FOX to air 'The Littlest Groom' reality miniseries on February 16 & 23
By Reality TV World staff, 01/28/2004
Just when you thought FOX had sunk about as low as it could go with its new My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance reality prank show, the network has announced plans to air The Littlest Groom, an Average Joe-like two-part reality miniseries in which a vertically-challenged 4'5" man searches for love among women of similar height... only to later discover he'll also have some average-sized women competing for his heart.
Airing over two nights on February 16 and 23 at 8 PM ET as a lead-in to the final two episodes of FOX's six episode Fiance series, The Littlest Groom, will, according to FOX, answer the question of whether "your height should determine whom you find attractive." Dani Behr, who hosted Bravo's Boy Meets Boy gay bachelor series, will host the program.
During the first hour airing on February 16, The Littlest Groom follows Glen Foster, a 23-year-old salesman and little person who is searching for true love. Glen will be introduced to a group of 12 women - all of them little people like himself - to begin his search for that special someone. In one-on-one dates and group activities, Glen will get to know his potential partners and narrow down his choices to those with whom he feels the strongest connection. But after some of the women are eliminated, Glen's decision will suddenly become more complicated when his dating pool is expanded to include women of average height.
During the final hour airing on February 23, Glen will select two women who will compete to win his heart. Ultimately, he will have to make a final decision, choosing the one woman with whom he is truly compatible.
The Littlest Groom is being produced by LMNO, the folks behind such other previous reality disasters such as FOX's Boot Camp (which was sued for ripping off Survivor's concept) and NBC's Race To The Altar (a show that bombed so bad that the network had moved it to Saturday nights by the end of its run.) Eric Schotz and Bill Paolantonio serve as executive producers. Tracy Green serves as co-executive producer with Scott Messick directing.
