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.
