That's crazy. ONE two-hour premiere is more than enough. They're going to burn people out before the season even really begins!
I'll watch, but I can see myself taking lots of breaks during the marathon shows....
I was going to tape it and watch but now knowing there will be back to back 2 2hour episodes you can "forget about it", and I was sorta looking forward to a new shorter format enough that I was going to reserve some time to actually watch.
After watching the premiere I wish Jillian had stayed gone.
I like Jillian this season! Her contestants are just whiners so she looks like a meanie. TC had a good story, but he really couldn't stay on a treadmill for a few minutes? Really? Drama queen. And then they can't crab walk? Oy vey. It's all a set up, obviously, but don't go on the show if you're not willing to put in the effort and stay on your feet.
If Bob or Dolvett had been Nikki's trainer, they might have tried to talk her into staying. Also, I can't get the image of Jillian's rage-filled face out of my mind.
Jillian means well but she is over the top!
Add me to the Thank God Dolvett stayed group. My but that man is gorgeous!
