Glad that Bonnie is gone as well. I agree that it seemed like she never tried. How hard is it to pull yourself across a wet slide? I was also glad that she voted for all the teachers first.

I did feel bad for Becky since apparently she is a math teacher but can't do basic division. 3500/7=500 not 250.

Antone is pretty smart getting all but one question correct. Can someone explain the question and answer for the coffee question (there was something about not adding 4 tsp cream and sugar saving x amount of calories)

Sunny is not my favourite but I have to admit that she really was impressive in that water challenge.

not surprised about Anna leaving... she just seemed sorta dull on the show. I think Cara from last season was even more interesting to watch.
Dolvette is fine and he seems to know how to push people and have the personal talks with them.
I guess it's hard to find a pretty female trainer with a tomboyish side to them for the show.

I forgot to mention in my previous post that I was really impressed with how you could actually see how the contestants bodies have changed on this show. Sunny is looking really trim in the waist in that shirt, and the guys too.

Anna leaving the show?

Bob and dolvette are my two fav trainers of this season. Anna original team wasn't loosing much weight till they got to Bob and dolvette. She just aint a good trainer for people over weight. If they bring in another female trainer it should be someone who was obese and knows the struggles that the contestants go through.




I knew bonnie wouldn't last much longer.

My fav on this season is all of the original red team and Becky.

I agree they are all looking really good. They even have a sparkle in their eyes.

I'm happy for her. I think she looked great and so happy in her reveal at the end. I think that her contribution to the show was to remind people to not let fear dictate your life, that you don't have an "expiration date" and to do what you can do.

Could she lose the weight and do the challenges as well as the others? Of course not. But even if she had to walk instead of run, and she lost five pounds instead of ten, it all counted. Bonnie's transformation was mental more than on the scale, and that is so huge.

Not surprised about Anna. I think people were against her out of the gate, and she didn't help herself with her approach. Fine line between being tough and...rude? Lacking in tact? I don't know that malicious intent was involved, she just didn't say things in a way that people accepted them well.
I think that is even a finer line when English is not your native language.

I wonder if they will stick with two male trainers now or look for another female.

So glad Dolvette will be the trainer that is staying. Just didn't connect with Anna. Wow how about John last night? I understand that it is a game and Sonny is a big threat. (I think she lost just as much as Ramone and he is so much bigger than her.) But still, he really put a target on his back with that vote. I do believe one was always there but he just made it bigger.

Ramone looked gorgeous. He didn't even look like the same person. So happy for both of them. If anyone can win that marathon to get back on I believe it is his girlfriend. Can't remember her name.

I knew Ramone would be gorgeous, and I was waiting for him to cut his hair. He looked awesome, and I'm glad he and Jessica are so happy.

Bob surprised me a lot yesterday. First with being so open about his sister and also with his prediction that John will gain all of his weight back. That came out of his mouth, and I was like, !

John is totally in it to win the game, and I agree with Antone: actions speak louder than words. John tried to act all like, "I can't believe that the one person who it benefited me to have the disadvantage is actually under the line" or whatever crap he said. I was like, "That's why you gave it to her! You just said it at the beginning of the WI!" He absolutely wanted Sunny off the show, and that's why he then cast his vote for her.

I liked Ramone's attitude, but I had to agree with him getting voted off. Sunny had earned the right to stay and would have if she didn't have the disadvantage.

I'd have had more respect for John's move if he'd admitted it was a strategy and didn't play his "I'm so sorry I didn't mean for that to happen" game. If you're a game player just admit it...don't pull that BS "feel sorry for me" game.

It sucks to see Ramon go home I love seeing him on there and omg what a hottie after he cute his hair. Can't wait for make-over week.. Can't believe this season almost over already this season flew by fast.

As for Bob comment I thought he was talking about how it will be venny who will gain all the weight back but my bf was talking to me during that part so heard part of it.

Omg vinney can singggg!!!!...

As for John I ain't liked him this whole season his personality and needing to be in control dn't rub me the right way.

So who you think gonna win this season?

OK so I guess the part I missed was Bob predicting someone would gain weight back and Vinny singing. We lost power for only about 3 seconds but it took DirectTV 12 minutes to regain satellite and directory and start recording again.

I watch a few tv shows online too and I will also snarl at anyone who interrupts me and my tv time. My youngest son (who is 21 years old and fully capable of caring for himself at all times) knows never to bother me when I am watching Downton Abbey or Biggest Loser or he wil get his head chewed off.
