“Thintervention” recap 1.1: No cheeseburgers, vedgies


As the contestants huffed and puffed their way to the end, Jeana played favorites and gathered the villains of the show to have a nice catty dinner served by her personal chef.

Over dinner, we hear a virtual Ferris wheel of smack talking being piled up like blueberry pancakes smothered in hate butter. Nikki thinks Joe wants to lose weight simply to sleep with better looking girls. She also quips that he must not have money because that’s all it takes to bag a babe. Joe thinks Jeana is trying to date rape him and he’s too tired from his workout to fend her off. Oh Joe, you S.O.B.

Finally, the group goes to therapy, seeing as they all seem to need it desperately. The biggest reveal we find is that Kim, who had barely gotten any camera time, is a breast and uterine cancer survivor. She and Shay dealt with their stress, worry and fear by running to the ice cream carton. Now they’re here together to take back their lives and teach us more words for our no-no parts.

Weigh-in results: Everyone lost at least four pounds, with Joe losing the most at 10.

All-in-all, it was a great week for our eight new friends. I thought the show was pretty good. I really enjoy the fact that the contestants aren’t too morbidly obese for me to not relate to. Also, they aren’t competing against each other, only against themselves so we get to see all of them through until the end. Jackie seems to be showing a softer side and I think I kind of like her with the longer hair.

If you didn’t catch the first episode, you can watch it for free on Hulu. Did it give you a vedgie?
