    Re: The Biggest Loser Ukrainian transformations

    Russian Season 3 Episode 7 Brief Summary.

    This episode was probably the most boring in all three seasons of the Russian show. There were a lot of workouts and medical tests and Iíll skip all that in my recap because they add nothing special to the story and leave only the main events.

    - On the next morning after Stasís elimination all ten remaining contestants gather in the living room. Anna feels bad about her vote last night and tries to make an excuse again, saying that she just fulfilled Svethlanaís plea to keep Denis here. And here Svethlana says that she didnít ask Anna about this at all. Anna is like ďWTF?Ē and then Svethlana admits that she asked her to look after Denis but says that she didnít mean to keep him here over other strong contestants. Anna feels even worse after this, feeling that she has eliminated the wrong person. I wonder how Denis feels after his motherís words about her thinking it would be right to eliminate him if he didnít deserve to stay here. Then the scene is over and everyone goes to work out and I wonder whether it was the promised clash between Svethlana and Denis. If it was, it was quite a small and not effective clash.

    - In the middle of the workout the showís doctor visits the house Ė right, this is exactly the doctor that was in the morgue in week 2. This time he has some good news though Ė most contestants have improved their health and physical statistics. The doctor is mostly impressed by Maria whose heart rate goes back to normal state quite quickly after the treadmill run. He says itís a ďspecimenĒ. Maria seems not to know what does this word mean and asks with fear what does it mean, and the doctor explains to her that ďspecimenĒ actually means something great. But overall, everyone is doing very well. Which means that the trainers will push the contestants more now.

    - At the challenge the teams have to carry huge water bottles and fill with them a huge semi. The team that has the fastest time doing this wins 1 kilo of advantage at the weigh-in. The challenge is either not interesting. Although Red Team members make a few mistakes and break a bottle on their way (which gives them 15 seconds of penalty), they actually work better together and carry the bottles faster while in the Blue Team girls and Andrej slow the team by carrying bottles only in one hand. Red Team wins and gets 1 kilo of advantage at the seventh weigh-in.

    - At the weigh-in, Red Team wonders how Denis will do this time after his starvation and laziness in the previous week. Blue Teams expects a huge number from Andrej. In the end, the chips fall as follows:

    RED:
    Anna: 102-98 (-4). Excellent, but letís not forget she had a zero last week.
    Denis: 156-152 (-4). His ďnot less than -4Ē streak continues.
    Maria: 100-98 (-2). Steady.
    Ivan: 157-154 (-3). He could have done better. The guyís results always a little bit smaller than they should be.
    Agatha: 94-91 (-3). Wow! Two -3ís in a row!

    Red teamís total this week is 16 kilos and percentagewise itís 2,62%.

    BLUE:
    Mascha: 103-100 (-3). Finally more than -1 and -2. However, sheís still in the triple digits.
    Andrej: 180-176 (-4). Heís not happy with this number.
    Svethlana: 97-95 (-2). Quite well for her.
    Boris: 123-119 (-4). OMG. The guy sheds kilos like crazy.
    Olesya: 123-120 (-3). Itís one more -3 for her, and thatís it.

    Blue Teamís total weight loss this week is 16 kilos as well but they have 1 kilo out because of the lost challenge so the total is 15 kilos and their percentage is 2,40% which means Blue has lost the weigh-in and someone from this team will be going home this week.

    - At the deliberation, itís all straightforward. At first, Mascha asks other girls about their motivation. Olesya says that she thinks she still needs to be here because of her lazy body. Then Svethlana says some obvious things about her desire to be here, but at the same time, sheís the oldest here and she has already found herself in her life, so it sounds like she hasnít go so many ambitions as some other people in the team. Mascha, however, notices with condescendence that Olesya drags the team down in the challenges and doesnít pull her weight for 100% at the workouts. Itís probably going to be between Svethlana and Olesya. Letís see.

    - In the elimination room, Svethlana votes for Boris because she thinks he already knows a lot about sport and health (Boris is a fitness trainer). Boris, in his turn, votes for Svethlana and says he did it because Svethlana herself taught to him to vote for the person who needs the least to be here and he thinks that Svethlana is ready to go home and has huge support system there. Then Mascha votes for Olesya because she thinks sheís the weakest link in the challenges. Olesya votes for Svethlana as for the eldest member of the group who hasnít got so much weight to lose. If Andrej votes for Svethlana, sheís eliminated and if he votes either for Olesya or Boris then itíll be a tie and the Red Team will decide whoís eliminated. Andrej says that itís very hard for him now even to speak. He actually doesnít speak at all, he just makes some indistinctive sounds that resemble bawling and opens the lid where Svethlanaís name is written.

    - With three votes, Svethlana must go home now. Everyone feels really sad saying good-bye to her and wonders how Denis will take that (in this moment the camera switches to the living room where the Red Team sits and exactly Denis says that right now someone from their initial team partners is being eliminated). Svethlana herself feel absolutely peaceful and comforted and just asks again to look after Denis and then leaves the room.

    - When we catch with Svethlana at home, she looks somewhat different and her face looks a little bit thinner. She definitely lost some weight, but as always in Russian show, we donít get to know her exact current weight. She is determined to weigh around 70 kg at the Finale which she actually may achieve if she works hard enough. Weíll see.

    NEXT WEEK: All four remaining men shave bold for some reason! And someone is going home for one day as a special reward for something!
    I'm the kindest person in the world, and if there appears someone who is kinder than me, then I will kill this person and will again be the kindest person in the world.

    Re: The Biggest Loser Ukrainian transformations

    Russian Season 3 Episode 8 Brief Summary.

    - After Blue Teamís elimination session, Red Team members sit in the living room and are anxious to see who is not there. As soon as Blue Team goes in one by one, they realize Svethlana is gone. Denis surprisingly takes it quite composedly, noting that he expected this and that he will now try to step it up.

    - At the next morning, all girls are getting ready for the workout session and are chatting in the gym. In the middle of their talking, all four men come in, totally shaved! I mean, itís no difference for Ivan who still was bold before, but Denis, Andrej and Boris are bold as well now and Boris shaved his beard which makes him a little bit unrecognizable. Girls are shocked and laugh and note that his cheeks are now opened to the view and they do look plump so Boris still has some way to go. When asked about reasons for shaving, men answer that it was Denisís idea. He decided to shave after his motherís departure to begin kind of ďnew lifeĒ on the show, and Andrej and Boris just followed to support him and to let him know he is not alone. Then the trainers come and laugh their heads off when they see the guys and Denis the trainer (who is bold as well) says that these are right haircuts. And then the workout starts.

    - After the workout (which had nothing that special) Ivan finds some DVD attached to the fridge in the kitchen. Itís some video message from Yulia. Actually Yulia says that the last weekís Biggest Losers in both teams (and these are Boris for the Blue Team and Anna for the Red Team, -5 and -4 respectively) will get some kind of special reward this week. And this isÖ a one-day trip home! Both Boris and Anna take it as a double-edge sword. They are happy to leave the ranch but understand that, first, there will be no gym and trainers at home, and second, others may envy them and might want to vote them out. Anna even comments while packing her bags that she must keep her mouth shut now because everyone perceives her as the big threat.

    - Anna and Boris head home. Boris has some time to warn his family about his arrival so he is welcomed by a warm home party. Anna, in contrast, arrives to her flat and finds out that itís empty and no one is there. She starts to call all her friends and relatives promptly and asks them to come to her, because sheís back for only one day. And a lot of people promise to come, even some guys from the totally another part of Russia! In the end, Anna gives a call to some man, whom she calls ďa friendĒ, and asks him about her favorite dog (which she probably left with him before she went to the show). The ďfriendĒ promises to bring the dog to her so they could meet.

    - Meanwhile, at the ranch the remaining contestants find another note attached to the fridge. It says that the trainers wonít come today! They actually have to do a workout themselves and to do all the usual tasks they do there. The ranch players are shocked a little bit but think they will handle it. You might know where the trainers are. They are on their way to Boris and Anna to check them out. They come to their houses and knock in doors and then are welcomed very well. Then, however, they bring to them the news that there is going to be some individual workout.

    - Denis takes Boris out for a long jog and some cardio exercise. In the end of the jog they arrive to some embankment where some old Borisís friends are waiting for him and cheering him on. Boris runs really quickly and Denis even comments that he ran better than he did himself, and that Borisís stamina is better than his now.

    - Irina takes Anna for a walk, at first to the park where that man with the dog is going to appear. He is already there. This is some man with a hood, with whom Anna seems like to have some relationships. She, however, plays and communicates mostly with the dog, which is very glad to see her and jumps on her. Irina notices the strange vibe that is in the air during this meeting between Anna and this man. Then Anna and Irina walk to the town and enter some skyscraper. Of course Irina tells Anna that they are going all over to the top by stairs. While going up, Irina canít wait no more and asks Anna who that man was. Immediately Anna shuts up and asks not to talk about it. She gets a little bit emotional and itís clear that there is some psychological pain associated with the man. Irina canít push Anna to talk no more and decides to wait for now. They reach the top of the skyscraper and hug over there, happy for completing such a marathon. And - surprise! - there are some Anna's friends there sitting at the table and waiting for her! Irina leaves them so they could talk on the personal level.

    - The next day the seven ranch contestants arrive in some middle of nowhere by bus. Going out, they see Boris and Anna who already left their home again and are here now to take part in the next team challenge. This is a mix of water polo and basketball. The contestants will play basketball in the pool, to be exact. They have to score points by throwing balls in the rings of the opposite team. The difference is thereís no just one ball for everyone. There is an infinite row of balls coming out from tubes so they can throw them without even paying attention to the other team. But of course itís desirable for the team to block the opposite teamís players from throwing balls either. The game will last for 30 minutes, and in the end the team with the highest score wins. The losing team will get 1 kilo of disadvantage at this weekís weigh-in. Without going into details, the Red Team proves victorious, thanks mostly to fast-moving girls and Agatha, who is amazingly accurate in hitting the circle. By the way, Denis told me that she is referred to by the nickname ďAgatha powerĒ (famous ďI got the powerĒ line from the song) at the ranch. And although huge Andrej tries to block Ivan and Denis from getting to the circles of their team, girls lead Red Team to the victory. I donít remember the exact score though.

    - Back at the ranch, both teams do last chance workouts. And here we are shown some recaps from the workout sessions at the day when the trainers were away. And we find out that some players, especially men from the Red Team, didnít complete their workout to the end! Denis was a way too slow at some exercises and didnít eat enough again, and Ivan simply didnít do all his usual tasks. This makes Irina very anxious. She talks to Ivan and finds out that he systematically didnít do the workouts to the end when Irina didnít watch him. She suspected it, though, looking at his mediocre weight losses in a few successive weeks. Now she can only pray for him, she says.

    - The weigh-in comes. Blue Team is going to have 1 kilo of disadvantage. As always, both teams will weigh-in and the team with the lowest percentage of weight loss will have to send one player home. Red Team is first up.

    RED TEAM:
    Anna is first. Before she weighs in, Yulia notices that something is bothering her. She asks to tell what it is. Anna hesitates at first but then (seemingly reluctantly) says that there is one thing that she didnít tell to her teammates. It has to do with that mysterious man. We find out that this is her ex-husband and they divorced just a few months ago. So itís a huge emotional pain for her, thatís why she didnít want to open up to Irina. Does she feel better now? She says she is. However, some of her teammates (particularly Maria) donít appreciate that she didnít tell it to them earlier and say that now they canít trust her as much as they did before. Come onÖ Then, finally, Anna simply steps on the scales.

    Anna: 98-94 (-4). Excellent job at home and second -4 in a row!
    Agatha: 91-89 (-2).
    Ivan: 157-143 (-3). Mediocre again. He confesses that he didnít do his exercises completely, but it looks like everyone in the team knows that already.
    Maria: 100-98 (-2).
    Denis: 156-152 (-4). His ďnot less than -4Ē streak continues.

    Their total percentage of weight loss is 3,04%.


    BLUE TEAM:
    Boris: 119-114 (-5). Great start!
    Maria: 100-97 (-3). Finally the numbers are coming for her!
    Olesya: 120-117 (-3). -3 again. Steady pace provides the victory though.
    Andrej: 176-169 (-7). OMG!

    Blue Team has some great numbers and, even with a +1 on their scales, their total percentage of weight loss is 3,30% which means theyíve won the weigh-in. As Andrej sees the percentage, he shouts loud ďYes!Ē, but then quickly shuts up, realizing that his wife is now in danger and that the Red Team lost. He promptly mumbles some excuse to the red guys.

    - Red team heads to the living room where they discuss what they are going to do. Main focus is on Ivan, Denis and Anna. Ivan admits once more than he skipped some workouts and thatís why the numbers arenít coming. Denis admits that continues to eat less than itís needed. And Anna admits that he hid some information from her friends. This point again somewhy makes Maria angry. She says she canít trust Anna no more.

    - At the elimination Ivan votes for Agatha because she is the lightest one so she is ready to go home. Maria unsurprisingly votes for Anna, raising a point of trust again. But Denis, Anna and Agatha all vote for Ivan because of his slacking and low numbers and thatís enough to send him home. They are worried for him at the same time because they arenít sure that he will keep it up at home with all the temptations. But he really dragged the team down at the weigh-ins so they couldnít keep him around. Ivan asks the remaining teammates to watch for Olesya and to take care of her in difficult situations. Not so much change at home when we see a video footage of him taken in November or December. In general, we didnít get to know the guy really well in these eight weeks.

    NEXT WEEK: Someone gets a serious injury that eliminates them from the competition in the middle of the week! And at the weigh-in, the remaining players go to singles!
    I'm the kindest person in the world, and if there appears someone who is kinder than me, then I will kill this person and will again be the kindest person in the world.

    Re: The Biggest Loser Ukrainian transformations

    Russian Season 3 Episode 9 Brief Summary and Gallery.


    It's been a while since I've posted anything here, because my job got at me seriously. Now I'm having a time off for a week and probably will finish the tale about the Russian season after breaking it in the very middle. But now I'm doing smaller recaps, with only the key details of the story.

    - As Week 9 starts, trainers arrive and Irina sees that Ivan is gone. She's not surprised, remembering how Ivan didn't do a lot of homework in the gym. She hopes that he will pull himself together at home.

    - Later Irina finds a plate with food in the dinner-room. Somebody didn't eat the breakfast. Red Team members tell her that it's Denis again starving intentionally. Irina literally brings the plate into the gym and waves with it in Denis's nose, educating him to get calories in the morning before the workout. Denis is seemingly unpleased with all this teaching.



    - The pop challenge of the week requires both teams to press two buttons 500 times. There's a catch. There are two buttons and they stand at some distance to each other, and the players must press them in turn. And to do this, they have to go under a bar hanging in the air. Teams will compete one after another and they can change players whenever they get tired. Men generally have no problems with the challenge because they have longer arms, but some of the women struggle. During the Red Team try, Blue Team members, Andrej particularly, start to cheer them ironically, trying to divert their attention. Red Team girls think that Andrej doesn't play fair. Andrej comments that this is not forbidden so he will do this. However, in the end Andrej's strategy doesn't work as the Blue Team loses by only five seconds. Red Team gets the prize - a game quest at some house and a chance to relax there.



    - The Red Team's quest involves a few dangerous spots as going through the rope and walking on a narrow bar across the wall. At first everything hoes wonderfully, but then Anna slips and falls from some construction on the floor and starts to scream in pain. Denis, Maria and Agatha run to her to find out that something is seriously wrong with her leg. Medics arrive and try to seduce the pain but Anna feels like she has broken something. She is taken to the hospital immediately. Of course the unfortunate quest is over and not finished and the distraught Red Team comes back to the house.



    - Back at the house, the Blue Team is surprised to see only three Reds come in. They learn about Anna's accident. Then the trainers arrive and learn about it too. Red Teams tells the other that Anna is in danger of falling out of the competition. Then Irina get the phone call, which is from the hospital. Upon listening almost speechlessly, Irina reveals to the others that Anna has broken her leg and it's quite bad and the doctors don't allow her any physical activity in the near three weeks which basically means that Anna is out of the competition and goes home. Everyone is shocked at hearing the news.



    - At the next day the remaining seven contestants arrive at the main challenge of the week. It involves standing on an unstable bar and holding to the rope. As soon as anybody steps down from the bar, he's out of the competition. As soon as all members of one team are out, the other team wins the competition. The losing team will get a 1-kilo disadvantage at this week's weigh-in. The challenge starts. After a few minutes, Blue Team members, especially Olesya and Andrej, start to struggle and move a lot and swing the bar, causing some enragement from Mascha who screams at them and tells them to stay stable. Then, on the other side of the competition, Denis is the first person to step down. Almost right after him Andrej and Olesya can't hang in no more and jump down as well, which leaves Mascha and Boris for Blue versus Maria and Agatha for Red. Maria turns forward and back a few times, then tries to readjust and loses the hang, leaving Agatha alone. Agatha, however, stands super stable, and then Mascha and Boris begin to struggle heavily. In a minute Mascha steps up, and later Boris also gives up. Agatha is the last person standing and wins the competition for the Red Team.



    - At the weigh-in Yulia delivers the shock news: there's a new twist in the game, and Blue and Red Teams are gone. Everyone receives their original shirts and the game suddenly goes individual. Two people with the lowest percentage of weight loss will fall below the yellow line and the others will vote off one of them. It also turns out that Blue Team's disadvantage is split between the remaining three members of the Red Team according to the order in which they stepped down from the bar: Boris was the last one to go so he get +100 gramms, Mascha gets +200 gramms, for Olesya it's +300 gramms, and Andrej who gave up first ends up with +400 gramms. I say "gramms" for a reason, because the weight loss is now measured not in kilos, but in kilos and hundred gramms, to make the game more fair.

    Boris starts the weigh-in.

    Boris: 114 - 111,4 (-2,6 kg). With +100 gramms, it makes -2,5 kg and 2,28%.
    Agatha: 89 - 87,7 (-1,3 kg). It's 1,46% and she is below Boris.
    Maria: 94 - 92,6 (-1,4 kg). Percentagewise it's 1,49% and she is in second place. Boris is safe
    Denis: 147 - 142,6 (-4,4 kg). It makes for 2,99% and he is safe as well.
    Mascha: 97 - 93,7 (-3,3 kg). Even with +200 gramms (-3,1 kg), it's still 3,20% and she is leading the pack. She finally delivers some decent numbers. Agatha and Maria are still in danger of falling below the yellow line.
    Olesya: 117 - 115,5 (-1,5 kg). With adding +300 gramms (-1,2 kg), this is 1,03% and she is in the last place and below the yellow line. With this, Maria is safe. Now it's between Agatha and Andrej.
    Andrej: 169 - 167,9 (-1,1 kg). After adding +400 gramms, this is only 0,41% and he is surely at the bottom and up for elimination.





    - The other five must now decide whether it's Andrej or Olesya who's going home tonight. The choice proves to be difficult because neither Olesya nor Andrej are ready to go and think they still need to be here and that they will fail at home. However, Maria makes a move and pleads additionally to let her husband stay because she knows him the best and knows that he won't do it for sure and it's too early for him.



    - At the elimination room her words and probably Olesya's inertia and laziness in the first few weeks pay off as (of course) Maria, Mascha, Boris and Agatha all vote for Olesya to go. Yulia thinks that the elimination process is over and that Olesya's a goner and formally adresses Denis who hasn't opened his lid yet and asks him who he's voted for. To which, Denis responds that he has no paper with a name under his lid. Then he says that he feels the need to go home now because a) he feels very tired here, b) he thinks that he learned everything he could here, and c) he wants Olesya to stay because she is his close frined and she loses weight quite slowly, unlike him. Yulia says that it's possible to fulfil his wish if he really wants it and if Olesya accepts it. Olesya does accept the gift. Yulia spreads hands and says that she can do nothing to persuade Denis to stay. If he strongly wants to go, he should go. (I spoke to Denis in vkontakte.ru after the incident and he responded that there was another reason why he decided to quit, and that was others treating him like a baby - the ocassion in the gym when Irina ordered him to eat like a parent, set him off and he decided that he was fed up with it and didn't want to feel like clown. However, he noted that if Yulia allowed to stay both to him and to Olesya, then he would have stayed).



    - Denis shakes hands with the remaing men, hugs with women and leaves the room. Mostly the players think that it was a noble deed, and Olesya is megathankful and cries, but Mascha thinks that it was a stupid move and that everyone should fight for himself. I also thought it was stupid until I found out that there was some psychical stuff involved. It made me a little more understanding.





    - We don't get to see how Denis looks now. Since this episode, all the eliminated players won't be shown at their homes until the finale to keep intrigue.


    NEXT WEEK: The remaing six contestants battle with the food maschine to determine who their trainer will be at the individual stage of the game. And at the challenge and during the elimination, some alliances show up and the friendship between the contestants starts to falter.
    I'm the kindest person in the world, and if there appears someone who is kinder than me, then I will kill this person and will again be the kindest person in the world.

    Russian Season 3 Episode 10 Brief Summary and Gallery.

    - At the next morning after Denisís free-will departure, the trainers come with their jaws dropped to see both Andrej and Olesya still here. They wonder whatís going on and only then see that Denis is gone. The remaining contestants explain the events of the last night and Irina comments that she did expect something like this from Denis due to his youth and a lot of immaturity. Still she respects his decision and the fact that he did it also for Olesya and hopes that he will do excellent at the Finale which is, in fact, only a month-and-a-half away from now.

    - At the end of the previous week the remaining contestants began an individual game. Still they donít know who they will train with. Thatís what they are going to find out in the challenge of luck. Itís a well-known food machine challenge, known to the American viewers from season 5. All the contestants must one by one press buttons on the food machine and open all the packages that fall out. The package contain either food (both light and heavy in calories) or instructions with some exercise or, finally, the instructions to go to one of the gyms (Russians have two gyms, one is cardio, the other is functional). In each of the gym, one of trainer waits. Denis is waiting in the cardio gym so everyone who goes there will train with him. Respectively, Irina is in the functional gym and everyone who comes there will train under her surveillance.

    Yulia explains the rules of the "Pick your trainer" challenge.


    Vicious food machine.


    - Girls mostly have no luck and have to eat a lot of things before going to any of the gyms. Maschaís luck is especially bad as she eats almost ten items before getting the instruction and she even cries in panic as she stuffs her face with cheeseburgers and French fries that fall out. Men have much more luck, they get little food and more exercise. In the end, Boris, Agatha and Olesya go to Irina, and Mascha, Andrej and Maria join Denis. This means Andrej and Maria are together again while Olesya leaves Denis for the first time and freaks out about it, because she doesnít like Irina, which she actually shows in the workouts at this week.

    Mascha crying as the machine throws a huge cheesburger to her.


    Irina's new team complete.


    Denis' new team complete.


    - The challenge is a fan favorite choice. Strangely, but it turns out to be the ice and ropes challenge from Russian season 1 and USA season 13, where the contestants must collect flags by pulling their weight on a skating rink. The first person to collect all the flag wins and gets immunity and some mysterious advantage.

    The start of the challenge.


    - Very quickly the bond between the remaining members of initial Denisí team shows up as Andrej, Maria and Olesya unite and basically focus on helping Andrej to get all the flags. Boris, Agatha and Mascha see this and openly judge the three for doing that and then also unite to get the flags for Boris but itís too late and they just helplessly pull their ropes around as the heaviest guy (whose big weight comes as an advantage this time) easily wins it and gets immunity. What Andrej wins as well isÖ the only vote at the elimination. Itís huge and bittersweet for Andrej, who doesnít very much like the idea of voting somebody off personally.

    Alliances showing up.


    - Thereís not much more to say, letís get to the weigh-in. As always, two people with the smallest percentage of weight loss will fall below the yellow line and one of them will be eliminated.

    - Before the start of the weigh-in, Andrej decides to pass immunity to his wife, because he feels confident in his weight loss. Maria accepts it. This means that now Andrej can be deprived of his right to do the only vote if he falls below the yellow line.

    Maria: 92,6 Ė 90,9 (-1,7 kg). Her total percentage is 1,84%. Herself immuned, safe from elimination.


    Agatha: 87,7 – 86,9 (-0,8 kg). OopsÖ That may cost her. Itís 0,91% and she may be dangerously close to the yellow line if not below it.


    Boris: 111,4 Ė 106 (-5.4 kg). The percentage is 4,85%. His huge pace in weight loss continues and heís definitely going to be safe with such a percentage.


    Olesya: 115,5 Ė 113,3 (-2,2 kg). 1,90%. Not so bad as Again but one more mediocre weight loss moves her close to the yellow line.


    Mascha: 93,7 Ė 90,8 (-2,9 kg). Her performance really gets better and better, although she keeps standing on the scale in tears because of poor nerves. Itís 3,09% and she is very well safe, however, she pushes her team partner below the yellow line. Now itís only question whether Andrej or Olesya will land in the elimination together with Agatha. Note: if itís Andrej, no only vote.


    Andrej: 167,9 Ė 163,3 (-4,6 kg). 2,74%. Safe and has the right to cast the only and therefore the deciding vote.


    - So itís between Agatha and Olesya this time. And Andrej gets to decide who goes. The guy secludes himself in the living room and starts to think. Boris, who is friends with Agatha, feels that Andrej may vote her out because he feels close to Olesya so he tries to lobby for Agatha by saying that she has worked hard for the whole time at the ranch and from the fair point of view deserves to stay over Olesya who whined a lot and didnít give 100% every single time and would have gone the previous week if Denis didnít quit. Andrej tries to pretend like heís listening very closely.

    - In the elimination room, though, he just quickly opens the lid with no words to reveal ďAgathaĒ. And then of course starts to mumble some noble words about Olesya needing to stay here more. Yulia doesnít buy it and asks whether Andrej ousted Agatha because she was a bigger threat for him and his wife and because they were friends with Olesya. Andrej at least admits that partly this is the reason, which just infuriates Mascha, who is Agathaís Aqua team partner. She aggressively asks Andrej whether he feels any guilt for voting out the strong person and keeping here the weakest one. She is genuinely amazed at the fact that Andrej voted out Agatha ONLY because heís friends with Olesya (come on, honey, thatís how the game is played here, wake up and smell the coffee). There are some N-words coming out of her mouth and she just looks ugly.

    Andrej votes for Agatha, eliminating her.


    Mascha freaks out at Andrej and Olesya.


    - Her words canít change anything, though, and Agatha has to pack her bags. Her departure leaves Andrej and Maria as the last remaining intact duo. Yulia notes that there is definitely an alliance between Andrej, Maria and Olesya, and that Boris and Mascha are in a really vulnerable situation right now.

    Agatha leaving the competition.


    And her fridge goes off.


    NEXT WEEK: Three eliminated contestants come back! (Which was expected, because there are five people left with five more weeks ahead) And then everyone goes to work out with CT Fletcher, who is a good friend of Denis the trainer!
    I'm the kindest person in the world, and if there appears someone who is kinder than me, then I will kill this person and will again be the kindest person in the world.
