MTV has some new tag lines this fall, with a brand new series centered around 324 pound Chelsea. Chelsea has a dream to make it in the fashion industry, which is so hard to break into, especially if your plus sized. MTV is going to take a new twist on their reality shows, and follow this plus size babester around as she works to make it. Set your DVR’s because “Chelsea Settles” is scheduled to air on MTV starting October 11th, 2011. Check your local scheduling for show times.
Meet a new kind of MTV heroine.
That’s the tagline of MTV’s newest show, “Chelsea Settles,” a reality series starring a pretty 23-year-old girl dreaming of moving to Los Angeles and making it in fashion. Oh yeah, and she weighs 324 pounds.
The engaging trailer posted on MTV.com depicts Settles as an upbeat, determined and sweet girl who loves Kim Kardashian and whose weight has become an obstacle to achieving her dreams (to use some MTV-like language).
One of the most intriguing parts? When Chelsea applies for a fashion job and is harshly warned by her boss, “We’re in an image business… the fashion industry is very weight-conscious.”
