Overweight Dating Show — Discrimination or Inspiration?

Fox has unveiled the latest dating show to hit TV — More to Love. The series will feature "a single average guy with a big waist and an even bigger heart" looking for a full-figured soul mate.

Images of impossibly thin models, actresses, and other celebrities saturate popular culture. Perhaps a show about regular sized people could help us all embrace our natural sizes.

But, I can't help but think of the show's theme as a gimmick, that will further the idea that our weight should dominate our identities.

Do you think the nonskinny will look at the show as a breakthrough? Or would they rather be featured on TV not as an "overweight" person, but just as a person?
