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.



Biggest Loser Makeover Week November 20, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — thedogwoodtree @ 8:51 am

It’s makeover week!  This is one of my favorite ‘episodes’ and they do it every season.
Everyone looks great- except…Amanda. She is just gross. She has only lost 48 pounds, which compared to everyone else on the show is pathetic.  They’ve all lost significant amounts of weight.  Liz has lost more than her. Rudy has lost over 100 pounds! Same with Danny!  The contestants each give inspirational speeches to a crowd of random people. I wonder how they find these groups. No one’s speech was that great…Rudy disclosed that he lost his sister to cancer…that was sad. They all struggle with food because of something traumatic in their lives.

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.

Biggest Loser is really starting to just irritate me!
The show starts off last night with a challenge.Now, Alison gives everyone an option to participate in the challenge or not….what is the challenge? A enormous wheel that contains plates covered like a room service dinner-underneath these covers……checks for $1000, pieces of cake and cupcakes that can be 1,000 calories or 1 golden ticket which will give that person the power to CHOOSE TEAMS- Yes, we are splitting up black vs. blue…Jillian vs Bob. The first couple people spin the wheel, well and surprise surprise they get the cake, cupcakes and who ends up with the CHOOSE TEAMS golden ticket….TRACY! Now…..I’m pissed, PISSED about this. I mean is this show rigged? It can’t be! I trust NBC! I hope they are providing HONEST TV. A girl can dream.

Okay, last night’s Biggest Loser. I love this show. It is one of the most inspirational shows on TV. I mean come on these people are close to death, and this show gets them to ‘realize’ that they need to change their lives or they are going to be ….well….not to be dark but no longer here. Although, I am a little irritated about the product plugs some times its just too much, and the music I mean it just makes you think someone is going to grow wings and fly!
