    I can see reality producers arranging it that way for the most dramatic effect.
    oh ick....yeah that makes perfect sense - in their world at least!

    I am bummed Louie is gone. I so enjoyed his presence on the show. It is obvious the other contestants feel the same way. I realize he could not have gone far, but I think he might inspire people to become active. It must have been brutal for him to practice, more so than anyone else. Yet, he worked as hard (and in one sense much harder) than others. I'm glad they are showing more of the practice sessions as we are able to see just how brutal and painful the training is. I noticed they brought the scores way done this week. However, I still have a beef with the younger judge. He gave Louie a 5.75 because `you hit the water hard.` Umm, hes 425 pounds, he has no choice but to hit the water hard, thats out of his control! Come up with a better, legitimate reason.

    I haven't been able to catch this show like I wanted to. Can someone tell me who the person was that fell off the board in the previews? It looked like they slipped and dangled on the board. Please only advise IF IT IS NOT a SPOILER. If it hasn't been shown yet, I wouldn't want you to post here.

    Again Louie shows what a gentleman and a great guy he is by bowing out and letting Brandi Chastain continue on with the show.

    Only 3 more episodes left with 5 contestants left, Kareem, Drake, Rory, Nicole and Brandi.

    I would like to see a final three with Drake, Nicole and Brandi as they seem the most evenly matched. Kareem is not up to their skill level and Rory as a professional extreme skier who does flips all day long has an unfair advantage to his skill set. I am surprised to see how much I am enjoying this show. I do hope Kareem is OK and not hurt by what was a very hard entry into the pool.

    Forgot to mention luv'ed Brandi's swimsuit tonight. She finally looked like she had boobs in previous episodes her swimsuit tops either squished her or mashed her down and it was not attractive.

    When I saw this, I thought: Okay, he's not up to another dive, so he's bowing out to save face.
    Then, after thinking a bit more, I'm guessing that it's more of a case in which Louie suspects he may get the "sympathy vote" (I'm sure the scoring ... system? ... is as painfully obvious to Louie as it is to the rest of us), so he's deferring to the better diver and making sure she continues.
    Best wishes to Louie for great karma, prosperity in health and career, and the granting of a wish that he's never verbalized, perhaps even to himself.

    On another note: I can't even imagine a 90 or close entry for someone with legs like Kareem's. Oh-em-gee.

    That was Nicole doing a practice dive right before the taping of the show. Or are you talking about next week's ep?
