This is not to say shows you never watched because you never liked them. These are shows that you once enjoyed but now do not watch because you actively dislike them.
The Biggest Loser.
Let’s start off that Allison Sweeney is horrible - even by soap actor standards. The in-show commercials are ridiculous and they can’t make up their mind what they are about. Is it a show about losing weight and cutting people who can’t perform or is it a contest and there is a game to play to make sure you win. Now I can handle the crying and emotional turmoil but I cannot stand how people constantly say, “I need to be here!” as justification for someone else leaving. Look - you’re all blue whale size (TBL has long since gotten away from normal obese Americans and now has people classified as continents) and so you ALL need to be there but they cry like they’re 500lbs about to drop dead and the other guy is looking to lose 5 maybe 10 lbs.
Yawn. When was the last time they showed the horrible auditions? How far can someone advance if they are at all different? It seems like the judges goal is to have a slate of people who sing great and sound like everyone else in Hollywood trying to make it big. But what really pissed me off was one year there was a kid maybe 16, overweight and social awkward. I want to say his name was Jace. His group in Vegas kicked him out (for no musical reason other than he didn’t fit their image of cool kids) well after midnight. Luckily Geddy Lee lookalike (who was the last person cut that year) had a group that took him in. And Jace (ITIHN) almost made it to the top 20. I was so pissed that the producers would allow that and let a situation where a singer wouldn’t have a group happen although they did change the rules slightly the next year.
The Amazing Race
At first it started by changing rules to form bunching points so no team could really get a lead so what’s the point of you know - racing? Now they allow shared answers and teams to follow other teams so I honestly don’t see how strategy is any use over luck. Teams can (and have) won based on doing nothing on their own so why should I watch and “ability-based” contest that is 95% luck and alliances and 5% actual ability? Don’t we have Survivor for that?
