While Jillian Harris decides between two - or possibly three - suitors tonight on The Bachelorette, Luke Conley is ready to start his journey toward a soulmate tomorrow.
The large 26-year old stars in More to Love, a dating series that focuses on an oversized man and the women that fight for his affection.
In an interview with People, Conley previews the series. Here are a few excerpts from the conversation:
On concerns over the show: I was concerned the main premise of the show was to poke fun. It seemed like everyone had to be talked into it for that same reason. But it’s legitimate. The desire of the show is for two people to make a sincere connection. It just so happens that they’re not size 2 models.
On signing on for the series: I tend to be a thrillseeker. I have an open heart to try and meet someone special, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited about the experience and all the fun things I would get to do on the show. I‘m not looking to rush into [marriage]. If I met someone special, it would take time to develop that relationship and settle down.
On dating on camera: I tried to think of it as a cool guy hanging out with you on the date. But even that can be weird in an intimate moment especially [because I'm] wary of public displays of affection. It got steamy. I had to get over the fact that there are people in the room when you’re making out in a hot tub in front of all these people.
