Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality show features strong women, and contains empowering messages about losing weight in a healthy way, but buries them under an endless amount of salty language (strongest vocab bleeped), cat fights, and strong sexual references. Drinking is visible during meetings, social events, and private moments. The show is also a promotional vehicle for the Miss Fit Club.
Is It Any Good?
Like most reality shows, it contains the expected sexual innuendo, salty language, and catty arguments. But it also shows how a strong and smart woman can take something that is often regarded as sexist and objectifying and turning into an empowering business venture. It also offers some positive messages about getting fit and the importance of healthy weight-loss.
Unfortunately, it is sometimes a little hard to appreciate these messages when thanks to all the bawdy humor and unnatural over-the-top drama. The good news is that it'll be a fun watch for those who like this kind of voyeuristic entertainment. The bad news is that the positive messages it does contain may not reach folks who can benefit from it.
