Biggest Loser (maybe a spoiler if you watch)

So, I was watching the show last night. They had to pedal pedal boats across a bay and then climb (walk really) up a nice sized hill (some might call it a small mountain). Anyway, I thought it was really awesome when most of Jillian's crew went down the hill to help the last guy get up the hill....that showed real heart in these people. I liked that. I hope he can change his life....must suck to be 19 and in that bad of a condition.

Jillian Michaels is one of the few celeb types that really lights my fire.

yeah, I watched it too. That was pretty cool.

So far its a lot different than last season. There was a backstabbing biatch last season who did nothing but shady and evil things the whole season. She totally was there for the money and I have no doubt she'll put much of it back on (like winner of 1st season I've heard). To see everybody going back to help that last guy up was quite amazing...almost got me teary eyed.

Yeah that was great last night!!!!!

I hated the last season for all the game play and backstapping, they should reduce the price money down, they already won their life's back, what more do they want.

Yeah....that's an awesome idea!!!

Personally, I never watched it before last season. I'm not sure why I thought this, but I thought it was a show that was really about making fun of the fat people and I hated that and refused to watch it. Then talking to my girlfriend last year she told me it was totally not that at all and talked me in to watching the first episode.

I was hooked instantly. I'm usually not much of a reality show spectator, but I love the message this one sends and what its all about. Most (not all, but MOST) get it. They realize they are there to change their lives and that's the real reason. I love that about the show.

They have the guys burn 6000 calories a day and the girls 4000.

Would love to get the body bugg (calorie monitor) that they wear, but little to expensive right now.

I looked into that..its like $300. I'll just estimate my burn based on weight and time and go from there. Down to 175 as of this morning, so must be doing ok with it.

I've seen ads to get it for like $200 instead of $300. However, I came across a review somebody did once, and even ended up emailing with them about it. They weren't overly impressed. Especially with the hooking up to your computer and downloading data and such....it seems the software is pretty bad and hard to use.

Good point, just getting that boot camp gratis should suffice.

Wait, do they get voted off? If they do, then there should be some carrot to make it worth lasting to the end, but anyway... the end result should really be reward enough.
