Ok, I KNOW this is going to sound horrible, but it is how I honestly feel about Kai speaking out about the Biggest Loser experience.
When people go onto these shows, do they not realize they are going on a NATIONAL TELEVISION SHOW? If you wanted to just lose the weight and go through a completely honest program, than don't go on a weight loss SHOW! Go to a weight loss camp or something of the like.
It is TV people! If the network & producers didn't get the 'results' they get, the show wouldn't be as successful. The network needs to do what they have to for the ratings, it's their business & livelyhood. Does it suck? Yes, but it is reality.
If all the contestants feel the way Kai do, then why not get a group of them together to afford the lawyers for a class action suit? But again, America is sue crazy & it drives me nuts.
I believe even with the extremities the show puts the contestants through, it still inspires America to lose weight. It still motivates people.. one of their purposes of the show. Look at all those people who have lost 60, 80, 150lbs b/c of the inspiration of the show!!
I myself wanted to try out for the BL, but was told I am not fat enough, b/c I don't have 100+ pounds to lose (I only have 80ish left to go). I am going to track my weightloss and see if I can stay above the yellow line each week to see how far I would've gotten on the show if I was indeed fat enough.
At first I was mad b/c I am still severly overweight, but that isn't what America wants to see. People want to see the double digit weight loss numbers being put up on the scale each week (unless you are one of the wenches the viewers want to see gain weight!). Quickly, I realized.... oh ya, guess what?!?!
It's a TELEVISION SHOW!!!!! It's a business...
...Ok, I am done ranting now. Thanks for letting me get it all out... they were talking about this on the radio and I was screaming at my radio when I pulled into work & didn't get to finish my vent then!!
