'Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls': 5 things you need to know about the Prime Video Reality Show
'Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls' is an Amazon Prime Video original that will keep you hooked to your screen for the entire weekend. The show follows Lizzo as she embarks on a quest to find the next 'big' thing. This isn't your typical 'America's Got Talent' or 'America's Next Top Model' challenge. This is a woman looking for other women who are similar to her, especially in size.
On-screen and onstage, large women do not receive the portrayal they deserve. One thing we know is that in the entertainment world, bigger women are frequently neglected, no matter how talented they are. Lizzo is well aware of the problem with the emphasis on slimmer ladies, which is why she took a different approach when it came to finding backup dancers. She was looking for skilled women of all shapes and sizes. The larger the group, the better, to ensure that everyone was addressed on stage. For her tour, Lizzo is looking for the best plus-sized dancers to join her.
