I’ve heard such great things about the show “The Biggest Loser.” One of my family doctors even suggested that I watch so I would be “inspired” to lose weight (fortunately, my friend Shari told me about “Ruby,” who is full of Southern charm and inspiration). But it seems that “Season 8” of the show is laden with F-bombs, cruelty, and humiliation (“Biggest Loser Trainers Go Too Far“). As if we need a T.V. show to make a bunch of fat people feel ashamed…!
After watching the clip (from “Season 7”) below, I thought to myself, “Man, I don’t care if I do get a free t-shirt, I am *never* going on that show!” I mean, can you imagine these people “training” a child to walk? “Five more steps, you moron! I can’t believe you can’t get this walking thing down! $*#$! You lazy *#)$, stop crying, it’s only a little blood! Real one year-olds don’t need to hold on to the table for balance! GET UP, YOU PIECE OF )*U#$+!” Uh, yeah.
Props to a lady named Michele who commented on the article, “Biggest Loser Trainers Go Too Far.” She wrote, “It’s humiliating enough being a ‘fluffy’ person and on national TV with millions of people watching you. Then to have them “F”ing you and think it’s okay and you have to take it….NOT. I think they both should apologize to the contestants on national TV. Every human being deserves dignity and respect, skinny, fluffy, black or white. It’s embarassing enough to have to wear spandex on national TV….ya know.” ( I love that–“fluffy people.”)
Anyway, it’s true that the contestants should know “The Biggest Loser” road isn’t an easy one; I mean, it is “reality” television. But no one deserves to be treated like this, which is why you’ll never find me in spandex on national TV (or anywhere else for that matter).
