The Biggest Loser 2008

Ah. Well. So it would appear to be Rafferty’s Rules for this series. Sheridan certainly knows how to dupe herself and others but it wouldn’t appear that Michelle will be duped. She is really on fire this series. The good thing about temptation is that the meals were reasonable and within the “playing” capacity of the game. It was a fair challenge. Of course, I don’t think the plan was for one person to sit there and just keep eating. The show was being reasonable, the contestant not. However, the stupid walk, as it shall henceforth be called, appears to be going to put all the power in the hands of the Reds for the weigh in. So it’s not fair, not natural and not logical. Who cares? I suppose it will test those who can manage to stay focussed in spite of chaos but it might also cost someone who doesn’t deserve to be lost. I know , no one said life was going to be fair, but this is the part where I become very frustrated with the Biggest Loser because you lose good contestants for no good reason and the whole thing can get skewed in a very odd fashion. I know there is a lot of manoeuvring and game playing to go on yet because of the factors they have built in, but there has to be some sense of focus on weight loss. I’ll have to wait and see. This temptation was a good one until Sheridan hogged the food and won immunity and the walk…for stuffing her guts!
