I think you miss the point of the show:
1. To make money for the production company and all involved.
- Secondard point would be to determine the "Fittest" family out of a group of families. They can't all be the fittest.


What exactly is the problem here - can't you all move on.

But it’s called “ Ireland’s Fittest Family “. It’s hardly that.

The family that wins will be "irelands fittest family" - you get that right?
(and obviosuly within the constraints of the show)
(ie not really irelands fittest family)

In the main show? Are you mixing it up with the 'celeb' edition that they did?

No there were definitely in laws, I think one family who had a very impressive older gentleman were one.

Must be getting harder to get families for it

Are you sure? I thought it was two separate families. One was the finnegan-hogans and the other were either just the Finnegans or the Hogans. They were related (cousins, in-laws, something to that effect) but were two separate families iirc.

Anyway, on this year I think that swimming family (Donnachas) will win

I cant remember, and I might well be wrong. It doesnt really matter anyways.

Its a great show, only really getting going now. all three families on Sunday were good and worth going through.

It all comes down to what ridiculous location/challenge they come up with for the final this year, the abseiling one was a farce

Got the cold today so I can really feel the effort that is taken out of them doing this.

Fair play to them all imo .
Just goes to show how any of the obstacles can destroy their hopes of finishing first .

Only 2 posts on tonight.

Poor performances from the elders once more. You have these young boys pumped up on testosterone dragging their mothers onto the show and them in their old age after pumping out 2 or 3 children 20 years ago. Any team that has parents that are actually fit would win. The most intense exercise some of them parents have done is a walk down the street.

Some real poor families this year. Carrying a parent when really you need someone who has some sort of fitness.

It’s like they randomly pick families without doing some fitness test

The father last night was gased after crossing the beam and over bars

Was it just me or was Anna's make up a little OTT? She's a great coach and a great role model, but she looked like she was off to a wedding or a night out.

I was sure the Hogans were gone after the first two rounds, but they pulled it back.

The Dinan's could win it with the 3 lads so physically strong.
