the lead on More to Love.

The network is currently casting "eligible plus-sized men and women ready to jump into the experience of a lifetime." The show is scheduled to premiere in the fall.

"This is the first dating competition show in television history that reflects what most real single men and women look like, which makes it instantly relatable to the vast majority of people in the dating pool," said Fox reality chief Mike Darnell.
