Meet MTV's Unconventional New Fashionista Reality Star: Chelsea Settles

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 18th 2011 3:03PM
Chelsea SettlesMTV's already done one series about a fresh-faced girl moving to Los Angeles to make it in the fashion world. So how will 'Chelsea Settles,' the channel's newest reality "docu-series," be different from 'The Hills'?

Let's just say the leading lady in question doesn't exactly resemble Lauren Conrad. Chelsea, though bubbly, smiley, beautiful and absolutely in love with fashion, weighs a very un-'Teen Vogue' 324 pounds. How will the small town girl from Pittsburgh fit into a world that's so obsessed with thinness?

Well, we're happy to watch her find her way. Between dealing with her new town, her mom's medical problems and her long-distance boyfriend, she'll certainly have her hands full. And we have one more question, which is probably the most important one of all: Does Natasha Bedingfield have a new single MTV can use for the theme song?

'Chelsea Settles' premieres with a one-hour special Tue., Oct. 11 at 11 PM on MTV, and will air half-hour episodes every week after that.

the show caught my eye as i was channel surfing but i think chelsea a very interesting person and it's a shame on how people judge because of the outside my advise to chelsea is to do you dont worry about what other people think it's all about the heart and what makes chelsea happy you know just please yourself that's all that matters my opinion your more than pretty you have that look with the swagger to go with it so keep your head up ma it's a plum pleasing pleasure as well as a privilege to watch your show

I think Chelsea is a VERY pretty girl and I love BBW. I would love to date her at the size and weight that she is at,or even bigger.She is definitely my type!

I really like what I'm seeing from this show so far! From the moment you meet Chelsea you can’t help bu root for her. I hope that MTV doesn’t take this show down the generic ‘weight loss reality show’ road, because it has potential - Chelsea has some depth, and I like how it focuses on her growth mentally just as much of her challenge of losing weight.

Other kudos= great theme song! (I love Ingrid Michaelson) and also I was really happy when I heard Molly Marlette's "Cause for Concern" in the premiere when she goes to the laundromat with her grandma. (watch the scene at http://vimeo.com/30751546 ).

I luv this girl,she motivates me,I'm not a size 2 and my husband luvs all that I am,but as for me,I'm not comfortable with my weight,she gives me the motivation to be what makes me happy,what everyone else thinks is irrelevant.

Why why why, is it so entertaining to watch fat people cry about their lives and spin their 'woe is m'e stories? Eat a salad you cow!

Why don't you eat a compassion pill,I think maybe your possessed to say something like that,learn to luv people,instead of criticize,the world needs one less of those who despise those who are different from themselves.

she loves kim kardashian? a talentless skank whose only claim to fame is doing that piss-porno with the creepy guy?
life hasn't been a cakewalk for her- it has been an unending stream of cakes walking down her throat.
i saw her chowing down on that chick filet and the ice cream.
sure there are things that can screw up your metabolism but she got there the easy way- by eating herself there.
genetics and metabolism play their roles but, her food choices play theirs too.
to quote eric cartman - she racks disepren.

Wished I could watch this from the Phils. People who took steroids for early childhood asthma are known to gain weight as the steroids affect their liver's ability to process stuff. So, equating fat with laziness is plain ignorance. On the other hand, it doesn't excuse anyone to receive a free pass. And losing weight is not easy. I just have this feeling some people lacked some hugs growin up so when they see all the support thrown at overweight people, they get all negative. It's no different from cheering on a friend who is attempting to quit smoking. Quitting smoking and losing weight aren't just for cosmetic purposes; these are literally life-changing choices that should be supported.

I'll watch it.
This actually might be good. Instead of dumb/weird like most of the shows on MTV these days.
