Tuesday, May 4, 2010: The Biggest Loser

Tuesday, May 4, 2010: <I>The Biggest Loser</I>

It's makeover night! This episode is pretty much why I sit through this product placement show for an entire season. Well, this episode and the finale episode where you see what all these people look like when they've lost the weight of a Vespa. This season in particular I've been desperate for the makeover episode, mostly because I'm sick and tired of Michael's (and to a lesser extent Daris's) enormous hair-don't. Not that I have anything against long hair on guys at all, but Michael with the headbands and the sweating -- it's all just too much. The commercials show hairstylist to the Pussycat Dolls Jonathan Antin, a pair of clippers and Michael saying that his hair needs to go... I'm praying that this bodes well.

But it isn't just the gross hair getting chopped that makes this the second most watchable episode of the season, it's also the teary-eyed reactions of the friends and families when they see how foxy their sisters/brothers/daughters/sons/husbands/wives look now that they've lost some weight and gotten cleaned up by professionals. I'm a sucker for that. I will, however, have my finger on the fast-forward button if I see Bob or Jillian with giant Ziploc bags explaining how they can be used to store their clothing or something ridiculous like that, or how chewing Extra gum will add to their edgy appeal. I'll also be zipping through the performance by Ashanti. Because what does that have to do with weight loss?

The show starts at 8 PM on NBC, and hopefully the new looks will be revealed before 9 so that I can watch Lost in real time. Probably not though.
