There's a Biggest Loser competition at my job this fall. They have this twice already this year, but a colleague deduced that whomever decided to do the competition again started it to coincide with the new season of the show.
There's been a flurry of conversation on twitter about people excited about watching the new season. On the other side, there are a few of us who are not so excited and don't really care for the show. Count me as one of those persons.
I don't find it inspiration.
I think it is unrealistic.
I believe the methods used can't be done every day.
I wonder about the message that is being sent to those that are put of the show early in the season.
Perhaps this is the case now (it wasn't when I did watch**) but are they producers addressing the emotional issues the people are having? That is important, I think.
I think the people are being exploited*** emotionally and physically.
Overall, I don't find the show inspirational. I don't think it sends a positive message. At all.
**I watched a portion of the 2nd second season, I think. I began watching mid-season and sporadically watched the remaining episodes.
***That is the case, likely, with much of reality TV and the reason I don't watch any of those types of shows.
