What does it mean to call someone "a cow?"


Again, this question comes from the show MasterChef. A person in the show called another person (her teammate) a cow and that person melted down. I want to know the meaning of a cow in this context.

    I am not sure of what the person being called a cow looks like but when someone calls a person that, it usually means large or fat. Sometimes people call others cows when they over-eat but mostly it is used to call a person fat or large.
