"The Biggest Villain"

I've watched the reality show, "The Biggest Loser," since its inception, intrigued by the courage of the contestants to be weighed weekly on national television. While each participant has been able to put their life on hold, at least until voted off of the show, to exercise and eat healthy with a group of like-minded people on national TV, it's been interesting to watch. This season, though, I've been turned off by one contestant in particular, because I haven't like the way she's "played" the game. George and I have watched the show together, and totally agree with each other on this, but I figured we were the only ones out there turned off by her game play. Well, I was glad to see a blog on Yahoo, and ensuing comments, about that contestant's performance on the show so far. If you're a "Biggest Loser" watcher like I am, read the blog post here and let me know whether you agree or disagree.

Yes, I am a fan of that show too ~ in previous seasons, I'd be crying my eyes out for most episodes, and Tuesday nights was when I did my strength training, along with the show ~ they inspired me. But this season, I couldn't get into it, because of Vicky (and her ilk ~ she dragged others down to her level).

I know they can do a lot with editing, to show a "story," but there's no way editing can account for all the ugliness we saw from her. She had to give them the material to edit. So I tried to be charitable, but I found I did not enjoy this season, and was not inspired by it. If next season is like that, I will definitely lose interest!
