Biggest Loser About to Leave Campus November 25, 2009

Tags: ,

This week is the final week on campus. The people left are: Alan, Rudy, Liz, Danny, and annoying Amanda. Suzie Orman is here to visit…to talk about wealth and health. $147 billion dollars a year are spent on obesity related diseases. Everyone is having a one and one session with Suzie. Suzie is really playing into this- We go to the gym and there are 5 treadmills, they must answer the questions on the treadmill and will win $1000 every time they answer a question right. Have I mentioned I love Allison Sweeney? She is amazing.  How much do Americans spend on gastric bypass a year…..$4.4 billion!!!!!!! Alan takes home $4,000 which makes me happy- because he is the best.

I doubt I originated that quip but it certainly is true.  You can easily zone out to The Hills, The City, and Real World Road Rules: The Ruins.  I can and I have so let’s talk about what’s happening on them!

 

On The Hills, dumb pretty Audrina decided that after last week’s meeting, Justin is clearly not over her and since we’ve always known that she isn’t over him, it seemed (to her) absolutely appropriate to have dinner with him and tell him they should get back together.  The only problem: Justin didn’t agree and insinuated that he’s still interested in Kristen since she “did something different to him”.  What, fingered his ass???  I bet Aud would do that for you, too, JB — you just need to ask! 

 

Then we have that dumbass Spencer, who decided he was so concerned that Heidi was going to get knocked up that he went to a vasectomy consultation.  He assumed it was totally reversible whenever he wanted it to be, but when the doctor told him they considered that to be permanent because a reversal doesn’t always work, he skedaddled the hell out of there.  When Heidi found out, though, she reminded him that he knew damn well she wanted babies when they got married so marrying her must have been a huge mistake.  His response: a loss for words, which almost never happens!

Week 9….

Everyone is talking about their A game…..
Danny, Alan, Shay, Amanda, Rudy, Dan, Rebecca and Liz… Two players will be eliminated this week. The person with the lowest percentage of weight loss…below the red line and that is automatic elimination. 3 people will fall below the ‘line’.

Pop Challenge: jumping up towards a wall with tennis balls, carrying the balls to your bucket. Amanda and Liz have to sit out…There has been a lot of people this season who have to sit out because of an injury. This is an intense challenge. Prize for pop challenge= 1 pound advantage at the weigh-in. Alan and Rebecca so close…Alan wins. I like Alan.  Alison is awesome. She is just such a good host. Amanda and Rebecca…walking around. Younger vs. Older. Danny and Liz walking around….they are both discussing the young vs. old. Amanda- ‘all i care about is my self, and my group of friends’ I basically hate this girl. She is so annoying!!! This is about people changing their lives, and becoming healthier. Although, the money- the game, the greed it gets to people. Maybe we are pre-disposed to this……Tracy is home that is time to CELEBRATE!

Biggest Loser in the Capital November 4, 2009

This week we are in Washington, D.C. the capital of the United States of America. I love Washington D.C. Its a beautiful city.  They will be lobbying congress about obesity in America..talking to members of Congress.
 

For the Pop challenge…The group has to get people to go workout at the Lincoln memorial with Bob and Jillian and wear their color sticker. The the group is forced to run around D.C. for an hour and find people who will support them.

 

Liz has the most people there….so she wins basically get out of jail free card (skip one) card. The music on this show is really getting ridiculous. Too emotional. Its like come on….  The challenge is to run a mile. Liz decides not to use her skip one card…..luckily she makes it into the first 6 people to finish the mile, so they can participate in the next part of the challenge.  Next challenge walking up and down the stairs in D.C. picking up pennies and walking them to the top of stairs and dumping it in a change counter. 3 people will be allowed to move on….the first three to fill up their tubes.Of course Liz uses her (skip one) Rebecca, Daniel, Rudy, Liz are participating in the next challenge which is a balancing challenge…holding a big yoga type ball. Rebecca and Rudy are the last two people….whoever wins this challenge get immunity…for the weigh-in. Rebecca and Rudy are going at it…and Rebecca is moving so quickly up and down on these steps. She is going so fast….She wins. Next day they are going inside the white house…now regardless of your political affliation I think it would be really cool to go inside the white house so much history! Bob and Amanda go walk around…and start talking about ways to not eat sweets… and the product plugs are getting annoying…..

 

So the biggest loser contestants go to the white house…and bob praises the white house for having their own garden which is where they get all their vegetables. The first garden since Roosevelt, which is really surprising to me! The contestants go to kitchen and start making food in the white house. It was very cool. They made beautiful salad all from the garden veggies. This episode we are spending way to much time watching them workout….great now we get to listen to Amanda and how pathetic she is. I can’t stand her…and Bob of course is being supportive and nice…which is annoying.  Basically we get to watch Amanda break some kind of emotional breakdown running a mile….because Bob is there by her side. She has a crush on Bob. I mean who wouldn’t do better with Bob pushing you lose weight…or Jillian? Now we are at the weigh-in at the Lincoln memorial.Rebecca has immunity. Shay is up next hoping she will go below 400 pounds big milestone she weighs in at 393! Tracy is next she loses 3 pounds….good I hope she goes home. Daniel starting at 272 remember when he was 400+ pounds. He loses 11 pounds…. which is good. Alan is next (I love Alan. He is awesome) you can just tell this guy is a good person. THE MUSIC is just so dramatic. He loses 9 pounds  safe from elimination. Danny is next. I like him, another good person. He loses 12 pounds, the men are just throwing up huge numbers. I think its great these people are losing weight, and it seems like really changing their lives. I hope Biggest Loser inspires people…I mean it should at least. Tracey is worried because she ‘doesn’t want to go home’ well guess what Tracey……….no one cares about you.

 

Rudy loses 9 pounds…which is good he is upset its not a double digit…he has lost 110 pounds in 8 weeks…I mean thats a lot of weight!!!! Liz the southern belle is next…she loses 3 pounds…I think Liz could go home and be fine…next up cry baby (amanda) the other idiot in the house….I’m sorry but this girl is ridiculous. I just can’t stand some of the attitudes these girls have. Its like…I understand you went through a lot in your life, and you eat…she loses 7 pounds-she should be losing so much more weight she is young!!!! her and Bob embrace blah blah…no one  cares

 

Liz and Tracey elimination….The votes are in: Tracey clearly goes home. She is excited to see her family…and crys and crys…She has lost so much weight, she looks like a different person. Of course the music….blah blah the triumph of it all. It seems like Jillian and Bob worked on her! Running an 11 min mile. She has lost 85 pounds. Good for her…even though she is annoying. Next week…..Drama. Welcome to Tuesday night Tv.

Picking Up the Slack with Kristin Cavallari November 3, 2009

I got in trouble from a fan for not writing more recently, so I need to try to get back in the swing of things.  Let’s start off with some of The Hills.

 

Justin was a creeper and showed up at K-Cav’s house to make her dinner unannounced after telling her he’d join her at Brody’s bday festivities and never arriving.  That was Strike 1.  Strike 2 nearly occurred last week when he joked that he wasn’t coming to her party in the ‘bu but it turned out he was just playing games.  All of this after he met up with Audrina to tell her how he could “never say anything had ever been as good as Audrina Patridge.  Ever.”  That clandestine rooftop meeting may come back to bite him this week when the ladies get into over him.  I don’t know what Kristin is talking about in saying she won’t put up with his shit the way Audrina did; you already are and it looks like you’ll continue to.  All in the name of good ratings, right?

 

Speaking of good ratings, Kristin isn’t pulling them in.  At all.  Despite her reported $90k per episode paycheck (that’s ok, LC was making $125k) the ratings have slipped considerably.  When asked about it, she said it’s not fair to pin them all on her and that it’s up to everyone to keep it interesting.  Well, it doesn’t quite work that way.  Because they’re seasoned showrunners and you’re brand-new, so you kind of need to prove what you’re getting paid for.  The element that has changed is Kristin taking Lauren’s place, so shouldn’t we assume viewers don’t like the switch?

 

Brody and Jayde are up to their usual nonsense, bickering constantly and getting in public brawls, which inevitably end in Jayde accusing Brody of being insensitive even though she’s doing far more shit-slinging than he is, and Brody storming off and telling anyone within earshot “I’m done.  I’m done.  I’m so over this shit.”  Then be done with it and get back with Kristin — she says you’re vanilla in bed after all.  Oh wait, that wasn’t a compliment?  Ooops!

 

Everyone is crying “Drunk” on Holly and trying to tell her she needs to go to rehab.  Steph would know since she’s already been there and — oh yeah — just got pulled over for her 2nd+ DUI in a couple of years.  Pot?  Kettle?  Black.
