There’s a new MTV reality show coming to town, but it’s no where near what The Hills or Jersey Shore was like. In October, the network is set to debut a reality series featuring a small town girl who moves to a big city to pursue fashion but her biggest obstacle is herself. This show could go both ways– it could help her out, or it could make her miserable. Read more after the jump, watch the trailer, and tell us what you think!



MTV will debut a new reality series in October, and while it features a familiar premise – girl moves to a big city to pursue fashion – newcomer Chelsea Settles is not only battling the transition, but also her weight. She weighs 324 lbs.

The network describes Settles, 23, as “a new kind of MTV heroine.” The show will follow the recent college grad as she arrives in Los Angeles from a small town near Pittsburgh, and will chronicle issues like her long-distance boyfriend, social phobias and weight loss.

The docu-drama appears to be a viewer-friendly blend of reality dramas like “The Hills” and weight loss programs like “I Used to be Fat” or “The Biggest Loser.”

“Chelsea Settles” premieres with a special hour-long episode on Oct. 11 at 11:00 p.m ET, and you can watch the trailer below:
