OMG! Kinda scary! I've never watched a whole BL season--DH isn't "into" it. Bt hey, we have two tv's, and b/c I am signing up to do this challenge, I will be watching this one, for sure. I hope I can do this!

Thanks for posting that! Season 5 was the first time I watched BL and I became an instant fan.

I love Jillian - listen to her radio show every week.

Can't wait for season 6.

Feel the Fear? Do it anyway!

I love this!

LOL I'm tearing up too. OK, I'm blubbering. I've watched TBL since season 1. It's a great, motivating show for me. Yes, I realize I'm not losing at the rate of these courageous people..... but I'm doing it anyway . And, yes I do consider them courageous. I sure don't think I would be able to put myself under the scrutiny of millions of people watching me.

DH even started watching with me and he's also looking forward to another season!

Can't wait!

I'm totally rotted because I can't watch TBL on the 2 stations that we receive. I just might have to get cable or satellite so I can watch this. I'm signed up for this next challenge and can't wait for it to begin.

you know what really sucks. that Ali WAS the biggest loser and the first female; because she got "eliminated" so to me unlike everyon else who stayed "in the game" she didn't. (so yay on her for sticking to it at home... but stll, yeah know?)

I am SO excited though
but it cracks me up how "surprised" these ppl because there are CAMERAS all around....

Of the five or six seasons TBL has been on, I've seen a combined two or three episodes. I'm looking forward to this challenge though. It should be especially interesting since it involves families.

I am just so looking forward to this season! I am going through a very stressful time personally, so I need something like this challenge.

Am pretty new to BL but am wondering..was watching some rerun last night and it was a finale....and body fat lost was calculated into the equation. Is this fair to compare women to men using the same formula..I thought we naturally had a higher expected BF composition, and thus it was very difficult for women to reduce BF compared to men...or am I misunderstanding something!????
