UPDATE [5/2/11]: This episode of Tyra will air again on Monday, May 2.
Tune in this Wednesday, March 10 to The Tyra Show when she features her own Circus of Weight.
No. It’s not some new diet, but rather the Circus of Weight is a social experiment that uncovers the stories behind weight stereotypes.
From being called too fat, too skinny or too muscular, Tyra’s stage is filled with a panel of men and women that come in all shapes and sizes.
In an open discussion, they share their stories of body discrimination and also share their desires and fears for why they look as they do.
From spending hours at the gym to meticulously counting calories, one moment you may find yourself yelling at the television screen and the next moment crying upon listening to a young woman’s story of her battle with bulimia.
