My Diet Is Better Than Yours (ABC) – Starts 7th January
A dieting competition where five overweight folks each get to choose there preferred dieting program and are mentored by its creators. All in the quest to find out which dieting technique is the best.
Over 14 weeks they go against each other in trying to lose the most weight, where before the final weigh-in have to complete a half marathon and then the most successful dieter gets to win $50k and an appearance in People magazine.
The trainers themselves all come across as strange comedy caricatures and are more than willing to high five at any given opportunity. During the the 14 weeks the contestants are allowed to change their diet once if they don’t think it’s working for them, which leads the hyper excitable trainers to continually have a look of paranoia whenever they talk to camera about how everything’s going.
