APRIL 26TH EPISODE UNFAIR


I love the Biggest Loser show and do not miss one week. To my dismay, yesterday's challenge which aired on April 26, 2011, had the contestants pulling a car, a replay of the episode which Tara won. I have nothing against Tara and commend her on starting a foundation to help others. I do not agree that it was appropriate to bring in a former contestant, mind you, to compete in a challenge with current contestants, and the noncontestant was Tara. The former Olympic champion Ruehn (spelling?) was one of the contestants on the show. It really meant a lot for him to win that competition and get a chance at having his likeness on the Wheaties' Box, an opportunity that he did not have when he was in the Olympics. He should have been able to compete against the other current contestants, fair and square, let the chips fall as they may, without any of this nonsense bringing Tara in to compete equally for the prizes. Tara should have been excluded from the competition. She knew the ins and outs of that challenge and she was not a competitor. It was called a photofinish and the tape was reviewed. Tara was declared the winner and Ruehn came in 1st from the contestant competitors yet won nothing. Tara was an outsider and she was still allowed to collect the $5,000 pot for her charity and also get her picture on the box of Wheaties. Ruehn also was the first contestant to ever walk off the Biggest Loser Show, and he did so last night after this challenge, described above, was aired. He said it was for personal reasons and was within 15 pounds of his goal weight, a real success story. I do not blame him for leaving, even if he does not divulge that the truth might have something to do with the unfairness of this challenge. He is too much of a gentleman to even mention it and did not want to seem like a sore loser. As an observer and lover of the Biggest Loser, I was very dissapointed in the way this was handled and feel that Ruehn was treated unfairly. Since when are outsiders brought in to compete against current competitors, equally for the winning prize(s, and the true winner from the group of current contestants is snubbed? I know how shabby I would have felt in his position. At least you could have had 2 prizes for the Wheaties picture or something else appropriate to acknowledge the contestants who participated in this most-difficult challenge and their true winner. This was not about Tara! Her time in the spotlight was on her show. Shame on you Biggest Loser. More power to you Ruehn and I wish you success in all of your lifetime.

I agree, I thought That Tara was there to support the current contestants not to rob the Wheaties Photo and the effort of the current contestants. I agree with the above comment pasted below.
I'm still a fan of TBL but keep it fair

Tara absolutely should not have been on the show to win a prize. I think it was the reason why Gardener quit. It was embarrassing for a professional wrestler and an olympic gold medalist to get beat by her. I never really liked him on the show but i did feel sorry for him when he lost. I also felt awful for the the people on the show who deserved their chance to win a prize and Tara was there to claim it, as she has had years of experience and training since her show!! It was a horrible idea by the producers, if you guys(producers) need some good ideas with the show, please ask and stop coming up with horrible ideas. This episode ranked right up there with ARMY WEEK!!! (another horrible idea by the producers of this show!!)
