Critic Reviews for The Biggest Loser Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

Just another form of the same merciless ridicule? The Biggest Loser, which at its new hour-and-a-half length is more desperately in need of slimming than its subjects, takes that hypocrisy to a new level.

Top Critic

The gimmick is more cruel than clever, and it undermines the rest of the show.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

The debut, which ran 90 minutes, went by rather quickly, but the constant food commercials and the subliminal Subway signs on the show, made me run to the fridge so often, I think I put on five pounds by the time it was over.

Jan 29, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It's one of those ideas that goes terribly wrong before it begins.

Jan 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Though The Biggest Loser is technically a dogged competition, it's also feel-good fare with a message that everyone can benefit from.
