We're 3 shy of 500 posts on the other thread - time to start a new one!! No doubt the finale will generate a lot more posts between now and next week!

I hope Michelle takes it all, and you're right! She has shown a great amount of class whereas Icky has been nothing but a (b)witch the entire time and Hubba was fast on her heels. BOTH of them behaved badly and turned off a lot of people this season. I pray Michelle loses more, even if she wins by a mere 1%, it would be AWESOME!!!!

Off off to the NBC site to vote for ED! LOL!

Yes, I've already voted for Ed 5 times online. I see Heba as the greater threat too, so putting him in the final 3 is better for Michelle.

I will go crazy if Vicky wins. Ack.

I REEEEEALY hope Ed pimping votes for Heba is not part of the gameplay.....but I bet it is.

Statistically, Ed in the final 3 benefits Michelle more than if Heba was in.

I want Michelle to win and one of the Amy's to take the 100K prize. I really liked Amy(the daughter) and she is my first choice (man still kicking her for not booting Vicki) but wouldnt it be a nice burr in Vicki's butt if Phil/Amy won and Vicki got NADA

Oh it totally was. He sandbagged in the hopes that Michelle fell below with him.

Couples again, unfortunately. I fear we will have more drama llamas. I think the next season should be all single people with no connection whatsoever. Let's see more Matt & Suzy type interaction, less evil alliances.

On Yahoo there was a survey about who should win this season:

PRIMETIME ASKS!

Who should win "The Biggest Loser"?

Ed 3%
Heba 10%
Vicky 3%
Michelle 85%

Who is the 3% voting for Vicky? In what way does she deserve to win anything but Miss Un-Congeniality!

Other miserable people like her who just show up to throw the vote? They are the cynists in life on all facets.

I did some calculations. Assuming my math is correct, if Michelle loses another 30 lbs by the finale (absolutely do-able IMO), in order to beat her, Vicki would have to lose 36 lbs at home, Heba 50 lbs, and Ed 70 lbs. So, IMO, Vicki is the only real threat to Michelle as long as Michelle keeps with the program. Even with winning the BL meal Plan, how likely is it that Heba or Ed would pull those big numbers at home this late in the game???

They get 4 months at home before the finale, right?

That means to lose over 50 lbs, Heba needs to lose over 3.125 pounds a week. I hate to say it, but it is possible. Healthy, probably not. But possible, yes. Also we need to account for dehydration at the finale. They will purposely dehydrate themselves to lose the excess water weight.

Someone correct me on how long they have at home and I will break out the spreadsheet with the stats.

Thanks for posting this.

Go Ed!!!

Ed totally gamed his weigh in. Perhaps if he had been honest he might have pushed Heba and Vicky to the bottom, but that didn't happen.

For sure they wanted to split up to increase their chances of winning both the at home and biggest loser prize.

I too am disappointed that we are going the couple route again. Hope they, NBC and the producers, mix it up better to prevent this kind of audience polarizing with Vicky and entourage. However, it sure did create a lot of buzz for the show.

Didn't someone post that Kim will be back too so we will have 3 trainers?

Have always loved Bob and still do except for him promoting blue forever to a fault. Hope he changes a bit as a result of seeing himself this season.

Always liked Jillian but didn't love her. She has changed my opinion this year too. Would love to have the opportunity to spend 3 months on the ranch even if I had to figure out how to pay for it.

haha...but seriously, tell me about it. What was NBC thinking when they chose her to be on this show??? Let's take it in a new direction. People don't want to be inspired anymore, oh no, they want to watch tv to find someone to hate!!

Geez.

Sure, it's possible, but I just don't think she'll do it.
