Real Women, Real Sizes, Real Love — Real Casting

Fox Network, Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television, and Mike Fleiss, producer of The Bachelor, have teamed up to produce More to Love, “billed as the first “dating show for the rest of us’.” It’s promoting itself as a dating show for average folks, “Real women. Real sizes. Real love.”

“We want to send the message that you can be the size you are and still be lovable,” [Fleiss] said. “We aren’t going to thin these girls down so they can find love — that’s a backwards message.”

They are currently casting nationwide, looking for women who are curvy, beautiful, sexy, at least the age of 23 (and appear under 35) who are ready to be introduced to their soul mates — as well as America’s television viewing audience.

If you’re selected, you’ll be flown to Los Angeles to star in the show; no air date has been selected.

To apply, visit — or go to an open casting call at select Lane Bryant stores. Don’t forget to tell ’em Alessia of Relationship Underarm Stick sent ya!


  1. It will be good if this is done in a respectful way, without treating the women like freaks. I’m glad they aren’t going to be made to diet before they’re allowed to meet partners.

    One thing that always bugs me, though, is the “Real women have curves” thing. I just think it undermines the potential for acceptance of more body types to pit “real” women against thin women. All women are real.

  2. I do find it bothersome that in the battle against beauty standards, even within the feminist community there is a tendency to take a side of a specific group of women. It becomes okay to ridicule one side as “not real women”.

  3. While I used the phrase that the show’s producer’s used, I don’t mean to imply that any size is better or more real or natural than another.

    I think, in this case, that “real curves” is used as a mantra because the average sized American woman is a size 12 or 14 (certainly more curvy than a size 2 — which is courted by the fashion industry almost to exclusivity) and so is a phrase designed to appeal to average women.

  4. Can someone explain to me why the larger the size, the longer the pant length? Nothing drives me crazier.
