Biggest Loser Breakdown

Last night's Biggest Loser was frickin' infuriating, no? A two hour show with no payoff? G was so pissed he swears he's never going to watch it again. I'm going to keep watching, but NBC is really pushing the limit here.

I'm amazed at how good Tara and Mandy look. They both look lean and hardly overweight, which is a real feat in those spandex shorts and sports bras. I was shocked that Tara still lost 11 pounds--a few more weeks at that rate and she won't have any more to lose.

The big promo moment was Jillian's mean girl approach to getting Laura to wake up and take ownership of her actions. Usually I'm down with Dr. Phillian (TM Potes) but this one seemed a bit ill-advised. The point that Laura is perceived as weak even though she doesn't have to be was right on, but it does seem like having everyone gang up on Laura is not the way to convince her she's not a victim.

So who's going to win? I'm calling it right now: Kristen. She's got so much weight to lose that no one will be able to top her if she keeps it up, and she seems to have the drive as well as be well-positioned in terms of alliances. Mikey may be her biggest competition. Filipe and Sione are practically athletes by now, as Jilllian pointed out, and I'm not sure they can keep losing for the duration.

Any other predictions?

  1. I'm going to try leaving another comment - I think I must be tech-slow because I screwed up last time....

    I was so MAD at the cliffhanger! However, I think Mike is a sweetheart for giving his groceries to Aubrey. He's starting to look really good too, as are Mandi and Tara. I think Tara only needs to lose another ten or fifteen pounds to look perfect. Some weight looks good on her frame.
