I'm worried that Ana's team is going to be eliminated super quick. I believe age really helps with weightloss, and yes, I know you can lose at 50, 60, 70, but these folks definitely have a disadvantage competing against 20 year olds...
I agree.

On the other hand, I actually liked that the older contestants are encouraged to fight for their spots! I got fairly annoyed last season how all the parents felt the need to fall on their swords for their kids (when if anything they needed to be there more than their kids because it IS harder to lose as you get older!). I just wished Bob would've been their trainer because I think they really need that edge.

Ana... I actually don't think she's a bad trainer at all. Shoot, I would LOVE to lose 4lbs/week and that was the least one of her contestants lost. Clearly she's doing something right. She also has the toughest group with most likely the greatest number of health problems. At this point she's also somewhat restricted with what they physically can do. It shows her doing water aerobics and that might be a really great idea, especially for the lady with the knee problems.

Ironically, Bob probably has the easiest group to work with and he's the most experienced trainer there (when it comes to the Biggest Loser setting). I think they were spot on when they said they were young enough to compete physically but old enough to have wisdom. Also, many of them are parents and trust me there's a lot of extra drive there.

The twenty-year olds will certainly be giving them a run for their money but if they are anything like I was in my young 20's they might be very excited about losing weight but might not have as much maturity as the slightly older crowd. Obviously, I'm sure there are some who are there already! But it's just a guess at this point.
