During the weigh-in, I felt Amanda was going to be the one to fall below the automatic-elimination red line. But it ended up being Daniel. Even though I like Daniel, I was happy for Amanda. Though she consistently gets the smallest numbers, she works so hard for each and every pound. I can relate to that, as I'm sure many of you reading this can. Plus, this was Daniel's second chance.
The downer moment of the episode for me was when Daniel went to see his teammate from last season, who was still a really big guy and kept making excuses for why he wasn't focusing on weight loss. He said it wasn't a priority. Dude, seriously, it's a priority.
So, my question for those of you who've seen previous seasons -- do they stop showing transformation moments at some point because they didn't have one for Shay tonight. It made me wonder if they're saving a really big surprise for the finale, like she's met that goal of losing 213 pounds.
Biggest head-scratcher of the night -- what was up with that smack talk between Rudy and Shay? I've been a big Rudy fan, so I didn't like this at all. It made me wonder if something's been going on that we've not been privy to. It just seemed to come out of left field for me.
Oh, and I accidentally got spoiled on something that is going to happen at the finale when I was looking around online. Wish I hadn't. I shall say no more than that.
What were your favorite moments this week? Least favorite? Now that there's a smaller field, any guesses on who will win the overall competition?
