I know I really shouldn't be surprised that last night's season finale of Fox's More to Love left me with feelings of shame and outrage (and a side serving of "Hey, dude got it right!"). After all, the opening montage of bachelor Luke's hometown visit kicked off with images of heifers lazily grazing in a field. Really, Fox? Really, you thought we wouldn't notice you trying to sneak random bovine imagery into your plus-sized dating show? (Insert purse-lipped head-shake here.) Anyhow, Luke's quartet of "meet the family" dates with Malissa (pictured, right) and Tali (left) -- his divorced parents appear to have come from two different planets, and therefore could not share screentime - were amusingly awkward. Luke's dad, of course, couldn't seem to make peace with the fact that Tali came from planet Israel, invoking Jesus' name before the meal and declaring "praise the lord and pass the potatoes »

More to Love main man Luke is really bringing them down big time, as four more women exit the Fox reality show this week, but not after pampering the remaining 12 remaining contestants big time, gowns, facials, hair and makeup, the works. Coming out of the dressing rooms, it's obvious the makeover had done well for the contestants, big smiles and all. Among those who said goodbye were Bonnie, Christina, Amanda, and Danielle.
The More to Love episode started off with Luke announcing that the women would all be going to the prom, which some of them had never experienced. During the big night, More to Love host Emme brought out Luke's college friends Chase and Sam, in charge of picking the queen of the prom who'd go on a one-on-one date with Luke. Of course, the date with winner Danielle would turn out to be one of the more disastrous one-on-one's ever, »
Luke Conley has given a false account about his weight issues while growing up, it has been reported.
The 26-year-old was recently announced as the bachelor who will woo 20 full-figured female contestants on Fox dating show More To Love. However, his high school girlfriend said that Conley lied that he was obese as a child, People reports. "Growing up, I was poked fun at because I was a chubby kid," he said on the series' first episode. He also told the publication that his weight made him self-conscious around members of the opposite sex, adding: "I would find out about girls with (more) »

In much the same way that I can't resist dipping into the blasted bowl of candy that sits on my colleague Annie Barrett's desk, I'm also a sucker for a good, old-fashioned (non VH1) reality dating show. (Once upon a time, I even endured that primetime special where Dr. Phil tried to set up a lovelorn Paula Abdul.) So I knew resistance was futile the first time I saw a promo for Fox's More to Love and found myself tearing up shocked that a guy whose only six pack sits in his fridge was going to be the center of a reality show from Mike "The Bachelor" Fleiss. Tonight, we met our self-proclaimed man of stature, Luke Conley, who revealed not only his age, height and weight (26, 6'3″, 330 lbs), but also his profession (real-estate investor), salary ("six-figure") and favorite food/most effortless double entendre ("anything thick and juicy"). (Nice!) While »
