Biggest Loser 2012 – Week 11

The Biggest Loser Australia – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch10 http://thebiggestloser.com.au/ They say love conquers all, but although love played a big part in ending hostilities in the Pacific in 1945, it was really the H-bomb that was the defining factor. Still, love is pretty powerful. And it’s going to need to be if Hamish wants to have any chance of coming back to camp Biggest Loser and being reunited with Michelle. As week 11 kicked...

Biggest Loser 2012 – Week 10

The Biggest Loser Australia – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch10 http://thebiggestloser.com.au/ And so this is Christmas. Well, it’s not actually Christmas, but for the contestants, it must have surely felt like Christmas when they were made over, dressed up and paraded for the entire world to see. Then again maybe not, but for the eliminated contestants it must have certainly felt like Christmas when they were given the opportunity to re-enter...

Biggest Loser 2012 – Week 9

The Biggest Loser Australia – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch10 http://thebiggestloser.com.au/ The last time we left the contestants at camp Biggest Loser, Lydia and Margie were battling it out on the treadmills, racing over 5km. They were there by virtue of the fact that they had eliminated all the other contestants by beating them on the bikes and cross-trainers, and were the only two left. Down to the wire it went, neck and neck. Well of...

Biggest Loser 2012 – Week 8

The Biggest Loser Australia – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch10 http://thebiggestloser.com.au/ Remember Aesop’s fables? I don’t, but someone mentioned them to me the other day, so I googled it. It turns out Aesop was a story teller whose fables involved tales of morality. There was the Boy Who Cried Wolf, about a boy who lied about seeing a wolf so many times that when he actually did see a wolf, no one believed him. There was the Ant and...

Biggest Loser 2012 – Week 7

The Biggest Loser Australia – Mon-Fri 7pm, Ch10 http://thebiggestloser.com.au/ They say that all good things come to those that wait so presumably that means that a bloke who locks himself in his house, never goes out and sits around doing nothing but waiting will eventually win the lotto, receive a proposal of marriage from seven of the eight most recent Playboy bunnies and be awarded an Order of Australia Medal for his...

Biggest Loser 2012 – Week 6

Last week’s Biggest Loser provided us with a whiff of impropriety and a scent of scandal, which combined kind of smells like burnt cheese. Someone had done somebody wrong and would face penal sanctions, and please note ‘penal’ doesn’t mean what some of you are thinking it means. “Who was it?”, ”What did they do?”, ”What will happen to them?” we all wondered aloud on trains and in crowded lifts, drawing stern glares from strangers and...

Biggest Loser 2012 – Week 5

We picked up where we left off with the combined girls team and the combined boys battling each other and near death racing up a geographical feature alternately referred to as ‘Hell Hill’, ‘Murder Mountain’ or ‘The Dune of Doom. Later on, Margie would have her own near death battle with the ‘Dunny of Doom’. But before that, the girls had the lead and Ryan was attempting to make it up the hill for the sole purpose of coming back down...
