    It seems a bit suspect to me. Kelly says the only time she ever lost 15 lbs. in a week was the first week, and then to lose 13 lbs. (which is what she needed to guarantee her place in the finals) the final week. I am just saying.

    1-For some reason I dont like either one of the girls

    I am with you Linkers. I use to like ALi, but she has grated on my nerves these past few weeks.

    They want a female winner as much as most of the viewing audience... those who they've spent all season telling us are the underdogs (they weren't).
    They're trying to set up a real grand finale.
    Cynical, huh?

    Good point. I thought the same thing. The producers rather than the contestants are the real ring leaders here.

    You know, I really don't think Ali has anything left to lose. She is almost too thin already.
    Kelly could probably lose another 10-15 pounds, but she is getting down to the healthy weight range.
    Mark is probably at his healthy weight range, and so I don;t see him losing much if anything at home.

    Roger on the other hand, could probably still lose another 20 pounds and look good.

    Of all of them....I personally like Roger the best, so he gets my vote.

    I agree with you, gauc girl. Yes, the person that lost the most weight from those that got sent home has won $100,000 while the #2 and #3 people that remained at the ranch won something like $50,000 and $25,000. I don't think that's fair, either.

    The only time that it seemed fairly appropriate was when Poppy won... because she was rewarded for losing the most weight all on her own without the benefit of the ranch at all. Those that were on the ranch but got booted shouldn't win more than the #2 and #3 people.
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    With the way they do it (based on percentage weight lost), Roger is actually not the biggest loser. Ali is.

    Ali 42.3%
    Mark 40.7%
    Roger 39.7%
    Kelly 34.3%

    As far as real time, Mark indicated that the time away had been about 5 months. I've seen a couple of blogs that indicate the same, which would mean they only have about 6 weeks or less to lose more weight before the finale.

    I felt the same way until I read your post. Then it hit me. Many players get sent home due to game play, not performance and it is great that they are rewarded for continuing their wieght loss without the benefit of the ranch, trainers, etc.

    Any legal resident of the US, 13-years-of- age or older with a valid e-mail address may vote online for the Biggest Loser contestant you believe should be one of the three finalists competing for the $250,000 grand prize. However, voting is currently limited to one hundred (100) votes per e-mail address. All questions regarding any voting issue will be determined by nbc.com in its sole discretion.
    This is the information from NBC....

    vote for who you want to be in the final three....and you get 100 votes per email....

    How can you tell the voting so far?
