has anyone ever heard of the show "the biggest loser"? im watching it now and i think ive lost all faith in humanity. no, no...like all of it.
for those who havent seen it, its a 'game show' where overweight people are put into two groups (the 'red' and 'blue' teams) and given a rigorous diet and exercise program to help them lose weight. Sounds like a good deed, right?
At the end of each show, the contestants are made to weigh in to see how much they lost over the week. the weight changes are added up to make up a team 'score' and to determine how much the weight the team lost all in all. from this, they determine 'the biggest loser', the team that lost the most, and give them a gourmet health meal while the 'biggest winner'(?) are forced to choose a team member to vote off. this is usually the person who looses the least weight and is hence holding the team back.
this is sick...beyond
sick. people around the world are getting televised entertainment watching fat people struggle to get thin. its like racing crippled people up stairs without wheelchairs and replacing the loser's wheels with octagonal ones for a week to punish him for being 'more paralyzed than everyone else'
this is entertainment? reality tv has gone too far. and whats worse is that its actually entertaining
. i would be lying to you if i said i didnt watch the whole episode to see what would happen next, would aaron lose enough weight for the blue team or would his fatness make him a failure? find out after the commercial break! and coming up next, martha stewart will show us how to cook babies for breakfast!
this world is coming to an end...
