The Biggest Loser

I told you I was going to do it. 

It starts tonight, and I'm excited! It's probably my favorite show. It's always so inspiring, and sweet. I'm still mad about Helen winning last season. Well, not mad..but Tara should have won!

He is my next door neighbor. He's a pretty cool guy and comes to the restaurant I work in quite often.

lol.  Once you're on the Biggest Loser it must be tough to go to restaurants because you'd feel pressure to only ever order the healthiest menu item.

Oh, that (for some reason) reminded me. I turned the tv on before the show started, so it was the end of Entertainment Tonight, and they were talking to Chris from the first (?) season (the one who won, and then gained all the weight back, and was challenged by Bob to lose it again). He and his wife were talking about how once you are on the Biggest Loser, they drop you once you're off the show, and forget about you. Whine, whine, yada. I was like..really? Do you except a life time commitment of care from a reality show? I mean, you're on your own in your life, buddy.

I agree!!  Was it just me or did the white team guy smile in an I like you way at the pink team girl when she was on the scale?  I like the yellow team mom and the white team and green team the most so far.  My husband thinks I'm nuts because I was crying basically the whole show.  Oh and is just me or has Allison lost some weight?

I didn't see white team guy do anything like that. Yellow team was the daughter and dad who went home for 30 days, but I think you mean orange team. I like the orange team. I didn't cry at all during that episode...it was just...fine. I think Allison seems to be one of those people who fluctuates, plus, she recently (last season) had her baby.  ;)b

I couldn't believe how big all the contestants are, every season they get so much bigger.... I love the show but I think it gives people an unrealistic goal as far as weight loss. I mean what average person loses 20 pounds in 1 week? Or close to 10 pounds a week for several weeks in a row. If you're morbidly obese and begin exercising you will lose quite a bit during the first month because there's so much weight to lose plus water weight, etc. But most people I see at the gym trying to lose weight are overweight, not even close to morbidly obese, so for someone a little overweight expecting to lose that much at one time just isn't possible. But then again it's a reality show. I have a lot of mixed feelings about it but watch it anyway. It's always sad when someone loses 5 pounds in a week and is disappointed in themselves, it's like wtf that's amazing! It takes some people a month or longer to lose that.

You're right ac it was orange team.  I like the mom she went crazy and just let it out.  She reminds me of my mom.

Yeah, I liked the season premiere. It was not as emotional as the last one, but still good. I felt soooo bad for the blue and yellow teams and I am so excited that they at least got to meet Bob and Jillian and get to come back. So yay. Yeah, I definitely like the orange team mom. She seems to be a real fighter and fun too. I am not sure who I am rooting for yet. It is just too early to tell. I am so glad the show is back though!  :)

Sorry, I'm always behind....
I really like the green team (Miggly and Migdelina?) and the gray team.
I felt so bad for the blue team, when the mom was crying and screaming how sorry she was to her daughter - that chocked me up a little, but other than that, no tears...
And yes, AC, we were also wondering about the pink girl's back - I think it might be moles or something.  That would be a weird place for a tattoo considering she's always been that heavy.

This week was boring! ..except Maria (white)..can you believe that? Her nose was gushing. It was nice that they did so well. I've already forgotten who went home...

Oh I didn't think it was boring.....the red woman really irritated me, but the game players always do....and when Patti (the woman that went home) said that her diabetes didn't affect her day to day life, but her feet are numb!?!?  How is that not affecting your day to day life?  Too bizarre....

I was disappointed they didn't show the green team very much - they were my favorite from last week, but now I kinda like the black team.

I'm happy to be feeling more involved with this season this week. I'm getting to know them more. It seemed to take longer this season.

pink team-they just don't seem very..smart. I like them ok, but they just don't seem to be thinking things through. The mom did not even direct the daughter in the challenge.

green team-Crazy shut down! She's been so conditioned to not be emotional, but I was glad to see her seemingly want to work at it. I'm not rooting for them, but I don't totally dislike them.

white team
-Not good to see that he's not working hard. Too bad for Maria.

black team-they're nice.

gray team
-my favorites so far. they seem to really work hard, and seem nice.

orange team-I like the guy, but he's been quiet. Neutral about the mom. They didn't really show much orange team.

red team-whoaaaaaaaaa. I don't even know what to think, but I do know Bob and Jill know what they are talking about. I might start to dislike red.

purple and brown-they are fine. brown twin seems to work hard.

yellow team-I want to see them come back. I really like the guy.

blue team
-I like them ok, but I like yellow more.

I can see where green team is coming from.  I think it's a latin thing.  The woman is the matriarch of her family and has to be strong for everybody and in general they really don't show much emotion but, anger.  I think it's going to be tuff for her to get through that and even tuffer for Jillian cause latin ladies don't give.  I think grey team is my fave so far because they have good workout ethic.  You can tell thyey really want to be there.  As for red come on seriously??????  Two weeks in a row??????  I don't think Michael is even trying.  Come on now Shay was theh biggest too and she worked her butt off!!!  He seems to be trying to make excuses for himself.

1. Is the 'presidential mile' actually a mile? Can't be? That would be a long challenge.
2. Red team-> definitely least favorite, and cringe worthy
3. I loved when Jill said something like, "it's as if you're trying to tell me the earth is flat. It's not, man. It's round."
4. Green team is bitchy.

I loved when jillian went off on the red team.  That woman is so whiny/bitchy/heinous.  I think the gray team is my favorite.  They seem like good people.

I really like the yellow team, but I hope they don't have to crush anyone! I know he's determined. Blue and yellow were both amazing!

I like that new dramatic music. DUM dumdumdumdumdum with the violins and stuff.

eyeroll at Bob. Melissa played his asparagus. Sooo close to her going home.

I LOVED that 80s music they were playing for Michael in his head, at the challenge. That was hilarious. I'm liking him more.

I knew it had to be John, because there wasn't enough time left for a deliberation/elimination. : (

I was like, "THAT'S WHAT YOU GET, BITCH." I did not like Melissa, and I think she's fake.

Yay for O'Neal, and the pop challenge.

Elimination challenge! To be continued!! Omg. 8 \ Sad to see those two under the yellow, though.

It was a neat week at the training place.

Blue vs. Black coming!

SO AWESOME that the black team won!!! Stupid Michael. Don't these people learn that being at all vindictive will get them targeted? I don't even really dislike the guy, but bah. Goooo black team. It was probably time for Miggy to go, and it was so great to hear about her at home attitude change. Sorry that Darrel had to go, but he looks amazing as well.

OH, and did anyone else think it was "DariUs"? I was always thinking it sounded funny when his mom said "DarIS," but apparently that's his name! He's still way under the radar.

Yayyy for Stephanie.

I missed most of last night's show, but I did see the part where Michael chose the teams.  I'm with you, AC..I don't understand why they always think they can get away with being an asshole.  He purposely divided those couples.  Ugh.  He's kinda been getting on my nerves for a while anyway though.  I'm not exactly sure why, I just don't really like him.  I wish the show wasn't 2 freakin hours long.

O'Neal is intense; that poor guy.
I'm just rooting, and rooting, and rooting for the black team. Whenever Sam was like, no one believes in us, no one out there thinks we can do it, I was like "I do" ..outloud. Sad that Cheryl had to go. I don't feel like we ever got to know much about her, but she seems to be doing an amazing job at home.
That was a crazy challenge. Oh, and next weeks show looks crazy! Michael goes home? I'm so sick of him.

I can always tell like 2 minutes ahead of time when they are about to do one of those promotion things. Bleh.
