MTV's New Reality Star: 324-pound Chelsea Settles (Video)
MTV’s new reality star, Chelsea Settles, doesn’t make life easy for herself. Her new reality series premieres Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 11 p.m.
The series follows Settles, a 23-year-old recent college grad, as she moves from her small town outside Pittsburgh to follow her dream of working in fashion in Los Angeles.
Did we mention she weighs 324 pounds? So, basically she’s moving to a city with notoriously skewed ideas of beauty to work in an industry that’s super focused on appearances. We wish her well.
Lindsey Bannister, Tara Higgins, Marshall Eisen and Dave Sirulnick executive produce the series, which was developed by Bannister and Jessica Antonini from a concept by Nomi Ernst Leidner.
Watch a sneak peek of Chelsea Settles below.
