FOX’s full-figured dating show More to Love has found a full-figured host in model and author Emme.
The show, which premieres July 28, will follow a single guy “with a big waist and an even bigger heart” as he dates and pares down a field of plus-size women. Emme, who’s probably the most widely recognized plus-size model on the planet, will serve as the bachelor’s guide through the process.
Emme previously hosted Fashion Emergency on E! and has written four books, including the memoir True Beauty, and has been an outspoken advocate for healthy lifestyles and body-image issues. She was also the first plus-size model to land a cosmetics contract when she signed with Revlon.
Her hiring as the host of More to Love would seem to indicate that executive producer Mike Fleiss (The Bachelor) is sticking to his promise to give the show a positive tone and not exploit the participants.
FOX hasn’t released any information on the show’s participants yet.
