I don't know if I'm being overly sensitive, but I was really turned off with the cameras 2 inches away from a huge fat person SHOVELLING food into their mouth...i know they ate it that way but it was gross...

and what's with everyone CRYING every 5 minutes?? OMG it's telling the world all fat people eat that way and CRY because they have no control over their emotions and wear them on their sleeve

UGH it turned me right off tonight!!

rant officially over :D

I watched this tonight, and I could not believe the amount of crying people. I understand it's a tough thing to be away from your family and to be fighting essentially for you life, but MAN UP a little people, you don't have to cry at EVERYTHING. It's only week 2 for goodness sake.

If this keeps up, I'm totally turning biggest loser into a drinking game. Every time someone cries, bottoms up!

How is this thread spoiler-free when it's revealing what just happened tonight? :?: I haven't watched it yet. I'll be back once I have!

:lol: We west coaster's are always last, aren't we?

I guess I don't consider these spoilers, since the crying and disgusting eating shots have been happening EVERY week in the last three seasons.

The contestants have learned that they get more screen time, the more they cry, and the more extreme their comments. For example, what Bette said that she eats every day (I won't reveal it) how can anyone of any size eat that every day? I don't believe it. Considering, even the cheapest would be about $3 - that would mean more than a $1000 and $566,000 calories (165 lbs) per year habit. Don't buy it for a minute.

the people on this season are getting on my nerves. All they do is whine. I would switch places with them in a heartbeat........

what spoilers??? someone ate and someone cried?? HUH?

01-09-2008, 12:27 AM
Yes, those are some of them. ;)

Yes...I sometimes DVR it and fast forward through the commercials. I'm watching it now. ;)

lol eating and crying!!! omg! you guys are too funny.

01-09-2008, 09:19 AM
I watched a bit last night, and yes it was disturbing to see the guys shovelling the food into their mouth. They sure caught heck the next day!!

BTW, I fell asleep, did Matt lose any weight?

01-09-2008, 11:01 AM
could someone spoil it for me please....I was trying to watch it at the gym while i was willing myself through some cardio and it was so wonderfully interrupted by the NH Primaries....the entire middle section of the show was cut in by a Mitt Romney speech....who I happen to think is a huge weiner (I'm from MA...I lived with him as a flip flopping absentee governor while my city fell apart...no offense to anyone who favors him, I totally respect other people's opinions)
Anyway...I'm into politics, I rock the vote, but I also only watch one show and now I'm cranky that I missed it. Politicians aren't very motivational on the elliptical!

I'm way to busy to have a chance to see it again before it's all done and it's a season marathon on Bravo sometime next year so it would be great if someone could fill me in on what i missed....I don't want to ruin it for anyone else so send it in a PM if necessary.

:?:We don't?


01-09-2008, 11:23 AM
I have never seen so many men crying. Now I don't have anything against guys crying but I did find myself counting. lol I think I said something to my partner like "they need to suck it up it's only been two weeks!" Who knows, I might be crying every five minutes if I was away from home for two weeks....crying for joy ;)

01-09-2008, 12:27 PM
The eating shots were disgusting, the way it was shoveled in there...BUT i have to say I was thinking "That's how I look when I binge. How gross. I never want to be that way again." So it did something for me, I saw myself there and was completely disgusted.

01-09-2008, 01:49 PM
I have to admit that if I were on that show...I'm pretty sure I'd be crying EVERY minute! I wear my emotions on my sleeve more than anyone else I know!

Maybe that's why we like each other so much Rhonda! :lol:

Not trying to point fingers to another section of the forum or anything, but we post spoilers during the show in the Biggest Loser Forum

That how everyone looks when they eat and a camera is 1 inch from their face. Rather someone is eating lettuce and a carrot or as thin as a rail. It's funny how that always do that on the news to emphasize someone is a glutton every night on the news, but only after the headless butt shot.

I love the Biggest loser. I don't really know why. Half the time I believe they are torturing those people, then half the time I'm cracking up at the silly half baked stunts they have them do. Then when it's all over I'm excited for the winner. Drama.

01-09-2008, 06:51 PM
Ah, yes....the wonderful headless butt shot, followed directly by a fat person shoving food into their mouth.

Those have always bothered me, and made me feel terrible!

01-10-2008, 11:30 AM
Funny story, my partner's aunt was on the news. She was headless of course, butt swinging in the wind during an "Obesity in America is...." but family members outed her by her shape, her favorite outfit and monster bag she carried all the time.

She fessed up that she was outside the building in the background. They still tease her about it, good thing she's a good sport. She informed us she wouldn't last a 2 days on the biggest loser, but she loves to watch it.

01-10-2008, 11:44 AM
That's funny you say that because I was watching some show the other day that had that headless butt shot and I thought boy how embarrassed would I be if one day I was watching tv and saw my butt on there. And I always wondered how people felt when they saw their butt shot. Guess it would be good if it served as a wake up call for that person to get healthy.

01-10-2008, 12:36 PM
I think it's rude that they do that without people knowing what's up. I don't believe you can shame people into losing weight. Matter of fact she's just as big as always. What's cool about her is that she doesn't care what people think of her and she's pretty happy with herself. I like that in people, no matter what size they are.

She is an pretty old lady too. She's also very healthy, no diabetes, no cancer, no heart problems, no hypertension. She's also very active. That's the thing with that sort of thing, if you are clicking off health problems associated with weight loss you should make sure the fat people in the background actually have said health problems.

01-10-2008, 12:48 PM
I agree with the close ups being NASTY!!! Maybe I should put a video camera on the fridge for next time I start shoveling it in. Bet that might put an end to things. :)
Any how I have a couple questions for anyone that may be interested in answering...?
1. How many calories are they consuming at this stage? (Question be cause Paul said he had 1000 cals left because he didn't drink his shake... BIG SHAKE I guess)
2. I missed out on when the host said what the top losers won. She had mention a prize but I missed it. Anyone know?
Have a great rest of the week... Keep on losing!

01-10-2008, 04:35 PM
They never got to the prize as far as I saw either, jaxnthbx.

As for the crying...they are working out umpteen hours a day and are on restricted calories. I'd be pretty worked up as well. I've done Jillian's workouts - (from her book i have to imagine her yelling at me). They make me wanna cry sometimes. 'Til after ;)

Plus what fun would it be with no drama? :lol:
