12 Terrible Ideas for a Reality Show
"The Littlest Groom" & "More to Love"
Idea: “Let’s callously remake ‘The Bachelor’ with little and/or overweight people and call it a ‘twist’!”
That Led To: ”The Littlest Groom” (Fox, 2004)/“More to Love” (Fox, 2009)
Did It Fail Miserably? Thankfully, both did. “Groom,” which saw a 4-foot-5 bachelor look for love among similarly-sized ladies, had a (ahem) short run, lasting just two episodes. “More to Love,” with a 330-pound man seeking the plus-size woman of his dreams, at least made to a full nine episodes, but we were spared a second season. Does it surprise you that both of these cynical retreads came from Fox? It shouldn’t.
