Hey guys..just want to voice my opinion on the Biggest looser bunch...yes they have done well but it doesnt sit right with me how they have "water loaded" This is cheating and unfair to those who dont..yes its a game but surely its against the rules.Did the americans do that?Why have I never thought of it before?I just dont get how it isnt cheating???

Yes Harry and Walley both did the water trick to get in but unfortunate for Big Wal he accidently drank one bottle too many.
They also have different sized bodies and stomachs so even drinking their normal water is unfair to the others.

I wish they had a Biggest Loser team where everyone of them were losing weight from the beggining to the end (with nobody getting voted off) and on the last day they get weighed in on the % scale to see who is the winner of the $$$$
That way we can follow and emulate our favorite Loser through to the end of the show.

Yeh, I reckon its cheating too but as you said it is a game and a big weight loss the following week will give them more of a chance to stay in the game. Once one person did it, everyone else followed, they were like sheep. I think the trainers actually suggest it too them. I think the problem with the Aussie series was that it was taken too far. I'm pretty sure they did do it in the American series but not to the extreme the aussies have done it.

I was glad to hear Ajay say that anyone putting on weight from now on will instantly be below the yellow line - that soon changed their minds! I think next series there will be a rule about putting on weight eg. you will be automatically put up for elimination if you put on more than 'x' - they'd have to allow a little leeway for fluid retention etc but not too much.
