Ypsi: Reality TV

The Detroit News reports from Saturday’s auditions for NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” show, held at the Gardner-White Furniture store in Macomb Township. Rochelle Woods of Ypsilanti, who weighs 377 pounds, was among those hoping to be chosen for the show. She’d like to lose more than 190 pounds: ”It’s a shame a lot of people on TV, who want to lose weight, say now I can get a boyfriend. I never had problems getting a man. I don’t think you have to feel bad about yourself to lose weight. I think I am gorgeous and funny. I just need to lose weight.” [Source]
