Peggy kills the healthiest man in town!
30 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peggy wins Jim Jupiter who proclaims himself as the healthiest man in Chicago and is an exercise show host for a week. When he comes, Peggy's resistance is almost unbearable. She refuses to comply to his ideas such as eating healthy, quitting smoking, and exercising. Peggy turns the situation around and Jim is under her negative influences. When he returns to his show, he is smoking on the couch. Somehow, Peggy has ruined the healthiest man in Chicago. When it gets worse, she feels responsible and decides to get the family healthy. But Al knows what killed Jim was his healthy lifestyle and not the other way around. He could not live in Chicago by eating right and exercising, according to Al.
