Oh, my! -- indeed. That's what I've thought about every episode so far.

ETA: I know @AZChristian & her hubby are fit, healthy septuagenians who have cruised to AK several times. I hope she will point out activities Twit & Gang -- 30-somethings, plus 2 septuagenarians -- could have enjoyed in AK without over-doing it, as the episode unrolls.

Okay guys, I have set my DVR to tape this one. Haven't watched all season but I can't resist a good "Whitney on location doing foolhardy physical activity" story.

These people sure do injure themselves a lot. Mayhaps they should sit down and get real jobs.

God forbid LOL!   

The ones I ready wonder about are Whitney and Buddy.   She's dependent on daddy and he's just a bum.

We ain't all that fit, and I've had a knee replacement and he's had a heart attack.  But we're still in better shape at 72 and 78 than Twit is.

This is our FAVORITE thing to do in Alaska, and we're doing it on our 55th anniversary in August.  Twit can't do it.  It has a 275-pound weight limit.

As I have a serious phobia with heights, the thought of rappeling, zip lining or rock-climbing leaves me totally chilled. I'll be happy just with some nice hiking and seeing the amazing vitas. Or having a chance to take a nice long trail ride (on horseback) through the wilderness.

Do have to admit that seeing Whitney trying to manage on what I'm sure is going to be the easiest hiking trail that they could find in Alaska is going to be amusing.

Anyone in their 70s who walks 10,000 steps every day sounds pretty fit to me. (And, yes. Way more fit than our girl Twit.)

ETA: Holey, moley! I just looked at the AK zipliner info you provided. You couldn't pay me to take that ride! (I have a fear of heights.)

From her SM photos from last year & her Whit-a-Thon page in the AK binder, the MBFFL producers apparently found a zip line in AK with a tram-like box that someone Twit's size can ride. Let the screeching & braying begin.

Thanks for the kind words, Dot!

I suspect that she may be riding Roberts Tramway in Juneau.  That is NOT a zipline.  LOL.

I'm not sure. The brief SM photo (or video, I forget) seemed to show her in a metal box on a zip line rather than on a tram on tracks.

Do you have a link?  I wouldn't want to miss a zipline!!!

ETA:   Roberts isn't on a track; it hangs from wires.  About 20 people ride at the same time.  If one of them is Twit, there would have to be less than 20.

I guess you'll have to listen closely when takes her ride since it wasn't mentioned in the photo I saw.

But if the Roberts tram is on wires, that may well be the ride she takes.

Why do I think that in the show she will successfully manage the 5 mile walk and 5 mile bicycle and everyone will applaud and ooh and aah over her fabulousness — even though we will probably only see the beginning where she will act like it is really really going to be hard and the end where it was really really hard (while she rides in a car between the beginning and end)

I think that was The Hand Tram over Glacier Creek in Girdwood. I wonder who pulled her across, I am sure she did not do it herself.

No she said it was stupid that he chose to stay with his significant other instead of coming with her.

So the only person who knew about Whit-a-thon was Whit? Maybe Heather wanted to walk up a tiny boulder to simulate a mountain trail. Maybe Todd wanted to rock climb a bit.  Nope just "oh by the way Whit a thon".

This shit gets faker by the week.

She is biking on the flattest paved bike trail ever and then hiking on a flat wide path through the woods with one small uphill of switch backs and I have no clue what cliff she is jumping off of. She is a fool. There are bears and moose in Whittier maybe she can find one and yes she just confirmed she went across the hand tram on The Winner Creek Trail ...I hope alone I think it is rated for 2 normal size people. I want Todd to calm down about the highway too, people like him kill people every summer on that highway.

Totally. And her voice and facial expressions get more dramatic too. She is always posing and posturing.

Seems like they just hang around Girdwood and Seward and maybe leave on a cruise. No not really seeing much of the state.

Where does she find those bathing suits?   "Yes I'm normal and yes you WILL be look at me, you WILL!!"   Meanwhile Heather wears a tasteful one piece.  What's wrong with this picture?  Oh....nevermind.

OMGoodness. I am on the phone and just partially watching. I saw Heather's look and caught that something had happened but had no idea that's what she did. So gross.

Only 10 minutes in, so far I just really need to say...STOP SAYING "ALASKERRRR"! I don't know why people think it's cute/cool to end words with -err instead of -a. Maybe I'm just behind the times, I don't know.

Thank you so much. I totally agree.

Now she's cross-referencing ordering a pizza in high school with a stripper as an upgrade from that. Maybe they need to rename the show My Big Fat Fraudulent Life. I think I'm only watching it to remind me of how I live so authentically compared to her and her friends. I guess her only friend in college was a bag of Cheetos.

In Hawaii:

"I can't do this 8k Dad!"

"Yes you can Whitney!"

*fails at it, whines and cries the whole time*

In Alaska:

"My dad makes me second guess myself. He thinks I can't do it, he thinks I'm pushing myself too hard"

Hmmmm...I wonder why Whitney! Such a mystery why your dad would think you couldn't do this!

Why were they screaming? It was just a moderately attractive guy who can't dance, not an actual wolf. Which would have been something to see. Wolf doesn't suit him either.

Good point. I’m planning a trip to the Poconos and was all excited looking at places with hot tubs... now I’m giving them the major side-eye... pee tubs, ugh.

As father required of daughter as payment for HI trip, so daughter requires of friends for the AK trip. The nut does not fall far from the phony, contrived, totally unbelievable tree.

Come to think of it she and the stripper Wolf both have a lot in common. Both are willing to sell the shape of their bodies for money. She should consider changing her name to Hippo.
