I’m boycotting the Biggest Loser. I know they’re really going to feel that loss when their ratings drop from 11.7 million viewers to 11,699,999 viewers. They might even have to start over with a new concept: like anorexic people putting ON weight.
If any of you watch the show, you know what happened so I don’t have to rehash it. Pretty much, I’m miffed because the person who lost the highest percentage of weight did not win the title of “Biggest Loser” and $250K. All because of this stupid “America’s Vote” most reality shows have now that I hate. America voted out the one person who has never fallen below the yellow line and has lost more than half his original weight. They voted out the champion for an athletic overeater who didn’t have a chance.
Koli was always there to win, and the viewing public doesn’t want a winner to win: they want an underdog. The moral of this story is it’s really not about weight loss; it’s about giving the people what they want. That person just doesn’t happen to be me. NBC’s loss – I’m an avid reality TV watcher. I’m moving to CBS for all reality shows from now on. Speaking of, Big Brother starts July 8. Now there’s something I can really focus all my reality tv passion on.
