TV Review: VH1's Money Hungry

VH1's Money Hungry is a reality TV show that pits ten pairs of overweight contestants against each other to see who can lose the most weight. Yeah, you've heard this song before. But what makes this different from other weight-loss shows like The Biggest Loser is, in addition to not having that scary intense Jillian on their show, you put your money where your mouth is on Money Hungry. The winning team will receive $100,000 at the end of the series, but each team had to put up $10,000 of their own money to appear on the show.

Genius move, VH1! Way to cut down on the production costs!

If you think the team that loses the least amount of weight is the one that goes home each week, you've never seen a show on VH1 before. There is a competition, some sort of physical challenge, and the team that loses this event is placed on the chopping block. The remaining teams then vote for another team to join the event's loser on the chopping block. The team on the chopping block that loses the smaller percentage of weight is the team that goes home.

Like a lot of VH1's reality shows, there are certain contestants that seem to be on the show just to be in front of a camera. But like a lot of VH1's reality shows, Money Hungry still rocks. While it's the television equivalent of junk food, it's still pretty satisfying.
