The fact that a recent casting call for a new reality series had a weight stipulation is, sadly, nothing new for the Thai TV industry. The particulars, however, were. Curve Battle Thailand has not a weight limit, but rather a minimum for hopefuls — at least 70 kilograms.
While referring to a woman who weighs roughly 155 pounds as “plus-size” will earn serious side-eye in the West, the number is considered relatively high in Thailand, where diet pills are openly endorsed by celebrities and young actresses and presenters scramble to keep up with the industry’s preferred look — thin and light-skinned.
