    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.
