Lifetime is kicking off 2015 with a “big” bang as it will premiere its latest reality show venture, Big Women: Big Love, which “examines the lives of five plus-sized women as they navigate the tricky waters of the turbulent and sometimes harsh dating scene, struggling through bad dates and worse judgements.”
The five women featured on the show range from 27 to 34 years old and are from cities all around the country, including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Fort Worth, and Clifton, New Jersey.
“Shining a light on a group of women who are rarely the focus of TV cameras,” reads the Lifetime press release, “the show provides a unique point of view on their experiences in love and life.”
And here are the five ladies featured on Big Women: Big Love, including first and last names and social media links (where available).

Mar (above) is 32 years old and from Clifton, New Jersey. She has dreams of finding true love and becoming the next big singing sensation. With a penchant for skinny bad boys, she refuses to date a guy who also is plus-sized, despite her own curvy physique.
31-year old Sabrina is from Brooklyn and everything about Sabrina is big — big hair, big fashion and an even bigger personality. The self-described dork is never one to turn down an invitation and always makes the best of every situation, particularly while searching for a man who shares her love of video games.
Kristi is a 34-year-old single mother raising her daughter in Fort Worth, Texas. She is using the internet as her dating guru, but hasn’t found the southern gentleman of her dreams yet.
29-year-old Jessica is from Atlanta, Georgia and seems to already be working on getting booted from Season 2 after recently losing 100 pounds! 😉 She is a makeup artist who still lives at home with her overbearing mother. Jessica’s perfect man is educated, spiritual, successful, respects women and knows how to wine, dine and surprise her.
27-year-old Jenn Dowding is originally from the Midwest (although her Twitter account says Boston) and has always lived a sheltered life under the watchful eyes of her parents. Now on her own in Los Angeles, she is on the prowl to find a cuddly guy with a beard and loving every minute of it!
Big Women: Big Love premieres Thursday, January 1st at 10/9c on Lifetime, and starting January 7 it will air in its normal time slot on Wednesday nights at 10/9c.
