The Biggest Loser – The Ratings Are Not Great At The Moment
This week The Biggest Loser is struggling in the ratings, and maybe the reason is now that it is in the 7pm time slot people would be still eating dinner and they don’t want to see people puking in buckets. Also dumping a whole truck of fat probably doesn’t help either.
One thing I do like about this year is a lot of the contestants, they seem a bit more articulate then the previous series, particularly the girls.
Tonight Hayley got the contestants together for a group therapy session where they had to talk about their heartache of being alone. There were tears and it was sad when Lisa was talking about losing her son Brayden, and Simon marriage breaking down.
However I think Luke who wants “the ideal wife” needs to realise there is not one, and he will be disappointed if there is. Again James gave Michelle a look when she was talking about never having been kissed.
Tonight it was all about telling them finding out their biological age and on average they were about 15 years older then their real age. Alex who is 50 was told his biological age was 71 which must have been quite a shock.
However I did think Dr Norman was a bit insensitive about talking about Brenda’s infertility and how her weight had effected this. “How long have you been trying to have a baby?” he boomed. She broke down and said seven years. At forty she would know that even after she loses the weight that it will still be very difficult to get pregnant.
Then it was off to their trainers and Tiffiny again made her girls feel like shit by say “Twenties are the best years of my life”. I am not sure how she can be an authority on this topic as she is only 27 herself.
Also the blue team of under 30 boys appear to be slackers they were up later then 6.00am and Ryan’s only exercise appeared to be rolling around like a beach ball on the lounge room floor.
Then it was onto the immunity challenge, I am not sure why none of them were not going for it. No use taking the higher moral ground and risk of getting eliminated. It appeared the whole group had made a pact not to go for immunity which quite frankly takes the tension out of the show. Also the plate with the highest number of calories was a ham and cheese sandwich, so if you spun it just don’t have dinner. No big deal.
Oh and where is Commando we have barely seen him, except for his cameo tonight handing the nicorette patches over to Shane in a very obvious product placement moment.
What do you think of The Biggest Loser? Has it done enough this week to keep you watching?
