Storyline

The simple idea of The Biggest Loser, familiar to dieters the world over, is that "whomever loses the most...wins." Losing weight will be difficult, though, as the 12 contestants (six male and six female) will be faced with real-life temptations that their new approved weight-loss skills and resources should help them overcome -- if they want to win, that is.

Proof that Television sucks these days.
10 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is AWFUL. Reality TV is AWFUL. I was hoping Reality TV was just a fad and would pass, but sadly it hasn't. What's worse is crappy shows like this are putting GOOD quality shows, and good actors who deserve the work and fame OUT of work. Terrible Awful Bad Atrocious Why is it on TV Why has it lasted 11/12 seasons... If there were a god getting rid of reality TV, curing world hunger and bringing about world peace would be his or he top 3 goals. The whole concept of the show is stupid and pointless. I don't mean to rip on here but seriously, what has the television industry come to. There ARE good shows out there. So why watch crap like this? Perhaps people need a lobotomy before they will clue in as to how awful reality TV is... or MAYBE, the problem is, they've ALREADY had a lobotomy and reality TV is the only thing that can entertain their dim and dull witted minds...?
