There was a small clip of the Red guy yelling at one of the trainers for calling his wife a liar. Well, if it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck...

I think they "accidentally" showed that little bit of her losing that 28 pounds on purpose. They knew people could see it, they wanted to keep us hooked. And it's working... Drama should be high at the next weigh in.

I really like the 2 teams that are fighting to come back... the mom and daughter and the dad and daughter...I would like to see more about them...I wish they could both come back and stay...they seem like they are in the "game" for the "right" reasons...to get healthy!

yeah it would be great if they did a BL 200 pounds and a BL 300 pounds...and so forth...it would make it more fair and more competitive at the same time!

Since they do the dunk test on everyone maybe they could do a season where all the contestants were within 2-3% of each others body fat. I still really want them to do one where the lowest weight loss goes home regardless. No votes. No immunity.

The last 2 votes didn't matter because in the case of a tie vote, the person with the lowest weight loss percentage for the week goes home (Maria).

I am sick of the Red team also - first of all, she has the least to lose of all the women, so she's not going to be the biggest loser anyway - just quit faking it and go away! The green team bugs me a little bit, although I can see why Miggy would get protective of Megdalia, Bob and Jillian are trying to help them.

I still don't have any favorites this season. Actually, I barely remember anyone's name, which is unusual by this point.

When they started the scene in the trainer area I thought - "Cool, we never get to see this part", and then I started laughing because - of course, it had nothing to do with showing us how they help the contestants, it was all about Schilling for Walgreens! Ugh!

My daughter insists I buy it for her in the checkout every time we go to the store, thanks TBL. I'd rather she had a piece of fruit when she had that fruity craving....

The orange team hasn't been mentioned much. I have to say that they are my new favorites. I love the son..he is so cute with his curly hair. I bet that this team goes far in the competition. I am really annoyed with the red team. I hope that Michael can get his groove back, he has so much potential and he REALLY needs to be there.
