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 a doll!!! She is ravishingly gorgeous, refreshingly positive, and incredibly courageous. She may not realize it, but she is a wonderful role model for little girls everywhere. It is about time real women are being represented on television. Thanks Chelsea.

To the people who are saying negative things about this young woman Chelsea, why? I mean no one is forcing you to watch the show? If you don't like it change the channel. I seriously doubt the negative comments from a couple nobodys like yourselves will not change the status of this show or the way she lives her life. You choose to be skiny she chooses to be big! It's her life let her live it! She doesn't know you so I doubt she cares about what you think. Lol a bunch Of winners. Good job Chelsea!! Keep at it!

Found myself watching this show tonight. I watch my mom and sister struggle with their weight along with other issues they have in life. Will let them know about this and hope that it can inspire them. With that said, this is closer to real life than any other reality show. We are an obese nation with a lack of self confidence. This show could inspire a lot of people.
