This really burns my biscuits! Another annoying trend I have been seeing recently is shows where super skinny/in shape folks just pig out and part of their role is to make like they consume copious amounts of junk food on a regular basis all the while maintaining the hottest body ever. 1. Isn’t part of this countries problem people not eating right, which is why most of us are obese? 2. Why are you trying to trick people? You know in real life off of your shows you wouldn’t touch half of the things you claim to eat on a regular basis. 3. Why is it important to show “stars” eating crap food? This reminds me of the Carl’s Junior ad’s that Paris Hilton did. I am not sure if having her in the commercial half naked soaped up on a car holding the burger was supposed to entice men with ther 11 year old boy body or entice people to go to buy a burger but none of it really makes sense to me.
I have mentioned before my own struggles with weight loss and I know plenty of others in the same boat. If I eat one french fry on contact I gain 5 pounds that will take 3 weeks to burn off no matter how often I work out. It’s almost like a slap in the face to watch our fave shoes and watch these super in shape folks fake like they eat crap all of the time or that they can drink like that on a regular basis without gaining pounds. What they should preface in scripted shows that all of the characters are on special diets (if they eat at all), work out 7 days a week with personal trainer and their in home gym, that they really never touch fast food and their doctors have prescribed special medicine to help them immediately lose any weight gained from pretending to eat all that junk on the show.
I am still unsure why it is so important to show skinnies eating so much crap but maintaining chiseled bodies unless it is just one more way for the “famous” to showhow much more amazing than the average person they are. Or are these shows trying to bring themselves down to the level of the average person by assuming we all pig out on crap food and we will be able to relate better if we see the our fave characters doing it too. Will we feel soo much closer to them by our ever present bond over junk food?
Every time I see a reality show everyone is at a super faboo event drinking by the bottle or in their house drinking or anywhere except the gym drinking. Is the average person also an alcoholic or are these shows saying no fun can be had without booze (isn’t it understood that most reality shows are geared towards teens and folks in their 20′s). Scripted shows not only include booze but drugs often as well (I’m not opposed to either but I’m 30 and have learned my lessons about boozin and druggin too much). Reality shows would show more drugs, I bet, if they could without a cast member being arrested. Most just abuse prescriptions anyway and have no problem mentioning that. I feel like we are gearing up to see younger generations be immediate drunks/druggies because all they see are people not eating, drinking and popping pills at every turn.
Why not be the role models most stars pretend to aspire to be and be honest about their eating and exercise regimes. We all know you have to be the weight of a toddler with the body of a pre-pubescent boy to become a star anyway so why not just say it? Admit you are just as insecure as the rest of the world and you unfortunately fell victim to the pressures of being famous? The rest of the world is always trying to live under those standards why not just pan to starving children in third world countries and say “I am aspiring to be a starving African child but with Louboutins, Louis Vuitton bag and tons of sparkle jewelry that weighs more than I do” that’s all most of us ladies really want right?
