Normally, I wouldn’t post anything about this television show until after it was over and I could offer some type of congratulations to the overall winner. However, I was so happy to see Melissa removed from The Biggest Loser this week that I felt compelled to write something about it on the blog.
If you haven’t watched the show this season, Melissa spent most of her time trying to game the system and then acting like a martyr whenever Jillian and Bob called her out. No one bought any of her shit and it was obvious that she was lying through her teeth. Maybe she thinks that because she’s not so bright that the rest of the world isn’t so bright, but it was as clear as day that she was lying about the fact that she was putting game play above her health.
Anyway, on this week’s show Melissa gained a pound. One of the stipulations was that the person who lost the least percentage of weight this week would immediately go home. Clearly, Melissa lost this week and was sent home.
But before she left, this woman had the audacity to stand up there after she gains a pound (for the second time this season!) and act like she’s some type of inspirational story. Here’s my message to her:
Get over yourself, woman! No one gives a crap about you and your lying bullshit. I don’t know what type of snake oil you think you can sell to the rest of the nation, but it was blatantly obvious that you threw two weigh-ins and you squandered your chance at being this season’s winner. You’re an idiot.
And let this be a lesson to other people out there that might apply to be a contestant on The Biggest Loser – don’t waste your time trying to “play the game.” Instead, thank God that you have the opportunity to lose weight and attack each workout that you have with the trainers.
I was so glad that this woman was kicked off the show. She tried to play the game instead of focusing on her health and her lying, conniving ways came back to bite her in the ass. If there is any justice in this world she won’t win the “at home” competition either.
As for the rest of this season so far, I’ve been enjoying it. I think that the stories of the rest of the contestants are very compelling and I’m really interested in how Migdalia has managed to lose a bunch of weight now that her daughter is no longer on the campus. There’s a lot of emotional issues wrapped up between those two and I think that they need to get that worked out before they can really be healthy.
I liked how they spent the last week at the Olympic Training Facility – that was pretty cool. If I had to choose someone to pull for this season, I guess I would support either the orange, pink, or gray team. Not sure which one of them I like best yet, but they all seem to be really good people. So do the black and yellow teams. It’s still too early to choose who I want to win, I guess.
