Biggest Loser 2007

Last year I laughed my head off when the teams were playing soccer. It was fun and very funny. A great show. Well, last night’s episode was a classic and mainly because of this lady. She is one of the new contestants along with Laura to replace the two who left. The timing is brilliant. The choice superb. It made everyone forget Gerard breaking ranks and playing for himself instead of the team. Damien just doesn’t seem to get phased by anything. He is remarkably cool, fair and level headed. Makes me wonder how he lost control of his weight. He’s bright, he can think, he’s kind and he has a charitable personality. He is strong and doesn’t lack courage. I do wonder how he got to be so big. This P’eta ,though, is a force to be reckoned with. She is a lady with a good sense of self, some real strength and yet, she has lost the plot. The one thing this show does for everyone is make them strong and happy. The “old” ones from last year just look so well and are so confident. Kelly’s face was brilliant…in fact it was just hilarious watching the reactions and to think Gerard got off the hook that easily!!! He must be laughing. Laura needs the house more than anyone and she needs the trainers more than anyone. She is 20 and full of guilt and responsibility. She is full of shame. She is very fragile and so at risk. She is too young to bear all that burden and I look forward to watching her blossom because I sense the others have a feeling of compassion for her. The others have come a long way and are real team players. P’eta wants the money and has not yet become a team player. I think she’d be agood team player. She will change the dynamics and it will be interesting to see whether the others can still look after themselves. What a great move and twist that was!!

  1. I think it’s great to see them not worry and just get into it. I mean, that’s how they change by caring about themselves and not what other people think. Yes, she is going to be a tough challenger , that’s for sure.
