Meet A New Kind Of MTV Heroine In ‘Chelsea Settles’ [Trailer]

Often the only thing holding people back from finding true satisfaction in life is themselves. As much as other people’s negative words can sting, it’s one’s own choice whether or not they’ll allow naysayers to stand in their way. And that’s what MTV’s newest reality heroine, Chelsea, is learning as she struggles to find her confidence in an image-obsessed world.

Chelsea is a morbidly obese young woman living in a small town who has dreams of moving to L.A. and working in the fashion industry, but fear is blocking her from going after her goals. Starting Oct. 11, join this hopeful–and quite lovable–human being as she navigates uncharted territory and attempts to overcome her personal obstacles.
