I'm also still thinkhing about the show. I'm not satisfied with the Finale. I want another Finale, six months down the road, and then another Finale, 12 months out. In fact, I think they need another show, called "The Biggest Maintainer," and I want NBC's cameras to follow around these people while they're going about their daily routines, at work & with their families & while socializing. I think I might even learn more from that than from the gym sessions with Bob & Jillian interspersed with Jennie-O, Subway & Extra Sugarfree Gum product placement.
I admired what Tracy and Rebecca had accomplished as far as their musculature and upper bodies. It's a relief to me that they still have slight batwings & some skin sag in addition to their muscles. That tells me I'm not a freak. I'm not the only one who can flex & show off my guns but also deal with a droop in the lower part of my arm that no amount of tricep exercises seems to tighten up. Also, I related extremely well to the look of Amanda's stomach & the overhang above her navel. I want to know what's going to happen with that.
As for the guys, I turn all superficial when I look at them, and think about their physical attractiveness. Danny suddenly acquired an extremely handsome, turn-to-look-at-him face, long & chiseled, with cheekbones, like a matinee idol. His emotionality was also appealing to me. I wish him well & I was glad he won.
For some reason, Rudy just never did it for me. (Just not into strong, silent bears.) But he also did a fine job. His demanding job sounds similar to mine, and I work in CT, where he lives, so I really feel like I want to know what his fate is. I'd follow him in my hypothetical Biggest Maintainer show.
None of the women really appealed to me this season the way Tara did last season. That's funny because, in the beginning, I did not care for her. But as each episode passed, she grew on me until she became a heroine to me. I was hoping Rebecca would turn into another Tara, but she never did. I found Abby incredibly impelling, and lovable, incredibly personable, but her tragedy set her apart a little, and she wasn't into competition like Tara -- Abby was just there to lose weight & be healthy & regain her equilibrium, and in fact, stepped back a few times when she could have competed. A different personality entirely.
I'm convinced that Tracey is going to keep being gung-ho about this. I see her becoming some kind of female bodybuilder. She already looked as though she might be following the lifestyle.
