Is anybody watching Biggest Loser? For whatever reason, I don’t care as much for the show when they do “couples.” What do you think?
This post was originally going to be about the people who have been kicked off, but I just have to talk about something else first. Melissa!
If you’re watching the show, then you know that last week Melissa and her husband had immunity and when they weighed in she had gained a pound. When she gained a pound, she acted totally surprised! Bob & Jillian said she was just “playing the game,” which was fine but they wished she would just admit to it.
Now, this week only Melissa’s husband’s weight counted for their percentage to be above the yellow line. And surprise, surprise! She only lost one pound. When she saw the one pound she started talking about how discouraged she was and how she just wanted to go out and “eat a cheeseburger!” Bob & Jillian got pissed and told her they knew she “threw” the weigh-in and wished she would just admit to it! It escalated from there and Melissa said she was being honest, and didn’t like being called a liar, and blah blah blah.
So, what do you think? I totally think she threw it, but my husband seems to disagree. Come on, at one point when they were yelling at her she was actually smirking!
Ok, onto what I was originally posting about! Last week and this week, one of the mothers got kicked off. When I saw last week that it was a mother and daughter going to elimination, I was really worried. Do you remember the season last year with Helen and her daughter?
On that season when Helen and her daughter were below the yellow line, Helen stayed and her daughter went home. That made me SO mad! What made me mad was that when it came time for both of them to talk to the other players and say their opinion on who should stay, Helen only fought for herself. Her daughter tearfully said her mom should stay too. I don’t care how fat you are, or what you have going on at home, if you are on the show with your kid, then you fight for them to stay! That is your job as a parent. Ugh. After that happened I could never root for Helen.
So, last week when the purple team (mother/daughter) was up for elimination I was so afraid that it would be a replay of Helen and her daughter. I may have even yelled at the TV. I may have said, “I don’t care if you can’t feel your feet (the mom had diabetic neuropathy), you go home! And your daughter stays!” And, phew. That’s what happened, the mother never even thought twice about asking them to keep her daughter there. It was the same scenario last night with Maria and Michael.
I was so glad that both these moms (and the other players) did the right thing. When you have a child that’s what you do, it’s like the law.
One more thing… What’s up with Jillian’s boobs? She is showing more cleavage than ever this season, but her boobs are just weird. Like saggy old lady boobs, or something.
P.S. Bob Harper is still hot, and I almost want to gain weight so I can go on the show and “hug it out” with him. I’m just sayin’.
