Mo or No: Sam and Koli

Today's Contestants: Sam and Koli

If you’re watching The Biggest Loser this season, you’ll notice two things…

  1. These are the FATTEST CONTESTANTS EVER! (They say that every year…)
  2. There’s a pair of Tongan cousins who just might be Mos

Evidences in favor…

  • They’re Tongan.  15.5% of Tongans are Mos.
  • They just seem nice like that.
  • I tried to come up with more evidences in favor, but really, that’s all.
  • EDIT: Koli cries all the time.  That’s a total Mo-man thing to do.  Granted, people on The Biggest Loser cry a lot in general, but Koli seems to cry more than usual, which makes me think he, in particular, is mo’ Mo than the Sam.

Evidences against…

  • I once heard them drop a swear.
  • Sam has (gasp!) earrings.

My Mo Rating: 61%…though I think Sam might be inactive if indeed he is Mo.

What about you?  Enter your percentage in the comments below.

EDIT: Thanks to Eric, our resident master of Googling, we can now answer this question more definitively.  Go here to check Sam and here to check Koli.  If you want to play, answer in the comments first…and then click the links to check your answers.

ABOUT MO OR NO?: I play Mo or No? all the time with my husband and a couple of friends.  Whenever we pass a candidate in the street or at the store, we give each other a percentage based on a cursory glance–and then search for additional evidences (such as capped sleeves, long shorts, CTR rings, extra undershirts, etc.) to verify our hunch.  Online, the game works the same.   Enjoy!

  1. i’m going 79/21 in favor of Mo.

  2. Facial hair and tattoos? I’m betting only 20% in favor of Mo.

  3. I need more information on jello consumption before I can accurately assess this one.

  4. Alex T. Valencic

    You must remember that Mos in the South Pacific have facial hair, tattoos, and piercings a lot more than those in the States. In fact, I think that I know more PolyMos with tattoos than without!

    I’m going to go with a 78% in favour.

  5. Well, I haven’t seen any of The Biggest Loser this season so I am going entirely off of this post.

    I’m going with 15.5% in favor.

  6. Gennie, I had a similar thought.

    Alex, PolyMos = lol

    This one is tricky. I’ve Googled, but so far no dice. Anyone else have any luck?

  7. I did have some luck. (To be honest, and it’s partly because I’ve done some contract work for Google before, I enjoy the Internet search more than I do guessing. But before I did my searching, my odds were 35%, which is almost a random number, because all I knew is what was on this page, and I’ve never even seen the show before.)

    As usual, Katie, feel free to delete this message if you think it will spoil anyone’s fun. But I figured this was OK, since you did ask.

    SPOILERS AHEAD:

    Well, these aren’t blatant spoilers, but you can use this info to find out the answer.

    Koli’s MySpace name is “kolion.”

    Sam’s Twitter name is “eyeonzion.”

  8. While I was just about ready to resubmit my guess as “99%,” those eyeonzion tweets are….atypical. 🙂

    Even so, I’m now guessing at 51%, to account for membership with a total lack of Zion Curtain influence.

  9. Eric, you are THE BEST. You never spoil the fun. I’ll edit the post to let people know they can check their answers by heading to the appropriate MySpace / Twitter accounts.

    Whitney, did you check yet?

    This game is so fun.

  10. Oh yes, I read each and every one of eyeonzion’s tweets before submitting my second guess.

    But now I actually checked the MySpace page, and there’s no question in my mind whether my guess was accurate or not. 🙂

  11. Alex T. Valencic

    Wow, Eric, you are definitely the master of the Google search! Maybe I need to be more dedicated to my searches, though, rather than giving up after the first page. 😛

  12. I never did figure out the Hildebrandts. And I spent way too much time trying.

  13. I thought the handle eyeonzion, in contrast to the tweets in question, was especially…odd.

    But yeah, the MySpace page leaves no room for dispute.

    I would seriously send someone a $15 gift certificate to Amazon.com if they could figure out the Hildebrandts. For reals. I would.

  14. Alex T. Valencic

    Who are the Hildebrandts?

  15. Alex T. Valencic

    Okay, so I admit I have spent way more time on this than I should have. I even enlisted my mum’s help over the weekend. No luck. I think it is time that Jack just call them up and say, “Hi, this is going to sound weird, but there is a debate going on right now over whether or not you guys are Mormons. Can you settle it for me? Thanks!”

    Heck, I’ll call them, if someone sends me the phone number! I’m used to calling people out of the blue!

  16. Oh come ON, Alex, you’re smarter than that. Didn’t you look at the MySpace page? It lists his religion!

  17. Yikes, you were probably talking about the Hildebrants. And they are very much an enigma to all of us. So sorry!

  18. Alex T. Valencic

    Yeah, sorry, talking about the Hildebrandts I must remember to be clearer in my comments…

  19. I’m supposing you know the answer to this by now. Obviously if Sam is a member, he is inactive I presume. Koli is a Mo.
