Whatever your opinion of reality shows, one thing is for sure: They know how to work a cliffhanger.
Information being a big reveal’s worst enemy, here’s what we’re able to share about Tuesday’s season four premiere of “Extreme Weight Loss,” the ABC series chronicling the yearlong, weight-loss odyssey of a group of “dangerously obese” men and women as they set out to lose at least half of their body weight:
In the season opener, we meet Charita Smith, a 32-year-old hairstylist and mother of three from Colorado Springs who works two jobs to support her family. She hopes the show’s health experts can teach her to address a food addiction and reduce her weight from 310 pounds, considered severely obese for her 5-foot-6 frame. We’re told Smith was raised in a strict, religious home and her dysfunctional relationship with food stems from a “bad decision” she made when she was 19.
