The Biggest Loser 2008

Well, all hot air and hoo-ha and what I learned is how easy it is to get sidelined and side tracked by amateur dramatics. It was so obvious how easily people are thrown off track and focus by drama queen stuff. For all the mountaineering on the wall, for all the common sense of the Commando they were still drawn into the stuff and nonsense of hot air and away from their primary objective of exercising and getting fit. Some of what JJ was saying made sense. There was a lot of carry on. It was understandable but it is clear he is not comfortable unless he has women putting him down, men out looking for him and a reason to run away. Tends to suggest trauma and unresolved family of origin stuff because he keeps repeating the same scenario and it’s always so he can run away and be alone. He is stuck in a behaviour groove. The others obligingly play their roles. The team building stuff for the teams was fantastic but it was marginalised by a run away and that was silly. They need to get on with their lives and JJ will be helped or not, and he is clearly in need of a lot of help. The warehouse was quite funny really because it was a clear choice between cooked or not cooked but they were making it so complicated. I’d go cooked. I couldn’t eat raw food for a week. I lasted 3 days and that was it!! It also highlighted how far we have come from food sources and the sorts of things grand parents and great grand parents would have done easily.
The 50 000 dollars is going to come up and maybe to solve the JJ problem. Buy someone out of the game. I hope it’s not as easy as that. He was always going to be a gamble and maybe someone else should have had a shot unless the plan was to destabilise the Black team. Ah conspiracies and intrigue at every turn!
