Biggest Loser (TV) Talk - No Spoilers!

I just finished watching most of the Biggest Loser.

I wasn't going to watch, because I don't like the couples format, but I do like watching the first week...sort of. Anyhow, I have these thoughts:

1) Did anyone else notice how much Alison and the cast were sweating during the weigh in? You'd think it would be in the budget to spring for a fan or two during taping? And if that wasn't in the budget, could they not have paused to mop the poor girl down? It was seriously gross. At least the contestants were in their workout gear. Poor Alison had sweat running down her chest!

2) I like the twist (which is mentioned in the show description on satellite, so this is not a spoiler), and now may have to watch

3) I saw the preview for next week, and now I'm dying to know who would dare make that cutie patutie Bob angry. If they give his lovely, gorgeous face any mad lines, I'm gonna be kicking one of the Biggest Loser's butt!!!

So, I guess I will watch one more week. It is quite soon to have a new season.....and I didn't even watch any of the last one! I don't know why, but I can't watch that show without a glass of wine. Which I count!!!!


  1. I usually haven't really watched BL in the past, but now with THIS challenge for us, I am getting into watching the older seasons and now this one! :) It's exciting to think that you can change your life like that if only you COMMIT!

    And yes, I noticed the sweat as well. Poor Ali!

    PS - Thank you for your positive words of encouragement on my blog! It really helps to have that kind of support! :)

    Best wishes to you for tomorrow (I don't often say "good luck" because I don't think lunk has anything to do with it)!

  2. IT seems the show has really gone towards shock value. I can't believe how big everyone is. There are no 'small' people on there. It used to be that people would start at 220 or 240 and a few over 300 but it seemed the majority is over 300. It is going to be tough for them. Wow!

  3. We totally noticed how much everyone was sweating. Even Jillian was "glistening" and one of the guys on the brown team was soaking through the back of his shirt. I was wondering if it was intended to make everyone even more uncomfortable or what?
    I felt bad that they sent most people home. They all looked so pathetic laying in rooms alone. What a hard decision all of them had to make. But I'm waiting for the next twist that'll have to do with the home contestents losing weight. (I'm guessing)
    And yes, Bob getting THAT pissed. It's funny that Jillian looked happy to see him so pissed off. I just love Jillian. She would be my choice because I need her no nonsense, no excuse, aggrevated, yelling self to keep me working my hardest. I just love that show.

  4. I am pretty sure that Alison was pregnant during the filming, so I'm guessing that's one of the reasons why she sweat so much.
    I know who Bob is yelling at based on what they showed us at the shows opening - do you want to know? I don't want to spoil it for you if you don't.

  5. At first I was mad at BL because it seemed kind of mean to send all those poor people home. Most seemed so desperate. But the twist is interesting.

    Buster is a Norwich terrier. He's a sweetie! You should post a picture of your little dog on your blog too!

  6. I missed it last night but will probably tune in next week. Sounds like an interesting season but wtf with all the sweat?? Weird.

    Don't sweat (hehe) the weigh in. You know you feel amazing and that's the important thing (I know you've heard this a million times but it's true!!)

  7. Last night was my first experience with BL. Can't decide if I like it or not. But I think I just may watch it to be able to look at Bob on a weekly basis :o)
