MTV CHRONICLES INSPIRATIONAL STORIES OF TRANSFORMATION WITH A NEW SEASON OF "I USED TO BE FAT" FOLLOWED BY NEW SERIES "CHELSEA SETTLES"

Both Series Premiere on Tuesday, October 11 Beginning at 10PM ET/PT

New York, NY (September 29, 2011) - MTV will give viewers a first-hand account of the personal transformations and body image struggles that young adults face in today's society when its hit docu-series "I Used To Be Fat" returns with a new season on Tuesday, October 11 at 10PM ET/PT immediately followed by an hour-long episode of new series, "Chelsea Settles" at 11PM ET/PT with 30-minute installments beginning on October 18. "I Used To Be Fat" profiles 10 new teenagers desperate to shed their unwanted weight the summer before heading off to college as they share their personal struggles and triumphs, both physical and emotional. "Chelsea Settles" follows the highs and lows as Chelsea embarks on the biggest journey of her life - leaving the only home she has ever known for a fresh start in a city more than 2,000 miles away.

"I Used To Be Fat" - Airs at 10PM ET/PT

College is all about reinvention, and for these 10 teenagers "there is no time like the present." Each one-hour episode will focus on a different teenager longing to make a drastic change in their life, following them through the last weeks of high school to the first crucial days of college. From Josh, who is the only overweight member of his athletic family; to Terra, whose Mom doesn't believe she can change; to Lindsey, whose bad eating habits stem from her tumultuous relationship with her father; to Sammy, who is addicted to food and video games; to Latrice, whose overeating hides the pain of not growing up in the same house as her mother. Viewers will get an inspirational and intimate account of their physical and emotional journey, as they struggle to change their attitudes eating habits, and ultimately their lives. "I Used To Be Fat" will air internationally on MTV channels around the world starting in February 2012.

Check out the "I Used To Be Fat" marathon airing on Sunday, October 9 at 10:30am ET/PT.

The show is created by 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA, with JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson and Adam Kaloustian serving as Executive Producers. Dave Sirulnick and Amy Bailey are Executive Producers for MTV.

"Chelsea Settles" - Airs at 11PM ET/PT

Chelsea Settles is a charismatic 23-year-old recent college graduate with an eye for style who has big dreams of pursuing a career in fashion in glamorous Los Angeles. But achieving your dreams is not as easy as it seems when you live in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, serve as a caretaker to your severely diabetic mother, have a long distance boyfriend who's not always there when you need him, and struggle with your weight of 324 pounds.

The series begins as Chelsea makes the bold decision to move to L.A. and change her life instead of settling into the one she's always known. Viewers will follow her very personal journey every step of the way, as she begins her new life on the West Coast, works to jumpstart her career in fashion and commit herself to take control of her weight and get healthy.

Lindsey Bannister, Tara Higgins, Marshall Eisen and Dave Sirulnick serve as Executive Producers for "Chelsea Settles." The series was developed by Lindsey Bannister and Jessica Antonini from a concept by Nomi Ernst Leidner.
