After the first five minutes of this show, I had gotten some free weights and was doing bicep curls. Does anyone else find the need to work out after watching the show? All the fat facts before the commercials (for example, that 75% of Americans will be overweight by the year 2015) made it seem lazy to watch the show without doing reps of some sort.
What is Bill doing there, though? One of the other contestants said that she didn't understand what he was doing there because he wasn't even fat anymore, and that she was getting sick of him winning everything, and I have to agree. Maybe he's supposed to be like a pace car in a race, giving the others a really tough competitor to encourage them. It's a little boring though, because looking at the challenges it's pretty obvious who's going to win--especially last night's challenge to see who could hold onto a pole suspended over a swimming pool for the longest.
After thee swimming pool challenge, everybody decided to go for a swim. Nicole, not seeing a giant sign on the floor that warned against diving into shallow water, dove into the pool and knocked out her two front teeth. I guess she went up to Julie and asked if she looked okay and Julie told her that she didn't because she was missing teeth. A lot of people wrote on the website that Julie's this awful malicious person--one comment even went as far to accuse Julie of making fun of people with disabilities (having no front teeth is not a disability, for the record). Why does everybody hate Julie? I thought it was funny, and I thought she captured the speech of someone with no front teeth quite well. As a toothless woman, I am not offended.
