The CW is going to bridal bootcamp. Sort of.

Less Than Perfect‘ star Sara Rue has signed on to host a new weight-loss show called ‘Shedding for the Wedding,’ says The Hollywood Reporter.

And Rue is more than perfect for the part: She recently lost 50 pounds on Jenny Craig, dropping from a size 14 to a size, and became a spokesperson for the weight loss company in December.

The Bridezillas and their Chubby Hubbies will compete to lose weight in time for their Big Day–and the chance to win “the wedding of their dreams.”

According to THR, ten overweight couples will live together and battle the bulge over a three-month period, with the pair who loses the least amount of weight each episode to be eliminated.

The CW has slated the reality show for midseason.
