The Biggest Loser started the trend of new weight-centered reality shows like Heavy, I Used To Be Fat, and Shedding for the Wedding. What makes these shows so appealing?

According to it's probably one of these two things:

  • You can relate to how hard it is to shed unwanted weight and you empathize with their struggle.
  • You watch these shows like a car wreck you can't look away from.

Either way, TV is starting to open up its doors to people of all shapes and sizes. Are you a fan of these shows?
