Leave it to NBC and BL to do something or other every week to piss their viewers off. We waited all season for the makeover episode only to find it was only one hour and left us with a TO BE CONTINUED ending. All week they had promos for the First Lady and we saw her for just a minute, no doubt the reason they split it into 2 weeks. They can promo it and her again all week. That said, I thought that the makeovers were good and it had to be incredibly exciting for the contestants to have a chance to go to the White House. I think I like Mark better with the beard, but of course they shaved it off. They cut and colored Conda’s beautiful long hair, but it looked great and so did she. Jeremy looked quite adorable. Buddy looked pretty much like Buddy, sans the glasses. Chris definitely took at least a decade (or 2) off her age, with the new cut and color. They also traded her glasses in for some contacts and all and all she looked awesome. But in the end, it was Kim who knocked me out. Wearing a tight size 6 dress, she has not only lost tons of weight, but has a gorgeous figure, now that we can see it! I don’t know if she has enough weight left to lose to win the whole thing, but she is MY pick for the “most dedicated.” It’s quite clear that if a contestant once had a knockout body, they are most likely to have one again. In the very beginning of the season we saw a picture of Kim at her “fighting” weight and she was HOT. She is once again.
It was great to see everyone reunite with their families, but sadly we couldn’t see how the at home partners are doing. I am anxious to know how Chism is doing …and how Santa is looking, too! He better do something with that white beard or he is definitely going to look more like Chris’ dad than her hubby! And it looks like I’ll have to wait another week to see them work out with Michelle. That was mean, NBC and BL, but I will keep forgiving you and watching because the transformations make it all worthwhile.
On a totally different note, it is definitely spring (aka summer in South Florida)! Yesterday I “opened,” the pool with a quick 10 laps. It felt FABULOUS. Tonight, opening night for the Marlins. Have I mentioned lately how much I love spring and it’s fever? Hoping wherever you are the fever has hit as well. Enjoy.
