I don't know what it is about a looming vote that brings out the worst in people. I am just so over it -- the negative campaigning against the opponents, the nastiness, the veiled threats, the calculated scheming.
If things don't improve soon, I'm not sure I can keep watching The Biggest Loser. I'm beginning to wish it was like American Idol and I got to have a say in who stays and who goes.
If I had my way, Heba would have been gone last week. My "ick" antenna has been up about her since she and her husband Ed (kicked off a few weeks ago) double crossed the Gray Team. Then last week she got all mad because Phil ate some Reese's cups without permission, so she used the power she won in the challenge and banished him to the other team. She's vindictive and arrogant and also, I think, dumb.
Heba can't see that Vicki and Brady (formerly the Brown Team) are playing her. She thinks they've got some great alliance built up and that they're watching her back. Yeah, watching it so they know just where to put in the knife when it suits them.
These two are total schemers. I'm pretty sure they fabricated a story about Phil tonight just to make Heba hate him more. If Heba makes me feel "ick," then Vicki and Brady make me feel "ewwww," as in "I just stepped in something slimy."
I suppose the good news is that I don't have to wait until November 4 to cast my vote about this show. All I have to do is reach for the remote.
