While dating shows are intended to be fun and games, Babe's Ari Bines writes these types of shows are perpetuating body image issues.


"So, I know it's television. I know there's limited time to "get to know someone" when surrounded by 15 camera-wielding producers. But there's a fine line between that initial "immediate attraction" bullshit Bachelor contestants are always harping about and complete shallowness. Chalk it up to editing all you want, but cast members are selected (both in casting and throughout elimination rounds) almost solely on looks."
"Networks like ABC and MTV strategically select the most influential people online to take part in their dating charade, but it seems like bigger people (or anyone with even a hint of arm fat) are nowhere to be found regardless of facial beauty, social influence, or (shudder) personality."

Are you over gaudy reality dating shows or are you all in?
