Over the weekend I ended up reading quite a few articles about him that criticized him for riding the fame train and living off his Olympic Gold Medal. While in one sense I get the complaints, but on the other hand he worked very hard to get that gold medal and shouldn't he get as much out of it as possible? Many folks criticizing him were also from his church and complain that he doesn't really live by the tenets of the church. Many also said that since the recession his motivational speaking appearances have dried up as well as memberships in his gym. This being a big reason he went on Biggest Loser. That explains a lot about why he left as he saw a golden opportunity for himself. Do I blame him? Not really. Its the way he did it. He also comes across very hypocritical about how hard he worked, his work ethic vs others on the ranch that he voted off and that they were one big happy family if he was basically using the show to get into shape to help himself, his marriage and his business. Comes across very calculated and underhanded.
