The 39th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards were just announced, and as is usual in most losing your virginity in high school scenarios, the Razzies continue to nail the best of the worst! This year was a real equal opportunity caller out-er of the bad shit on the silver (nickel plated?) screen, and no hair piece, Dame, politician’s wife or puppet was excluded from the Razzie spotlight of the worst for 2018.
Anyone with even the slightest familiarity of NBC’s The Biggest Loser knows that it’s a pretty weird show. Like, I’m almost sure that most doctors probably wouldn’t recommend throwing all your dignity out the window and struggle-crawling through the mud like a chunky lizard in the name of weight loss. But for 17 seasons, lots of people did just that, and worse. I mean, Subway sandwiches without cheese OR cream-based sauces?!
Well, no one is going to have to suffer through any more mud crawls or promotional low-calorie sandwiches; The Biggest Loser has most likely been cancelled.
Former “Biggest Loser” Contestant Kai Hibbard Says The Show Is A Never-Ending Emotionally-Abusive Nightmare
Because I’m an emotional wreck who cries at dog food commercials, I can’t watch inspirational makeover porn like The Biggest Loser or Extreme Makeover: Home Edition without weeping like a Kardashian at a Free Botox Giveaway. And according to former Biggest Loser contestant Kai Hibbard, I’m not the only one who’s crying; the contestants are weeping too. The only thing is, I’m crying melodramatic tears of happiness at home, whereas the contestants are crying hot calorie-free tears of constant terror.
Kai, who was the Season 3 runner-up by losing 118lbs, admits to the New York Post that she’s “embarrassed” to have ever appeared on The Biggest Loser, adding that “The whole fucking show is a fat-shaming disaster.” Damn Kai, tell us how you REALLY feel. Kai’s complimentary Subway Gold Card must have been recently cancelled or something, because she goes on to drag The Biggest Loser harder than an eliminated contestant drags their ass to the nearest all-you-can-eat buffet 2 seconds after they leave the ranch.
