Girls Write Out
Monday, October 01, 2007
I don't often rail about stuff, but I told you last week I was hooked on The Biggest Loser. I've rooted for the Blue Team all along but they voted off JERRY on Tuesday! What is UP with that? He's the biggest loser the first two weeks in history. AND their team captain. They wouldn't even have been on the team if he hadn't chosen them.

Which brought up the biggest reason I'm upset. I hate ingratitude. They obviously had no sense of loyalty or gratitude at all for what he's done for them. He kept them from having to send someone home for three weeks. The first time at the table, they ditched him. What's wrong with the world these days? Is loyalty and gratitude dead? Is everyone out for themselves anymore. I can't stand to even play Monopoly so I'd be a very poor competitor if someone else had to be hurt by something I did. I just don't get it. Anyone have an idea why they would do this?

Jerry was a conceited jerk who thought they owed him something. They don't, and when he started trying to get everyone to vote a certain way, I was glad to see him go.

He looked good doing it at home, and he had too many controlling tendencies. Goodbye!

Jerry wasn't conceited! He was a great guy! Always encouraging and uplifting everyone. I'm glad he was able to do it at home but he didn't deserve to be voted off. If you read the comments from everyone else, you're the only person who has said that. You must not have watched every show.

LOL. Well, Kristin! You crack me up!

I liked Jerry. Very much. Thought he was a cutie. As much as I like Kae, I thought they should get rid of her just because she doesn't have much weight to lose. Also, sometimes they vote people off strictly for strategy and Jerry could have been a big threat.

But hey Jerry showed them. Look how fit he looked at home. Woohoo! He's a hot old guy. LOL.

I will say I was very nervous watching Jerry work out. I kept worrying he'd have a heart attack or something.

Colleen, keep rooting for the Blue team, if for no other reason, trainer Bob is such a doll.

I do like Bob, Sabrina. But I'm rooting for the Black Team now. I can't stand the rest of them on the Blue Team with the way they turned on Jerry. Bunch of ingrates!

Neil should have been voted off. For a big guy he's not losing very well so I have to wonder if he's not working as hard as the others.

This is way I don't watch reality T.V.
They always vote off the Strongest, The Smartest, Nicest and the one who works the hardest.
You start to love someone on the show and next thing you know their voted off for no reason but being a good person.
Sometimes I wonder if it's all fixed to keep people watching?

that's why I don't like reality TV. Nice guys seem to always finish last. It's the sneakiest, slyest, most deceitful ones that seem to get the million bucks at the end.

It's all strategy. Kick off the strongest and then you might have a chance. Keep the strongest and they out shine you. Motivation? money.
That's my guess. ONly, Kristin has me hooked on the Bachelor!! She made that post last season and now I had to check it out again this season and I'm so appalled I have to keep watching. Isn't that sick? (No Kristin, I'm not really blaming you - it's my own pathetic nature!)

At 4:36 PM, Blogger Colleen Coble said...

I'm begininng to question my sanity in watching the show too, girls! LOL

At 4:37 PM, Blogger Colleen Coble said...

Oh J, I was SO appalled last year when I saw that guy who was teaching SS yet sleeping with the different girls. What a sleezeball!

At 6:21 PM, Blogger Lynette Sowell said...

ugh. don't get me started. I haven't tuned in. While I love the principle of the show and could probably be a contestant myself (!), I'm tired of seeing people get cutthroat and eliminate the strongest, while the dirty players (aka Big Brother 8) remain. I'm competitive, but playing dirty gets my blood boiling every time... LOL.

At 3:25 AM, Blogger Kristin said...

Jaime isn't the Bachelor awful this season? Gosh, the girls must have a combined IQ of -- well, I don't want to say, but I can't even stomach it this year.

I'm with you . . . I'm now rooting for the black team as well. I was not pleased with Jerry being voted off. I saw it as disloyalty as well.

As for TBL . . . I love that show. You'd think it would motivate me to get with it and lose the weight I need to lose. I have gotten the TBL workout videos -- a start, huh?
