I understand what you all are saying about the show being realistic, and I agree in most cases that the BL is in no way a healthy or realistic way to go about losing weight. With that said, If I was one of the contestants and had to go on National Television I would want to look the best I possible could, if spanx helped you better believe I would be wearing it.

I hadn't thought about Spanx but I bet you all are right! That is disappointing. I did notice little globs under the guys' T shirts after they lost and then when they lost more it wasn't there so I thought well, I guess it went away when they lost the weight. But that is not realistic! I read somewhere that it takes a year for the skin to shrink back and of course, depending on how old you are, like in my case, it won't go back much. And I would get it cut out if I had the $$ so I looked good wherever I needed to. Why not???? I'm sure Ruby will. I wish they would address that on the BL show.

It definitely looks like they're wearing Spanx, but there's not a whole lot you can do to mask the loose skin on the arms, except wear long sleeves! And you know how the men start wearing shirts about midway through the season? What can I say? Naturally, there's going to be some sagging.

I wouldn't hesitate to have surgery when I reach my goal if I could, but any kind of tucking and/or lifting is just not in my budget. I tell myself that losing those pounds, being healthier, and feeling the freedom that comes from not having to lug around the extra weight is the reward, and I should be less concerned with appearance.

When Ruby went out to L.A. and saw the cosmetic surgeon about her arms, she seemed ambivalent about surgery, but my guess is that when she reaches her goal, she'll definitely have it done...and not just arms. She deserves to look GREAT, and if she can afford it, why not?

Yes, I think they're wearing Spanx! And I wish they wouldn't...they should be honest about what is going to happen when you lose weight.

Shay looked good but I couldn't help but notice the loose skin under her arms and around her knees. She might want to get the extra skin removed when she reaches her goal. Ruby will probably need to to that too.

In the past when I lost 86 lbs I had extra belly skin and underarm skin and no way to afford to have it removed. I actually didn't mind too much...I just dressed to cover up my flaws, and yes I wore Spanx! Fortunately my knees didn't get baggy looking...I actually had a man tell me that I had "killer legs", lol.

I did notice on a picture of Michael after his final weigh in and win, that he had on a snug looking white shirt under the short sleeve shirt he was wearing. I bet they wear some type of spandex or something like that under their weigh in clothes.

My problem with the show is, did anyone notice all the hanging skin under Ashley's arms when she lifted them up? Now that's normal for that kind of weight loss right? So they MUST be wearing binders around their waists to make them look so smooth and "hourglass" shaped. The show needs to be realistic and show people that their waists are not going to be these tiny little things when they lose that much weight. There's gonna be the excess skin which certainly would cause "muffin top"! So I feel it's misleading... if Ashley had that much under her arms then you KNOW she has it around her waist unless she had a tummy tuck. The show just needs to show people the true results of losing that much weight. That's my opinion anyway... :)

I was really happy with the outcome of the show. I definitely noticed the spark between Michael and Ashley, starting in the last show before the marathon. Hmmmmmm! I think Michael did such an amazing job and I'm happy he won. I would have loved to see Ashley win though!

I think Sam and Koli book look amazing, but I too am afraid Koli may gain it back.

Daris looked so great and he's such a handsome young man. It's great to see that he has such a promising future due to his hard work and the massive strides in his self confidence! It was sad to see him before when he thought so little of himself.

Shay looked beautiful, but I do have to wonder why she didn't lose more for that money! Who wouldn't love that motivation?

I'm looking forward to Jillian's show - I think it will be very motivating. I think I would LOVE to have her come to my house for a week!

Did I miss something? Wasn't this the season that Shay, from last season, I believe, was supposed to weigh in,at the finale, for the money they promised her? I don't think it was last season. I don't recall seeing her weigh in,if it was last season.

I saw an interview with Jillian, about her new show. I don't remember what talk show it was, where they went into her home, and looked in her fridge. They found ice cream(Ben and Jerry's), and some other "bad" stuff. She was embarrassed, and making excuses, just like we would have, lol. It was kind of funny. Did anyone else see it?

Michael definitely deserve to win. But Ashley and Daris did great also. A little curious about how Jillian's new show is going to do. There does seem to be a little something something between Michael and Ashley.

Wow, what a great show last night. I was so happy Michael won. He was my favorite from the beginning, but I really thought he didn't have a chance. Most Biggest Losers lose half their weight. I just didn't think he had a chance. Well, he sure proved me wrong. I am just thrilled. He looked wonderful. I also noticed how smitten he looked with Ashley. I wonder if there's a little something going on there.

I was so happy that Daris made it to the final 3. He looked awesome. I think Koli was just in it for the money. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he gained his weight. He did look great though and I hope he continues with his healthy eating and workouts.

I was so happy for everyone. They all looked great. I was surprised that the green and brown teams didn't do any better, but they looked much better than they did when they arrived at the ranch.

I also was surprised that Shay hadn't lost more weight. I was really expecting a 100 lbs to be gone. It would have been if I was in that challenge. lol She did average 1 lb per week thought and that is great. She will have a better chance of keeping it off at that rate.

I can't wait to see Jillian's new show. I think it will be really interesting. I would be scared to have her stay with me for a week. I believe this show is just for a summer fill in and she will be back in the fall with the Biggest Loser.

Erin, I think it's crazy for anyone to attempt what they do on the ranch at home. They have medics and dr.'s available 24/7 to keep an eye on them during their workouts. Unless you can afford to hire a medic to stay with you during your workouts, it would be crazy to go the length of time and intensity that they do. I hope most people understand that. I find the program to be very motivational. With hard work and healthy eating, we can all get to our goal weights.

Spark doesn't approve of this show and I can see why. The thought of losing over 100 pounds in 7 weeks is ridiculous. Sooner or later, some idiot at home is going to think that, even though he weighs, 500 pounds, you can take on aprogram like this in your living room. Then they will die and the family will sue the show for
showing unrealistic expectations. I prefer to watch it just for the motivation. But I would never attempt this program at home.

I was really happy that Michael won, I would have been happy about any of them. He lost 1/2 his weight. I saw him on Today and Regis & Kelly today and he still wants to lose more and is going to work with obesity in children. I noticed at least a great friendship between Michael and Ashley. Maybe there is more. He seems into her. They all looked great, I was surprised Shay didn't lose more weight. At $1k per pound I would have done anything to lose it all, but they are still going to give her more. I was surprised the brown twins hadn't done better...I loved the format of the final show, great fun! Can't wait for next season. I will be checking out Jillian's new show, but doesn't look that great to me....but I will see. She is coming back to the BL in the fall, right? We can all be our own BIGGEST LOSERS!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I power watch it this morning I really don't need to see their struggles again.. they show them every week it seems.. I was happy that Darius stayed and that Michael won... I do to I think Ashley and Michael have a friendship that will last for a long time.. maybe even a love connection. It was a great show and what about Shay!!! WOW amazing and she is still going. She looked so beautiful. So did Darius's mom absoulutly beautiful.. I wish I could carry off a hair do like that. I hope Jillians new show its a good one. But I'll miss her on the biggest looser.. it wasn't the same when she left last time .. but so great when she came back and made the black team.. love the drama... LOL

They all looked so great last night! Daris' mom was so cute! And I was thrilled that Daris has found a girlfriend.

Mike and Ashley looked AMAZING. I was shocked with how much weight they'd lost. Ashley's under 200!

I love BL, b/c it shows you that anything's possible, if you're willing to do the work.

I agree about Koli as well, sadly of all the contestants I think he is the most likely to put the weight back on he seemed in it for the money not for the health. Michael looked great and you could tell he was happy. Anyone else think there is a spark between him and Ashley???

I totally agree, Michelle. I haven't cared for him since he did that as well. I wonder how Sam felt when he saw that episode. I think that he has been playing the game from the beginning. Now, I did like how he was at the 5K run, but I have some doubts about that too. It could have all been for show. He has just been too cocky. I really want Michael, Ashley, or Daris to win.

Ok--I have to throw this out there---does anyone else remember how Koli sort of planted the seed in Ashley's mind that Stephanie was playing games? Now that we all know that Stephanie and Sam are a couple, does it strike anyone else as strange that he was making such an effort to get rid of Stephanie? I mean, I realize that Sam was below the yellow line with Stephanie in the end, but Koli had planted those ideas long before they weighed in.
Anyway, I don't care for Koli anymore because of that and because of the attitudes I saw him have with more than one of the other contestants. Yes, he and Sam had a great relationship, but no one else measured up in his eyes. I just think he is cocky and proud and a bit unforgiving.

I like all 4 that are left. Of course I want Koli to win since he lives in my town. After him I would like to see Ashley win. She has been steady, really enjoying the process and I'm always for the girls!! :)
It was disturbing to see Daris pig out at night. He has not taken care of his eating problems and he will put it right back on, and fast, if he doesn't get to the bottom of that!! What a transformation! He is cute and handsome at the same time! He sure won't have any trouble finding a girlfriend, especially if he wins the $$ which is sad but true...
I think Koli was smart to get out of town, for that reason!! He is after the $$ now and good for him! He has done great!
It was thrilling to see Mike go under 300 and he is really cute. Even has dimples! Wonderful to see the joy on all their faces.
It seems they started up a new show about a month after the end last year...hope they do it again. I want this BL year around! It is so encouraging and fun to watch the process.

I'm really pushing for Darius... but he did really hurt himself at the weigh-in by not just standing up and stating the truth. But at the same time, it's not like that's really an easy thing to do! We've all been there!!

I'm excited to see what will happen next week!

I record and watch in the morning which always make me run to work and get there right on time... but I love the show. I have felt for awhile now that there is a connection with Mike and Ashley. I think they make a cute couple. I'm surprised at what happened with Darius he is like a little brother and I want him to succeed and turn this lifestyle around. He has so much living to do and I know the girls are all just too shy to let him know how they feel. I'm sure by the time the show airs he will find a special someone.
I know exactly why Koli left. He needed to be with Sam and the connection between these cousins is very strong. Not only is he going home but he will be home without Sam. Sam has moved to California and this is going to be a very hard time for him.
I love and admire both of them so I'm not voting I want them both to win just as I wish both Mike and Ashley could win this is the hard part of the show. We watch them succeed and struggle we see their giant smiles and their tears. I get very close to them all and am so happy when some leave.
I noticed that some of the past contestants put on some of their weight. I need this to be a lesson to me. Maintenance is going to be just as much a learning process as taking this weight off is. Maybe we need shows that cover this part of the journey. We watch people loose now we need to watch people maintain their weight and show us what it takes to do this.. LOL just an idea..

I voted my 10 times for Daris. I really want him to be in the final 3. I felt so bad for him last night. I can so relate to him. I really want him to succeed.

I was so happy for Michael and Ashley. I would love for either one of them to win. They have both come so far and are really doing such a great job. I cried when I saw that Michael had made it done to 299 lbs. He has been my favorite from the beginning. I hope his sister will take his advice and learn from him so she can lose weight. Hopefully, she will get the opportunity to go to the Biggest Loser's camp in Utah like Mikey's brother from last season.

I can't wait until next week's finale. I love seeing everyone's transformations.

This was a heartbreaking show for me because, like so many others have said, I related to much to what Daris was experiencing. It's clear that although he was able to control his food and do the work while he was on the ranch, he has an underlying addiction to food and was eating emotionally when he got home. I've been there myself and I just ached for him. The fact that he was unable to be completely truthful when he was confronted by Jillian and Bob, only confirmed for me the fact that he was dealing with an addiction.

But I like Daris. And I voted for him. It's not that I dislike Koli. At the stage, I grieve anybody who has to go. I did think that Koli's focusing on the win and not trying to deal with how things were at home for a more extended period of time might come back to bite him after the show's over. I hope I'm wrong. Most people who have done this will tell you maintenance is far harder than losing the weight, and that's surely been true in my case!

As for Michael and Ashley ~ I'm ecstatic for them both, and I'll be happy whoever wins!

I felt like crying when they showed Daris going into the kitchen at night and binging. I have been there so many times...eating right and exercising during the day, and then blowing it all at night. I want Daris for the final three.

I just hope this gain was a wake up call for him and he will be able to get it under control.

It is obvious that Daris has a food addiction, I felt so bad for him last night when he tried to cover it up and say it was training for the marathon.

I like Daris but I hope Koli gets to be the third finalist. I just remember how caring he was with others on the show - he may be quiet but he has a big heart and I believe once the show is over he is going to pay it forward. Look at the marathon in Texas. He was more worried about others than himself. It does worry me though that he left his home to focus on working out - it was kinda like running away, but I think he has a lot going on at home with issues we don't know about and I could see him not wanting to deal with that right now with the finale looming.

Now as the winner I do want either Mike or Ashley to win. I see myself in Ashley a lot but I just really like Mike! It was amazing when he reached 299 last night.

I told my husband last night that I don't think America would vote for Koli because it was almost like he was cheating and this show isnt about who wins at the end, it's about making life changes. He was only focusing on winning which isnt very motivating to people that watch the show.

I'm with you Change4Freedom - So many of us can relate to Daris' struggles. I hope he gets the vote.

I don't think it was fair that Koli was able to 'leave' his home environment. What did he learn doing that? I can just imagine how hard it would be to live w/college guys but what is he going to do when the show is over?

I just watched the last show and I feel so bad for Daris. He is just adorable and he represents so many of us (taking some steps back). I hope he makes it to the end. What a great story if he could get back on the show, turn it around and get back on track.

Ok, just watched the makeover show! Wow, they all looked great! I've thought Sam was attractive from the beginning -- but Oh. My. Goodness! Ouch! And Michael looks so good and Darius is going to be such a charmer with the girls now!

I'd love to see Ashley win - but I really like all of the final 4.

And Stephanie? THAT IS ONE LUCKY GIRL! I'm so jealous! LOL!

I'm catching up on the show On Demand - and just saw the one where they went to Texas and did the 5K. Wouldn't that be great to walk a 5K with all of them? I know I'd go!

I got a phone call right when Eric came on (the former winner who had regained much of his weight), and I didn't get to hear what he said. As someone who has also said "never again" and still managed to do the same thing, I'm interested in what he had to say.

I was glad that Summer was the one to go home. I think everyone that's left is capable of winning. My hope is that Ashley or Daris Win. I loved all the great advice they received from the former contestants. I know that fear and it can be very overwhelming.

Yep, Koli was in some weird place. Everybody looked at him like he was from Mars when he spouted off, but I think he is a good guy.
Glad Sunshine went home. She has cried in EVERY episode, but glad she is finishing at home.
Ashley should have a talk to Mike about focusing on the good he has done so far. She lost a whole woman and has a whole lot to go but she is rejoicing in what she has accomplished and enjoying the new her. That is what Mike needs to do. He needs to take a walk and focus on how much better his body feels with over 200 lbs off of it!!

I agree, I didn't like Koli's attitude. I know he misses Sam but come on...Sam didn't need to be on the ranch anymore. Yes it would have been smart game play for the others to keep him there but I love it that they are not too focused on the game. They are more supportive of each other.

I was sorry Sunshine had to go home but she looks great.

I loved the challenge too! I remember back in 2006, after losing 50 lbs, I was starting to feel depressed and not thinking it was much. I was at Walmart with my stepson and he pointed out a 50 lbs bag of dog food and he picked it up and told me to carry it. I was SHOCKED by how heavy it was! I couldn't carry it!

I really enjoyed the challenge. That has to be quite an eye opener to lug your original weight around and then see how it feels when you unload a chunk at a time, as they did weekly. What a lesson to remember. Like they all felt...NEVER AGAIN!! When I feel like losing 10 pounds or even 5 is nothing compared to what I need to lose, I think of a 5 or 10 pound sack of potatoes and what that feels like carrying around all day. So the little goals really matter and, of course, add up!! Mike needs to remember that.....great show.....

I was so upset when that happened with Michael and Bob!! Koli could have 'manned up' a little more in the Gym--I mean seriously, you're upset your Cousin is gone--we get it! I think at the weigh-in it really showed when he said he really wished Sam was there.

I really liked Sunshine and I think she looks amazing!! I can't wait to see everyone come back!!

Wow, that was a great show last night. I cried when Michael had the episode with Bob. I felt so bad for him, but he has really come a long way and looks great. I'm so happy that Michael, Daris, and Ashley made it to the final four. I did not like Koli and his attitude last night. I thought he was very arrogant. I really don't care for arrogant people at all.

I like the before and after pictures. They all have done such a great job and look fantastic. I'm sure they are all going to look even better at the finale, which is in two weeks.

I can't believe they sent Sam home, he is not a threat at all. In fact he only lost 2 more pounds at home and doesn't need to lose any more. But I am glad Mike is still there, he needs to lose so much more...he really is turning out to be handsome. I hate all the facial hair, I like men with hair on their heads and not on their faces. Seems like cute guys try to make themselves as ugly as possible sometimes. They all look fabulous, Darius, WOW!

I loved the makeovers. Everyone looked great. I really loved the way they did the guys, especially Daris and Michael. What a difference for those two!

I figured it was Sam's turn to go home since he is already at goal weight. He really looks great. I was so happy for him and Stephanie. Loved their apartment.

My favorites are Michael, Daris, and Ashley. I hope they are in the final four and that one of them wins.

What a GREAT ending! Stephanie and Sam make a cute couple. It made Sam's leaving (even though I knew it had to able eventually) easier to bear. With O'Neal leaving last week and Sam this week, there are no more "couples" left. Koli really stepped up, didn't he? And so did Daris after Bob tore into him about giving up on the challenge. There's something about Daris I like - maybe the fact that he's a little soft-spoken and doesn't go out of his way to attract attention to himself. He just keeps plugging along, getting good results. I wouldn't be surprised to see him fly right in under the radar to win this thing.

I think this season has been the classiest since the show first started. I think (all but one) were truly there to lose weight and help the others lose weight and the "gaming" never came into it.

Now it's going to get harder to watch because I want all of them at the end.

I think there are more hook ups on the Biggest Loser than on any of the dating reality shows! That was awesome! I was so happy to see them together. They make a great couple!! I LOVED the makeovers! So many of them are really good looking. Darius is a little cutie boy! I'm good with any of them winning at this point too.

I thought the makeovers were great. I loved Daris' new look...I could hardly tell it was him at first. I am fine with any of the ones left winning also, but I really do like Daris.

I loved the show too. Each week I change my mind about who I want to win. I guess in the end it will truly be 'The Biggest Loser' of the bunch. I'm excited to makeovers and of course the finale. I wonder who from home will win???...HMMMMMM - any ideas??

I like ONeal and Sunshine but I wish ONeal could have stayed. He really needs it. He was a bigger threat to the game, tho, so they voted him off. Also they were honoring his wish to go. Sunshine said she felt selfish and she was. She is 187 now, she can finish at home. She should have stood up to her Dad and insisted he stay, but she doesn't have it in her to do that. And I am sick of seeing her cry every week over something.
I like all that are there, too, but of course, I want Sam or Koli to win since as I have said, they are from my town here. Koli should have a big weight loss next week because he only lost 1 pound. Wonder if he did that on purpose....it's getting exciting!!

I loved last night's show. I'm like Sherry I cried a lot during the show. I was so happy for those people in Texas doing the 5K. Wow, what an inspiration!

I was glad to see O'Neal live. He's the only one that I don't care for. That really is funny about the postal worker thing, Sherry.

I can't wait to see next week with the makeovers and what they do to Daris and Michael.

I really want either Daris, Michael, or Ashley to win. I didn't like Ashley at first, but her whole demeanor has changed since the beginning.

The ONLY good thing about "Lost" not being on last night was getting to see the second half of "Biggest Loser"!

YAY to Daris making it to next week's makeover show! I can't wait to see what they do with his hair AND Michael's.

I would be happy for any of these people to win. They've been a great group to watch. And I'm jazzed to see Jillian's new show! The preview looked great.

I agree with you Sherry - I think I cried during the whole show! O'Neal looked so good and he really is an inspiration to me being 51 and having knee problems. I love Sam and Koli and was very proud of Koli of how he was so thoughtful to others in the 5K challenge, they really have big hearts.

I was laughing my butt off when Mike was trying to catch the calves and he was talking baby talk to them! I like everyone...I would be happy to see anyone of them win. I must say though that I never really warmed up to Ashley until last nights episode. I found myself rooting for her at weigh-in and I am glad that she stayed.

I think Sam might be the next to go. He is at the point where its going to be harder and harder to lose the weight and he had a big number last night. I cannot wait until next week for the makeovers!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!

Me too Pixie. He's a good dad. Sam and Koli made me cry at the stuff they did tonight. Tonight's show was a tearjerker for me. Every time I turned around the waterworks were pouring. I had to laugh, though, at the comments made on here about O'niel's temper and going off on someone, when they said he worked for the U.S. Postal System, hahahaha.

When Sunshine and Oneal fell below the line, I knew that Oneal would want to sacrifice himself for her. He looks like he's doing good at home.

Go Darius! Or Asheley!

I think Victoria was a smart choice too. I really like Sunshine and hope she is in the final four. Victoria's mom looked great. I think that Koli's words may have sparked a fire in Victoria, she seemed pretty determined when she got home. I hope she does well. I really like Koli and Sam. I want to see Sam in the final four but I'm not sure about it because he's so close to being done. He looks awesome. I wonder if he did get sent home would he win the at home money, that would be great, he's worked so hard and been such an inspiration to everyone on the ranch.

Koli was smart in sending Victoria home. She had more to lose than Sunshine and could be a bigger threat. Glad my hometown boys are still in it!! Her Mom looked great when she got home and Victoria has lost 26 pounds since leaving the Ranch, so she really was determined, even tho her manner didn't seem like it. She is just real sweet and laid back, I think. Glad the big boys and pink are staying, they have soooo much more to lose!! Great show as usual, great challenges!

We don't want to have to say Being cremated is my last hope for a hot, smokin body!

If you are tired of starting over, STOP GIVING UP!

FOCUS on the path---one decision at a time.
