Rachel was the smart one for planning for the trip.

In as much as I hated Jay leaving it really was him time. Remember when Sam had to leave (I forget what season) because he reached his goal weight on the show? Part of the game...he was likable too. Ended up marrying one of the girls on the show. Anyway, yeah

The ONLY problem I had with the product placement is Bob is vegan promoting turkey & eggs. I wish they'd let him show more vegan recipes....wait, I wish they'd let him show ANY vegan recipe...lol.

I know he's showing the contestants who are probably NOT vegan, but I certainly wouldn't mind seeing a recipe here or there (I AM vegetarian)

Jay's ' farewell' was very good.. very honorable and he left on a High Note... without pointing fingers at anyone. I liked that.
I would have preferred that Bobby be the one? but he seems to still have a lot of issues that are keeping him from giving 120% of himself? who knows if they will be able to help him entirely before they all leave the Ranch.
Rachel is Awesome!. There must be something in those Green Shirts. :) she is reminding me now of Tara from previous season. She's got the determination and yes WOW! I was SOOO impressed when she pulled out her little cooler of food and explained how she took time to Plan and prepare... That's an excellent lesson for ALL of us... and certainly one i need to try to learn.

I liked this episode. I love the oympics and it is befitting for the players to go there. What a treat! I know Bob hates it when they yrabel but honestly, I think it is best for the contestants to learn from the experience because, face it, they wil all leave the ranch at some point.



I think the product placement was appropriate this time. It was a commercial a chance to see Bob and a good tip.

Sad to see Cowboy Jay go home but I think he was afraid of going under weight. Which being almost at his goal was not a threat. I wanted to see him at makeover week and maybe get a new hat. Hard not to like the guy.

GO tumi!!! She looked amazing on that treadmill.

BARBARASDIET - I agree with the part where Jay and Bobby were telling the others why they should get to stay. Here is what stuck out to me though from that part. They were supposed to be telling the others why they should keep them on the ranch.
JAY focused on what he has done and why he should get to stay and BOBBY basically talked about why they should send Jay home.

I have really enjoyed this season. I like the red line. I hate all the game play and back stabbing and drama. I liked them showing Rachel plannig for a trip and Bobby not. Really she is serious about weight loss. I wish they would show more of how they plan for the day. How do they get the food? Do they fill out a menu or the fridge is just full and you make what you want???

I am an intelligent person.
I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me.

We need each other.

Definitely prefer the red line. I hated that segment of Jay and Bobby justifying why they should stay. C'mon..

I was sad that Jay left. He is one of my favorites. There have been votes in past seasons when people vote to KEEP that biggest threat on the ranch because they say it helps push them to do even more. I realize it is a game, but I like that way of thinking better than voting off the biggest threat.
I also prefer the RED LINE to the YELLOW LINE. Bottom line, the person with the lowest percentage goes home and the others don't have to decide which of their friends dreams they are going to kill.
If it would have gone to to a tie, Bobby would have gone home. If it would have just been a red line, Bobby would have gone home. I agree with DEEKELLYE that Bobby doesn't seem to be working as hard, worrying as much about this nutrition, etc. And Jay kills his workouts every week. Just in case it wasn't clear.....I think that Bobby should have been the one to go home last night. I am still super excited for makeovers though next week, especially David!!

I think for me? the Biggest thing i enjoy about this Season is that Everyone seems to like , respect, and Support one another.
For those of us who have watched the Biggest Loser for several years? we have had some Real Stinkers as far as Contestants who were devious, spiteful, back-stabbing and downright mean. i HATE that sort of crap .
So to see how this Group appears to get along with each other and Support their Common Goal? i enjoy that.

There was the One Season with that Dreadful woman?? can't think of her name at the moment, but it was a Couple's Season. people were on with their Spouses . Her husband's name was Brady i believe? She was truly the VERY Worst and i grew to really hate seeing her on the show. So much so? that in one of the Biggest Loser Cookbooks? she had a page with recipe and a bit of drivel about how Wonderful she was!. I refused to buy the book. i had ordered it from Amazon and when i saw that page! i returned it and asked for my money back and sent a ' letter' to the production people to say why.

I always Tivo it and watch it Wednesday THEN come to the board :o)

I thought it was an AWESOME show! Jay is looking goooooood and really I was glad to see him go only because, well, his work is "done". Bobby still needs help. Bobby did it at home but clearly there still something letting him "slip" and that needs to be addressed.

This show had everything....inspire, exercise, last chance, competitions, fun, everything....

My only problem with this thread is that I can't see the latest show until tomorrow! I watch it on HuLu. I really like Jay. He was so motivated, thought he was more of an inspiration than a threat. But then the whole show idea, is inspirational to me!!!

I don't see Jay as a threat, maybe just in the competitions. The man pretty much reached his goal. I agree Bobby needs to get the lead out. I missed most of the show, but saw that Jay got voted off, again they made a mistake. Think biggest threat now is David. He still has a ways to go. As long as they still have weight to lose, they will still have bigger numbers. Several of them, already look pretty good, and it will be harder to keep from being under the yellow line.

I thought it was pretty good. They are putting in a little game playing, a little about nutrition, a little about exercise, and tried to please everyone. I don't know how else they can do this as they need to please their audience.

Last night's wasn't bad, but I still prefer the one hour format.

I was sorry to see Jay go but they eliminated the biggest threat.

I watched last night's episode and thought it was pretty good. I thought they should have kept Jay on the show instead of voting him off. I really don't like Bobby. He doesn't seem to work as hard as the other contestants and Jay busts his backside every week. I am totally not surprised that Bobby gained 2 pounds. I was expecting him to gain a whole lot more. It seemed like he didn't tell the whole truth about his eating while he was in Utah. I cannot wait to see make over week. I am glad that, even tho, Jennifer didn't lose any weight that she didn't fall below the yellow line. I am glad that the show is two hours long instead of an hour.
