Can you say drama?
Don't get me wrong, I like the show but it is hard to see the inspiration when there is so much arguing. Yes, the show is essentially a game being played for money- but the bigger picture is these people are playing for their life. With each new season the contestants get bigger and bigger, and the drama grows at the same time.
For those of you who don't follow the show, one of the contestants has had immunity (can't be sent home) and over two weeks has lost only ONE pound. The contestant claims that she did not throw the weigh in, but in comparison to people who are typically losing anywhere from 4 to 15 pounds in one week -it makes you wonder.
But then there are contestant who get it, who know they have been given an unbelievable opportunity- that even a slightly overweight person would love. A chance to focus solely on the goal of becoming a stronger, healthier person minus all the distractions of everyday life. A chance to save themselves. Wouldn't it be nice to get up in the morning knowing your purpose is to focus on eating right and following the orders of your two personal trainers? Sometimes I wonder if some of the contestants actually realize what has been given to them.
Alright, I'll stop rambling...going to go see how it works out.
Oh wait, this just in:
The girl who lost one pound over two weeks- just lost eleven pounds in one week.
Odd...don't you think?
