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.

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.

Sorry girls and boys for not writing last week…….
A recap – No one went home last week, the big ‘loving’ family won the challenge so there was NO elimination….Fabulous right?
Well…this week…Crazy purple team has about lost their minds. Well Tracy has lost her mind. Now…This is lady is a complete…and I repeat complete LOONEY TOON. I feel bad for her partner, the loveable Coach Moe. Who needs to stop being such a ‘coach’ and speak his mind. Tracy decided to give up the trainers for a week, for a 2 pound advantage at the weigh-in. Jillian gave Tracy a piece of her mind, which I lovedBiggest Loser goes on for WAY too long sometimes. All the challenges, and non-sense. It isn’t Biggest Loser without tempting these people with SWEETS…..So first temptation of the season. Which…Tracy the lose canon once again decides that she will go ahead and eat cupcakes so that she has the possibilty of controlling who’s weight counts for the week before they get on the scale……Well, Tracy and Antoine are the only two who eat…Tracy eats 4 cupcakes 100 calories each…Well, the entire group is shocked considering Tracys rash behavior earlier in the week….We go back to the gym…and who is waiting for us..Jillian and my beloved Bob. Well, of course the group goes through the explaination of what happened…Jillian says something like “who would be so stupid to eat those for control of the weigh-in?” Well…Psycho TRACY! Jillian rips into Tracy and basically her and Bob openly don’t like this woman…..

The green team wins the challenge of carrying up all the weight to the top of this ramp type thing. They win immunity. I like green team, they are honest and strong. Now- i usually start disliking certain teams…Well this is a different season because I like everyone. The only person I don’t like is Tracy and that is because she is taking down coach MOE with her crazy ass! Sadly, Red Team goes home. Orange Team was also on the chopping block although considering Shay who started Biggest Loser at 467 pounds is on the orange team with vertan Dan (who was last seasons Biggest Person Ever) has now been topped by Shay. Red Team basically says “we have support systems and we aren’t as big as you” eventhough they are BIG. So Red Team scarafices….

Tune in for next week as Tracy might get what’s coming to her…..VOTED OFF.

Doozy of a Thursday September 21, 2009

For whatever reason, I’m just now getting around to writing about last Thursday’s premiere night of both The Office and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.  Actually, I know why it took me this long.  I am hopelessly addicted to Friday Night Lights and I had a marathon session for the past 2 days, causing me to go into a football coma, unable to watch anything else until the first 2 seasons were complete and while I await the 3rd season discs in the mail.  That said, let’s focus on the other good stuff.




Is Tonight a Good Night for TV? You Betcha! September 17, 2009

And I’m sure you’re wondering why.  As I’ve recently learned, I happen to maybe offend people right here on this blog.  Some would call me crass, some a downright biotch, but hopefully most find me to be a witty delight.  If not, I suspect you’re on the wrong blog and need to be moving on over to Watch with Kristin’s far more conservative use of vocabulary. 


On that vein, we’ve got some viewing pleasure coming atcha this evening that could offend almost anyone: it’s the return of It’s Almost Sunny in Philadelphia and tonight, the Gang Exploits the Mortgage Crisis.  Let me just tell you that if you do not watch this show, you are missing out on something special.  It may be zany to say the least, but FX is bringing us a show that I believe to be a true marker of our generation, much like some feel South Park is.  It’s not PC in the slightest, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.  In fact, they keep that sucker out of rotation and off the air until 11pm so either record it or plan to stay up late (or late for me at least). 


Additionally, we have always-amazing The Office on NBC and Real Housewives of Atlanta to boot and Kim is using the ol’ smoker’s singing voice for us.  As for The Office, I don’t actually know what to expect but what I do know is that we left last season with a prego Pam and Michael back in his rightful spot at Dunder Mifflin. 


Party?  Hearty.
