I'm still rooting for Ashley to win and Stephanie to win the at home prize. They are my favorite. I'm really hoping that Sam proposes to Stephanie at the finale. hehe. I love proposals.

I think Koli needs to start calorie counting or something and not rely so much on the 8 hours of exercise a day. I think he'll gain a bunch of weight back.

I haven't read the whole thread so someone may have already mentioned this, but I was surprised by Bob and Jillian's reaction when Daris blamed his weight gain on marathon training. Yes, you run to lose weight, but when you're focused on training for a race like that you have to eat more and it can mess things up a bit. He probably tried to keep his calories low even though he was running a kazillion miles a day, so he was crazy hungry and it led to binges. When I had lost 100 pounds, I trained for a half marathon, and I couldn't lose any weight while training because the running made me so hungry all the time that it all evened out. I had to wait until after the race to lose my last 10 pounds. So Daris went about it all wrong, yes, but he was really focused on the marathon and his focus paid off in one way -- he got an amazing time!

I was incredibly impressed that they all finished, especially Michael with the extra weight he's still carrying.

I don't really care who wins, but I'm kind of hoping it'll be Ashley. Or Michael. I don't know!

Koli - 45.9%

Mike - 43.15%

Daris - 43.06%

Ashley - 43.04%


This is gonna be a close one! Mike and Ashley made up a lot of ground (no pun intended). I think they all have the potential to lose 50%, if not more, given the 6-week interval they had until the finale.

If Koli gets voted in, I think he may win because he's obsessed with winning. I can see another Helen in him.

If Daris is voted in, he can still eke out some more weight loss but it's going to be tough. But I'm not counting him out if he focuses on it (now that he doesn't have to think about a marathon).

Mike is in a great spot now. He's got 36 pounds to go to make it to 50%. He lost 23 in 4 weeks. He would basically have to duplicate plus half what he did in the month.

Ashley can't be counted out either. To get to 50%, she would have to be 187 (from 213), which is also to duplicate plus half her month.

Last season, we pretty much knew the horse race was between Danny & Rudy, neither Amanda nor Liz came close. But now...

Not that we ever get this follow up in a nugget form but my predictions for the future

Ashley maintains her weight loss. I think she has got the mind set and discovered joy. She'll have periods of struggle and may never be skinny, but she'll get it.

Koli regains a significant chunk without competition to motivate him.

Daris loves running. It will take him a while to figure out how to balance weight and running but those will be fluctuations in the 10-20 lb range at most and he will figure it out. Eventually he'll figure it out and go even lower in weight.

Mike will maintain most of his weight loss but not all. He will probably be overweight most of his life but will remain active and reasonably healthy. He will have periods of serious setbacks but will pick himself up and go again.

I kind of agree with you, ennay.

I hope Mike gets some good opportunities out of this--speaking engagements, appearances, a job even. I think it would be good for both his self-esteem and to keep him on a steady track. For somebody his size to do what he did...yeah, he did it in record time in an ideal environment but he still had to make himself start and go on with it. There's a huge focus on food in Italian culture/families (I know) but, hopefully, his family will support rather than sabotage.

BTW...forgot to mention...loved his telling the girls on the marathon "your hot male escorts have arrived!"

I'd say your predictions are right on the money, ennay. I can see that Daris is definitely all about the running now. That's what happened to me at some point (before I got pregnant and lost all my fitness!) I honestly didn't care as much about the number on the scale as I did about how many miles I could put in each week.

I realized this morning that I did not give Daris all 10 of my votes, but when I went to vote online, it gives me an error that I have my birth date has to be verified (no matter what I set it to). WTH?
But I guess it's too late anyway, did it close last week?
So he got only 4 of my votes - 3 online and I asked BF to send a text msg - I am on a pay-as-you-go cell so I can't do that.
Only one more day to finale.

I don't understand why the contestants go for that dehydrated thing for the finale - don't they weigh in ahead of time, just like for the WIs on the show? I can understand trying to cut weight for the WI itself (at least within the context of this being a contest with a lot of money at stake for what could be a minimal difference in weight). But surely they can drink something after that initial WI?? Or am I wrong, and when they get on the big scale on TV, that's the real WI?

I'm sure they weigh in behind the scenes. I think it was Michelle who when she won was sporting some hefty looking earrings. I am guessing they go into a serious body builder type cut diet for a few days before the weigh in. Combo of VERY low cal/VERY high protein and then some dehydration to boot. It takes awhile to recover a healthy look from that. You can only absorb so much fluid so fast. A glass of water is not going to restore the face. I would think a minimum of 12 -24 hours of rehydrating SLOWLY to resaturate the less critical organs.

I'm also very excited! I think this is Mike's title to win or lose.

As far as episodes go, I usually DVR them and watch them commercial free the next day--but I have a date with Biggest Loser tonight!




I am REALLY hoping for Ashley to join the PINK ranks and bring in a win to join Alli, and Helen! (Although Helen looked awful in the finale in her year--this year on her guest appearance she is looking MUCH better!)


Oh, and I REALLY want to see how Shay did!
