Should be more popular than it is now.
25 April 2009 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Bob and Jillian is the reason the show is so great, but Jillian is more watchable, period.

DO understand that I am not overweight, but I am concern with a few of my friends who are. That being said I do think that the show is interesting even for those who are NOT overweight or obese or just damn skinny, healthy, or even an athlete.

The only thing that is sometimes missing is the trainer's point of view in challenges or in the activities that the contestants is engaged in. There should be more of Jillian, Bob and Kim, or a new trainer, because the workout with all the drama and physical endurance is damn worth watching.

At the end of the day, they are all winners, or dare I say, The biggest loser.
