What happened to the green team? I really liked them in week one and still have a soft spot for them, but they do seem to have a chip on their shoulders. They also seemed to have more of a competitive spirit earlier in the show. I was sad to see Migdalia voted off but am so glad that they do show you where the voted off contestant is now. Good to see that she is still losing weight.
I can't stand Melissa. I was going to ask did she lie, but I really don't care. I just don't like her. At all. There usually is one contestant per season I do not like, and she's it for this one.
How do they lose so much weight so quickly? OK, I'm still struggling with my impatience and jealousy, and the numbers they pull just kill me. They've all lost more in weeks than I have in a whole year.
What do you think of Bob and Jillian's approach to the contestants? I do like how this show contrasts their two styles. Jillian's contestants lose more weight, and I agree with her emphasis on emotions, but there were times tonight when I thought Bob was much smarter in his approach.
How do the contestants' journey relate to folks trying to lose weight at home? I came up with ten lessons I've learned from watching this show, but I'm taking another look at this question. I think their emotional journeys can be relevant, but I wonder if I need to continue watching this show. The amount of weight they are able to lose in a short period of time is just not achievable for me. Yes, it could be a metaphor, but still... If you watch it, what do you get out of it?
Who are you rooting for? I don't really have a favorite yet. Pulling for someone always makes it more interesting and fun.
If you watched the latest episode of The Biggest Loser, what are you thinking about? The consensus on Twitter is definitely anti-red team and anti-beard (brown team). If you are on Twitter, you can follow me at: http://twitter.com/healthywrtr I'm having too much fun with it since I signed up Sunday.
