The time has come for me to have an official Biggest Loser chat. Some of you may know how inspirational I find this show to be. It played a major role in my weight loss motivation. I didn't just watch the Biggest Loser every week... but thanks to Tivo and The Style Network I was able to workout to past seasons several times a week. I love working out to The Biggest Loser. Whenever I felt my motivation waning I'd turn on an old BL and there was always something about that theme song that was like the call of the Sirens and in a matter of minutes I'd be on the treadmill. Well a year later it is still inspirational to me.
But enough about that what I really want to talk about is all the information that has come out this year on the show... things that had previously seemed somewhat cloaked in mystery... and of course just my general thoughts on the season.
They work out 6 hours a day.
They eat (at least the Black Team) 1500 calories a day.
The Last Chance Workout is the morning of the weigh-in.
They get a "Cheat Day" the day after weigh-in. (Now Bob said this but I'm unclear if he meant an entire day, a meal, or an item... since he was holding a giant plate of mozzarella sticks.)
This season I have found the plugs for daily vitamins and gum to be so over the top and cheesy that it takes away from the show for me.
Mark & Jay are the biggest cry babies of all time and that definitely distracts from the show for me!
I was hoping the Bernie & Brittany would fall in love... I'm still holding out for that one (yes I know he has a girlfriend!).
I'm surprised the producers let the teams get divided so unevenly once they switched to Blue vs Black.
And last but not least.... Bob is being portrayed in such a negative light this season that he kind of seems like a jerk to me now.
Any Biggest Loser thoughts?
