It appears I am not the only person who likes free sh*t… keep those entries coming until midnight EST tomorrow!
I have this crazy indecisive relationship with the show The Biggest Loser. Every season I am so put off by so much that happens, and vow not to watch it again the next season. Then one week (or two) goes by before the new season starts, and I find myself getting sucked back in all over again.
Here’s a breakdown of why I have such a love/hate relationship with the show.
I love that the contestants lose weight through exercise and a healthy diet, rather than drastic measures like surgery which many of them are eligible for.
I hate the new female trainer. Her voice kills me.
I love watching the contestants transform over the course of the season physically and how confident they seem at the end.
I hate how the personal trainers pretend that they are therapists, but they really are not qualified to break down the contestants like they do.
I love Curtis Stone.
I hate the timeline for weight loss on the show. I think it sets very unrealistic expectations for society, when most people don’t have the time or flexibility to workout for 6 to 8 hours a day like the contestants do.
I love hearing how fast the contestants sprint on the treadmills. It inspires me to run so much faster when I’m doing intervals.
I hate watching the personal trainers scream into the desperate contestants faces, but I do realize it’s all for TV.
I love how most of the contestants seem to make a true lifestyle change and go on to motivate and inspire others even after the show is over.
I hate hate hate hearing the contestants throw a fit on the scale when they only lose a few pounds. I’ve seen some get upset with losing as much as seven or eight pounds… in one week! Outrageous.
So tell me.. do you watch The Biggest Loser? What are your thoughts on the show?
