Season 3 Runner-Up
Kai Hibbard

Hailed as a show where people seek to heal their mental, physical, and emontional states, The Biggest Loser is percieved by many as the most pure of reality shows.

But especially in light of last night’s winner Rachel’s extreme weight loss, many are questioning the safety of the contestants as they progress through the seasons.

Could the process, in reality, be quite unhealthy?

Season 3 runner-up, Kai Hibbard was kind enough to grant an exclusive interview with me to share some shocking details for anyone who ever has questioned what life is like beyond the cameras.  Listen in, and experience it from a very different perspective:

    The biggest losers are the people who think this is good TV. Creating new “reality TV” celebrities via emotional and physical abuse. To quote John Wayne, “Life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid.

      Thanks for the perspective. And the quote, lol. I used to think Biggest Loser was so pure and wholesome. And whether or not it’s as dangerous as Kai says, I believe her perspective provides lots of room for thought.
