    I liked him too except for having to wear the hat all the time.

    I wasn't surprised that the 2 leaders in percentage were the only 2 that really competed to win the challenge. After talking a big talk most of the others almost started walking immediately. I wished they would have shown their times.

    Yeah. I cried.
    I realize that I was emotionally manipulated, but dang it worked.

    TBL *really* doesn't like facial hair, they always shave the contestants in the makeover rather than trim.

    I enjoyed makeover week. Everyone looked great.

    For anyone interested, TBL:Australia is back as well. Really interesting concept this year. Two of the trainers went to the fattest town in Australia and weighed the whole town in. Then they interviewed people to come back to their ranch and go through the process. Not sure how eliminations are going to work this time around and there is a trainer missing but there is always some kind of twist to that version. People that get eliminated probably go train with the missing trainer.

    Too bad the shaving didn't extend to Bob and his mustache. :)

    Herndon,...
    The emotions by David's daughters were real and that alone was enough to get my wife and mother-in-law weeping. That felt genuine to me... not manipulative. Some of the other 'reveals' were less genuine feeling.

    I think 'cause generally overweight people grow facial hair to camouflage their weight. Shaving the beard is like saying "I don't need camouflage anymore.

    Plus he looked good without it.

    I swear I saw that caterpillar move during the weigh-in. :eek:

    I couldn't tell. I was distracted by the gold sparkle coming from his mouth when he spoke. :D

    Well, that plus he kept talking about how he started growing it when he got diagnosed with diabetes and wasn't going to shave it until he'd lost 100 lbs on the ranch, so... he was planning to shave it all along. :)

    Rachel winning the triathlon wasn't a huge surprise, I think. Although I thought she'd had a bigger lead after the swimming.

    I really like her, and want her to win, but given that she's at 150lbs already! I can't see her beat the other two guys.

    Between last week's show and this week's show, was it just one week real time? Or had they been training for the sprint triathlon for longer than a week?

    The losses the women put up seemed like just a week, but were the guy's losses just fantastic for one week's loss at this point in the process, or was it longer than a week and the women just didn't do so hot? Though I guess Rachel's loss was not bad at all given where she's at.

    That had to be a longer "week" given the guys' losses.

    Because she wasn't vulnerable to the red line you'll remember she only posted a one pound loss this week.

    She could have loaded up on water to "hide" any loss this week and then it will magically be revealed and added onto her losses next week.

    I think they do a lot of water loading/dehydrating around weigh ins to try and manipulate results.

    My first thought was that she water loaded, too, but she doesn't really have anything to gain by doing it in the last week.

    I still watch this show every week but I have had a hard time finding someone to really root for. I haven't been a big supporter of anyone since Abby Rike.

    Since the finale is against starting weight, this strategy doesn't really make sense, though.

    It could lull the others into a false sense of security- they might think she's slowing down.

    Do we know how many (real) weeks there are between last night's recorded episode and next week's live episode?

    Since there are two big guys left, I don't think either one of them will take it easy, just because they feel Rachel is slowing down. But, I hear what you're saying. Also, who knows how long she has to make decisions like this, and she might not have thought it through all the way.

    I think Bobby would go easy if he thought he could get away with it.
    I just don't get a sense of conviction from him.
