When they first announced the 50 lbs I thought it wouldn't be AS big a deal as it sounds because I had assumed the normal amount of pre first weigh in buffet, but since the other contestants had about half the normal first week weigh in, now I do think it will be seriously hard.

And yes. I hate that too.

Another here who HATES that they kicked off one team right off the bat. It seems really rare that anyone ever makes it back on the ranch after those things (even when they DO lose a lot of weight!) and on top of that they never are able to catch up to the contestants in terms of weight loss. Seriously, WHY do they need to do that, ugh! And 50lbs is freaking A LOT. That's 25lbs each for a month. I can't even imagine that at my highest weight!!!

As for the partners splitting up. I like that also. There have definitely been partners who lean a little too heavily on each other and I have to wonder how they'll do once they are back on their own and life gets in the way. Besides it's not like they'll never see each other again on the ranch..

It was also nice to see "smaller" contestants simply because I'm sure they can get a lot out of being there too. I have a feeling too we're going to see a female win this season again. The two strangers really seem like they'll be able to push hard and you do have a number of women there who are 300lbs+ so they do have a lot to lose too. None of the guys really stuck out as super competitive but then again it was just the first show.

Yay to another season! Oh, and congrats to Dolvett for finally beating bob!!!! It looks like the teams are much better matched than in pretty much ALL the previous seasons so it looks like it will be nice.

It is totally do-able. Back when I was on Deal-A-Meal, I lost 27 pounds in my first month and for exercise I was doing one Richard Simmons workout tape everyday while eating 1800 calories on top of my normal daily life of raising two sons.

I might have to restart that again.

Man i LOOOOOVE Dolvett body now, he improves himself as well and look so much better!.

Is not the first time they send a team home to give them a chance to get into the ranch, so i don't see why people get angry at it. As i see it in the same way that i sometimes see the whole show and contestants; Why do you have to enter a show to take control of yourself? ... i know, that is not the same to be away and just think about diet and excersice, but all the people in this and other boards do it at home, slower but steady, it can be done and sending a couple home, and if they can actually lose the amout of pounds, is a huge inspiration to the thousands that can not get into the ranch.

I don't get angry, i see it as more realistic inspiration to the people that dont hace the chance to be in the ranch. The only thing i would love to watch, is how they - at home - do it. 10 minutes of the show dedicated to them could be more inspirational.

Yes. I would love if each week they did a blurb on the at home contestants. Just a peek. Of course they would skew it for drama so if you saw them working hard then you would know they lost like 49 lbs and missed or if all you saw was them struggling then they would lose 75.

I would love that too. However, I HATE how predictable biggest loser is at times. You can almost always tell from the order that you hear comments or who they are focusing on all week who is going home, ugh!

I don't want to see Jillian back. She's left twice now to push her own stuff and she is obviously more interested in that. Don't bite the hand that feeds you ya' know

Hey guys! I don't think I have posted on here before but I am a big biggest loser fan!

Love that Dolvete and Bob are the trainers. I miss Jillian. It would be nice to see her back, but she might have other things to do, so we shall see.

I LOVE the theme of this season! I feel like I have definitely been an "excuses" girl from time to time and this seson, I am taking it to heart!

NO EXCUSES! Go big or go home!
