Also, if you watched the season with Abby in it, I don't know how you couldn't cry over her losing her husband, her daughter and her brand new baby in a car wreck all on the same day. I was a WRECK during that episode.

I don't watch much TV and only saw a couple of episodes of celebrity Biggest Loser, but I remember crying later about how I wish I had the gumption to just DO IT and how much easier it would be if I was FORCED to do it like they are on the show.

It's kind of cruel though to vote people off and to make it a race. Why do shows always have to make it a contest? Do they think people won't watch if it's more of a "let's help you all get fitter and thinner" and compare after a year and tell your stories.

I started watching BL last season and went back and watched a few of the early seasons, but yeah, I would prefer watching the weight loss when there wasn't the voting people off, game playing, confrontation type conflict and drama.

I only watched the second season of DietTribe, which unfortunately also seemed to be the last season, because I've always wanted to do a triathlon and that was the goal they trained to do during the season. But I really enjoyed it because it was a group of friends working together and they had to accomplish weight loss goals as a team in order to get rewards, they were in their homes the whole time so still had to deal with family stress, temptations, etc. Oh and the trainer was HOT imo.

itunes has both seasons 1 and 2, I bought season 2 a while back for 2.99 for the whole season. Sometimes I think about getting season 1 and seeing if I'd like it as much, but I'm a cheapskate and they want 7.99 for less episodes for that season.

It makes me sad that it's not around now though!

I've cried at hearing some of the stories of the contestants and what they've gone through.
