Mark said he was afraid of bridges. He said he avoided going over them and that he even closed his eyes when he drove over them (wouldn't want to be driving near him when he did that, if he does indeed do that). He never said he was afraid of heights. Jay mentioned being afraid of heights.Originally Posted by hikari;2889117;
Honestly, I don't think that Mark's wife was being mean when she made the comment about him crying again. It sounded like one of those comments you make to your loved ones - maybe if someone else said it it would sound snarky, but coming from someone close to you, you know they're just kidding or don't mean it in a mean way. And I honestly don't see anything between Ali and Mark.
I think Jay looks nice but Mark does look a bit wizened, particularly when he smiles. He's already passed his goal weight and I do think he looked better face-wise a couple weeks back. So maybe when his weight stabilizes he will look better.
I agree with hikari that the challenge this week was really good (and tough!). I liked how the random woman runner was encouraging Kelly to soldier on. That was nice.
I thought it was known/understood that Bob was gay? (Not that there's anything wrong with that, to quote Seinfeld). I've not watched any previous season, but I know that others have mentioned he was more "smurfy/zen-like" in previous seasons. I liked him more early on in the season, now I just find him okay. And I started off not really liking Jillian, and now I like her more. But, really, I think they are both good trainers and good people.
