The Biggest Loser Season 12 Episode 12 Review

Tonight’s episode of The Biggest Loser kicked off with hometown reunions. As always, it is heartwarming to see the shock and jubilation on everyone’s face as the contestants debut their new looks.

Of all the reunions, Vinny’s was the most touching and at times, most difficult to watch. Shortly after their return home, each player was given a video to watch with their loved ones that chronicled their journeybefore and after The Biggest Loser ranch. Included in that video was footage of Vinny opening up about his abusive childhood and his resentment towards his mother for not intervening when his stepfather beat him. It did not feel appropriate to watch it as a viewer but I suppose that is what reality television is all about. The family appeared to be in a better place so hopefully that uncomfortable moment memorialized on television will be the start of a new beginning for Vinny and his family.
