A new reality show, More To Love will debut on FOX tonight featuring Luke Conley as the leading man in search of love. The 26-yr-old real estate investor and sub-contractor was interviewed by PEOPLE about his participation in the first dating reality show featuring a full figured bachelor and bachelorettes.

The series will show Luke, who is 6?3? tall and weighs more than 300 lbs dating 20 bachelorettes in a quest to find love. Luke doesn’t reveal if he found love but he wants you to tune in and be a part of his journey as he embarks on love.

These are excerpts from the interview:

TV is a notoriously thin place, but there’s been an upswing in pleasantly plump programming. Why do you think that is?
Maybe they have wider angles on their cameras now so they can fit me on. Maybe the trend is heading in that direction because people are just looking for something new and more real.

Were you concerned about being the butt of a nationally televised joke?
I was concerned the main premise of the show was to poke fun. It seemed like everyone had to be talked into it for that same reason. But it’s legitimate. The desire of the show is for two people to make a sincere connection. It just so happens that they’re not size 2 models.

Are you offended by the title?
The title is suiting. I’m a big man so I definitely have more love.

Has weight impacted your love life over the years?
In high school, it caused me to be somewhat bashful. I would find out about girls with crushes on me, but I never knew what to do about it. Bulking up wasn’t something I didn’t have a choice in. I was pursuing a football career. After traveling and in college, I never let it hold me back or stop me from approaching a woman I was interested in.

Over the weekend, there were talks that Paula Abdul may not return for season 9 of American Idol according to her manager. American Idol fellow judge, Simon Cowell is however not concerned because he believes the contract will be finalized amicably and Paula will be back on the show.

“She’ll be fine. She’ll be on the show,” he tells Extra” I don’t get a lot of say. I’ve just made it clear that I want Paula on the show.”

AI host, Ryan Seacrest also says, “I think as far as I know, you’ll see everybody back. I hope so.”

David Sonenberg Abdul’s manager, raised concern over the weekend, telling the Los Angeles Times that the singer-dancer hasn’t been offered a contract yet.

In the meantime, a “Keep Paula” campaign has been launched on Twitter to keep Paula on the show. Idol alums, Matt Giraud, Anoop Desai and Danny Gokey have also joined the campaign showing support for Paula.

Abdul also took to her Twitter page over the weekend to thank fans for standing by her. She wrote: “I’m actually moved 2 tears upon reading the enormous amount of tweets showing me your kindness, love & undying support. God bless all you! If it weren’t for you, this specific time and situation would feel a lot worse! XoP”

The American idol judges and host are finalizing contract negotiations before the show returns for the ninth season. Ryan Seacrest recently renewed his contract for three years, a $45 million deal to continue as host, perhaps making him the highest paid host in the history of reality tv.  Randy Jackson also signed on through 2011 while Kara DioGuardi has expressed interest to return. Though Simon Cowell will return for another season, his long term future on AI remains uncertain.

There were several reports that Paula Abdul will be returning to the show, however Paula’s manager is not certain of her return since the producers are not agreeing to their demands.

“Very sadly, it does not appear that she’s going to be back on Idol,” Abdul’s manager, David Sonenberg, who has yet to receive a proposal for her return, told The Los Angeles Times.

According to Sonenberg, who began managing the star in June, he told the network Abdul would “love to be on the show,” but is yet to get a response from the producers.

“She’s not a happy camper as a result of what’s going on. She’s hurt. She’s angry,” Sonenberg said. “I think at this point we’re going to be considering everything, including some kind of a competition show. She has tremendous ideas for a whole variety of shows.”

Tell us: Will you continue to watch American Idol without Paula Abdul?

more-to-love-luke-conley Fox has announced Luke Conley, as the “husky hunk”  bachelor who will star on their new dating show focusing on full figured women.

Luke will choose from 20 full-figured females and (hopefully) find the right woman on More to Love, a new dating competition airing on Fox this summer.

The 26-year-old former college football player turned successful real estate investor, Conley stands 6-foot-3 and weighs “over 300 pounds,” says Fox’s press release. Conley claims he is looking for a woman who is “intelligent, passionate, down-to-earth, full-figured and comfortable in her own skin.”

The ladies Luke will have to pick from seem to differ in a lot of aspects. With careers ranging from a plus-sized model to lawyer to yes, an actual rocket scientist, each of the 20 females seems unique.

More to Love, hosted by full-figured supermodel Emme, is set to premier Tuesday, July 28, at 9 pm/ET.

Daisy-of-love-fox-Daniel-Alfonso

Fox aka Daniel Alfonso was eliminated from VH1′s Daisy of Love last Sunday. Fox’s elimination came due to the fact that he had a girlfriend, and lied about having the girlfriend. In this new interview with VH1, Fox talks about his feelings for Daisy, and his regrets about lying.

Below are excerpts from the interview -

How was your time on the show?

It was a bittersweet experience. I was excited to be on the show. Watching Rock of Love in the beginning, you know, seeing Daisy, I just thought I could relate to her. I couldn’t wait to meet her ’cause there would be fireworks.

It must have been flattering to being named Fox on account being good-looking.

I assumed it was because I was quick and sly. Maybe she liked my fox tail.

Sure. Was there anything about the way that that played out on TV that we didn’t get to see?

Relationships are never black and white. By the end of the day, she wasn’t the one for me. I had to do what I had to do. I met Daisy before Daisy of Love at a club in San Jose. I went to that club specifically for her. And right when I made eye contact with her, I hung out for a little moment and I locked lips with her and I felt the spark and that’s when I knew I wanted to fight for her love.

Did she remember you once she saw you on the show?

Yes, she did. I’m pretty sure she did.

Were you worried about the physical threat of having the whole house turn against you?

To be honest with you, I was really f***ing belligerently drunk. I was hammered at that time. I was numb. My brain was Jell-O. But if I was sober in that situation I definitely would have handled it differently.

idol_02-judges-wall_0045_1 It seems all four American Idol judges will be returning for season 9 after all. According to RadarOnline.com, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Kara DioGuardi will be returning to the next season of American Idol despite initial rumors surrounding the show.

Since Abdul’s contract was up, there were speculations of her not returning to the show and that Kara may not return since she only signed a one year contract. Having four judges seemed to be problematic for the live show because it slowed down the pacing says Abdul and Cowell.

Timing issues will be addressed on the next season. At the moment, Abdul and Dioguardi are still in negotiations though sources believe the contracts will be finalized in a few weeks. Sources also believe a formal announcement will be made in a few weeks.

Fox network, along with American Idol producers have come out swinging against new reports that the AI finale voting was rigged.

If you haven’t heard by now, the NY Times reported that AT&T provided phones for free text-messaging services at two Allen parties in Arkansas on the night of the finals. Citing sources, The Times reports that AT&T reps showed party-goers how to “power text” – cast 10 votes at the touch of a button, which violates show rules.

So basically we are all suppose to get all up in arms over what amounts to probably about a few hundred votes or less than .000000001% of the total votes? Newsflash to NY Times, the total votes from the Idol finale amounted to tens of millions. And numerous reports have pointed out that the voting was not even close at all. Kris Allen won by a large margin, thus making these reports even more ridiculous.

The full statement given by Fox and AI producers is below -

“Fox and the producers of American Idol are absolutely certain that the results of this competition are fair, accurate and verified. Kris Allen is, without a doubt, the American Idol. We have an independent third-party monitoring procedure in place to ensure the integrity of the voting process. In no way did any individuals unfairly influence the outcome of the competition.”

daisy-of-love-cast

The show VH1 has been buzzing about for what seems like forever, Daisy of Love is finally set to premier tonight at 9:oopm Eastern time.

You can see the official cast photos here, and other random photos of the cast here. I have no spoilers, but I’m thinking Fox and Big Rig will go pretty far judging from the previews.

Who’s your favorite to win Daisy’s heart?
