Ah, now this is the FOX we know and love.

FOX has ordered the new unscripted series “More to Love” from executive producer Mike Fleiss (“Are You Hot?”).

The network boasts that the series “follows a single average guy with a big waist and an even bigger heart as he romances several confident and secure plus-size women.” The FOX press release doesn’t mention if the “even bigger heart” is a sign of generosity of spirit or a congenital defect.

The press release later refers to the bachelor’s possible lady loves as “curvy” and “full-figured” and says that in the end, our hero will have to decide of one of the candidates will be his true love.

“This is a dating show that sends the right message about embracing and loving yourself no matter your shape or size,” says Fleiss. “When you are comfortable with your own body, you can really allow yourself to be open to the possibility of finding the right person to love.”

FOX only will say that “More to Love” will premiere later this year and that casting is already underway for contestants.

“This is the first dating competition show in television history that reflects what most real single men and women look like, which makes it instantly relatable to the vast majority of people in the dating pool,” says FOX Reality Guru Mike Darnell, who is not, himself, plus-sized.
