Well, from what I've heard from former contestants they play fast and loose with the concept of "a week" every episode and have all along.
Or do we really believe that someone could lose 25 pounds in one week?

The Biggest Loser Season 15 Discussion Thread *SPOILERS*

I'm really liking the red line and lack of voting drama this season.

Couldn't any of those other ladies help poor Holley apply her makeup? This week was not quite as bad as last week but yikes!

I like the lack of the vote as well.

I have a question for those who pay more attention to these kinds of things. Did Bob always have a gold tooth? I just noticed it for the first time tonight.

I think I was paying more attention to him because of his new mustache for this season. It keeps catching my eye since I'm not used to it.

Oh, and now Bob's out of the closet. Good for him! I guess the producers decided that it would be okay to have a gay trainer on TV.

I don't think he's always had the gold tooth, he's alsp added more tattoos since the show started.

A always thought Bob was out of the closet?

I believe he always was out just never addressed it on the show.

Yeah, he's never mentioned it on the show before.

I haven't noticed the gold tooth, but I also am usually only half watching/all listening and playing Candy Crush, so I haven't really been looking at him a ton.

Also what is up with Jillian this season? It's like they replaced her with some super mellow person.

I didn't notice the gold tooth, so I binged him and looked at some photos. It must be a new addition because most photos show just full pearly whites.

I always feel bad when someone gets eliminated even though I know that no matter how well everyone does, someone WILL be eliminated. Over and over again. But I feel more bad about it with this show than other ones. All of these people are trying to get healthy, not just trying to win a prize. Do they just send them home?

I feel bad, too especially if it is someone that I really like.
And I liked Holley quite a bit- some people just make me want them to have a nice long and happy life and she is one of those.

I just keep telling myself that everyone but one is eliminated and the only question is in what order it happens.
I hope she has kept losing- can't wait to see her next week as well as on the finale.

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.

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.

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

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!

His new wife (who I really like based of what they've shown) is going to freak out! In a good way I hope
