Comments on 7th weightin:
What I liked about this episode:
All the castmates are so over Dustin and his walkouts.
Hellweek. Liked the challenge. Liked the competition between Willie and Tina. What I really enjoyed was seeing the cast interact more with each other, seeing how they are trying to motivate each other instead of the stupid antics of a few. Seeing how Willie and Toccara were trying to get Erin on the same game plan as themselves. It seems like both Toccara and Willie have written AJ off as far as helping them win the grand prize. AJ may surprise them as this last week (for the finale) it is his yo yo down week. I do agree with Willie as far as losing any respect left for Erin and wonder as to what her motivation is. If winning money is her sole motivation she is doing a s*** poor job. Look as Tina and Willie. I get the impression that Erin is not doing any of the physical activity she needs to be doing on her own. Maybe this is why she is getting injuried so much. It is a tad rediculous. I do agree with Dr. Stacy that part of being on the show is doing the program. These guys are all professionals actors or professionals in the entertainment business and by now they all know the score. I love that Willie and Tina and Toccara have embraced the show, the program and the health aspect. I even believe that Toccara will keep the weight off. Willie and Tina definitely will. Dustin will do the program to win the prize and then quit. AJ, Brian, Sommore and Erin are all failures as far as seeing how this will help them. What does piss me off is that they are getting paid to eat right and get help from a diet expect, a psychologist and a fitness indstructor, advice and expertise that would cost a regular person thousands of dollars and yet half of the cast is pissing it away. Erin does seem in a bad place now, does she need the money for drugs or alcohol? She just seems a total emotional wreck. I do think she is being "on" during the challenges but quits when the cameras are not on her. I personally think she is the worse contestent by far this season.
As far as Dunkleman saying he left American Idol because the kids were being treated badly, I don't really buy that as there have been several articles out already by several persons involved in the show claiming that the contestents are treated badly. It comes across as damage control (to his career), done long, long after it was due.
