The Biggest Loser – Oh Yeah We Are Back To Its Normal Pace

After watching the two latest episodes of The Biggest Loser I realised we are now back to its usual pace after the two weeks in two episodes.

Last night’s episode five minutes was spent watching the contestants  pull weights, and then another five minutes watching Daina eat a bowl of creme brulee.

Then tonight’s episode was all about trainer Michelle Bridges beating her up for eating them. “Four thousand calories? That’s almost a week’s worth of food!” screeched Michelle.  Mothers with teenage daughters were desperately trying to cover their kids ears at that point.

But hell since she won immunity she has an extra week to burn it off, and she is only 84 kgs which is positively anorexic in the loser house at this state of the competition.

Then Michelle showed she was embracing her inner Dr Phil (something Channel Ten appears to be encouraging this year in their reality shows) and went about psychoanalysing why anyone would eat that much, and after some boxing she found out that Daina had always protected her sister.  “This has got to stop,” she said.

Michelle was also rather chuffed she had elicited out of Caitlin that at age 16 she had been suicidal. This of course would not have been on her Biggest Loser application form. Yeah right.

Michelle did have a point about Caitlin standing there watching Daina exercise off her dessert booty. She could have hopped on a bike herself.

To leave the viewer with a feel good moment twenty year old Rick got a visit from his girlfriend who was pregnant as his reward for being this week’s biggest loser.

She was pregnant as his reward??? Personally, I’d want a car or something 😉

“Four thousand calories? That’s almost a week’s worth of food!” screeched Michelle.

Very apt use of the the verb “screeched” here, Raver. This quote again exposes Michelle wats-‘er-name as a dietary no-nothing.

An average adult female should be consuming closer to 2,000 calories per day. That’s 14,000 for a week, not 4,000, Michelle. Perhaps you were thinking about a mid-sized dog. FFS, even a 4-5kg lactating cat needs 600 calories daily, which weekly is more than 4,000.

Maybe they need to bring back AJay, as an obsessive calorie-counter like her, would be able to set Michelle straight on dumb statements like this.

And, and by the way, you need energy to burn fat and build lean muscle, so 571 calories per day is going to work against healthy weight loss in the mid to long term.

No wonder this show, which is really an advertising platform for dubious, quick-fix weight loss products combined with an opportunity for the rest of us non-fatties to feel smugly superior, lacks any credibility.

Oh, and don’t get me started on that strutting bogan tool, Shannon.

Culinary Boner – I agree considering Michelle thinks she is such a role model.
No wonder Geoff was in hospital his kidney’s would not have been able to handle all the ketones going through them.

Sourkraut – not many if you look at the ratings – only 725000 last night.

Have only caught glimpses of this, but… lactating cat! Still laughing! Thanks, CB.
