The Biggest Loser

Trae Patton / NBC Patrick House beat out the other contestants to take home the title and prize money.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big fan of “The Biggest Loser.”

A 100lbs blog post form earlier this year states “We recently suggested many problems with the hit show “The Biggest Loser.” It uses dangerous techniques and has unrealistic and unhealthy weight loss goals. It debases and makes a spectacle of its participants.”

Now, there’s a new winner, from Vicksburg MS (subject of yesterday’s posting).

Do you find “The Biggest Loser” inspiring?  Or depressing?  I think the time watching TV would be better spent being active, though; people who watch more TV are more likely to die an early death!
