Michelle Obama Is Going to Whip Some 'Biggest Losers' Into Shape (VIDEO)

michelle obamaThis is sure to bring out some haters, and some terrible puns about who the "biggest loser" really is, but I think it's a cool idea that Michelle Obama is going to guest star on NBC's Biggest Loser. The White House episode will be a two-parter -- the contestants will go to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue where their (spoiler alert) family members will surprise them. In part two the following week, Mrs. O shows up to teach them about how adult eating habits affect children. Her appearance is obviously pegged to her Let's Move! initiative and the Loser-ettes are going to be treated to the show's first ever White House workout.

If I were them, I'd be a little nervous. I mean, have you seen Michelle's arms? There are going to be a lot of push-ups in the Loser-ettes' future.

Mrs. O has been criticised for her campaign to get Americans healthy -- the White House super bowl party menu was a heart attack waiting to happen, and Michelle's been spotted eating thousands of calories worth of burger and fries at Shake Shack -- but the whole point of her initiative is to get people active, and to enjoy foods in moderation.

I'm all for this Let's Move thing. Let's do this. Let's move. Let's eat right. Let's play outside. Whatever. I'm game. I think it's great Mrs. O is going to be on the Biggest Loser, which, let's be honest, could use a ratings bump. She'll breathe new life into the series, and maybe inspire a contestant or viewer, too.

Will you watch Michelle Obama on Biggest Loser?

If that isn't the pot calling the kettle black . . .

Why does it matter if she indulges herself? She is in really good shape so she obviously doesn't eat badly all the time. Besides it's harder to stay on a diet if you deprive yourself.

I don't watch this show anyway, so I could care less.

If I have to hear about her "amazing arms" one more time, I think I'm gonna be sick. She's tending toward overweight, and so is one of her daughters. Even during the "let me tell you how to eat" campaign they have not improved. Who knows why she's doing this? I don't have time to watch "the biggest loser" (or any other TV) because I'm busy taking my kids outdoors and such.

she should work on losing that big butt before telling others to get in shape.

Sorry i don't see her as overweight and as first lady she's using her postition to try and get people to be aware of how their eating habits are passed on to their kids. Hello? how many pull ups could George Senior do? I think she's be better off having her husband look at the farm bills and see how we can get fresh food costing less than over processed crap.

I am extremely impressed with Michelle Obama.  She is a fantastic First Lady and she is doing a great deal of good.  Her White House garden was something that was certainly needed and let us know they are people who care about their kids and also care about others.  She offers kids the opportunity to come to the gardens and help plant, to help harvest, and to eat some of the produce they have helped on.  Kids eat more vegetables when they are involved in their production.  She goes to schools and talk more about vegetables, healthy food and exercise. Almost all of us need to eat more veggies and some fruit and grains.  She is promoting exercise too, in ways she can, such as the Biggest Loser.Remember there will be a biggest winner in the biggest losers.  Mrs. Obama and her husband are some big winners to me.  I want healthy food available.  Mrs. Obama is a Mom, like you and me.  She cares about kids, her own kids and also other kids, American kids.  She cares about obesity and making a change..  More power to people who do care about other people .
