I did not mind the losing team had to eat off the food truck the deal is to learn to make heathly choices and tacos can be ok but Richard did not need to get another one. he came up with using words to memorize those colors but his weight lost stank.

Dolvet seems much louder and more demanding than when he coached before, could be edited to make more contrast between him and Jen, just as there was an emphasized contrast between Bob and Jillian. Taking what's there and exaggerating.

I can see where some of the contestants are struggling. I would find the talk very stressful. I prefer Bob's personality; he is much gentler when dealing with roadblocks. I think being yelled at can decrease productivity, and I for one would shut down to it. It will be a tough ride for those on the receiving end, but it is possible to ride it out.

I just want to say (first) that I am a fan of this show. I find it very motivating. Sometimes the personal battles can be a little tough, but I love the transformation that happens.

It's wierd not seeing Allison there, but she wasn't really any reason I followed the show, so I'm okay with her absence. Not having Bob coaching is wierd. But he is in the gym, lurking from above.... Lol! I don't like Jessica. (I think that's her name. The problem child on Dolvet' s team?) I don't think she's putting in enough effort. But her day will come on the chopping block. Unless she keeps her momentum up from week 3. Maybe she's just a late bloomer. I felt that Hope's problem was related to her nutrition. But they never showed her sneaking it or over eating. I thought the food challenge for episode 2 would have affected the scale more. I also thought the food truck meal for the red team was going to cause Richard to tank. Speaking of Richard Hatch, I'm not a fan but his plotting and scheming does keep my interest on his survival. I do like his partner. I think she's going to be in the top 3. She has the right frame of mind. There's another girl who I like on Jens team. I don't remember her name, but she on the show with her mom. Oh oh oh! The demonstration in the morg, with the vats of fat?!!! DISGUSTING!!!! Wow! You can't take the memory away. Is it wierd that a lot of the people who are paired up to weigh in together, lose the same amount? Hummm.

I also felt it was just too much. I had to wonder exactly how much is she eating and how much is she working out. It simply isn't possible not to lose at least a pound a week on the ranch if you are following the program. I am not saying you are going to drop double digits every week, but we all know we can lose 1lb a week at home if we follow out at home programs, especially within the first month when it is all still a shock to our systems- It's not like they are close to goal weight and it is crazy hard to burn it off. I think she was relying on the success of the team to keep her safe again. I also think Colby will be much free-er to focus on his own success now that he only has himself to worry about. I like everybody so far, nothing personal just my observations.

I also thought the Colby/Hope thing was a little dramatic. I know being separated from somebody you love is hard but it's also part of the show. Somebody gets voted off and leaves.

I thought the Colby/Hope thing was just a little too dramatic for me. I actually said out loud "She's going home not dying you ninnies!!" ugh...fast forward.

Richard is a strategist...and I look forward to see what he can bring to the table. But don't you worry about his partner. She's sweet but she seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

Not a fan of Richard. I feel bad for his partner because in the end I think Richard will do what is best for him, and screw her over. I am all about Team Jen right now, I started bawling when Colby started crying when Hope left and he wouldn't let go of her. I can't stand to see a man cry. Wishing they didn't do 2 weeks in one but oh well, hope that was just a one time thing!

Richard is a game player. He never does something without a motive. He didn't really get another taco. He is eating very carefully. But we will not see it unless he wants us to. He is a great strategist. I expect him to be at the end. He has the willpower and the brains to do it.

I have to say, it is bothering me that they are having so much food being used for those that lose the challenge. It is already bad enough that the losing team lost their challenge, but it is even worse that they have to eat something besides. The whole point is learning not to eat when you are disappointed or upset. I think it is very odd, and would like to know why the producers are designing the show this way.

Same thing happened to me. Will try to watch the whole show next week. I think that was the night of the Alabama /Clemson game and we were just watching BL during commercials and halftime.

This week had me confused. By the time I turned on the TV at 9:30 on Monday they were already doing weigh ins and the show was 2 hours long. Then some more came on after the weigh ins and then another weigh in came on. I was surprised that Whitney hadn't lost any weight. The part about the food truck and how Richard went back for another taco made me cringe a bit.

I am so glad that I have the DVR set to record the show. The show makes me wanna go to the gym but I have to wait until the gym opens before I can go.
