Japanese company DEBUcari is offering a unique service that lets you rent “fat people” for 2000 yen (NT$500) per hour.
Operated by Mr. Bliss, the founder of the plus-size fashion brand Qzilla, DEBUcari places great emphasis on body positivity. Instead of using fat as a derogatory term, they consider it to be positive and empowering.
Mr. Bliss came up with the idea of DEBUcari after struggling to find plus-size models for his clothing brand.
He decided to start a talent agency for overweight individuals back in 2017. During April of this year, DEBUcari announced that they will start renting their talents to companies or individuals in need of their services.
The services that are provided depend on each individual talent, but some popular services include modeling for commercials, cleaning, consulting, accompanying and more.
Talents can not be rented for dating purposes or for illegal or inappropriate activities.

In order to register as a talent, individuals have to be confident and proud of their body size. They also have to be at least 20 years of age, and over 100 kg in weight.
The company has stated that the entire 2,000 yen fee goes to the talents themselves, while Debucari only earns a negotiated commission from corporate clients.
Information about individual talents can be found on their website, including their specific weight, height, available times, locations, and services.
