Biggest Winner & Biggest Loser

For those who read last Thursday's post and left a comment you were entered to win a pair of Aspaeris Pivot Shorts and I'm excited to report that the winner was Holly who blogs at The Pioneer Apron!! Please take a minute to head over to her blog. We are relatively new readers of each others blogs but I already find myself looking forward to her new posts.

Comment #1 belongs to Holly!

BIGGEST LOSER

For years I have watched Biggest Loser and followed the journey of people trying to lose weight and get their life back. Season 11 was by far my favorite with the Curlee sisters (Hannah & Olivia) being my favorite team from the start. Season 12 wasn't as enjoyable for me because I didn't feel a strong connection to any of the people and Anna as a trainer wasn't the best fit in my opinion.

Check out their blog myfitspiration.com!

Season 13 has been disastrous in my opinion. With the exception of a few people on the show I don't like watching it at all. The immaturity displayed by several of the contestants (men & women) combined with several people quitting already leaves me disappointed and most of the season is left to go. There are people who genuinely wanted this opportunity and they are sitting at home watching others walk out of the house and head home because they wanted to quit. I do hope that Conda gets sent home soon or I'm going to have to fast forward through every scene where she speaks. One day her children will watch this and I pity them for that. Anyone else ready to just skip to Biggest Loser Season 14?!

  2. I am so frustrated with Conda too! She drives me insane and I cringe when she speaks because I know it's going to be catty :)

  3. I am also ready for Conda to go home. She is so drama driven that it drives me bonkers.

  4. I watched the show one time and I couldnt handle Conda as she kicked some guy off. He might have had a bad attitude but around her I probably would too. She thought she ruled the nest and it made me sick.

  5. I am so glad someone else feels like this too! I can't stand ANY of these people! And I freaking loathe Conda...

  6. Congrats to Holly! Hope she likes her shorts! I love mine :)

  7. It is amazing to me how quickly the contestants seem to forget that this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Forget the money, the real prize is having someone train you, help you with your nutrition and get you into the shape of your life! I know it can't be easy but I can't imagine sitting in that house and contemplating going home and giving it up.

    Oh Conda.... Don't you think she was probably cast because they knew she would say crazy things and get the viewers stirred up? I wonder if maybe it is turning people off to the show. There is so much fighting this season it stresses me out. I don't even like the little rivalry they are playing up between Bob and Dolvett. I LOVE Dolvett. Wonder if Bob might be a little jealous...

  8. Awww thanks for the blog love! And how cool for you to share all the awesome giveaways!

  9. I agree with you a million percent about Biggest Loser. This season the contestants have such a horrible attitude and the vibe is just anything but inspiring.

  10. I've never watched the Biggest Loser, I guess this isn't a good season to start watching!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I haven't really gotten behind any of the contestants for several seasons now but I keep watching.

    I do think they edit to focus on conflicts - last night Conda and Kim and all that pouting... good grief!

    Thanks for highlighting the current giveaways... and congrats to The Pioneer Apron... nice!

  12. I hate this season. It is totally being manipulated for drama! I have never seen so many clips of Bob rolling his eyes. It is so negative in every way. I love Dolvet though...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Holy cow thats a lot of giveawayws!!

    I can't stand this season of Biggest Loser!!! I feel like Adrian is getting ganged up on, solely by Kim and Conda - but everyone else kind of jumps on the bandwagon.

    I also wish Bob and Dolvett would work together a little more instead of being so competitive. Their teams are falling apart, and this weeks weigh ins didn't reflect training. I believe that's why the Aqua team only lost 3 lbs. combined - they were used to higher intensity training, and it tapered off since getting to the Ranch.

    I also laughed my butt off - Daphne has lost more at HOME than the majority of the women who have been at the Ranch this entire time!!

    *sigh* But I'll keep watching.

  14. you are right on about this season of BL. Conda is terrible. i really cannot stand her at all...it makes the entire season difficult to watch because she is so incredibly immature. i am not saying many of the others are much more mature but the way she handles everything is just not much better. DRAMA>

  15. Congrats Holly! I don't usually watch the Biggest Loser except for the Marathon episode - love that one!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I completely agree about this season of Biggest Loser, I am more disappointed every episode for some reason I can't stop watching. All the drama is just ridiculous!
    I loved Olivia and Hanna, they were my favorites too and such an inspiration now!

  19. Thanks for announcing the winner. Congrats Holly. I always like to see who wins.

    ITA about BL. They are maddening.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Amen to all that you said about BL. I too am an avid fan. I miss Jillian beyond words. I don't have anyone that I LOVE on this season either. I like Emily because she just likes to work hard.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I get annoyed at TBL too. I miss Jillian. Why do I keep watching??

    ReplyDelete
  22. I haven't watch TBL in forever but I love the show and really want to get back into it!

    That is a LOT of giveaways! Thanks for rounding them up! Going to go check some out!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've always been a BL fan but there are a lot of seasons lately I've given up on. :-/ Currently behind right now and I think I've only watched two of the episodes so I'm behind. I am so curious now though!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I too am dissapointed in the Biggest Loser this season and have stopped watching all but the weigh-ins. I hope they make some changes next season...or filter the contestants better!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the heads up on all the giveaways! I have never really watched the Biggest Loser so I don't have anything to add on that subject.

    ReplyDelete

  28. Holy crow why am i buying Handful bras? Well because I love them that's why.
    I can't seem to pay attention to TBL this season.

  29. We are in the same boat as you guys - LOVED season 11, couldn't get in to season 12. Except, I have to admit we are loving season 13 - what can I say, I'm a sucker for drama! Although, I agree it sucks when people leave, since there are so many others who would have been used that opportunity.
