Prior to Hurricane Katrina hitting Louisiana, Carissa fancied herself as something of a philosopher. Her hometown post-Katrina was like nothing she or anyone else in her middle class community could ever have dreamt of, and, as she struggled for food and water, grandiose thoughts about creative projects were forgotten.

The recruiter offers her the chance to start making a lot of money fast, if she'll attempt to loose weight fast on television.
