I am also glad that Lisa is back and able to take over her monitoring job. It was too much for me but thank you for the kind thoughts anyway.

I am listening to the Don Imus show while sitting at my computer. I am struck by the way he and his associates steadfastly avoid any vulgarity and profanity, while still delivering an interesting, humorous, fast paced and, at times, approaching risqué dialog. This is a great example that Bob and Jillian should look to in acceptable behavior.

Lisa, so good to have you back on the job. I look forward to your through, aggressive and comprehensive analysis of tonight's show. You go girl!!! ;-)

Hi again, Lisa. It was like really great talking with you yesterday. I really hope I helped to cheer you up a little bit. Family problems are always the worst, I know that for sure. I am so happy that you are back and can take responsibility for monitoring the show back from Warren. He did a pretty good job for you both weeks but there's nothing like you, and I'd say we all agree about that. You are the best and do a really fantastic job. Keep smiling, honey, and call me anytime, day or night. Love, Sarah

The main reason I don't/can't try out is that I HAVE to work. I am not in a financial situation where I can take off that much time. I do not have vacation or personal days.

I am so delighted, pleased and feel so validated that virtually all of you agree that vulgarity, profanity, offensive dialog and innuendo, and even shouting are ABSOLUTELY NOT NECESSARY to get the job done, and are especially offensive on prime time FAMILY ORIENTED shows. The wonderful analogy of the way the military operates is so right on. We need to all continue to pull together in order to nip this abusive language and behavior right in the proverbial bud, and right now. It can be no other way.

And so I reaffirm my dedicated efforts to that end and will continue to monitor the show very carefully and report to the Biggest Loser show producers an also to you, my dear SP friends. Now that I am back home from my family crisis, I will take up paper and pencil again tomorrow night and make sure that all incidents of offensive language and behavior are documented by date and time, and I will e-mail the report directly to the show producers as I have so many times in the past.

Progress is often slow, but I can see that we are definitely making progress. I like Tom's point that if we can cause the show to suffer financially through loss of advertising dollars, then there is no doubt that the producers will change, and quickly. Their jobs and salaries are closely tied to the success of the show. I will not let you down, my good friends, so don't you worry about that one little bit. Lisa

I am with you Stutterbox!

I too will not let it stop me from watching the show; just like the other things I mentioned haven't stopped me from going to the grocery store (although I have left lines after a glance at thongs and boxers emoticon emoticon emoticon ).

But I can't helped but wonder will enough ever be enough.

I taught for 20 years and kids would "straighten up" when I came on the scene. But the last 8-10 years I taught (4-8 years) the kids would just keep on doing whatever they were doing as if I was the invisible woman.

Some of it is home life, some of it is peer pressure, but most of it is the example we set for them as to what is acceptable behavior.

My grandmother use to say the only thing wrong with kids today is parents today.

I am glad that she did not live long enough (passed in 97 at the age of 98) the state of the world today! emoticon

It's all in my mind;and "...minds are like parachutes,they only work when they are open!" Zen quote ingrained in me by my Father as a teenager that has served me often & well. Thanks Dad! ;)

I have read many of the comments here. Some are quite interesting! I do love watching the show to see how everyone is progressing, but I also HATE the filthy language!

This entire SparkPeople site is based on encouraging each other and giving support to others to reach their goals. This program teaches us to care about ourselves enough to want to improve our health and our lives. I do not understand how Jillian or Bob think that vulgar language and insults will motivate their people or help them to have better self respect. I know it certainly does NOT help me to respect them very much. As personal trainers and public figures they have the power to influence millions of people, I just wish they would do it in a more positive way. emoticon

1-2-2019 I am now 52 years of age and am trying once again to take better care of myself. I hope to be more active in my lifestyle and on Spark People. This is a GREAT learning and tracking site to help people live healthier lives.

I am only speaking for myself (of course) but I watch BL to watch the progress of the folks. I'm fairly sure training and trying to get on the right path in an extremely short period of time is trying on Jillian & Bob as well as the people. The trainers end up getting judged as well as the teams. Everyone is doing their best (at least I think so). Some folks just "spill" without realizing it. Maybe that's Jillian's "potty" mouth reason. I don't know. I do know it isn't going to make me stop watching - these folks are given the chance of a life time. A chance I would love to have.

Completely agree, Jazzy. The military has learned to push you without any profanity or vulgarity whatever. It is completely unnecessary and just gets in the way because of the emotional baggage it carries.

I, for one, am disgusted with the acceptable climate in our society for low down and dirty.

The way our young people tend to dress; purposely exposing their undergarments - so often.

The way women tend to use profanity as frequently as men - all too often.

The way men swear in the presence of women and children - like using punctuation.

Call me old fashion but what happened to, "discretion is the better part of valor", being the gentleman and ladylike?

Everyone wants to be hard.

No more softness. No more gentile.

But then I loath feminine hygiene and ed products being advertised during family time so often that my 9 year granddaughter asks me questions my daughter asked me as a teenager!

The Drills.
The orders for excellence encouraged they did not berate!
You can do it; come on one more, I know you've got it in you! Don't you quit on me.

Push. Push. PUSH!!!

Never profanity. Never you maggot. Never abusive.

I am not sure why producers think vulgarity increases ratings. Sometimes it interferes with the show with all the bleeping. I was watching old seasons of i hell's kitchen and sometimes there is so much vularity and bleeping you don't even know what is going on with all the bleeping.

You are so right about the producers' motives. If they think something will build the show and ratings, you can be sure they will include it at some point. The "F-bomb" vulgarity we heard from Jillian last season is an example. Although Lisa's efforts probably were not sufficient alone, I'm going to bet that they heard from a number of other sources too that the F-word made viewers uncomfortable. That is why it was removed from the script, and probably replaced with what we are seeing and hearing now. The only way you can effect change in broadcast (or print) media is to 'hit 'em where it hurts,' right in the pocketbook (i.e. show ratings).

It's a little much but I am sure that it's egged on by the producers. I own a couple of the BL workout dvd's. Bob and Jillian are like normal and not excessive like they are on tv.

Thank you Chuck. I was starting to feel like a pariah here with everyone appearing to hate me because I do not think Jillian and Bob are perfect in all respects.

Never-the-less, I am a fan of the show and see many positive aspects for the participants and viewers.

The vulgarity and profanity are not among them.

Hi Chuck,

You have made some really excellent points, and I agree with you wholeheartedly. A few contributors to this topic see Lisa as a fuddy-duddy or a malcontent who is on a witch hunt. I believe their enthusiasm is misguided and they are 'blaming the messenger and not the message.' I see Lisa as a good friend of the show who is determined to try to do something to effect the change that we all seem to desire. From my experience in the media, however, I will say that I don't think she is going to have much of an impact on the suits, but hey -- you never know. She just might be the spark that lights the fire.

Go Jets!

Tom

You are all wet, Mike. To answer Rachel's question, the purpose of my monitoring the show is so that I have FACTS (date, time, situation) to use in my e-mails to the Biggest Loser show producers because this is a prime time, public airwaves television show. Initially I was only doing that but then several of you urged me to also share my reports and comments with everyone here. I thought that was a brilliant idea and was actually quite embarrassed that I had not thought of it myself first.

At any rate, Mike and Rachel, that is the point of my efforts. As I have already stated, if the Biggest Loser Show was on cable, I would probably feel a bit differently. However, it is a prime time, FAMILY show and we have thousands of young, impressionable youth watching. I believe it is incumbent upon both Jillian and Bob to be outstanding role models and set the example for these younger viewers.

I hope this clears up the matter for you both.

I understand that people like drama and controversy, but I still don't understand why you watch something you have so many bad things to say about the people in it... I've also asked before what anyone hopes to accomplish by tracking the profanity. What's the point of it?

Can you imagine how boring these boards would be if all we ever posted was "wonderful", " I love Jillian", etc.

That is most of what you guys post anyway.

I am a fan of Jillian and Bob for what they accomplish.

But I can see flaws in both of them and I write about these flaws.

Those who think they are perfect in all respects can continue to write that too.

I agree - why watch only to come on here to complain? To label Jillian a quack or nuts is making a professional opinion without the proper certification, which is the same as she is accused of doing.

While everyone has a choice to complain to the producers, a weekly recap isn't really necessary since we all watch the same show and are perfectly aware of what is said. If I don't like a show, I don't watch it, let alone take time to monitor it.

I realize this is a topic to track the profanity and vulgarity of Biggest Loser, namely that of Jillian. However, I thought this was also the Biggest Loser Fans team?

I love Jillian. And I know I can't be the only one that thinks (or vocally comments) that she is telling these people exactly what they need to hear exactly how they need to hear it.

I'm sure somebody has told a lot of the contestants, "I'm concerned for you. Please start to take care of yourself." But that didn't get them on a treadmill, it didn't get them to drag Jillian across the gym on a rope. It got them to 400lbs.

I know it took getting angry at myself a few times for me to find the motivation to finally whip my butt into shape. Whoever said "Please and thank you" won't get these people to change was right!

Also, it may be my personal opinion, but I think Jillian knows who needs to be yelled at. I don't think she uses a blanket style to motivate everyone. I'm not saying she coddles some people-- that's what would be truly out of character-- but she knows who can take "Every time I see you on the ground, I think DEAD FATHER."

And Julio looked damn good at the finale.

If her language offends you, fine. But she gets results! You have to be broken down in order to rebuild. I would LOVE to have the chance to train with her for even just an hour.

Lisa:

Glad you are back. The responsibility of keeping track of Jill's filthy mouth was too much for me.

Plus, while it is nice of you to say, nobody cares about what nasty mouth says.

I won't do this again, you need another volunteer next time, if there is one.

The Jill and Bob apologists think they can do no wrong, even when she went after the lazy woman last week , there were people apoligising for her.

That woman should of quit from verbal abuse. I have had some experiences with people when they get cornered like that. They can lash out at you.

Jill and Bob do a lot of good there is no question about that. But when they try to get into the head shrinking business, they are out of their depth.

Jill's mom is a shrink of sorts but that does not qualify Jill to go nuts on a person like that.

My opinion is the psychological abuse is much worse than the swearing, vulgairty and verbal abuse.

Hi everyone,

Well, I'm back. I arrived at my front door at 3:17 p.m. (EST) and I've got to share with you that I am exhausted, and spent. The plane was 47 minutes late leaving the gate and another 23 minutes late for taking off. I can't believe how these airports have so much trouble keeping on time, or even fairly close to it. It's ridiculous.

Anyway, family emergencies are so like really hard to deal with sometimes because of the emotions and pent up angers, I guess. That's not usually the case with the exact same situation dealing with friends or even a stranger. People can like really get on edge and big time irritable, and most of the time you've really got to watch what you say too, or even what you don't say because sometimes silence can be seen as uncaring that can cause an offense to be taken.

Anyway, I'm back and like soooooo happy to be home in my nice snuggly warm house. Now I've got to get back on my diet though. When I get under pressure I eat. I guess that is my way of handling pressure with comfort food. It's been the like story of my life. I did a weigh in (not for SparkPeople though) a few minutes ago and, I'm going to tell you the truth, that in not quite two weeks I've gained almost 10 pounds, I'm totally embarrassed to say. But I've got my head on straight now and know what I have to do. Good thing I'm not a contestant on the BL show (LOL) or I would be letting my team down royally.

Speaking of the Biggest Loser Show, I only was able to catch some of the last two episodes so I can't really comment to you on the language issue or any bad innuendo or inappropriate behavior. I took a quick look back on this topic Discussion Forum and note that Warren filled in for me both weeks really good to monitor the show and report to you. I really appreciate that, Warren. I really do and I owe you one (or maybe two or three). You did a great job and I know that everyone appreciated your efforts. Now I am going to take over again and will handle next week's show and going forward, unless I have to go back to Minnesota, but I don't think so. But at least I now know that I have a willing and competent back-up person on the Team, if I do have to go back or if I have to be away for any other reasons.

Thanks again Warren. You are the best! And thanks also to everyone of you out there for your thoughts and prayers, and also to some of you that actually sent me SparkMail. I haven't read them all yet but your love really means a lot and I could like feel the warm vibes all the way out there in Minnesota while I was gone. You guys are truly the very best, and true friends. I am so very fortunate to have found this SparkPeople group and Team.

Lisa

It is one thing to help a person understand why they are fat but entirely another to scream in their faces until they crack. That does not aid understanding.

Bob did tell Jillian to go play mean. She told Bob she didn't want to because this girl has a huge chip on her shoulder. Bob said that has never stopped you before. Jillian expressed to Bob that she was concerned because this girl would walk out and when she did it would be for good. Thats when Bob said go play mean. I don't think what Jillian did was that wrong of her. That is what she is there for. How can a person lose weight and keep it off if they don't deal with all the reasons why they put the weight on in the first place. That is Jillians point. I love Jillian and Bob both. I think they are great and as they saying goes until you walk a mile in their shoes....

Bob and Jill need a rest. Jillian was just nuts last night and I think they averted a disaster if someone quit because of verbal abuse.

Bethdiscount- i guess i have to agree jillian went too far last night when someone is upset the worst thing you can do is keep pushing it. It was bas enough to hound her in the gym but then to go chasing after her when she walked out. I glad bob was able to calm her down.
Did you guys not see the part where Bob TOLD Jillian to go be mean??? She warned him that she would walk out and Bob said GO DO IT!
Then he gets the credit for fixing things!

Ability is what you're capable of doing....motivation determines what you do.....attitude determines how well you do it.

About 8:40, we had a promo for Walgreen's ice pack. This was the first promo that I thought brought real information to the show.

Melissa made a nasty comment about how much Michael would eat "no wonder he weight 550 pounds." Then she admitted that she and her fat husband normally ate 3500 cal in restaurants.

Miggy said this had been a hell of a week. Miggymom said it was because she did not know how to express herself. This caused crying, of course. Lost 1/1000 pound from tears.

Then some creep from SC Johnson came on and tried to convince us that Windex is green. Lotsaluck with that one, pal.

The red team guy said "Holy crap" about the ribbon contest.

this contest was so stupid I could not take it anymore.

Somebody said OMG and then they went into Spanish or some other language I could not understand.

Lance said screw it, you're not helping.

Then Miggy got to "beat the crap" out of a bag. Bob emphasized the crap part.

This is where I have to quit. Enough already.

Right off the bat there was a series of "pissed" from green team member and then multiples from Jill.
'Hell of a job', said Jill to greeny then "she had to pee." greeny was dogging it.

Then Jill told the offening green woman a story about why dogs do not cry. I missed part of it because all this talk about peeing.....

Jill asked Natalia why, why, why.... but she did not know the answer. She asked if she was happy and why not? She harassed the poor woman until she had a mental breakdown. Jillian is cruel.

Had to take a break to check election results in MA.

Greenie said she wanted to go home and I don't blame her. Jillian was harassing her for no point except to break her. Crying won't help you lose weight and Jill is a quack psychologist. Migdalia had a cussing session behind the door and it sounded like F you Jillian.

The Bob said what the hell happened. Miggy said she came here to friggin learn how to eat. Bob had to come in to save the situation because Miggy was going home and with good reason in my opinion.

Miggy's mom had a good point about changing personality. Bob said I will help but he may have been lyin; he was trying to save Jillian who went too far.

So far I have to conclude that Jillian has a nasty mouth and she is on the edge of nuts.

Thank you for the very kind words but now I am feeling some pressure to watch every minute of the show.

Usually I tune out some of it because it is so boring.

Glad Lisa is OK and hope that niece problem is resolved satisfactorily.

Oh that is truly wonderful, Warren. Thank you so very much, and I know that Lisa would be thanking you too if she was here. I am also quite confident that all of the readers and the posters to this Topic thank you too. You are doing us all a great and important service. I look forward to reading your report regarding the show tomorrow night.

Actually there is nothing wrong with Lisa, thanks for asking. She is fine but is like responding to a very tragic family emergency involving her niece. It is a very private and delicate matter and I would not want to go any further than that, even by Spark Mail. I certainly would not post anything publicly. If Lisa wants to share with you or anyone about it when she returns and gets active again on the message board, that is her business. I know you understand.
