... to The Biggest Loser Season 13 remaining shows.
But that was just the beginning of it for me. I watch the show to be inspired and to feel some connection with the contestants that are on the ranch. I enjoy rooting for them and laughing with my Twitter friends on Tuesday nights about the foibles and the remarkable things they're accomplishing. I watch the 'last workout' segments intensely to see if I can find new moves to incorporate into my hours in the gym.
I *loved* last season's contestants. Even the older woman who cried continually (Bonnie) and I felt,unfairly, blamed Ana for her own downfalls and giving up, was annoying to me but not unlikable. I routed for both teams, for young and old and loved the season and was inspired by it. I was, honestly, disappointed tremendously when John won over some of the other finalists but was more upset when he didn't give Dolvett the credit he had due him as the winning trainer. Vinny, Ramon, Courtney, Jennifer, Jessica, Sunny, Becki, Antone, Joe and so many more made last season SO enjoyable and inspirational to watch from the 1st week to the finale.
And so many other things from the past weeks... I just don't feel uplifted by the show this season. Quite the opposite, I feel dragged down when I turn off the television. When someone begins wearing an ascot to personally promote their own ventures (non-profit or not), I think that is just weird. An ascot with a t-shirt... and the producers said 'okay' to that?
Let me know if you feel the same way or if you think it is editing, forced conflict, etc. that has made this season of The Biggest Loser seem so different by leaving a comment. Thanks! ; )
Here's to our health, friends!
