Losing the plot, big time
The Biggest Loser has lost the plot. It used to be a reality show where overweight people lost weight, but now it’s morphed into a cruel gameshow where the rules are constantly being changed in the vain hope of keeping viewers interested. The contestants are nagged and bullied by fellow contestants and trainers, humiliated and all traces of dignity are stripped away. In the latest incident, Lisa thought it would be ‘‘ fun’’ to chain Alex to Graham, the two biggest people in the competition. Alex refused and was punished. If it was so much fun, why didn’t Lisa chain two of the girls together. It’s about time the show went back to basics and stoppedmessing about with the original formula.
