Over to you Gabby Millgate:
I’ve been asked by Reality Ravings to write a guest blog about last night on excess baggage WED 29 Feb on Go!
As I am a contestant on Excess Baggage my perspective is going to colour this whole blog (…as being informative & self indulgent is such a rare opportunity).
My perspective is this :I watch the show & tweet after a day of workouts & challenges.
LOCATION: GOLD COAST
IN A NUTSHELL:High rise stairs from hell with aspects of Gold Coast Meter-maid
BEST TWEET: @MrsMRecommends “might have guessed Ajay wouldn’ do it #shirker I feel for the camera and sound crew having to do it! #excessbaggage”
Firstly the most important info:
WHO VOMITED? Nathan…its his usual reaction to anything extreme.
WHO NEARLY DIES? Kate DeRugio AND Nathan
Lets start with Darryn and Lisa (RED TEAM).
They come last again but not before @MarniKelly tweeted “@lusheslamour call @DarrynLyonsMrP geriatric & a cockatoo in 1 show,brilliant”.
The Orange team with Dippa and Lana continue to delight me. Lana unique turn of phrase describing Dippa’s frustration made judge @joannanutrition tweet this “Thank goodness Dipper is a gent I kept my teeth :)”.
The Blue team K-Fed /Renea showed us love and exhaustion. It’s amazing how K-fed pulls all the chicks…right up 78 floor of stairs. and Renae seemed to do it effortlessly…Is she a robot from the future sent back in time to loose weight?
He said I love you and she heaved onto his chest…..which is understandable 78 floors with Matt Purple team behind her…somewhere down a few flights a giant man
on a mission to win.
It was like watching something from a horror movie.
Then Nathan vomited (in his team colour-yellow), and then Kate nearly died.
Ben (my teammate) came to the rescue and got her to safety, but to do that they had to keep climbing.
Watching this made me ask some important questions.
What is the purpose of the competition element?
Is it survival of the fittest?
If it was for Ben he would have kept walking and left Kate to be taken care of by someone else.
Helping your mate no matter what team you’re on, seems to be at Ben’s core.
How do you score that in a competition?
Are we on a battlefield or a playground?
I’m glad this show is about choice.
Me…I was very brave and waited really hard at the top having taken the elevator.
I closed my eyes and imagined sending Ben energy…dunno if it worked
That can’t be measure either.
Thursday Night March 1 is the first Elimination. Who will be in the bottom two?
Who do you think will be standing in front of the judges explaining and justifying why they deserve to escape ELIMINATION?!!
Everybody’s worried. Everybody should be. Understandable
