Idea for Paper
I would like to explore weight loss reality TV shows. I would like to make the point that they may be equally dis-empowering as they are empowering. I would like to use the shows the biggest loser,VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club,Oxygen’s Dance Your A** Off , and Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back. I will make the case that these shows are doing more harm than good and the television shows are only taking advantage of the obesity crises in America for money and not to truly help our people. I will attempt to use the Marxist Criticism and the Visual Rhetorical Criticism.
