    Too bad host Emme, herself; a plus-size (and very good) model, is rather stiff in the premiere. All in all, more fun than you'd think.

    That Conley is a 300-plus-pound guy comfortable in his own skin helps, as does his genuine affection for the larger ladies. And all of that makes this otherwise-routine Fleiss confection a notch or two more interesting.
  3. Hosted by plus-size supermodel Emme, More to Love adds an extra layer of pathos to the genre's usual Harlequin hearts and flowers, its candlelit rooms, poolside chats and painfully drawn out ritual eliminations.

    Perhaps partly because the producers are determined not to let More to Love turn into a jeer fest, the show almost chokes on its own sensitivity and refinement.

    Somehow, the routine isn't as fun on More to Love [than "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette"].

    Once you get past the fact of the producers' milking more than the usual volume of pathos from scenes of pre-elimination anxiety and post-dismissal distress, More To Love is much the same as its slimmer sisters.
  7. The fragility of these women sucks the fun out of the meeting-and-culling process that should be the entertainment heart of any dating reality show.

    I actually really enjoyed it! It is more interesting in parts than The Bachelor because of the characters involved.

She is so CADDY and I don't get it as her personality Sucks and she is NOT even pretty at all. Heather and Melissa are lovely. Luke, Please don't hook up with Lauren as you will regret it. Expand

    At the beginning, I thought it would be sad as many of these young women seem to be going through therapy - as they told about their negative At the beginning, I thought it would be sad as many of these young women seem to be going through therapy - as they told about their negative dating experiences. But, as I kept watching, it seems Luke, who was comfortable with who he was showed them an example of what was possible. I also liked the fact that he seemed to be sensitive about their insecurities without letting them play the victim. Melissa B. who cried a lot at the beginning was more confident by the time she left. It's amazing that while some of the girls were what's considered Plus sizes, some were probably on the high end of Regular sizes but are made to feel their "big" because they're not 2's, 4's or 6's. I like that most of them - Lauren being an exception, seemed to grow from the experience, even though they didn't "get the man'. They realize they limited themselves in the past and unless you allow someone to set small goals for you, you are only limited by your own thoughts. I'm glad the producers didn't drag this out like The Bachelor for 12 weeks. Not all bachelors are as sensitive and caring as Luke, but it sure was a nice way to start a new show! Expand

    The show is not bad, but that one girl that crys during every interview is starting to annoy me.

    It was awful. Humiliating for those poor women - Parading their Height/Weight across the screen. They don't put bra size and It was awful. Humiliating for those poor women - Parading their Height/Weight across the screen. They don't put bra size and measurements on other dating shows. The women were shown at their most fragile - Like the producers had pushed them to tears...And that's how we were introduced to them? Shame on Fox! Expand
