I have NO idea how I just came across this video but I think it is hilarious! It is obviously old but I still found it very interesting. I also feel enough time has passed since Season 7 of the Biggest Loser that it would be OK to touch on this topic. Take a look at the video and then we can discuss.
So the news story references the “alleged” break in. Well I can tell you that I was there and I have the pictures to prove it. I can also tell you that Filipe and Sione were not the only contestants indulging on the stolen goods. I along with at least two other contestants were right there with them. Before I go any further, I would like to say that SOME of what Jillian had said was right on. We only film 4-5 days out of a 7 day week. When stuff like this happens there is no way to show it because the cameras are not rolling. Looking back I can also imagine why Jillian was so upset. She was dedicating so much of herself to the contestants to try to help us change our lives. Something like this is viewed as a major setback. However not everything mentioned in the story is 100% correct and to be honest…I would hardly call it a “scandal”.
I have always said time and time again that it is easy to resist temptation when the camera is in your face and you know millions of people are watching. Take the cameras away and all the sudden it’s not so easy. It becomes a little more like real life. I guess you can say that this was one Biggest Loser temptation we could not resist.
