The Biggest Loser – Just When You Thought You Were Safe You Are Not

The blue team thought they were in a win-win situation as they got to eat chocolate and they were safe in the house for another week after winning immunity in the temptation challenge.

However luckily The Biggest Loser does not have to abide by the ‘false and misleading’ provision in the Trade Practices Act as yet again they changed the rules to ensure the blue team may actually lose their immunity.

There was a twist when they got to the next challenge where usually there is an opportunity to gain a two kilo weight advantage for a team it was the opposite. This time they were told the team which finished the obstacle course last would get two kilos added to their weigh-in weights. Suddenly the blue teams immunity was looking very shaky indeed.  The two girls team were safe with the red team coming in first, but the guys teams were burdened by the extremely overweight and unfit Graham and Hamish. As usual the viewer needs to tune in Monday to see who lumbers in last.

Also Simon’s ex-wife has now spoken to news.com.au, in relation to my blog post related to her unleashing  on Facebook for not telling the truth about why their marriage actually broke down.

She told News.com.au:

Oceana Glennon told news.com.au she was “disgusted” when she heard her former partner of 15 years accuse her walking out because of his ballooning weight on Tuesday night’s episode of the weight loss program.

Hurley told the audience:

“I loved being married every second of the time that I was married. Woke up one morning and my wife meets me in the kitchen and she says, ‘I can’t do this anymore.’ ‘What do you mean?’ She said “I can’t do this, us,’ and I said ‘you mean, us, like married’ and she said ‘yes.’

“Of course the next question that comes is ‘why?’ and she says ‘you’re fat.’ That one moment was the most devastating moment of my whole life.”

 But Oceana, a qualified weight loss coach, has denied this version of events.

“As soon as we got married, Simon started putting on weight, Simon had been grossly overweight for most all of our married life, so if I was going to leave him because he was fat, I would have done that long before,” she said.

Oceana said financial difficulties contributed to the relationship breakdown.

“Had there not been a financial problem I would never have left the marriage.”

In a statement to news.com.au, Hurley said there were a number of reasons for the split.

“Marriage breakdowns are complex, and my weight was absolutely a contributing factor. But as always there are many things that contribute to the situation and I certainly don’t blame my wife in any way. I know and understand that I need to change and this journey at Biggest Loseris the start of my transformation. I wish her nothing but the best.”

Oh wow, a qualified weight loss coach married to a morbidly obese man. Its ‘The Odd Couple’ all over again!

By the way, RR, (LOL not trying to sound like a smartass but) the Trade Practices act has been repealed by the Competition and Consumer Act as of 2010. After JUST learning about that damn thing for 3 months even I feel like I should bring a misleading and deceptive conduct claim against TBL.

You feel for his wife having to play second fiddle to a refridgerator.

The silky skills of TBL camera crew deserve a mention for the stomach churning shots of Hamish’s ar$e crack being force fed into a drainpipe in last night’s challenge,too.

I feel sorry for Hamish but he does need to toughen up. He cries all the time which does him no good. I didnt think many boys would be so scared to swing out from a rope into a river, they all seem to love doing that, my boys certainly did growing up. He did work hard though and tried his best. keep going Hamish, you’ll get there!

Yeah, I achieved a 2 and a 1/2 somersault into the Murray in my early 20’s. From a rope tied to a Red Gum. ( Moselle and Fruity Gordo assisted)
Impresses the girls.

“I wish her nothing but the best.”

If my ex-wife was a Norse Germanic Pagan clairvoyant who hangs out on a Wicca site and sports the most scarily spelt New Age first name I’ve seen in many a year, then I’d be saying the same.

Just a hunch but I believe HIS very of marriage breakdown overs hers.

Are you kidding me – this woman – Simons Ex is out for her 5 seconds of fame – This guy seems so genuine that it seems his ex is bitter and starving for attention – get over yourself. He has not slandered you just given his version of the marriage breakdown. Get over yourself ex wife

So a ‘qualified’ weight loss coach is so bad at her job, her husband has to resort to an appearance on TBL.

Great advertising for her…..

She probably tried to put a ‘loving mood’ hex on him but got the ingredients wrong and hexed ‘loving food’ instead.

Just remember there are three sides to every story – you side, their side and the truth.
