Bill Germanakos Wins ‘The Biggest Loser’ 4, But It Was No Surprise

Filed under: Television — @ December 19, 2007

Bill Germanakos is the fourth man in a row to win “The Biggest Loser”

When the hit NBC reality television series “The Biggest Loser” debuted in 2004, it was roundly ridiculed and scorned by critics who didn’t understand the allure of a show dedicated specifically to helping obese people fight the battle of the bulge. That didn’t stop people from tuning in by the millions week after week cheering on these people seeking to go from flab to fab and it has continued to grow in popularity every year since. There’s really nothing else like it on TV and, unlike most reality programs these days, nobody has been able to replicate the success of the original. I LOVE THIS SHOW!

However, there is a bit of underground controversy happening now after Bill Germanakos became the fourth straight male winner of the title “The Biggest Loser” on Tuesday night winning the $250,000 grand prize. Men have dominated over the years with their weight loss success and it may be an inevitability that will always be the case. So you can’t help but wonder the obvious question:

Is it possible a woman could ever win “The Biggest Loser?”

Not only has a girl never been “The Biggest Loser,” but we haven’t seen one win the at-home competition either! Can a woman EVER break through the glass ceiling that has been dominated by the guys since this show began? From Ryan Benson, Matt Hoover, Eric Chopin, and now Bill Germanakos, men seem to have a firm lock on the ability to become “The Biggest Loser.” And this is merely confirming a long-held belief many people (especially women!) hold about weight loss–men can lose it faster than women can!
