Plus-size model Shante Gordon is one half of a weight-loss team on VH1's "Money Hungry." Each week Gordon and teammate, Jamie Litt, compete to see which team can lose the most weight and win the $100,000 prize. A native of Florida, Gordon says being on the show isn't about slimming down to a size six, but rather about learning to live a healthier lifestyle. She spoke with ESSENCE.com about "Money Hungry" and making it as a plus-size model.
