Flashback Friday-The Biggest Loser (2004-2016)

It’s not exactly a secret that obesity is becoming one of the biggest health problems in America.

Therefore, it’s not much a stretch to understand that the topic looked like a goldmine for reality television.

The Biggest Loser was on the air from 2004-2016. The format of the program was like any other competition reality show. All of the contestants at the beginning of each season were seriously overweight and/or obese. The goal of the show was not just to win the cash prize, but to lose the the most weight.

While on the outside, the premise of the show has semi-good intentions. It is a reality show, but it could, in the right light, inspire viewers to live a healthier lifestyle. However, given the accusations of extreme conditions and weight loss of the contestants, The Biggest Loser does not look that great.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
