I Already Cried and It's Only Week Three

It's ridiculous how well reality TV manipulates my emotions. Stupid sentimental music and slow-motion montages. One of my favorite people on Biggest Loser won the weight loss challenge this week and it made me cry. Plus it kept his team safe and so they all cried and so I kept crying. Ridiculous.

Also, maybe watching JR Martinez' story on Dancing with the Not-So Famous People made me cry.

Also, maybe I cry watching Anne of Avonlea. And Gilbert won!!!

Hugh has never made a movie that made me cry, but I still love him. And nearly three years ago I wrote about how much he needed to be Val Jean in a musical movie of Les Mis. Clearly Hollywood reads my blog since it's happening now! I hope they give me tickets to the premier cuz I totally deserve them.

Finally, I really wanna tell you guys about all the awesome stuff I did this summer, but I'm waiting to get all my pictures first. Soon. I hope.

I almost forgot---you really need to watch The Sing-Off of NBC!!! More than any other show---except maybe Psych. But for real, it's amazing! SUCH talented people, AMAZING judges AND Vocal Point is on there and I've been in love with them since 2006. And one of the singers of Delilah is in one of my most favorite bands ever in Provo. So watch it. And fall in love with them.

I missed Biggest Loser last night, I'm going to have to catch up tonight. Thanks for posting the picture of Gilbert. I had almost forgotten his hotness.

That is some excellent Les Miz casting.

Becky Dayton said...

Perfect picture of Gilbert. I knew it would be him.

So excited about Hugh Jackman.

Love The Sing-Off, but I haven't been watching full episodes. Just the Vocal Point stuff. Maybe I'll start watching full episodes.

Also your talk of slow music reminded me of this clip:

Congratulations to Gilbert! The number one leading man of all time ~swoon~

I'm glad you told us about the new Les Miserables movie. Definitely something to look forward to. I haven't watched The Sing-Off, but I'll definitely check it out.

I love when Gilbert wins her heart!

Les Mis will be worth watching with him in it. Yum.

Missed Biggest Loser, haven't seen a single episode yet.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Yay for Gilbert. As if there could be any other outcome. Sheesh.

Melanie Jacobson said...

The X Factor has been making me a mess. It's ridiculous.

Has Psych started up again? I know it's supposed to come back this month.

Kazzy said...

Yup, JR and Coach Mike. Both great guys worth crying over...

Cynthia said...

I missed BL too. I have Hulu Plus but it's crap. I'll have to see if I can find it online somewhere.

I heart Gilbert too. And that guy from "The Man from Snowy River" Sigh.

I think you should go into "casting"
and I cry all the time
Even if it is a toilet paper commercial, I'll cry, if it's written right.
Love everything Anne of Green Gables. I WANT to go to PE Island someday.
JR's story on DWTS is the ONLY reason I am watching it this year (such a dumb cast overall I think)
and ...well basically all personal stories and experiences, depending on the circumstance, can be prety heartwretching.
as IF I NEED heartwretching.
You are a sweety Barb.

I love Gilbert. Have you ever watched Wind At My Back? Good stuff.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I clearly need a tv! Ours is down, and I have no idea of what you speak of.

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Okay, I stinking LOVE Biggest Loser! I always cry! And that was a perfect moment!! One of those jump up and down moments---ahhh. :) Hugh---mmm, drool.

Chris and Sara Waldron said...

I'm glad that Gilbert won, I'm excited to hear about Les Miserables! I haven't watched Biggest Loser this season, but now I'm tempted to start.

the Lola Letters said...

Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables? Woo-hoo! Man are you good!

And yay Gilbert Blythe!

I have to say, my heart pitty-patted the very most at the mention of Gilbert early on in the running. Ahhhhh.

charrette said...

Okay, clearly Ido not watch enough t.v. :)

BUT I have watched every single episode of the Sing-Off. I can't get enough! Vocal Point is wowing everyone. And I love Deliliah!

Also? I have watched nearly every episode of Psych, as it's my 12-year-old's favorite show. Awesome family bonding time.
