More to Love‘s Luke’s Secret Skinny Past
Patrick Wymore/FOX;
On his new reality dating show, More to Love, big-boned single bachelor Luke Conley says he was always been hampered in his love life because of his weight.

"Growing up, I was poked fun at because I was a chubby kid," he says in the show's premiere. Watch a clip of the show.

And in a recent interview, he said his weight made him the shy guy. "I would find out about girls with crushes on me," he said, "But I never knew what to do about it."

Conley's high school sweetheart Gaylyn tells a different story. He was "the tall, buff, football-playing boyfriend" all her friends were jealous of, she tells, which also posted old photos of the couple together in skinnier times.

In the images, a slender and athletic Conley looks ready for the prom, poses with his shirt off and is surrounded by girls. More to Love? More like more to disclose. --Michael Y. Park
