Un­fit for pur­pose

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch -

I think The Big­gest Loser should be re­named The Big­gest Bul­lies. Hu­mil­i­at­ing obese con­tes­tants who have al­ready en­dured bul­ly­ing and­mock­ing by their peers by call­ing them ‘‘ an em­bar­rass­ment to your­self’’’ is of­fen­sive. Those per­sonal train­ers on the show of­fend me and should have their ac­cred­i­ta­tion sus­pended. Get­ting obese peo­ple to per­form mini marathons and 10km runs is ob­scene and bor­ders on abuse .
