The Biggest Loser 2008

On and on and on. On and on. I am beginning to think that there must have been a deal struck between Cosi and Channel 10 for him to play a dedicated role…as commentator and then acting out the things people need to learn on a weight loss programme. I can see Biggest Loser genuinely wants to help and motivate as many epople as possible this year. It is a show on a mission and it is very genuine and hardworking in that respect….but oh, I was so fed up listening. There are other contestants. They have families, they have personalities, they have problems..and we heard from Cosi, Garry, Kirsten and Alison and practically no one else got a look in tonight in the hour episode. No wonder Sam was sliding down the settee with such a comatose look on his face. Then there was the stupid walk with the stupid stone. Change weight loss with a female at the weigh in. Oh ? But someone puts on weight. Why? Did Cosi set a food binge going? He doesn’t need to worry too much about what he ate…the others, besides Bryce, are more susceptible. Bryce could wear it as well. Cosi is into full on strategy and as he said, he is there to win. He is always arguing strategy and using your head…so maybe his head has been working overtime. Who knows? Why would someone put on weight the way they have been working out? Seeing their families would have been disturbing as well as a thing which brings great joy. Then there was the swim Kirsten romped in, the volleyball match Shannan and Michelle won against Jillian and Bryce…and yes, Bryce was quite right to point out that he is Australian. That whole thing is embarrassing. We have got 4 great trainers…about time our ones showed a bit more grace.The ones who didn’t make it onto the show and who are doing it online are going really well and are looking great. I am sure they are looking at some of the contestants who got on and their behaviour and wondering why they were left out. There are some great people there who are really down to earth and hard working.So now we’ve talked up Kirsten to win…which man is going on Monday? I’d actually like to see Michelle lose more weight because, like Bryce, she is changing a lot both physically and mentally. I can’t believe it is Bryce at the beginning of the show
…and Michelle and Cosi look so different now as well. I can hardly believe they are the same person. Fat can be so distorting. I’ve learned that.
