Extreme Semi-Makoever: Weight Loss Edition

Do you watch Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition on Sunday nights?

I do!  Heck, I'll watch any show that comes on late and makes me cry.  Because I'm a glutton for punishment like that.

Last night's episode was an interesting.  Kind of.  Sort of.  Ok, not really but two things really stuck out to me.

1) The woman undergoing to the "transformation" is still .01 BMI points away from being obese at the end of the show.  I'm sorry but that's just not that impressive considering you've had a personal trainer and a TV crew following you around for a full calendar year.  It's still a great accomplishment!  Just not that episode-worthy if you ask me.  Which I realize no one did.

2) As he does at the end of each episode, Chris Powell gives this woman, a resident of Washington, DC, a $50,000 gift certificate to WalMart.  I used to live in DC.  There is no WalMart there.  That's awkward.
