  • I work with a bunch of losers. Currently, they're vying for the title of the Biggest Loser.

    Based on the reality TV show, The Biggest Loser, some of my co-workers decided to form teams and challenge each other to see who can lose the most weight (percentage, not total pounds) in eight weeks.

    They paid $5 per person to enter the challenge and agreed to weigh in weekly. The team that loses the least or any team that gains weight has to pay a $2 fine. At the end of the eight weeks, the winners get all the money in the pot.

    Thus, the biggest winner is the biggest loser.
