I do not want melissa to win anything .. as for the current group ... they are all great .. Michael started as a player but was smart enough to back off .. he might win since he still has lots of weight to go .. At this point the last 4 will be the ones that can keep themselves above the yellow line ... Sam and Daris have little to go ... can they stay in it? Time will tell ... be cool if the last few made a pack to split the money .. so they would all win ...

I don't really have any absolute favorite this season. It's such a great group, I'd be happy if any of them won. Now from the at home group for the $100,000...that's a different story. I bet Melissa is gunning for that prize and I'd be happy if anyone EXCEPT her won.

Thought the 5k was really awesome last night. Loved how that involved so many people and perhaps their lives will now change for good as well.

Not really surprised that Koli is playing it a bit, but in the end, I don't think he or Sam will win. I'd like it to be Daris or Sunshine. Mike is doing really well, but he's got so far to go yet that I'm not sure it will be him.

In seasons past, I've had someone I absolutely did not want to win, but I can say that this time. I truly would not be upset if any of the current players won, but I still have my favorites.

The last couple of weeks I have been disappointed with Koli. He's the last person I would expect to play the game . . . but that could be creative editing. I do think Daris is a sweetie, and I would love to see him win.

I have to say, Koli is proving to be a big game player! Not that I don't like him, but when you have immunity and lose 1 pound, you are playing the water card. Then 2 week weight loss shows up all at once next week.

I am still rooting for Daris! Although, Mike has impressed me alot with his compassion and sense of humor. He is going to be one good looking man soon!

I have been a Biggest Loser fan since day one, and this season has amazed me. I love that most of the players have actually been there to change their lives, not to play a game. I don't want this season to ever end!
I love the players so much I can't even decide who I want to win.

I calculated the percentages on the remaining people and Daris has the highest total percentage of weight loss thus far. Just FYI.

If the previews for tonight indicate "elimination makes one feel lonely" - my guess is that one of the teams of Sunshine / O'Neal or Sam / Koli are broken up - just a guess though.

I found this on the Facebook page about tomorrow's show.
It’s an exciting week for the remaining seven contestants as they head to Dallas to inspire Texans to get healthy and join them as they run a 5K at the Cotton Bowl. Then it's off to a rodeo for a wild challenge involving wrangling calves that will grant immunity to the lucky winner at this week's weigh-in. In addition,... with only seven contestants left, it becomes clearer than ever who is willing to do whatever it takes to be in the final four. Also, season eight fan favorite Abby Rike makes a special appearance this week and invites Jillian to speak at her old high school. Later, back at the ranch, elimination leaves one player feeling very much alone.

I can't wait to see the calf wrangling! That should be really interesting!
Someone on another thread said that according to their DVR infor for next week, May 4th, that will be the makeover show. I've been looking forward to that one for quite a while now. Hope Daris and Michael both make it.

I was at the Biggest Loser resort at Fitness Ridge in Utah in December, the week before Christmas. Because Max was not old enough to be on the show, they sent him there for the previous summer. During his stay there he lost over 100 pounds, but I could not find anything recent online. Let me know if you find something.

I'll tell you who else I can't wait to see at finale - is the twin brothers (James & John) who got voted off early on. So hoping those two have done well - seemed like great guys but had a lot to lose. I wish they could have stayed on WAY PAST husband and wife team, Lance & Melissa. Melissa got on my LAST nerve.

Just my two cent's worth :)

Speaking of two season to get it off.....

Daniel was on for two, and he looked great!

I was hoping they would bring Max on (Season 7-Mike's little brother) I know they have to wait until he is 18 but I am pretty sure that is soon.

LOL@Soft-Val67 not ready to be without Sam. I hear ya there - he is a looker. But as I may have said before - take a HARD look at Michael. Can you just imagine when that man is at his goal weight with that face and eyes. I think he will blow everyone's socks off.

And not that I particularly think Daris is good looking, but with ALL his weight off and a "new" hairstyle I hope after the makeover - he will be cute. Seems like a nice guy and so happy for him and his new-found self.

Let's face it - the finale to me is always jaw-dropping anyway to see how far they all come.

The girl that blows my mind is Shay - she was on last season -- started in the 400's or higher and they kept her in the challenge this year from home - from what I've seen of her now and then - wow has she changed and I *think* she will be at the finale. Ashley "could" be one of those who technically needs another season to really get all the weight off but she's doing it :)

THey are all doing well. It is very hard for them now, since some of them have gotten to a reasonable weight, like Sam, Koli and Sunshine. Ashley and Mike still have so much to lose.

I am 5'7" and 173.
I have been wearing size 12's for awhile now and am real close to fitting into the 10's and alot of my tops are now mediums.
I have a long torso, I always think that weighs more than long legs do, don't you?
Also, whenever I gain weight I tend to gain it fairly evenly all over. I have never been an apple shape.

I like all of the ones left on the ranch also, and felt bad that Victoria didn't get to have more time; she seemed like a sweetie.
I hope Ashley and Michael are both in the final 4 as they sure need to stay as long as possible.
Isn't it fun to see how much more they enjoy life as they get healthier and more fit?

Faith, Hope & Love...
... but the greatest of these is love.
Love never fails.

Jillian was on Early Show yesterday morning (Saturday) - I think it was Early Show if not that it was Saturday Today show but anyway they asked who she was MOST impressed with this season and her answer: Ashley. She said when she came she fell off the treadmill - and she said - look at her now. I think Ashley will be soooo pretty when she gets to goal; I mean she is beautiful now ... so I can only imagine.

Hello everyone!

I don't post here often but love reading what everyone thinks.

I have to agree with everyone that typically you would not think a 240 lb. person can wear a size 12. I guess on the flip side when they showed her at home after a time had passed, she didn't look 240 lbs. to me either though - looked smaller. For some reason I didn't think they were "supposed" to weigh at home? ... so they were surprised at the finale ... but I may be dead wrong about that. Not sure how you could keep someone at home from weighing in anyway.

I am down to around 159-160 and I can wear "some" 12's but mostly 14's now. From a size 24 a year and a half ago, I'm thrilled, but my goal is to be around 10/12. We'll see - plugging away.

It seems like O'Neal is a favorite of most of the other contestants, which tells me he must be a real sweetheart on the ranch. If you go by appearances now, I think Sunshine, Daris and Sam are WELL on their way and would continue to do just fine at home - more than some of the others.

I can't wait to see Michael and Daris AFTER the makeover and after they've lost all their weight and they change their HAIR. I truly think Michael will be one GOOD looking man - he has beautiful eyes. Of course, Sam is not hard to look at either :) When is the makeover show I wonder?

Usually the finale is in May I think.

No way a 5'9" 240 person wears a size 12. I'm 5'10" 245 and I wear a size 18 or 20 depending on cut. I wore a size 10 when I weighed 140 back in high school. Just sayin'!
