Biggest Loser shows have a pattern with me. When one is really good, the next one isn’t as good. Last night’s was just OK. I hate when contestants get put in a room with food, but I guess it’s all part of changing the brain, which is paramount in any journey. I loved when someone decided to pour orange juice all over the junk food to make it unappealing. Great idea. Reminds me of what my friend Lisa used to do with her daughter’s leftovers—pour water over them before she could get a chance to eat them…smart! As for the bubblegum pool challenge, it was actually physically appropriate at this early stage of the game. Looked like the heavier the contestant, the harder to pull his or her weight thru the gum, which is really just a metaphor for life. The earlier challenge, of answering trivia questions about childhood obesity was very educational…and sad. The average kid spends over 4 hours a day looking at a screen. Not Jane’s boys—hat’s off to some strong parenting skills that will pay off for life. If I could go back and do it all again, my boys would have less screen time, too! Back to the show, my favorite part of all was when Bob came into the “kid’s junk room” filled with food and gave the contestants their last chance workout, using nothing but a deck of cards. With each suit representing and exercise he dealt them one at a time until his team had thrusted, squated, pushed and burpeed more times than anyone can count. That is a workout I will definitely be saving for a rainy day…literally. And in the end, though it was blue team that got holed up in the junk room, it was red team that lost the weigh in. What’s up, Dovett? Or more likely, what extreme measures did Jillian’s girls resort to?? Early in the show they mentioned they would do whatever it takes now that there are just 2 of them. I have to wonder how Bob’s team put up a lot of 2 pound losses, but Jill’s girls took off 6 and 9 pounds. In fact, Kim’s 9 pound loss made her the biggest loser of the week. Maybe it was simply a case of “eye of the tiger.” Those girls would no longer be a team if 1 got eliminated and Kim’s “look at me now” dance was worth watching the whole 2 hours. That dance came from her soul and it was nice to see her so carefree and happy. So Dolvett’s red team lost the weigh in and I just didn’t want to see poor Jackson go home. My heart aches for this boy and I want him to have as much time as possible at the ranch. Cate got eliminated by her fellow teammates and I bet she can do a great job at home. I don’t have much attachment to many of the contestants yet, so I was fine with this elimination and she seems to be doing pretty well at home, out of the 300s and on her way…Now, if I can just get used to Bob with those glasses…….
