The Biggest Loser 2008

Since it’s daylight saving, let’s turn back the clock. Kirsten is second behind Cosi on the leader board and therefore a big threat. Garry won immunity by stuffing his face. He went on the walk which let him swap his weigh in weight with a female contestant so he chose Kirsten because she is the biggest female threat. This protects his ally Cosi. So tonight, Cosi, who claims to be playing with his head and making business decisions…voted for Bryce. Garry had gained weight and gave that to Kirsten in the swap so technically she gained weight. The game is going to a lot of trouble to confuse things. Weight gain and face stuffing are condoned and rewarded so Kirsten gets to be up for elimination when she has done absolutely everything right and Bryce gets to be there because he didn‘t lose a lot of weight this week.. Garry put on the weight. Garry. No one else. He got immunity. He got to stay. He should have been there next to Bryce. So we are all pretty annoyed with this and the fact that Cosi went on a binge which could have destabilised the others in what are supposed to be supervised conditions and then announces, I am over it now and becomes the biggest loser of the week. Big risk for a foodaholic ,as they all are. And yes, you can get over binges. I guess it’s the principal of what the show is trying to teach and if it were teaching get over it, then Bryce and Kirsten have paid a pretty high price and the viewers are not being taken very seriously. Bryce has been a model contestant and he has gone off the show now. Such a deprivation! He looks bloomin’ fantastic and his speech was brilliant. He truly is the biggest loser in both action, deed and thought…and he is hot stuff now and he and his girlfriend are bound to be so happy. But he has been denied a right to be a winner when he has had nothing but winning ways and he has survived so many challenges. He has sent home all the biggest and best messages. But no prizes for him. That’s the bit which is really getting to us. His gift of the watch to Sam and his encouragement of the youngster was a truly kind and thoughtful gesture. Bryce is not stupid. If the males don’t go, there cannot be a female winner and if it has to get this convoluted to get a female winner, well, what does that say about women? Kirsten should not have been there. Garry should have been. None of the other contestants have eaten their way through the series…but the ones who have are reaping some handsome rewards. So , it’s off to Hawaii and someone will be eliminated. I am looking forward to seeing Sam in that environment. He deserves to be allowed to grow. The show has smothered him….and I want to see Michelle lose more weight. She is going to look so good and she has to learn to stand on her own two feet now. I’d like to think the two younger contestants will get a break at some stage.
