I really hate when they start the season by kicking someone off who thought they had made it to the ranch. I just think it is a evil thing to do.
But besides that I loved the episode. Dolvette looks better this season! So glad he is back.

I liked this one a lot. Interesting people this time. I liked the pink/blue girl, Emily, who was an Olympic weightlifter. And the other pink/red girl, I forget her name, who was the pro wrestler. I think they'll be competitors.

I missed teh last ten minutes, who went home?

I actually like how they've split the pairs, it's not like they are alone and wont get to see their partner every day but they are going to realise that this journey is about them, can't lean so much on some one else. I like that.

Darn it, my husband and I carpool and his truck broke down yesterday and put him 4 hours behind. I had to wait for him (we commute to far to go home and come back) and didn't get home until 11:00 pm. Sure hope my DVR recorded it.

I also liked how they split the teams...and how nobody was "super big" this season. Unless I'm mistaken (and I may be), nobody weighed more than 400 pounds. The numbers weren't shockingly huge (remember the 30+ pound first weeks last season?), but were respectable. Made for more evenly matched teams all around.

I liked the new contestants, I like the 2 trainer system, I liked that they split the teams up, like that they are more reasonable sizes this season

hated the way they sent a team home before they even started.

hated the over the top entrances the trainers made. Wtf was that?

I was really disturbed by all the puking and passing out though. How is that helpful in any way?

The puking...they play it up because of the drama. There is a physiological reason for it and it isnt as dangerous as it seems. If it is happening every workout it is a problem but it is a common body response to doing something not normally asked of the body. It's also a common response to an adrenaline surge. If you are severely out of shape it doesnt take that much to get there and add the uncomfortable nervousness of the situation its really to be expected. If you are really in shape it takes more which is why you dont see it as often later in the season even though they push them harder..

p.s. dont volunteer to be the finish line worker at a 5K with people who take it seriously. puke-o-rama. I know a sub-elite runner who pukes every single time.

BUT a 40 yard dash with no warmup? No wonder someone tore a hammy. Although usually it's quads on a dash. I used to tear mine every season on my first sprint to first base.

- - my one continues BL rant. -- do the contestants not ever WATCH this show? They always seem so shocked by the twists. And every season 2-3 players state "I thought they would go easy on us the first workout" Uh...why would you think that?


I wonder if they toned down the pre first weigh in buffet? Even with the smaller size the numbers were much lower than in past seasons

The new season started already?!? Dang! I'm still catching up on the last season online! lol Well, I've missed the first one, but it's ok. I find I don't really get to like the people until there's only about half of them left anyway.

I'll have to be sure to catch it from now on though, it really does help keep me motivated.

I know, right? It drives me crazy when there's a challenge and the prize is... dun-dun-dun... immunity and the contestants all react like it's a huge shock. Yes, that's a great thing if you are on the show, but it's not like it's an uncommon prize. They have done it a time or two. Sheesh.

I understand being excited, but I don't understand the big shock.

My favorite is always when they break up teams or switch trainers or something. It's SUCH a shock because they only do something like that oh....at LEAST once a season.

oh and what is up with Bob's hair?

I always think it's funny how shocked everyone is too. And on survivor how no one ever goes out in their back yard and practices making a fire before they get there lol

Also, since when is Bob Mr. Bad Man? Wasn't he always mostly the nice trainer? Now he's got this maniacal laugh and crazy eyes, doing all sorts of yelling and stuff. I guess he's decided to out-Jillian the memory of Jillian...

yeah, I felt bad for them too. 50 pounds (I think it was?), or 25 pounds each seems like alot for a month at home. Although if they pull it off I can see how it can motivate people at home to see those contestants do it at home and not on the show.
