I did a Biggest Loser video work out yesterday with Tara as the trainer, and she wasn't very good. I know that filming a video is a little bit different and she might be able to do better in person, but I am not sure that just having gone through the weight loss/Biggest Loser process makes you a good trainer.
As for the elimination, they are still at the "who NEEDS to be here more?" phase. I think that the players to really bond with each other and it's hard for them to send someone home - it's not that they don't want to win, but they really do look more at the bigger picture and not just the competition aspect.
Restart 1/6/13 - GOAL (for now) back to prior low
