Thinking on it, I think this particular aspect of the contestants quitting bothered me more than anything else: their attitude toward Bob and Dolvett.
When Bob and Dolvett approached them, the contestants told them flatly "this has NOTHING to do with you." And then, silence.
Really? I understand Bob and Dolvett get paid big bucks to do this show, but they also have invested emotional energy and have used incredible patience with these contestants (read: Conda). These people came on this show because they were unable to do this alone. They were unable to get their butts of the couch and lose the weight, and Bob and Dolvett were the ones to get them to do it. Buddy's remark that he wasn't going to have them tell him when he was going to work out reeked of a lack of gratitude for what this show has done FOR them. They act like they did it all themselves... and it makes me want to puke.
And yes, Bearcata I agree that it wasn't a boring season. But it did leave me disgusted... I do want to care a little about the contestants and be happy that they are healthy and thin. I could care less about Conda and Mark and many of the others. I already fast forward through most of her comments... and I'm sure I will at the finale as well.
