I watched the Biggest Loser Last night
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
and I wonder what their real message is. I am referring to Jillian and Bob's reaction to the two who spent the week at home. I get the impression that the producers are implying that the only way to be successful is to do it with the "Biggest Loser". Make sure you sign up for the Biggest Loser Challenge.
In past episodes, they imply that the contestants are learning the skills to make it at home then someone volunteers to go home for the week-at-home challenge and according to Bob and Jillian that was the stupidest thing to do. The best place is to be in the house. Of course that is true; the best place to play the game is in the "house".
I also hate how they act like an 8 pound weight loss is such a terrible thing. I personally think it is unhealthy to lose that much so quickly. But it is a "reality " game show. I think that the producers would like us to forget that. The object of the game is to lose as much weight as you can in a short time so you can win a cash prize.
This season has solidified my dislike for Jillian. I think she is a bad actress, especially when she is being portrayed as caring. Who is she, Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? However, she is a great trainer for the game.
Despite all that, I still watch the show because I like seeing the transformations as the contestants lose the weight. But I would not say that the contestants are an inspiration to me because they are playing a game and losing weight, getting fit and healthy is not a game.
