Mo or No?: Shanna

I swear, The Biggest Loser has more Mormons than any other reality TV program in the universe (in fairness, I have no way to substantiate that claim because The Biggest Loser is the only reality TV show I watch).  This season, there is one confirmed Mormon contestant, Burgandy Keel (check out her Facebook fan page where she links to Mormon messages — a dead giveaway)…but last night I found myself wondering if there might be another: Shanna.

Evidences in favor…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Her voice.

Evidences against…

None. Did you hear her voice?

My Mo Rating: 110%.

How about you?  Enter your percentage in the comments below.  In the meantime, I (or perhaps our resident Googler, Eric) will search around the internet for the answer!

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!

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.

Mo or No?: Russell Brunson

It’s with tremendous joy that I bring you my first ever Mo or No? post.  I’ve had this idea for months, but until yesterday, had not found a viable candidate!

Here’s how it works: I stumble across someone in the media, online, or in pop culture who strikes me as particularly Mormon.  I post a picture and some information.  Then we all get to give a percentage of just how Mo we think s/he is!  Sound like fun?  You betcha!

Russell Brunson

I received a solicitation from sales guru Brian Tracy in my inbox the other day advertising a program by internet marketer Russell Brunson.  When I clicked through to the website and saw the video on the page, my eyes just about popped out of my head.  I thought, “this guy’s gotta be Mormon.”  Here’s the video.  As you watch, note the evidences…

  • He looks like he’s 22
  • …And he’s married
  • …with 4 kids
  • …in pictures in a field in the background
  • He’s got some sort of tender quote on a colored board displayed in his office
  • He’s from Boise
  • He’s wearing a collared shirt buttoned up to the second button, with an undershirt underneath
  • He just has that “glow”

My Mo Rating: 96.3%.
