Luke Conley is a 26-year-old former college football offensive lineman who stands 6’3″ and weighs more than 300 pounds. He is looking for love on Fox’s new reality show, More to Love. Hosted by plus-size supermodel Emme, the show, which premieres on Tuesday, July 28, chronicles 20 voluptuous ladies as they compete for Luke’s heart.
Proud of their size 14 bodies and unashamed to acknowledge that there is more to love with them, these 20 ladies have been hand-picked from around the country in an effort to slash the commonly-held stereotype that you must be a size 2 to win the heart of your Prince Charming.
It’s the brainchild from the same creator of The Bachelor, More to Love features similar situations: Each week, Luke will preside over the elimination ceremonies where he will graciously dismiss one of the ladies as he becomes one step closer to finding real love. The 20 women are all career women who range in professions from waitress to engineer to rocket scientist. Despite their varied professional backgrounds, they all have one thing in common: They are searching for love. Over the course of the show, Luke will wine and dine these ladies, some of whom have never been on a date before.
In addition, More to Love will honestly reveal how these women’s own insecurities about their weight and their bodies has impacted their sense of self-worth, confidence and identity.
To learn who these lucky 20 ladies are, tune in to Fox, Tuesday, July 28, 9 p.m. EST / 8 p.m. CST to watch the season premiere of More to Love.
