Can't wait for the Biggest Loser season 15 to start October 8th, save the date! Reuben from "American Idol" is on it too...

The coaches also had more say in the choosing of the contestants and on who goes home, they can give them a second chance...

I also can't wait! I know the rate of loss on this show is completely unrealistic but I still find it so motivating!

Thx Ilene, wasn't sure exactly when it would be starting. Sounds like it should be a good season.

This is my first season of watching the show without sitting in front of the tv stuffing a pint of ice cream in my face and telling myself I wish I could be like them. My journey might not be exactly the same as theirs but I can do it!

I watched it....I'm so glad Jillian saved the guy who fell below the red line. I'm also glad that the guy with the beard didn't end up with Jillian!

I really liked the new format, the trainers choosing the contestants, the trainers having a choice of letting go of the person below the yellow line...

I think there will be a lot less whiners this year too YAY for that...

My favourite is the Olympic lifter and Reuben what a cutee...

David did amazing losing 38lbs. He is a very sad story, has a lot of demons to conquer with losing his first wife.

I also think it was smart thinking for Jillian to save the first person to leave her team. This totally prevents her from playing favorite later on and takes the "save" card completely out of her team's game. I found it a very good strategic move.

Yes, I'm glad Jillian didn't get David. I think he needed a different trainer. I love Jillian. She's my favorite but it's also because she is just like me. David totally shut down when confronted with her style of coaching so he needed someone more apt to sit down and talk those issues through. I think Dolvett was a good choice.

The woman who has a crush on Dolvett is so weird.

Bob and Holley will be an interesting team.
