Here’s a secret: I love the Biggest Loser. Was an avid fan. But this season, I stopped dead in my loyal tracks last week. Why? Believe it or not, it came down to one contestant. The litmus test for me. Rudy Pauls. I can’t stand to watch another minute of his sanctimonious lectures or his blatant duplicity. There have been plenty of heels on this show throughout the seasons, but something about his level of callous disregard for honor and keeping his word, mixed with his insufferable lectures on goal setting and trust, is beyond intolerable. Rather than watch the train wreck any longer, I must vote with the remote.
So here’s one fan, shutting off the show. He may or may not win. It doesn’t matter. I can’t stomach him a minute longer, and I pity the people still left with him that have to interact and deal.
