Reality TV in the States is something that makes me shake my head. Really?
A prime example is the Biggest Loser, don’t get me wrong, I think the idea behind the Biggest Loser is valid, there is a significant number of Americans (and to be fair people in other countries) that are obese, not overweight, but obese. The thing that gets me is that right now it’s the 9th season of the Biggest Loser in the States and the contestants keep on getting bigger and bigger and bigger and a growing number of contestants each year talk about how they are such big fans of the show and that they’ve watched practically every show, etc. and yet they still have horrible eating and exercising habits.
On the other end of the spectrum, there’s American Idol…I can’t believe that that is the most watched TV show in America, why? Mr. Tony talked so much about Posh Spice on last night’s episode that I found it online and wow. She is a lollipop person with 0% body fat who as Mr. Tony said looks like she hasn’t digested a meal in fifteen years. And the unbelievable push to be “famous” and rich was evident by the reasons that some people gave for being at the auditions. American Idol the karaoke game as we learned is not a good gauge about whether you have any singing talent at all or not.
