this seems like a terrible idea.

"Mo'Nique's Fat Chance," a two-hour reality show crowning a "full-figured" winner, airs tomorrow night at 8.
NY Post

the crowning of Ms. F.A.T. (which stands for, i kid you not, Fabulous And Thick) will premiere tomorrow night on the Oxygen channel. the contestants' weights aren't listed on the web site but their dress sizes are included. while some of the contestants clock in at size 14 or 16, others are above size 20. size 26?! i am not saying that the models put before us in Vogue, InStyle and Glamour set up any realistic body-size goals, but to encourage obesity? this hardly seems a brilliant idea. if you're a size 26, i'd venture that you are not in good health. one need not have a medical degree to figure this out. i posit that there is no such thing as weighing in at "a healthy 275 lbs." if you weigh that much, it's unhealthy. period. i'm not suggesting that people of that size be discriminated against, but rewarding such girth? bad idea!
