Biggest Loser

| | Comments (5)

Before last night's premiere of NBC's new reality show about weight loss, titled "The Biggest Loser," (how original of them!) while they were in the home stretch of plugging it, Boy looked up from the book he was reading just in time to see and hear the last bit of the promo, delivered by that movie trailer voice-over guy with the raspy voice, saying something like this "... to find out just who will be the biggest loserrrrr."

Boy, looking puzzled and a bit amused at the same time: "How on earth are they going to determine who the biggest loser will be?"

Me: "...?"

Then it hit me! Having caught only the tail end of the promo and after not really paying attention, he thought that they meant biggest loser as in shape-your-thumb-and-forefinger-into-an-"L"-and-slap-it-against-your-forehead kind of loser.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Can you imagine what the premise for that show will be?

Imagine movie trailer voice-over guy (who moonlights for NBC on the side) dramatically saying: "Viewerrrrrrs, forrrr five rrrriveting weeks you'll decide who the biggest loserrrr will be: the 30-yearrrr old unemployed guy who still mooches of his own motherrrr orrr the serrrrial womaniser who steals costume jewels frrrom vulnerrrable old ladies?"

Fox, don't you go stealing this idea now, you hear? I know it sounds awfully tempting, but trust me, this won't allow you to stoop even lower. I think you've already outdone yourself with shows like "Married by America" and "Man vs. Beast."

I bet they would develop that show in a heartbeat. I bet they have people googling the web all the time to steal show ideas. :)

I kind of thought that they already had a show about the biggest loser with that show about Mi Big Fat Boss. Caught the promos and that seems to be just what your boyfriend is talking about.

crazy. Well, I think they are all losers to go on tv and be expoited and embarrased. No amount of money is worth that.

"Hey weren't you the fat bastard that was on the biggest looser show 10 years ago?"

"Yeah."

"Hey you're still fat!"

"Yeah, I know."

"Guess you really were a looser..."

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
