Finally! Fall TV has begun! Real shows! My Tivo is actually going to get to flex it’s muscles and do something more than record JoJo’s Circus.
Tonight I watched the first of many season premiers–The Biggest Loser. This is my reality tv guilty pleasure. Oh, that doesn’t mean I don’t watch reality tv, I do. But I’m a reality snob. I only do Survivor and the Amazing Race. These shows are Emmy nominated, folks.
But I just love The Biggest Loser. The contestants are so motivating! This week, Jerry (on my hero, Bob’s blue team) lost 31 pounds. Thirty-one pounds in one week! ONE WEEK! That is just freaky. How is it possible that our bodies can do that? Seriously, that freaks me out.
The thing that makes this show on the B-list of reality tv is the pretend drama. I mean, the black team? Jillian rides in on a motorcycle? For real? That’s just too much. And do they really have to replay the previous scene when we get back from a commercial? I have TIVO people, I didn’t forget what just happened!
Anyway, to celebrate The Biggest Loser and a new season of fabu tv shows, my friend Kristen and I had a fondue feast. Carrots, apples, red and green peppers, french bread, salad and a yummy havarti/cheddar cheese fondue. Even Bob would have been proud–well, if it wasn’t for the 2 pounds of cheese and the foot long roll we ate.
Cheers to the new fall season! What shows will you be watching?
