    Just wanted to point it out...
    Guess they didn't want to create another Tracey.....Ah....I liked the evil that Tracey created.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that Tracey mess was planned.

    I'd be shocked if it was planned. I'm also quite sure NBC's legal team raised heck and made sure nothing like that would happen again.

    Yep, that's what I suspect as well.

    Still the show it set up for drama. Something is bound to happen when you have some seriously obese people who do not exercise and you ask them to do an intense physical challenge. I am surprised that it took this long.

    Just curious if y'all watched it. Confessions of a Reality Show Loser on Discovery Health 9pm EST Wed Jan 6, 2010.

    I did and found it very interesting. IMO it seems Eric has a lot more issues than weight loss can resolve.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

I know that they have to find motivation within, but even one more week might give them something else to help them LONG term. I don't know, it just seems so cold to only give them a week. I know it's a game, but somehow I just think this would make me feel better...and, afterall, it's all about me!
    I totally agree. I think it's shameful of NBC to do this to these hopeful people who are very much in need.

    I watched it too. It was basically a documentary about Erik and how he gained his weight back and what he is doing to try to get the weight off again. It showed him watching the "Where are they now" episode of the Biggest Loser with his family and he was mad that they said he gained all of his weight back because he says he didn't. He said the BL doesn't prepare you for life after the show, etc.
    Wake up and be awesome
