    Looks kinda good, but it wasn't as good as I expected. Tbh, I wouldn't look forward to watching it

    6.37 out of 10? That rating is ridiculous! There is obviously a lot of fishy voting going on. Sorry you didn't make it but I would say this is probably one reason why, I would say 7.5 at least, no way this doesn't deserve a 75% grade!

    What if she had a counter part that also dealt with her own weight issues? Like someone that can't gain weight and everyone is like "Yo eat a sandwich you too skinny, girl." and she's like "I can't".
