The Biggest Loser: Now For Minors!

September 11, 2012

Forgive me if someone else has already written about this, but what the fuck? Jillian Michaels, she of The Biggest Loser fame, is set to target kids in the show's upcoming season, starting in January. The contestants will be between the ages of 13 and 17 and while Jillian and the producers are away of the controversy of doing such a show, it's 'right where she wants to be'. UGH. Jezebel has an *excellent* article on the whole thing, including many links to more info on how being fat doesn't mean you're unhealthy, obesity myths, and even addresses the multitude of reasons why kids might be fat, other than the usual scapegoats of soda and junk food. Well done, Jezebel!
