Why haven’t I seen a season of The Bachelor which includes a chubby girl?

Not that I actually watch the show, except for the first episode because I LOVE the glamorous outfits they all seem to show up in on the first day – but I would make the time for it if they ever included a girl considered to be statistically “overweight”!

Come to think of it I don’t recall ever seeing any chubby guys on these shows either!

Everyone seems to flash their tight, toned, tanned bodies with perfectly sculpted muscles under skin that looks as though it’s been freshly slathered in baby oil without any muffin tops to be seen!

Are the producers really that concerned about their ratings? Because I am confident that even more people would watch if they included everyday bodies.

Throw in a few ‘mum-tums’ as well as ‘dad bods’!

Sure it is wonderful to look after your health and well-being, and looking the part is absolutely glorious… but just include some characters that everyone who doesn’t have a fitness models figure can relate to.

Send in the saggy boobs! The beer belly! Let’s all feel at home as we watch in anticipation to see how the romantically chaotic episodes play out.

It’s not going to hurt to include the personalities who look less like Victoria’s Secret models and more like a mother who hasn’t slept in days – or showered for that matter, with glassy eyes, greying hair, a fuller figure who brings the most genuine hugs, smiles and warmth to the show- that everyone falls in love with because she’s got no time to get her nails done or her figure en- pointe, let alone bring any fakeness to the show.

Perhaps that’s why we don’t see these personalities on The Bachelor… maybe they’re too real for the producers- or perhaps they themselves just don’t have time for nonsense in their lives?

Would you ever appear in a reality show? Tell us in the comments below?

  • Nobody wants to watch fat people on TV or anywhere, end of. They are not attractive- they’d get booted off straight away and it’s insulting to the poor guy… And No never, I wouldn’t put my family through that!


  • Just shows that this and other shows are not ‘reality’ doesn’t it?


  • I literally haven’t watched this sort of “reality” show in years! Not because I’m a stiffler but it just got boring! Haha! Reality is actually not a bunch of incredibly good looking humans all together in a room dating one another… in fact there are so many beautiful couples where both people look very different from one another and I think that is part of relationship beauty!!! But I think good on the humans that have found friendships and love through appearing on these productions. We all cant be the same :)


  • All these “contestants” are actors. They need to fit a particular profile. Certain shape, size, features, “occupation”, personality…
    I wouldn’t go on reality tv, I really don’t need people knowing about my life and then trolling about it on social media.


  • They’re so fake and spend so much time glamourising drama that I can’t even stand to watch the ads. No doubt that even if they did include a chubster they would still be drop dead gorgeous and completely unrealistic.


  • These shows are so awful, how do they keep getting air time?! Not just on the tv show, but other talk shows, on the radio and in those awful magazines such as new idea and woman’s day. I would never go on a show like this, statistically, the relationships don’t last, so why go on tv to try and find love?


  • There should be more diversity and a true representation of the general public.
    It would be interesting to know if they get the average bodied woman/man apply


  • I read in a magazine that Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny’s son has been approached. I got the impression he is not that keen on the idea. It is not fair that guys are encouraged to appear on the show because of who they are “connected” to.


  • It would be lovely to see but I really don’t think they will put real people on TV
