Video: MTV's 'Chelsea Settles' Follows 324 Pound Girl into Fashion Industry

| by Michael Allen

MTV's latest docu-series 'Chelsea Settles' follows the journey of a 324-pound girl (Chelsea Settles) as she tries to break into L.A.'s glitzy fashion industry. Settles stopped by 'The Wendy Williams Show' in advance of the premiere and talked about the show (video below).

Settles, who has lost considerable weight (and appears to have had cosmetic surgery), talked about how she joined the show: "I was browsing MTV's website, and there was a casting call, they were looking for an overweight girl, and I wrote an email ... My grandma told me I was wasting my time ... but then I got on!"

'Chelsea Settles' premieres with a one-hour special Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 11 p.m. on MTV.
