    I know it's been on for a few seasons, but this is the first season I've actually TIVO"d it. Allison Sweeney seems snobbish, couldn't they have found a warmer person??

    But my question is, do most of the contestants keep the weight off after they've left (or got booted) off the show? Do they have a reunion at the end??

    It's about 50/50...

    That show is crap.

    They do things like water cycling where you take in a bunch of water. Like 2 gallons a day for 3 days then you stop and in the next 48 hours you piss it all out plus some of the before water weight ie losing pounds of original body weight right before the weigh in.

    And its no wonder the people lose the weight. They workout 6 days a week with millionaire trainers, have food taken care of by millionaire nutritionists and the show likes to make it .out like its a weigh in every week but its a month at least between weigh ins.

    I can't stand that show.

    And jillian micheals is a mean mug looking bitch. Prob a dike too.

    Biggest loser? I thought that this was about our White House usurper.:(

    You can complain about how nice the people on the show have it, but those who get booted off early often times come back with even bigger results then the people who stayed on the show.

    I haven't watch it in about 4 years, but I know from the first few seasons they'd have a few from the original batch who never even made the cut show up, and they had greater weight loss then anyone on the show.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I'm working on a ground breaking new weight loss program. Look for an IPO soon! DON'T MISS THIS ONE.
    The program is safe and proven. It is effective and easy. Send me your credit card information and I'll rush you the program. Send $9.99 and I'll overnight it to your front door.

    No expensive equipment
    No membership fee
    No expensive proprietary diet

    Simply eat less and exercise more.

    The show is a joke.

    I lost 100 lb in 10 months by eating right and by moving..... you know, exercise.....

    The winner of the first season of Biggest Loser gained it all back. He's done a lot of interviews about his experience.

    I stopped watching it a few years ago for the same reasons others have listed here. It was so unrealistic. Losing 10+ pounds a week was ridiculous. Waterloading to throw weigh-ins was a major turn off for me too. IT wasn't about losing weight, it was about doing whatever it takes (even if it's unhealthy) to win a million dollars or create manufactured drama.

    Google Kai from Season 3. She's been the most outspoken about the dangers that show puts its contestants under. I remember her at the final weigh in. She was as loopy as hell. Come to find out, she stopped eating and drinking days before the weigh in. She said she was so unhealthy at that season finale that she was urinating blood. :eek:

    The first episode actually put me off...especially when two people passed out. These people were obese and they were making them work out like triathletes...I thought it was dangerous and irresponsible. I thought one is supposed to build up to a 3 hour workout...lol
