Biggest Loser 2007

Strike a pose!!! This picture says it all. Gerard just could not get it together and just kept giving up and worried himself stupid because he could sustain the image of being a smooth, coping person. It all fell to pieces and he just panicked and just stopped. Look at the body language. This is so classic. Gerard feels so bad about himself. Bob worked on him, but it was Shannon who really got through with the boxing and gave Gerard to express his anger in a productive way…so it wasn’t this loser depression. Each of those trainers is expert at getting through to people…so when they are rejected out of hand, it is outrageous. Unbelievable. So, today, on the BIG Sydney Tower challenge, Gerard came up trumps. His team didn’t realise he had changed. He looked different. His eyes were different. His stance was different… and then he powerhoused it around the tower and gave his team such a shock. The reds were not far behind and Andy pushed himself to breaking point and really pulled all his stops out. That was such a positive show tonight. It showed people overcoming terror, fear, hauling as a team and there was only one snake in the grass. Damien is just brilliant. He shifts that big butt of his and was probably very fit before he gave up on himself. Mentally he is thin, so it’ll be good to see his true colours emerge. I thought that was such a lesson in inspiration tonight and they were all so plucky!
