Huge is a television show that goes up against the grain of body image and weight issues that plague young teenaged females. Willamena Radar played by Nikki Blonsky gets sent to "fat camp" by her parents. Willamena who refuses to see herself as a defective has the double added pressure of having parents who own a lifestyle health club chain called CORE.

Her two good friends Amber and Becca bound together with her to give a complete perspective of what it is to live in a world gone "skinny" crazy.

Willamena's secret crush is Ian a young aspiring musician (played by Ari Stidham). Ian is creatively insecure and defensively sarcastic but finds a natural creative partner in Willamena who sometimes helps him with his song writing efforts.

There is the handsome camp counselor George (played by Zander Eckhouse) he's the camp counselor that all the teenage girls at camp have a summer camp crush on.
