Tough People With Good Hearts

Jillian Michaels, Gordon Ramsay, and Tabatha Coffey. When most people think of these gems they think: harsh, mean, and loud. I, cannot disagree with that. For some reason, however, I am comforted by them. There is something about these three that rings true to me. They will scream at people, walk out on them, and maybe even call them stupid. But the fact of the matter is, deep down, they’re trying to help people. Instead of fighting for them, they help people fight for themselves.

Jillian Michaels is one tough cookie. She was my introduction into tough people with good hearts. I’m sure I’ve met others throughout my life that are like her, but on a much smaller scale. When I would watch The Biggest Loser contestants on her team I would say “Ha! Good luck!” as I wolfed down a third brownie. But honestly, I think she had the best team results on the show. She really drove people to do the best the could. Of course she’s made contestants cry and scream, but in the end, I think they were thankful for having her push them that hard. Jillian Michaels famously said, “Unless you puke, faint, or die, keep going!” Soooo my death will be what makes you say “Okay maybe we should take a break.”? Good to know.

“DO YOU WANT TO BE FAT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE???” Umm if it means you’ll stop yelling at me, sure.

Gordon Ramsay knows his stuff when it comes to the kitchen and he has no tolerance when others don’t. He’ll slam down sloppily made dishes and he’ll kick out people who talk back and make excuses. He has a soft side though. I’ve seen it. When I was watching Hotel Hell (apparently he knows a lot about the hotel business as well??) last week, he came across this young man working in a crappy hotel kitchen. He connected with the guy so much that Gordon offered to pay all of his college tuition for him just so he could get the opportunities he needed to do great things. Hey may call people “f-ing donkeys”, but I think he’s a good person.

Do people actually use knife sharpeners?

Tabatha Coffey looks as if she’s about to bite your head off at all times. Ms. Coffey is perhaps the least popular of the bunch. She stars on the show, Tabatha’s Salon Takeover where she helps sinking salons find their place in the business again. Of course there’s a lot of drama involved. She gets in some great fights. I”m recommending some quality television, so take note. At the end of each episode, the salon owners and employees are so thankful that she came and rescued their dying shop. Tabatha makes people feel more confident and in control. Unless they’re stupid and don’t listen to her. In which case she’ll pull a Donald–“You’re Fired!”

And I give you the blonde version of Kris Jenner.

I’m sure in real life I would be extremely turned off by these three toughies. Maybe the reason I like them so much is because I’m safe in my house, watching them through a screen.

The Biggest Loser

There is nothing I love more than watching morbidly obese people exercise and get yelled at. I didn’t realize that I liked this so much until I started watching The Biggest Loser.

What I like about the show even more than watching the contestants battle to lose the most weight, are the coaches, Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels. Jillian isn’t actually on the show anymore. RIP Jillian. I mean, she didn’t technically die, but she’s dead to me now that she quit the show. She was my favorite coach because she would literally scream at the people on her team. She would make them cry. I have purchased all of her workout dvds in hopes that she would help me cry my way into weight loss. But nope. Her wizardry didn’t work on me. I must be too tough. Maybe I should join the army?

I'm going to army, mother.

The other coach, aka the love of my life, is Bob. His workout dvd’s actually made me sore. Hard core workout. But he used respect and kind words. Love conquers all, guys.

This season is really dramatic. There’s this ultimate biatch named Conda (I know) and she bothers me so much because she’s the biggest complainer of all time. And then she’ll act like she’s the best team member. She pisses me off a lot because she’s a loud and angry all the time. I hate that. That’s the exact reason why I’ll never live in New York. Isn’t everyone loud and angry there? She should just be grateful that she’s on the show. Hell, I want to be on the show. But even at my highest weight they wouldn’t accept me. So shut up CONDA.

I’ll just continue to sit on my couch and talk at the TV while stuffing my face with chips. I’ve actually thought about gaining an immense amount of weight just so I could go on the show and transform my body. Such a normal thought process.

This could be my future.
