* ViewersAreMorons: Some viewers don't realize that the speed of weight loss seen on the show is the result of the controlled environment provided by a small army of doctors, personal trainers, and other assorted health experts as they guide the contestants through several hours a day of intense exercise. When these viewers, who are holding down full-time jobs and dealing with everyday life instead of exercising 50 hours a week, manage to lose "only" 3 pounds in a week instead of 13, they wonder what went wrong.
** One challenge in Season 12 addressed this by only giving the teams short windows in which to use the gym, simulating the time constraints faced by most people.

* MsFanservice: Believe it or not, Allison. You'd expect this of Jillian, but her attire on the show isn't nearly as skimpy as what she wears in the show's peripherals (see BareYourMidriff above).

** Jillian. Yes, really.She may be an incredibly pushy trainer who can explode within less than a blink of en eyelid... but when it really comes down to it, even she has sat down with contestants and spoken to them and comforted them, being a former fat girl herself.
