Chelsea Settles: Meet MTV's New, 324-Pound Reality Star

by at . Comments

Chelsea Settles is not small, but MTV hopes she'll be a big hit.

The network's new reality TV starlet is coming to Tinseltown in pursuit of a career in the fashion industry. She's pretty much the anti-Lauren Conrad.

She weighs 324 lbs., which people remind her of constantly, but make no mistake, the 23-year-old is not about to let it stand in the way of a dream.

As she ditches her small town roots for life in the City of Angels, all while struggling to lose weight, Settles' career pursuits meet major obstacles.

She's leaving behind a boyfriend who isn't always supportive, a mom struggling with severe diabetes, and battling her size every step of the way.

The new star will have "an opportunity to expand her social life by confronting the social phobias that have been holding her back," MTV explains.

Unlike most reality shows (cough, any Real Housewives), this features a genuinely likable star, one MTV hopes will be "a new kind of heroine."

Think she will be? Watch the trailer below:

Chelsea is severely depressing to watch because she is so negative about everything and is constantly moaning!

Hi Chelsea just watched your show for the first time and i think it was brilliant, Although it has to be said i didnt enjoy the part when u turned up at the club for ur cousins party, it actually resorted me to tears, how people can be so spiteful and hurtfull, no body should be made to feel the way u were that night, you are a beautiful young girl who can succeed and achieve in anything you want, the people that try to put you down should be ashamed, they may be slim but they sure as hell dont have nice personalities and i know who id rather be like!! Hold your head high girl and believe in yourself You will do it. But do it for you and not for the low lives that try to put you down, I wish you all the best xxx

Hey Chelsea!! I watch your show every week and I want to say that you are an inspiration. I am fighting with a food addiction and it is a day by day process. I am planning on moving to California but I am a little nervous about doing it. But seeing you do it and seeing you excel, it makes me think that I can do it as well.
