    I dont think enough people watch it to merit a separate thread each week so unless someone does start new, how about we just keep everything to this thread except previews for the upcoming weeks.

    Da brat started off well. Was it planned do you think? talk about not respecting his 'authoritay'.

    Screech appears to have a problem with it as well. Unfortunately i saw marsha on a talk show recently so that spoiled things for me in that area. But oh well.

    Should be a fun year.

    One note, do you think their scale is true? The reason i ask, and i know everyone is different shapes, but i know someone that is 5 1 and 150 and she looks nothing like (i think it was tiff), who was about the same weight (i may have forgotten who). this person has a belly but skinny legs and arms so I didnt believe that there could be such a difference. amazing.

    The one thing I noticed several times you could see the weight display and it was never what they told the person.

    I actually from the little I saw last night side with Screech. To me he didn't have necessarily a problem with authority but more the way they were trying to deliver their message. Based on the first episode I could see him doing fine on say the Biggest Loser since the trainer doesn't come across with the same attitude. I also laughed out loud when they described pizza as an addiction.

    I already hate Dustin Diamond. He's so incredibly full of himself.

    And not in an "I love to hate" kind of way.

    First off, the scale doesn't just jump immediately to the final weight of the person. It is just like 99.99999 % of scales and it takes a second to hone in on the final weight....big deal.

    Second...are you laughing because you disagree that food is not or cannot be an addiction? :eek:

    Actually every digital scale I have been on, once it shows the number that is the final number. It doesn't gradually increase or jump to random numbers as it hones in on the weigh. Multiple times you see the display saying the weight just before he says what they weigh and the number wasn't moving and it never matched what they say. Maybe it is just horrible editing.

    Yes but then again based on the new rules and definition of addiction I am addicted to everything. Food can definitely be a coping mechanism but to me that isn't an addiction.

    All addictions are in some sense coping mechanisms. If you eat to reduce the pain or loneliness you feel and need to release to survive, that makes food a very real addiction. But with a critical difference. if you're alcoholic or a drug user, you can stop using them all together. Food addicts have to learn to moderate their intake. That's much harder. Imagine if you told the alcoholic he had to learn to take one and only one drink per day and then see how successful they would be at quitting.

    I guess the camera does make you look heavier because I thought Marsha, ooops I mean Maureen and Tiffany looked heavier than 150. Maureen looked like a frumpy mom, and Tiffany, well, she's really morphed into some kind of shape. I thought both looked more like they weighed 170-180.

    Dustin, uuggghhh, gross. His bulbous nose really bothers me along with his big mouth. He can dish it out, but he can't stand it when someone calls him "Screech." If I were on this show I would call him Screech all the time. :D

    Totally agree. I told my wife......"Honey, I don't get it. These chicks look HUGE and only weighed 150 and you look normal and weigh 135? What gives?" :confused: She said some people hide it better

    With Maureen I think it was that outfit, particularly the skirt, that made her look so large.

    Dustin/Screech - what a jerkwad that guy is. He is WAY too full of himself ever since his porno tape. I have a feeling that some will make a point of calling him Screech because if his attitude.

    DaBrat - I only knew her from Surreal Life and that is how she always there. I like her, but she is definitely an 'in your face' type of person.

    As far as the scale, I think it is just shown that way on the screen for the sake of drama...

    I think the black model from a couple seasons back, Toquisha? Something like that, she carried it better than these chicks and she was about 180.

    I just saw a preview for the rest of the season, and I gotta say, I think I'm really going to like Ross. Not watching The Tonight Show, I don't really know much about him, but he always kind of seemed a bit annoying. But he seems, in the previews, to have a lot of heart.

    The Da Brat thing was contrived and so is most of what Screech is doing. He's all about getting camera time. I thought it was funny when Ross the intern told him to shutup because "this is my time". :D

    Still, every year in May is when I start doing extra weights at the Gym, and start getting hard core about healthy good food again. Wouldn't be Summer without a good run of Celeb Fit Club! This season looks to be as ridiculous (read entertaining) as every other. It's nice to have someone to suffer with. :D

    I liked when the lady psych doc told Dustin to put his hand up, then told him to put it over his mouth. BTW, I really liked the other lady psych doc from previous years. Maybe this one will work out because she is quick witted and I like that.

    I never knew Dustin Diamond was such a tool, but he proved it in one episode.

    I believe people can be addicted to food; I know someone who has been in OA for years, and she has to work the program, just like AA, for her life to be on track.

    As for the weights, people carry weight differently, and if you have poor muscle mass, you're going to look heavier than someone who has a more muscular frame. I always look like I weigh less than I do, only because I have a muscles and a large frame (not big bones, a large frame). It looks like both Tiffany and Maureen have small frames, which means that they don't carry weight well at all.

    I'm looking forward to this season, even though I never heard of some of these people, and don't care about most of the others.

    The only thing I know about Da Brat was what I saw on the Surreal Life, and she was pretty cool when she encountered what's-his-name peeing in the corner. :D

    I like Ross The Intern, and I'm glad to see more of him, since I don't watch Leno.

    Never heard of Cletus and that other rapper, but they both seem okay.

    I don't know if I like the men vs. women thing. Men will almost always win those types of challenges, because they have more muscle mass to begin with, and muscle burns at a higher metabolic rate than anything else. It's inherently unfair. But the point of the show isn't about fairness, I guess.

    I love Ross the intern. He makes me happy.
    I have been seeing these people on talk shows for a couple of months now so no big surprise how much some of them lose. I'll still watch. I thought Cletus T Judd's (sp?) story was very moving. Most men wouldn't talk about an eating disorder. I don't really know much about him but I'm rooting for him. I ike seeing Kim Locke. She is beautiful and talented.

    I hope Screech ;) gets kicked off.

    I don't watch Leno regularly but if you put in your wish list Ross the intern it will usually record it. His bits with Jesse James are a beautiful thing.

    Ross the intern was pretty amusing. I'm gonna like him. I don't understand the men vs. women thing. On the Biggest Loser they did it by percentage. Shouldn't it be that way? Otherwise men will be losing more weight than the chicks.

    That's a good point. I always hated Cletus T. Judd, but my opinion of him went up a bit after watching the show. That had to be hard to admit.

    I'm always happy to see Ross. He'll be my favorite to watch. Of course, seeing him on the red carpet recently, I already saw him thinner.

    I like Cletus and have lots of his cds, but didn't know what he looked like or was like in person.

    Da Brat was definitely like this on Surreal Life, but also has a softer side. She really went overboard with Harvey, and I totally agreed with the psych's assessment of her acting like a bratty teen.

    Dustin must go! He has completely the wrong attitude and is just proving himself to be a piece of crap. Why is he even participating if he isn't willing to do things their way?! Go away Dustin, and let someone who will appreciate the experience participate!

    This is one of my favorite shows watch it every week while on the tredmill at the gym. I am really disapointed with this seasons cast. I was hoping for 1 really big guy like phil who I could root for. Screech is just hamming it up trying to gain exposer and attention by being a jerk. I will strill continue to watch but so far am very disapointed.

    Yeah, I have to admit, I miss having one really big person on the show that makes me feel not so bad about losing weight.
