VH1 Searches for Fat Single Females for Reality Show

31 Dec

VH1 is searching for young, single women who are fat–or plus-sized if you prefer that expression. In a nutshell, VH1 searches for single, fat girls for a new reality show that sounds like it wants to be a new and improved “Sex and the City.” So, big chicks don’t cry or diet, they freaking party? Works for me!

VH1 has partnered with a casting agency, check out their casting call:

You’re big and beautiful and know how to own it! You’re phat, fab and chic and have the big and bold personality to match. You’ve got the style, sex appeal and sass to get noticed without being a sample size.

Time to show the world that big girls have more fun!

VH1 in association with Doron Ofir Casting and Left Right Productions is now casting the hottest, most bodacious, voluptuous single women who are at least 21 years old and appear younger than 35 to represent the BBW’s in a brand new docu-series that will show a long-awaited glimpse into the ultra-fab world of big girls!

Check out the complete call for the show here. It seems that casting has already started, so hurry up all you fab single young fat chicks 🙂

If, or rather when, the new VH1 show airs, I’ll be sure to tune in. I happen to love documentaries, and a docu about fat chicks is sure to catch my interest. It does sound like VH1 embraces the concept of fat acceptance, but until I’ve seen the first show, the jury is out. Whatcha think?

    i hate to be all negative nelly, but this i am completely wary about this. while it sounds absolutely fabulous on the surface (fat ladies living life, going out, getting their drink and flirt on, love it!), most tv shows out there (docu and otherwise) are notoriously awful at portraying fat folks in any way other than as the joke of a punchline or as slovenly, lazy, ass-on-the-couch lumps who don’t deserve acceptance or respect. i’m not holding my breath but I hope i’m pleasantly surprised.

      I so agree. But I’m ever the uber-optimist *grin* And if I haven’t forgotten about the show by the times it starts, I’ll so have a review here on the blog.

    I LOL’d at this. Because you know they’re going to find the lowest class types of girls to show off America. You know the kinds I’m talking about. The ones who try to act “ghetto” or tough or are obsessed over boys, makeup and partying. And all have ego’s the size of their body’s

    They aren’t interested in showcasing real plus size women who are fabulous women in their own right by being strong, independant and career oriented women. If they really want to focus on plus size girls they would pick women going to college/focusing on their goals or women who support their families or just the everyday life of dating and not partying. But then again VH1 or MTV isn’t into anything that won’t bring in the big trashy ratings.

      You mean kinda like Girls Gone Wild–the Chubby Edition? That would be awful, but might just bring the big (hehe, no pun intended) ratings.
      Also, I wonder what their definition of a big girl is going to be–a size 12 with boobs and butt? 🙂

      And I love your idea–a docu showing everyday plus-size women living a strong, happy life. That would be neat.
