On the fence about Biggest Loser

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Generally, Biggest Loser irritates me. The sucked me in this season with the "unknown trainers" and I really like them. Of the original trainers. Bob's ok but Jillian dances on the jagged edge of my very last nerve. Anyone who has read any of my Biggest Loser blogs will find a long standing disdain for Jillian Michaels. You would have to give me the $250k in cash up front and tax-free to to have her "train" me. Brett and Cara seem to have a clue, and I have always said that if money fell from the sky I would hire a boxing training to get my husband into shape. Their techniques have

I hate the game playing in Biggest Loser, so now that the novelty of the new trainers is over and the whinging of the Black Team has commenced, I am thinking of dropping Biggest Loser from the DVR. If I want to see an ultra-morbidly obese person get his life together, I'll watch Heavy.

At this point the only reason I have for wanting to get on Biggest Loser is the meet Alison Sweeny, so that she can go back to the Days of Our Lives set and tell them that Ciara is pronounced Keera not Sierra. For those who don't watch Days of Our Lives, Alison's character Sami Brady has a cousin Ciara Brady. Grandpa Shawn is Sami's (and Ciara's) grandfather born and raised in Ireland. He was still alive with Ciara was named. And the show did a big backstory storyline about Shawn's sister when they were young in Ireland. So logic dictates that if your granddaughter is given a Gaelic name and you hear your son and daughter-in-law mispronouncing it, you would think you would sort them out, don't you?

Back from my Days rant, to my Biggest Loser rant. I am not sure I can tolerate Biggest Loser now that they have brought everyone together and the game playing has commenced, And per usual, I ate ice cream while watching Biggest Loser.

    I also like the first few weeks of The Biggest Loser, but find it very 'high school' after a while with the shows focus less on weight loss techniques and more on the backstabbing that goes on. I also found the show Heavy and like that much better. You can almost see the break thru with each person when they finally 'get it' and connect with the program and what made them fat in the first place.

    I just watch highlight footage. I can't stand watching commercials and having them repeat the same scenes 3 or 4 times!!!

    I only watched sporadic episodes of the biggest loser. that one girl trainer Jillian always totally intimidated me. I think that women would reduce me to tears in no time, but then again I suppose it does not take that much anyway,. But the way is motivating in its own way, just to see the before and after photos is great.. but then again I have always been a sucker for the before and after pics.

    I agree that it's not how it used to be. I still love it though and I really like the new trainers. I am totally going to join a boxing class sometime in the summer! emoticon

    I think it's brave for the morbidly obese contestants to do all of that activity on camera..........! emoticon

    This is the first season i have ever watched it. I do like Bob and what i have seen of Jillian, yup, she needs some meds! But it is interesting and i am mostly teary eyed througout the show..but i can use this as my "im a girl and need to cry sometiems" show, as i rarely cry :)

    I had a gym trainer about 8 yrs ago that got me to a kickboxing class and i LOVED IT!! If i had a lot of money, i would go the boxing/martial arts way to getting in shape as well...due to teh mental challange, respect others and knowledge/history it brings...

    I so use to watch DAYS back in teh day and remeber when Sammi was bulimic? funny she's on this show!!
