Excess Baggage – Ajay Rochester And Matt Win

Excess Baggage continued to differentiate itself from The Biggest Loser by showing at the finale last night that there were contestants who had not lost a lot of weight.

After the calibration of points using a formula for health that was impenetrable (unless you had a Masters of Mathematics), the purple team of Ajay Rochester and Matt won the $100,000. Ajay’s portion goes to her selected charity.

Is AJ’s charity herself?

Beat me to it with that one,Paul.

The prize money should go to Centrelink.

Oh no!!!!! We will be hearing about how good she is…..

I don’t get it.

Okay, I couldn’t make it through every episode but the ones I did see had Ajay not competing, Ajay having ‘words’ with the judges and ‘words’ with her partner.

I take it her partner’s fitness must have REALLY improved, as that is the only way I can contemplate that Ajay could be part of the team that shed the most excess baggage.

Feeling seriously ripped off!

95,000 viewers for finale. No wonder Ajay has kept her mouth shut.

She will be blaming the show once she put the weight back to get some publicity.

Don’t know where you get your figures from, lp. This is from TV Tonight who takes theirs off the Oztam ratings:

“The pair won $100,000, half of which goes to Rochester’s chosen charity, No Hate Campaign. With just 44,000 viewers watching on Wednesday night, that’s a cost of more than $2 per viewer (not including production costs).”

Maybe Ch9 should have picked up Ten’s cast-off Renovators instead, which was still pulling >700,000 on a bad night.

Hey RR, any chance of recaps for The Amazing Race, Celebrity Apprentice and Project Runway this week?

AJ must be SPEWING over not being able to get her hands on the cash

I hope the TV stations bury Ajay now. It’s clear the public dont like her
