    I think I might watch that show. She seems really genuine and sweet and full of ambitions. But I’m STILL looking forward to TLC’s Big Sexy!! Seems this Chelsea Settles show focuses on weight loss and stuff and I’d rather watch something about plus size women who EMBRACE their size NOT hate their size!!

    Yes. I saw this and I wasn’t really excited about it because it seemed like the same old formula and those stereotypical thoughts about obese women. “Oh she’s so beautiful…cute…and smart….talented….full of personality BUT she’s fat. LOLOLOLOL…That’s so done.

    The first time I watched “Chelsea Settles” it was by mistake due to my constant flipping throught the channels… I decided to stay tuned b/c I thought Chelsea was such a beautiful girl with a captivating personality… its funny that I did not notice her weight first. I did however notice all the similarities between she and I. She would be such an awsome friend… today I posted on my Facebook page… “Chesea Settles… you are my Kim Kardashian”… I cant wait for the other 5 episodes to air. Keep being you Chelsea, because you are perfect just the way you are!

    I finally got a chance to watch the show myself and I love her personality. I see so much of my younger self in this character and I’m curious to see where her journey takes her.
