Another day, another ad for Season 3 of The Biggest Loser!
Due to popular demand (ie; someone on YouTube asked) today’s video features Steven.
All the videos so far (including ones not yet posted) seem to feature the phrase, “I’m tired of life passing me by.” Either a lot of this season’s fatties genuinely are tired, or these ads have been scripted. Which I’m sure will do wonders for the claims that the entire thing is a setup.Anyway, Steven is another in a long and distinguished line of fathers… wants to be there for his baby, have more energy to play, blah blah blah, you know the drill. I know we have to expect such reasons for being on the show and it’s a way to tug at people’s heartstrings, but I have to wonder if maybe there wasn’t another contestant they could have put on sooner and spaced out the “doting parent” ads out a little more.
I think the lack of Jillian is really going to burn this season – if Steven manages to make it through to the “Makeover Day” stage, she would have attacked that golliwog afro with such glee! Sigh. Hopefully Michelle will be with them for that day this season, but we’ll see.
Most of the rest of his video is filled with the usual claptrap, like it being his “time to step up and do something about my weight.” This ad is really only interesting for the fantastic head of hair Steven has, the rest is just filler.
(Note: I also have Sam and Nicola’s advertisements ready for upload. Anyone have a preference?)
