Michael Moore Mistakenly Agrees to Be on “Biggest Loser” Reality Show
Controversial filmmaker and author Michael Moore was recently asked to be on the next season of NBC’s The Biggest Loser series. Moore immediately accepted, NBC sent him contracts to lock in his appearance, and Moore signed and returned them by express mail the very next day. However, Moore, who claims he was previously unfamiliar with the show’s concept, has dispatched his legal team to negotiate his release from the contracts with NBC.
Moore’s sources revealed to him months ago his nomination for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Being positive he would win the famous award, Moore had already planned to exploit his increased notoriety to earn cash from a variety of endorsements. However, after being passed up for the prize, Moore started searching for other ways to support his severe moon pie addiction. With his once tremendous ego waning, Moore immediately accepted an invitation to compete for a cash prize as America’s biggest loser.
Moore believed he had a very good chance of winning the competition and the cash prize. However, little more than a week after returning the contracts to NBC, Moore received an information packet from one of the show’s dietitians, outlining the diet he would be put on in an effort to win the show’s prize. When Moore realized the misunderstanding, he immediately contacted NBC to be released from his commitment to appear on the show. Representatives from NBC declined comment, but apparently refused to release Moore from the contracts. Moore’s attorneys have issued a press release stating that Moore was deceived concerning the true nature of the show and claiming this will be an “open and shut case.”
