In the last 24 hours, two reality TV shows have crowned their winners. But you only heard about one of them.
While Australia was busy debating the merits of Amy and Tyson’s My Kitchen Rules win, The Biggest Loser: Transformed also wrapped up — not with a bang, but with a whimper.

Listen: Why didn’t the Biggest Loser work? The Binge podcast has some theories. (Post continues after audio.)
At the beginning there was a bit of controversy about contestant Nikki’s starting weight, and a smidgen of debate over whether the show’s more holistic approach was an improvement on the traditional format, but it simply failed to get off the ground.
Now, the finale has passed with barely a blip.
In case you missed it, which you definitely did, the final episode saw Lynton crowned the Biggest Loser for 2017.
