Congratulations to Frado and Patrick for both being guaranteed a spot in the final 3, on last night’s episode of Biggest Loser. The girls, Ada and Elizabeth will wait for the viewers to vote on who should stand amongst the boys, next week at the live finale. Congrats to all 4 of them for completing an entire marathon, which totally blows my mind. I didn’t think Elizabeth would make it past mile 6, but she showed me. This girl, despite herself (she has been the weakest link since the first episode) has come so far, in 4 and half months, it’s truly mind blowing! The final 4 all look fantastic and though Frado has had my vote since week one, my heart truly wants Patrick to emerge the Biggest Loser. He has done an incredible job reinventing himself from the 400plus pound man he was just a short time ago. I think that Frado and Ada will both be ok with Patrick winning as anyone would love a quarter of a million dollars, but Patrick truly needs that money desperately. He has a totally supportive wife, who lost 50 pounds herself, while Patrick was on the ranch. I am not sure which way the votes will go for the girls. Ada, sadly showed us last night, that going home is not a good place for her and my guess is she will NOT be successful in keeping her weight off in the long term, but I hope I am wrong. Can’t wait till next week to see ALL the contestants come back…so many we have forgotten about by this point will return and be mere shadows of their previous selves. IMAGINE–Biggest Loser–the 6 month miracle, in a TV show. Great job, David Broome and NBC.
Even more important today, than Biggest Loser update is the reality that today marks the 30th anniversary of the cold-blooded, senseless murder of a man that stood (and reclined) for peace, love, music and all things kind and beautiful. A man that taught us love is all we need and encouraged us to imagine living in a world where there would be nothing to kill or die for…The world lost a great musician, husband, father, pacifist, leader and dreamer and his loss is felt as much, if not more, today than ever. Thank you, John Lennon, for your tremendous contribution to the world. May you rest peacefully in fields of strawberries…forever.
