    When Bob used the save on Matt(?) - just after having said there were certain people that he would like to use it on if needed - you just knew that Holly was one of those he had in mind (and Matt wasn't). And when she fell below the red line, you could also see the regret on Bob's face that he'd used it on that guy.

    I started noticing the gold tooth on Bob's instagram account back in the late summer. Not sure if I just didn't notice it before or if it is new.

    I don't remember him ever having a gold tooth before, and I notice stuff like that usually. Or I did before I started playing Candy Crush when I watch tv that I'm just not that invested in watching every minute. :)

    That's exactly what I thought.
    So much so that I was surprised that they didn't cut to that guys face during Holley's farewell (or if they did I missed it).

    Ha! What's funny is Bob got me in to candy crush via Instagram. A month or two after the CrossFit games he posted a photo of himself, at "Bob's Box" on the biggest loser ranch. He was sitting on the "rogue worm" and holding his phone. The caption was something along the lines that he was at work and Candy Crush was ruining his life. I downloaded it immediately. :)

    How is it possible that Ruben loses only 2 pounds? He's still really big and has been losing much less than anybody else. Has he even had one really good week? I think a different trainer would probably have been better for him. It will be interesting to see how he did at the finale.

    I half expected them to show video of a few Rulan Gardner moments (unauthorized late night snacking, etc.). I just hope we don't have any more manufactured 'errors' that allow him back into the house yet again.

    Seems clear to me that Rueben was not truly vested in the process. He was paid to be on the show to boost ratings... pure a simple. They brought him back once with the flimsiest of excuses but I doubt they can do that again.

    Well it looks like another attempt of getting Ruben back on the show is coming.

    They just won't stop trying to make him happen.
    Personally, I don't see the passion (or effort) from him, but maybe that's just me.

    I know he's lost xxx amount of pounds so he's doing something right, but in comparison to many of the other people it looks to me as if he's just going through the motions.

    Still missing Holley here.

    Weird timing on this season. They usually have the finale before the holidays then the premiere for the next season is right after New Year's. Three weeks until the next episode, and then the finale isn't until 2/4/14. They must not be doing a spring season this year.

    He'll be back after the break, just in time for his new album to drop. *eyeroll*

    This really doesn't surprise me much though with a season subtitled "Second Chances"

    To be fair, the idea of bringing back a contestant from those who were sent home has been done before, so it's not like it's new for this season and it's not being done just to bring Ruben back.

    I liked the cowboy as a person, but yes... wearing the hat during workouts and weigh-ins was just strange. :rolleyes:

    I'm sad he was eliminated as I'd have liked to see what he looked like after the makeover.

    Rachel is my favorite. That race up the bobsled course was tough! I ran hills today myself... 500ft climb over 6 miles. She did 400ft over 1 mile at 7,000 ft. altitude. That's bad-ass!!!

    She's cute too. ;)

    I'm surprised Apollo Ono didn't whip out Subway sandwiches when he first met them :)

    By the way, of all the product placement on this show (which is getting worse and worse now that BL has its own resorts and weight loss products), the only one I actually LOVE is LaraBar. Those things are awesome... and made from very simple, natural ingredients!

    I like me some Jennie-O lean turkey too... :)

    Tumi (is that her name?) looked amazing at home! Good for her :up:

    Can't wait to see bearded widower get rid of that beard- it drags him down and ages him terribly. I'll bet he looks 20 years younger after it is gone!

    So much for that... :p
    His new wife (who I really like based of what they've shown) is going to freak out! In a good way I hope ;)
