The Biggest Loser 2008

Is the Red team a viper’s nest or what? Didn’t I say they were a viper’s nest? They are shocking they are so into scheming and strategy…by their way of it. They think no one can notice, that is how bad they are. They think no one can actually set them up because they are not a cohesive team who cares about each other…nor anyone else. So they do not notice. They are each totally about themselves and they don’t care what they do to “win”. It’s laughable but it’s pretty horrible too. To them everyone is a means to their own end and everyone is dispensable .They will do whatever it takes. How Machiavellian. I didn’t think it was a good idea to have twins on the show. For a start it means one family gets two shots at the prizes and benefits. For seconds there is twinship which is very difficult to break. Nicole was a pretty sad case tonight the way she was manipulating the tug of war and I’d say it was enough evidence to disqualify her. If John could go for breaking the heart rules she has to go for breaking the sportsmanship/fairplay rules.I’d love everyone in the house to see that. There is a limit which has to be drawn on conniving, surely? I thought it was outrageous but Carrieanne showed herself to be a good egg. Michelle is actually looking the the weak link in an otherwise awesome Black team. It is great to have some super competitiors. It has really lifted the show but Michelle was starting to sound like one of the Red team and that is not a good sign. Bob and Jillian have trained them well and the Commando has knocked them into shape. Michelle’s whittering on is disappointing really. The Blues are fantastic. They are winning with love. They love Sam to bits and he thrives with them and they nurture each other. Love is their strength and so is respect. Sam is such a wee puppy and he was just wagging his tail when he got a big hug from his pound puppy Mum Alison and a rub on the head from his big adopted brother Michael. Shannan loves and values him and Kirsten just thinks he’s neat. With that much love he just fights like hell to do the best he can. At 19 he shows a lot more depth and maturity than Michelle. The tug of war was fantastic and so gruelling .It must be getting towards the end of the series because we have been left on a cliffhanger. I want Michael to win because someone destroyed his spirit and in this show he is remembering who he is. It would be great for him to win. The Blacks have power housed it in with strength and strategy but I don’t want that twin thing to come into it. It’ll stick like toxic glue to Carrieanne and that isn’t fair on her. My final four are Michael, Sam, Kirsten and Carrieanne but I think Bryce is just fantastic and has come such a long way, so he has to be in there too…so okay, I have a final five.
