  • A young, slender man is introducing his plus-size girlfriend to his parents for the first time. He is head-over-heels in love with her and thinks she’s beautiful, but his parents openly disagree. How will the passersby react? Supermodel Ashley Graham guest stars, providing her unique perspective on the subject matter.
 
  • Two young women are sitting in a café when they are approached by an older male photographer who invites them to his studio. The girls consider this potential modeling opportunity, but will anyone step in and suggest that they not trust this man?
 
  • A bartender’s overprotective boyfriend sits at the bar during her shift, keeping an eye on how she interacts with customers. When he thinks that she is being too friendly or flirty, he calls her out in front of others. Will any of the patrons defend the bartender?
 
  • A parent is being critical of every small mistake her child makes, yelling at and punishing the child for these minor offenses. Will any of the other diners say something?
