The Biggest Loser 2008

This little lady is a force to be reckoned with. Someone described Bob and Jillian’s workouts as a cross between the Commando and Shannan and Michelle and then some. Jillian doesn’t take any wounded and Bob just pushes and pushes…and Carrianne just took it all and gave it more and more. There was nothing they could do to hurt her or bring her down because she has already lost her twin sister to the house in Australia. They have never been separated so she has faced a massive trauma and overcome it. The twins being separated has given each other unbeatable strength and courage and that is very interesting. The walk is ridiculous. Not the walk. The stupid stones and the fallout from it. Take an cohesive , positive group and just muck it up, heh? That really helps the weight. I thought it was dopey….and as Micheal said, what had he done to deserve that apart form be fat. Good point. The walk itself is very pretty and incredible country side. They should all do the walk, grab the stones and the bird baths and chuck them in the river and then sit and take in the beauty of the surroundings. If they have to eliminate someone…then they can just make a decision by consensus because this group can. The game aspect is very counter productive. Look at what Bob and Jillian did without it. Look at how hard Shannan and Michelle have got fitness, commmon sense and straight talk back in…and then the game throws all that up in the air. But some of the contestants are a bit sooky so maybe Monika needed to go home. She seemed happy enough and a lot fitter…but give me the gutsy performances of people like Carrianne and the great comments of the contestants any day.
