    I like to see the huge contestants. They are the ones that really need the help. It is great to see all the weight go away. I don't mind that they are still overweight by the end of it all.

    Totally agree with this. One of my biggest complaints during the first few seasons was that the men looked "normal" at the end of the season while the women always still looked heavy. Then they must have figured something out to get the women to be able to lose enough weight to look thin and now most of the 225-250 lb. women are getting down to low enough weights that they too look "normal". I know people like Shay lost a lot of weight during the season but it is a bit of a let down to see someone at the finale still morbidly obese. I much prefer to see the moderately overweight contestants than the hugely overweight ones. But they want to be able to stun everyone with people losing 20+ pounds per week and the moderately overweight people can't do that. I personally don't care for the direction the show is taking. Thank goodness for the DVR as I basically only watch about 20% of each episode, mainly the challenges and weigh-ins.
    I agree -- all the crying and lately, backstabbing has gotten to be too much. I even fast forward the weigh-ins now.

    I know the producers are doing this to get a larger audience, but how many of us can relate to weighing 400-500 lbs?
    In memory of Buckley, he went too soon.

    On the other hand... if they can do it, the rest of us should be able to, no? I'm catching up on old tapes right now, including some sessions of TBL...inspirational for treadmill use...walking while they sob, etc.!

    Was it pretty obvious that Melissa (Red Team) is the one who gains +1 in next week's weight in. Why do the producers do that?

    The preview showed the weight to be 215 and then +1. Melissa weighted in at 214 at the first weight in.

    I know this sounds mean but Im kinda glad this happened to the red team. I dont like that woman for some reason. I cant explain it but something about her just rubs me the wrong way.
