MTV's newest reality star, Chelsea Settles, 23, moves to Los Angeles to follow her dream of making it in the fashion industry.

But unlike your usual MTV L.A. girls -- think Lauren Conrad from "The Hills" -- Chelsea, a Black Pittsburgh native, is plus-sized, weighing 324 pounds.

Here's a sneak peek of Chelsea attempting to change her life, and finding out that wanting to work in an image-conscious industry is doubly hard for someone of her size. Still, she perseveres.

We're rooting for you, Chelsea! We can't wait to catch the show's premiere on October 11th at 11pm.
