The Biggest Loser

I get so motivated watching this show and wondered if there are other people out there that love it as much as I do?

Ironically, despite the fact that I have never seen the show, I started a B.L. contest at my office. It is going great so far & together people have lost dozens of lbs of weight, so that is great. Is it true that girls never win?

No, no one likes this show. That's why there are a dozen previous threads on the subject in this forum that you failed to search for.

Wow, ha ha 11:11 you are mean ;^)
I think there should be a notice from PT above the start a new thread button warning that if you start something without checking the search you will be laughed at. Good idea huh?

I like the show, but lately i am getting really tired of the way they plug in their sponsors and things like that.

What are commercials for!!!!

11:56...I understand from a recent conversation with a network exec that product placement is the future of TV because of TiVo (which, since I don't have it, I assume allows you to program out the commercials somehow). Not a trend I like at strikes me as a pretty insidious form of brainwashing.

My other complaint about the show is that, like every maturing reality show, the producers are manipulating/loosely scripting big chunks of it to boost entertainment value. I think that's how they've turned a 1-hour show into 2 hours. So I've gone from being a rabid BL addict to not caring if I miss the first 30-60 minutes. But I never miss the Last Chance Workout and the weigh-in!

wow, sorry I brought it up! I was on another weight loss site and they were all talking about all the details of the show and thought someone on this site might have been motivated too. Guess we don't need that here!

I LOVE the show and this is the first season I've watched. The product placements actually crack me up - like Bob and Dan discussing the One a Day vitamins last night. I just watched The Truman Show the other day and a funny part of the movie was people slipping in product endorsements and it reminded me of that.

And it never ceases to amaze (and completely captivate) me - that you can take 45 minutes to have 7 people weigh in! Oh, I'm hooked!

2:43 - make it your mission to ignore the irrelevant, unhelpful, chastising responses you get on here. If we all did that maybe they'd go away! Post whatever you want - even if it's been brought up 100x before!!

I'm a huge fan of the show!

I love the show and even record it to DVD. I have 3 seasons so far. It is so inspiring. Even if I can't lose as quickly or work out as hard I see it can be done and even with people who have major amounts of weight to lose.

I think the biggest thing that I have gotten from the show so far is to be proud of your accomplishments. I have lost 190 ponds so far and really didn't see it as a big deal until about a month ago. Yet when they got to having lost 50 pounds they think that is a major big deal. And I do too, for them. I get to being a cry baby most episodes there is something that touches my heart.
I remember last season I wanted so bad to be in the place where I could be dieting along with them but I just wasn't there yet. So glad I am now.

Loved Tim Gunn last night. Loved it!
Oh and the product endorsements. Yes it is a bit cheesy but some people don't know the need to suppliment your diet with vitamins. Or how aboout Jillian showing them how to cook with the zip loc steamer bags. I have them and never use them. Just reminded me of it.
I wish they would spend more time talking about what they eat so we can have a better idea. Even if it is endorsing one product over another.

I am the 11:56 poster and I dont think i was being "annoying, or chastising" I said that I like the show, but I also mentioned something about the show that I didnt like. I really dont tihnk I was contributing to the conversation in a negative way.
