Jeremy has the highest % of weight loss in the house as of last week. I think that he is a lot more genuine about wanting to win. I'll root for Kim, but will be happy as long as Conda walks away empty handed.

I'm surprised that they didn't conspire to have one go home so that one could win the big prize and one could win the at home prize.

i didn't get to see it, but I'm guessing from your comment Lainie, that Jeremy got back in? R U kidding me??? Have to agree then with Laura's yuck... bummer... Well, in that case, i'd be rooting for Kim too... but she has seemed to make more of an authentic transition... I don't think she came in intending to be an evil witch... seems she just has a bit of hardness that really showed when she got involved with Conda...

I feel the same way, Laura! I was so hoping Mike would get in. He's done fantastic!!

I really, really, really, don't want Conda or Jeremy to win. I'm not the biggest fan of Kim either, but I am pulling for her to win.

I don't think there is a conflict. I just think that this season hasn't been much fun.

i can't tell if there's real conflict or not between Bob & Dolvett, but Dolvett is growing on me... It was harder when there were 4 trainers... I do miss & wonder about Jillian. She was on The Doctors in the fall/winter... saw her writing articles for AOL the other day... Another person who's really grown on me is Alison... she's loosened up & seems to care about the contestants...

I am looking forward to seeing the rest return...

I wonder if we'll get to vote in the 3rd spot like the last few seasons...

To whomever mentioned that they thought this has been the worst season of BL ever:

I couldn't agree more!! I'm glad they only have the 2 trainers this season and I'm even more happy that Dolvett's one of them!! He's some serious eye candy! I feel like all the contestants have done this season is whine, whine, whine! The fact that Conda's in the finale is more a testament to her brother and not because of her own hard work. I will though, give her aknowledgement for losing weight-when she finally stopped complaining, she did start doing what was asked of her. But that's just it, she has only been doing what's been asked of her. She's going to go home and won't have Bob or Dolvett there to tell her what to do. I hope I'm wrong but I think she's going to fall apart because she won't know what to do.

I'm looking forward to the past contestants coming back to win a spot back.

The one thing I have to give Kim is that she has worked hard to lose the weight. Conda has done just enough to get by and then has been "helped" by the others protecting her, like when her brother made sure she had immunity from the challenge that week. I'm with you Lainie -- I'm hoing that there is someone from home that has kicked it into high gear and will knock both of these ladies out.

I'm still betting that in the next reunion show, Conda will have put the weight back on.

I agree Lainie, the voting out for whatever reasons, good or bad, is what sent people home... so why not give them all a chance to come back. If it were on merit... always a red line... then yeah, they didn't do their part... or their bodies didn't cooperate...

I have always found it frustrating when someone can lose 10 lbs and fall below the line because they didn't lose 1 more lb, so they beat themselves up and get booted out... when in reality 10 lbs is phenomenal...

I have been so disappointed in this season. It is by far the worse season yet and I've seen every season. It didn't surprise me that Mark and Buddy walked away. They were all about the money and they saw their chances slipping away from them. I really hope NBC goes after them for breach of contract. They need to be the example.

I haven't liked Conda from day 1. I'm hoping that a better player gets to come back so I can root for them. Kim isn't as bad as Conda, but she does have an attitude. I didn't like it when she said that the other people didn't deserve to come back. The reasons for the people who were voted out were mainly because they were threats or not liked. I think they do deserve a chance to come back and show Conda and Kim just how great they have been working.

If Conda told another contestant that, guessing she told the producers... I don't know what they are thinking (the producers..) this show could be so much more, better & truly inspiring...

i know there have been times where i really wished i could go someplace like the show... I do wonder if they will keep it off... I was shocked last night when Kim lost 15 lbs... How is that possible? in 1 week at that lower weight... she must be getting close to goal... I've never lost 15 lbs in a week except the 1st week of a fad/crash diet...

Conda actually told a previous contestant prior to the start of the show that she intended to be a villian. The person thought she was kidding until she saw the show.

The most disheartening part is that all these drama queens will end up putting the weight back on because they really haven't changed their insides.

I was still amazed with the cooking challenge a few weeks back that contestants who had been on the show for might-near 3 months didn't know how to create a healthy meal.

Conda and Kim.....really? Knew we couldn't get that lucky. If the next season doesn't have better participants, they will lose a lot of viewers.

it's almost been like watching Jerry Springer... like they cast for contention & nasty... i don't like it and have been going to water zumba instead of watching more than not... including last night...

maybe now they'll stop casting for nasty/conflict...

i am much more enjoying the revolution... it reflects & focuses on the real reasons I want to watch... to be truly inspired by the transformations...


it's hard to be inspired by people like Conda & her brother...

I'm glad Chris was able to pull it together at home. CAN'T wait for next week. I'm surprised I didn't hear about the walk-out sooner, but in reading that they drop two of the players after the walk-out, I'm just hoping Conda is one of them:

"Contestants on The Biggest Loser 13, the “No Excuses” season currently airing, walked off the set this week in protest of the show’s latest twist, and although production has resumed, it is without two of the contestants. Meanwhile, trainer Bob Harper has called the cast, with four exceptions, “nasty” people who are “bullies.”

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that “nearly all of the remaining contestants have walked off the show and are threatening to quit after learning about a secret ‘twist’” that would allow eliminated contestants to return. In a follow-up report, the site said production resumed after two people who walked out didn’t return, although it isn’t clear if that was by their own choice or if they were removed.

Bob Harper told Radar that the contestants this season are “bullies,” saying, “I’m going to regret this. Emily, Cassandra, Chism, I love them they’re really fantastic. Buddy, Buddy’s a really sweet guy. The rest of them, they’re nasty!’”"

I agree, I really liked Chris's makeover and loved Kim... she seems to have grown stronger instead of pettier... I can't believe the green team is still in this... and that they cut the episode!

ok - loved the makeovers. Waiting for 2nd half next week,

Kim is fast becoming my favorite. Great attitude!

I really hadn't paid any attention until it was mentioned last night that Chris is actually younger than me! I would have guessed in her 60's. Wow! I would have freaked to look like her at that age. I love my hairdresser!

I have never missed a season of Biggest Loser. I can say that this season is the worse season ever. I get so angry at them. I don't even have a favorite this season. I was happy for Kim winning that challenge and then getting $7K for the 7 lbs she lost. She's a single mom, so I'm sure she can use the extra money.

Conda was pretty fast to throw her friend under the bus. I really get the impression that the game took over instead of why they are really there. I'm digging that makeover week is going to be at the White House. I just wish some different people were getting to go.

OK - how can we be this far into the season and none of these bozos know how to cook? Conda was making it sound like she cooks for everyone. They better hope they win the meal plan for when they go home. I thought the judges were flabergasted on what a poor showing they got. And Chris' whole meltdown? She just needs to start standing up to thise young'uns and stop trying to be so polite. I know that I can cook a chicken breast in 20 minutes, even on a small burner. She has a problem standing up for herself.

I didn't like her expression when her brother helped her get immunity. You could just see her wrapping him around her finger. I get the empression that after this is over - she'll gain the weight back.


By the way - have you seen an egg lying around here?

I can't believe that they gave Conda the immunity this week. Boy does she have everyone snowed. I was actually praying for her to have a weight gain, not that anyone would vote her off. I'm hoping that her and her brother both go below the yellow line together to break up their team. Kimmy asking to go home was noble and typical for any parent, but her daughter looked so smug that I was hoping they would get a backbone and send her home instead. Ungrateful, entitled brat. My guess is that these young'uns will gain the weight back when this is over.

(ok - that is my weekly rant)

I agree with everyone who says they don't like this entitled group. The last season's contestants were so much more likeable. This group makes me feel ashamed to be fat in a whole different way! I mean--I always knew I didn't like the way I looked overweight, but this group makes fat people seem entitled and whiney...something I certainly never thought I was ! I have always thought overweight people were kind, giving, maybe too giving, etc., but not entitled and whiney and selfish! This group of contestants gives overweight people a bad name! And, of course, Conda is the worst--get rid of her ASAP!!!

I think there are too many whiney little brats this season that are immature, unfocused, and entitled.

I miss the days of people like Mike and Tara. I can hardly stand watching some of these people. I've been fast forwarding past the drama parts because they make me want to slap somebody

(I'm on total rants this season and the last one)

That was a good rant though. I liked that part too. As for my rant from last week, I liked how Bob handled things this week -- he looked at the Black Team and made it clear that they were week 6 and she was week 2 and she needed their support and guidance.

I think that the Red team can all disappear (except santa) and I'd enjoy the show more. There is such a lack of respect from the younger members of the house. It is discusting.

Bring on more time spent on talking nutrition and more instruction on how to do some of their exercise routines at home. That would make the show SO much better than the drama.

emoticon really loved the eating part of Biggest Loser last night, finally it was more in depth without displays of revulsion by the person leading it... when the others made gaggerific faces/comments about food choices (like in prior seasons), it always made me feel like a failure b/c i just could not relate... personally my eating choices are like those from last night, and not eating fast food or those choices has been almost inconcievable... it goes beyond just learning the calorie/nutrition impact, we also have to understand how it truly harms us (aka I am wearing way too much food and getting physically sick from it...) then begin to accept and then work on changing it. I have found changing those core beliefs and attitudes and cultural expectations more difficult than I ever would have expected... and I do better with people helping me understand than someone demeaning my old choices...

k.... guess I had a rant in me! LOL There, I feel better now!!! (grins :)

I really don't have a favorite yet, but I can tell you that I do not like Conda one bit. She is so negative. I don't like to be around negative people. I'm surprised that they haven't kicked her out yet. Maybe they are afraid of her. lol

I do like the season. Hopefully, we will see more about nutrition and food preparation again.

So the Aqua team made it back on -- good for them. However, the two young girls on the red team should be kicked off and soon. What a bunch of whiney, backstabbing spoiled, brats! If I was Dolvett, I'd pull them aside and chew their a**! Can't stand people like that. Join the team but shut your mouth??? Really? My vote is for Santa.


Which reminds me -- the two young boys on the blue team are just as bad. Disrespectful spoiled brats. They have some rough life lessons ahead of them!


(I'm fired up if you can't tell)

I was surprised it was only 1 hour last week... I liked that the weighin wasn't so dragged out with so many commercials & silly suspense, but it zipped by so fast I had a hard time catching it! I do wish they would spend more time on food & exercise. So one team was out of the gym but how did they exercise?

So far I'm digging season 13. The contestants are quite as large as they've been the last couple of years and you can see it on the scale. It's hard for people to hit double-digits weekly losses which is more realistic for most.

I can't remember the 19 year old boys name, but I like him. He seems to be mature for his age in some ways, which is refreshing. I thought I like the ex-body builder, but she's starting to annoy me a little.

I would love if they would show *how to* a meal and an exercise at least each show. I'd like to see what they do outside the gym too, especially poolwork, and even exercise equipment and clothing for home use, but not advertisements... I'd prefer they didn't show brands...

emoticon however, it could all be PINK! emoticon emoticon

I like that they did the walk through in the grocery store. I'd wish they would show more about nutrition and instead of showing the people getting beaten to death in the gym, I'd like it if they would demonstrate some of the exercises people can do at home if they don't have a gym.

It is reality tv, but it could be more helpful.

I think that the way they've divided up the teams this time is really interesting, and will push contestants to dig deep inside themselves. I must say, I do wish the show would go back to one hour, instead of two, and that they'd stop showing all the interpersonal drama. It's getting to be a bit too Survivor-ish for my taste.

I just want 'em to show people sweatin' in the gym, eatin' healthful foods, and steppin' on the scales!!!! emoticon

Still, I'm definitely enjoying watching this season.

Note to self: There is no way over, under, or around this. The only option is to go through it. You are strong; you are courageous. You can do it. Don't give up.

The new season is about to begin. Here is a chat thread for thosse BL fans!


The Biggest Loser: No Excuses

"The Biggest Loser" returns with a bang for Season 13 when the contestants arrive at the ranch and get one of the biggest surprises ever in the series' history. They arrive in teams of two - including mother/daughter, father/son, brother/sister and husband/wife, all eager to change their lives together. But they're shocked to discover that they will not only be split up - they will also be competing against the person they came with. They'll be pushed out of their comfort zones in a way they have never been before - and one team won't even make it on to the ranch - as the season of "No Excuses" begins.

All of the contestants have the same goal: losing weight and getting healthy. But they all have different excuses for why they never lost the weight before, ranging from being too busy, not knowing how to eat right, being emotional eaters, knowing they could always start a weight-loss program "tomorrow" and more. So the season of "no partners" will also be a season of "no excuses" - as week in and week out, all the typical reasons for not getting in shape will be addressed.

The contestants will hit the ground running with a three-part challenge as soon as they arrive. While 18 of the 20 contestants come to the ranch with loved ones, two will initially be paired as strangers. Following the initial challenge, each of the pairs will be divided into two new competing groups of individual players who will be trained by either Bob Harper or Dolvett Quince, both fiercely competitive and determined to whip their contestants into shape, and deliver the season's $250,000 grand-prize winner.

Hosted by Alison Sweeney, "The Biggest Loser" will feature new contestants that include Nancy Rajala, who has 13 children and 55 grandchildren and didn't gain weight until she became a widow at 52, Kim Nielsen, a former professional wrestler and single mother of three whose career ended when she broke her back in a wrestling match, and Roy Pickler, a Santa Claus and scout leader who wants to get in shape so he can continue taking scout troops on adventures as he has for almost 25 years.

Also competing this season will be former Junior Olympic weight lifter Emily Joy, music producer Adrian Dortch, who has been a background vocalist for artists like Seal and David Foster, Ben Shuh, a father of nine children with a 10th on the way, and Cassandra Sturos, whose weight has held her back from pursuing her dream to move to New York to be a writer.
