No regrets about missing the Biggest Loser Casting call

Sunday, February 27, 2011

SHANTELLE2010 was very sweetly concerned that I had actual regrets about not going to the Biggest Loser Casting call yesterday. It just would have been cool to meet Alison Sweeney, but I figured she wasn't. I'd be better off hauling my cookies to Florida for the Days fan event if I wanted to meet her anyway.

I don't really want to go on Biggest Loser because it annoys me in general, the game playing for the cash while pretending to care about the other contestants is disingenuous at best. It's a moot point anyway, since I don't weigh enough. It would have been wasted trip. Even at the heaviest I would be mathematically incapable of loosing enough weight because even at my heaviest I had less than 50% of my body weigh to loose. Once they started recruiting 400-500 pound guys, the math became insurmountable. Even if I did weigh enough, I am not telegenic. I don't have a compelling story. I couldn't go on the show if I wanted to because an autistic kiddo cannot have a parent missing for 3 months, it would put him in a tailspin and at best he would just drive my husband crazy "Where's mommy?" "Where did mommy go?" "Where's mommy?" etc. I have a much better chance of willing $250,000 on Jeopardy or Are Your Smarter Than a 5th Grader? Hmm I wonder when Jeopardy is casting (as long as I don't have to play Watson)?

The only reason The Biggest Loser would cast me was if they wanted to have Jillian punched in the face (which I doubt is a planned direction for the show). I already know how to loose weight, I just have to break the hold of inertia. It wouldn't take abandoning my family for 3 months to do it.

    I can't imagine being away from my family that long either.

    @DPERINO--There has not been an episode of The Biggest Looser in which Jillian Michaels appears where I have not wanted to punch her in the face before the end. I know it's a violent reaction, but she's screaming in people's faces. I know if were in any of those contestants' places, I would be hard pressed not to pop her one.

    I really do not think that the *Biggest looser* is for the average looser.. omg i hope that sentence makes sense.
    you are awesome and you can do it.... even without punching Jillian in the face...
