Did you watch "The Biggest Loser" last night?

I love watching the show, and get totally inspired by our local team of sisters!

Mandi Kramer (of Meridian) and her sister Aubrey decided to take on The Biggest Loser competition together. If you are wondering how it all works... Mandi spent three months filming near Malibu, California. She told KTVB they all worked out 8 hours, and only ate 1000 calories per day! She also told us it was mentally and physically exhausting. Last night, Mandi and Aubrey had an emotional night (lots of tears) at elimination. Mandi sent herself home in order to keep her sister there... now that is sisterly LOVE.

Here's what she had to say to us last night!

"The Biggest Loser was probably one of the best experiences I have had. Its a bummer that I am home so early but I am excited to see if I learned enough to continue this at home." -Mandi Kramer

Just look at how fantastic she looks!

Mandi says she's looking forward to the finale and losing even more weight! So far, she's lost a jawdroppping 90 POUNDS! Today, Ysabel Bilbao will spend the day with Mandi and get more insight on how she plans to keep up her new healthier lifestyle, now that she's back at home. Look for that at 6pm!

On another reality TV note - The Real World casting call at The Reef downtown yesterday was a big success... lots of locals showed up!

The Real World Casting in Boise

People lined up to audition for the show. You have to be 18 to 24 years old to be on The Real World... (hearing that made me feel so old, by the way) and our spies at the casting tell us applicants had "roundtable" discussions on politics, drugs and current events. Very serious stuff indeed! I'm sure high drama was involved too... they NEED drama on that show.

The location has not been set, but we could just have a local on the next season... Idahoans seem to get lucky when it comes to REALITY TV!
