Sara Rue's new weight-loss reality show 'Shedding for the Wedding' premiered last night (23rd February 2011)
SARA RUE, the American actress who famously lost 50lbs in weight, is the host of the new reality show 'Shedding for the Wedding', which premiered on the CW network yesterday, reports E! online.The new show is described as being a "light-hearted" series about planning a wedding while simultaneously dropping weight for the big day. Nine couples are competing for the 'fantasy wedding' grand prize, which will make up the show's final episode. Although the show is attempting to distance itself from similar programs such as 'Bridalplasty' by focusing on the 'healthy approach' to weight loss, last night's ratings were poor. According to Adweek, 'Shedding for the Wedding' scored a rating of 0.8, which the website described as "embarrassing", adding, "the only advantage of debuting this low is not having too much farther to fall".
SARA RUE, best known for her role in the ABC sitcom 'Less Than Perfect', recently became the spokesperson for the 'Jenny Craig' weight-loss program after successfully losing 50lbs in weight. She is set to marry her fiance KEVIN PRINCE in May this year.
