MTV's newest docu-series, 'Chelsea Settles' (Tues., 11PM ET on MTV) started with a young girl talking about her biggest passions – the world of fashion and moving to Los Angeles. As a crew member crossed the camera, the 324lb. Chelsea was revealed. "It's pretty obvious what my number one passion is," she admitted.

Chelsea was super charming and bubbly, but has a completely unfounded low self-esteem problem. In Tuesday night's premiere episode, we saw Chelsea taking care of her sick mother and learn that she was in a long-distance relationship with a cheating boyfriend. After a trip through the Chick-Fil-A drive through, she took solace in some chicken nuggets, but eventually broke down in tears and decided it was time to move on.

Chelsea SettlesWe've seen the story before -- small-town girl moves to the big city to make it in the biz. But Chelsea Settles, the star of MTV's latest docu-series, is slightly different than your normal heroine. Unlike most college grads trying to forge a career in the fashion industry, Chelsea weighs 324 pounds.

The six-episode reality series 'Chelsea Settles' (premieres Tue., Oct. 11, 11PM ET on MTV) follows the 23-year-old as she moves from a tiny city outside of Pittsburgh called Uniontown, Penn. to Los Angeles. "It's like 'Cheers,'" Settles told AOL TV of her hometown. "Everyone knows everyone. They know your family history. It's definitely very stifling at times, but after being away for so long I definitely do appreciate home and where I come from."

After studying fashion merchandising and marketing at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Settles wasn't quite sure what to do with her degree. She responded to an MTV casting call and much to her delight, the network chose to follow her as she not only moved to LA but embraced a completely different, healthier lifestyle.

Settles called AOL TV from her Pennsylvania hometown -- she moved back in with her family for a bit while the show airs -- to talk about the terrifying prospect of broadcasting your weight to the country, turning into Kim Kardashian and whether she'd do another season.

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?
