All of this is just my opinion and from my personal profiling.
D & I use the DVR to control the television to our schedule. So sometimes, we're a bit behind in seeing things. Last night, we watched the first episode of TBL. Immediately, we went into a routine that we fell into as soon as we started watching it. We hit the Strength Training! I knew it would be a matter of time before we would get to the "debate!"
Jillian, love her or hate her? D doesn't support her approach. Personally, I can take her technique. I'm familiar with it and I believe I could live with it. I also believe that she does show compassion but this is Jillian.
NBC's producers wants the audience to cringe when she's ever in the frame! Bob feeds the fire in a humorous way. Dolvett assesses the crime scene after the body count. Whatever. I've always said that Bob and I would reach harmony in training. I love the guy. He has heart. Dolvett shows the same emotion. Jillian amplifies the hurricane. Still, I believe she has the compassion but will give you glimpses when crossroads are evident.
The underlying current which we all know is the failure rate to maintain or even continue goal achieving to "normal BMIs." I did some data mining and I believe, as a betting man, I could make money on choosing who will not continue the lifestyle! I'm not going to get personal in this area. But speaking as one who never conceived of living a healthy lifestyle until I was 60 years old, I know if you truly want it bad enough for you, you will be successful! That's where I would hear myself echoing some of the same words that will come from Jillian's mouth. I've even heard Bob & Dolvett say similar things. Jillian just comes out so much more in your face.
No matter what, I am motivated by all three of the BL trainers as well as Alison Sweeney. Ali, by the way, is showing the impact of her all-in approach to a healthy lifestyle. She looks more cut and proportioned than ever. She also has authored books and DVDs with her spin on working out.
I wasn't going to watch this season. Because of the emphasis on childhood obesity, (of which I went through to a degree.) Jillian coming back, and the education I get from the show, it was inevitable. I'm going to the betting window. Enjoy the show!
