I'm not a huge fan of "The Biggest Loser," which has always struck me as a really scary show - a show that seems to teach people to be angry and hate their issues away. TBL is nothing more than a circus sideshow. I don't enjoy its exploitive nature and I don't enjoy how it's made a few people suggest to me "omigod, you should totally go on that show." My god, if you knew me at all you'd know I do not belong on that show.
You know what I enjoy? ABC's home makeover series. I do. I'm a sap. I love television that makes me cry and root for the human spirit. Making over homes and minds and bodies.
So I had no problem posting this to my blog. :)
