    Luv'ed, luv'ed, luv'ed the one hour format. Hear that BL producers. I would watch regularly if it was one hour, or at least more often. Can't believe all the drama that was fit in. The episode actually felt lively. Enjoyed the Day 1, Day 2 .... countdown. Luv'ed that we didn't have to see a last chance workout. It was much more interesting to see a montage of the day to day grueling workouts. Interesting to note that Chris is considered to have an abrasive personality. Ana Conda's isn't? She was down right mean and nasty when talking about Chris.

    A bit of a side note: Does this season have the most whiners and "I wanna quiters" than any previous season. There are plenty of people who will take your place.

    Seriously, the producers need to think about changing the format to 1 hour or do more 1 hour shows. It's a refreshing change and I think it will help the show keep viewers.

    I think she will continue to lose weight but I think it will be iffy if she gets into wonderland for the finale.

    I am surprised that Megan was not considered a possible vote off because she only lost 2 lbs.

    Ok..here would be my deal working out with Dolvett. I will do everything you say, if you will only take your shirt off, smear oil all over your upper body and stand in front on me while I work out....is that too much to ask for?

    ME TOO, LOL.

    Sad, I was looking at the applications for Season 14... they say you need to lose at least 85 pounds... thats about 20 more than I need to lose. I would gain 20 pounds if I thought it would get me on the Ranch! But I don't have a sad store or anything, so it would never happen. But seriously, these people are crazy for wasting this opportunity.

    I don't think that is too much to ask for, but I would make one minor change. Do it wearing only a speedo. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah......... .........I am in happy land.

    On another note (other than Dolvett!), I do feel for Gail with the Tendonitis. Although I have been walking my dog evey morning, I finally got to the gym yesterday and actually ran 2 miles and walked another. But by the end of the night, my foot hurt so bad I couldn't walk. I've been trying my best to fight the issue with my foot (plantar faciatis), but it doesn't seem to want to go away. It's very frustrating as I really want to commit to a half marathon, and don't know if I can do it.

    Sorry, off my soap box. I just hate seeing people on this show complaining so much when they have such an opportunity. I would work my butt off and take anything they put in front of me for the opportunity to leave my life and only focus on me (married, 3 kids, dog, full time job). I would spend 8 hours in a pool if I couldn't run, which is really what I like to do.

    Maxkl - I'm also suffering with a similar foot issue & training for a half. I've decided to keep training, stretch my heel as much as I can stand, & hope for the best. Good luck to you.

    Thumbs up on the hour show (thank you, US President Obama), thumbs down to all those whiny, crybaby contestants. This is the most I've watched of TBL this season & this bunch is really putting me off.

    I'm assuming you all with the plantar f. problems have seen a good foot doctor for orthotics. When I had this they were like a miracle cure...taped to my foot, and instant pain relief, and I'd been barely able to move for the pain. Then you have to do stretches that bend the foot forward towards the knee as it were, to keep things stretched out.
    It certainly does seem like a lot of quitters this season.

    I don't know, I think I'm going to give Chris a break here. I don't think she was really serious-- it was called a major bad day-- and I agree with her that she was just begging for help. Also, if I had to live in the same house with that Ana Conda (like the nic) I would be on the verge of quitting myself. That, or walloping her one.
    I can't even believe it got that close between Chris and Gail for the vote. One bad day does not equal a quitter.... Joe was calm and rational when he quit, he had made up his mind. She was hysterical. Plus, she puts her all into her workouts and Gail doesn't. It was close to being another bad vote, but the first rational one so far.

    Oh, you ladies are so BAD! :p Seriously, or maybe not so seriously, what would our reaction have been if a guy had said that about Anna K last season? You sexist pigs.
    I'm kidding. He's hot. Really hot. He could wear a snowsuit, and I'd still be happy to work out for him.

    ETA: I also really loved the one hour format. It's all we need, we still got the drama, and things weren't dragged out. Most shows get to the point of being mind-numbing boring... this one kept me interested.
