I’m only 5 minutes into the most recent episode of the Biggest Loser and I want to punch the TV. Ooohh yes I am actually watching it on the TV instead of the computer. My husband just left to go to Home Depot, Carlos is in bed and I realized I hadn’t yet seen Biggest Loser this week. The sofa is all mine right now.
Anyway, what is the deal with these people? They are all pissed off that previously sent home contestants are returning to compete for a spot in the final three. They actually had to bring in a lawyer to review the contract signed by all contestants. Of course the contract made provisions for such a twist in the show.
The show is known for its twists and turns. Ultimately it is a game. The final five contestants don’t think it’s right that they worked so hard to get to this place and they don’t think it’s fair that they should have to go up against people who had the same chance but blew it. I get it, sort of, but at the same time these people were given an opportunity of a lifetime to lose weight, get healthy and come to terms with what caused them to gain the weight in the first place. Game or no game, at the end of this everyone wins if they have accomplished significant weight loss.
These people have made it to the final five and two of them just left the ranch. WTF?! I have never seen such whiny, entitled people in my life and believe me in my line of work I see a lot of whiny, entitled people. It’s been like this all season. When they had to switch trainers there was so much bitching and moaning it was almost unbearable to watch. In the real world you’re lucky if you can afford a trainer.
Oh what I wouldn’t give for 2 weeks on that ranch. Seriously it would be just enough to kick my butt into gear. I would do whatever Bob and Dolvett wanted me to do! In fact I would welcome the opportunity to pull an SUV around the ranch. Bring it Bob and Dolvett!!
The finale is only two weeks away. I have been very uninspired this season. There has been too much bickering, game playing and drama. If I had to vote for someone to win right now I would have to vote for Kim, the former professional wrestler. She has worked very hard each week. Damn girl lost 15 pounds this week to weigh in at 147! Amazing.
Clearly I have strong feelings about this tonight. If you watch the show feel free to share your feelings in the comments.
