it's entirely possible that we should cut down on our reality TV...

...because yesterday, my children played "Biggest Loser" for over an hour.

They had challenges: Carry 5 Barbies from the basement up 2 flights of stairs, one at a time--first team done gets immunity;

Temptations: something involving the oatmeal pies I had just purchased;

tearful weigh ins: the 7 year old has plateaued at 54 pounds, in spite of his intense effort; and

One mother of a last chance workout. As I was watching our 11 year old pretending to be Bob, yelling "Come ON!! Last CHANCE!! You can do this!!" to our 35 pound 5 year old daughter as she jumps on and off an overturned toy basket the only thing I could think was...

it could be worse. They could have chosen to play @#!*% 's Kitchen.

My kids LOVE Biggest Loser also. Elle wouldn't go to bed tonight until she saw who got voted off. Too funny that your kids were creating challenges and weighing in. Gotta love the Last Chance workout. I'm just glad they were Bob and not Jillian -- Bob is so much nicer.

I would pay good money to see your kids reenact Hell's Kitchen.

I'd hate hearing: "You bleep bleep my omelet. This is bleep bleep bleep." Not as cute as "Do another situp!" Too funny.

First time posting but I've been a long time reader. Should have taped that one and sent it to the show. Hilarious.

We watch Biggest Loser regularly and love that the two Tongans are LDS this season.

Hilarious! Yes, at least it was Biggest Loser and not Hell's Kitchen. I'm starting to worry that we watch the office too much in front of Lily because she is starting to be able to name the characters. Dwight is her favorite.
