The Biggest Loser

The Biggest Loser

The name of reality TV show “The Biggest Loser” should be understood as “the one who lost the most.” Here we’re talking about weight. And here, the word “loser” is used in a completely different meaning. The fact is that in this reality show participants are trying to “lose” extra weight fighting for a cash prize. The one who loses more weight, gets more money.
