Reviews of The Biggest Loser are polarized, subjective and mixed; mostly outweighing cons by fitness experts and specialists. The most highlighted pro of the show is the promising visible results that contestants are really losing fats! On the other side, fitness experts expressed their deep opposition to its methods of losing weight that are considered exploitive, and do not follow the standards of weight loss. The show only gives the impression of pure entertainment without addressing problems on personal health and other issues. Contestants differ in body composition and capacity; one can bear up a life-threatening task, but others may not.
