My Friend Gabby C. is on this show. Quite frankly i find it inspiring. I am over weight & It shows me even tho I am comfortable with who I am I can lose weight just to be healthier. MTV has put out tons of Crap like Jersey Shore. I am thankful that they put on a show that will help other over weight teens.
Gabby has always been an inspiration & ALWAYS WILL BE.
Better than some
While I am not a big MTV viewer anymore (i came from a not so distant generation that actually saw music videos on this channel), it is nice that this show is about something real and relatable to young people. I'm not a full on basher, I ocassionally watch trashy reality shows involving fights and hook-ups, but I much more enjoy my rare MTV reality viewings in the form of True Life. I hope for the best from this show and hope it inspires as well as entertains.
I think that this show will show average over weight teens that it is possible to lose the weight and be happier in thier own skin.
