MTV Premieres "True Life: I'm a Chubby Chaser"


"I'm not attracted to muscle. I'm attracted to mass."

MTV's True Life has covered just about every unusual life experience out there, including True Life: I'm a Textaholic, I Have a Traumatic Brain Injury, I Hate My Plastic Surgery, I Have a Hot Mom, I'm Allergic To Everything, and I Want to Be Straight (that last one's really sad, you can watch it here). On January 11, MTV releases the latest chapter in the docudrama series when they premiere True Life: I'm a Chubby Chaser.

The episode includes Justin, a 26-year-old gay man who's only attracted men who pack a lot of extra pounds. In the trailer he keeps referring to these big guys as "bears," but we've seen plenty of very fit bears out there. If there are already bears, cubs, otters (and wolves?) then maybe we can come up with a more apt mammal? Is hippo too harsh? Any suggestions?

We're not judging, though. As Justin says, "In the gay community there's so much accepting of a lot of different lifestyles, and that to me felt really great, because I fit in." If you're chasing the chub, we sure won't stop you. And we'll definitely be tuning in on Wednesday.
