    The new season starts tonight. I'll be interested to see how they change the formula for the new season on a new network. As much as I usually dislike all-season threads, we can start with one here but if there's enough traction, feel free to create individual episode threads.

    Not a positive experience or result for those on the show in the past:

    Not surprising since the show always went for mass weight loss rather than reducing the body fat percentage.

    Fat to Fit to Fat was a little more interesting, but then I don't know if those contestants kept the weight off either.

    Well it looks like they didn't drag out all the weigh-ins. They zoomed through a couple of peoples.

    I thought it was funny Robert said he's there to learn how to lose the weight and keep it off. I guess he hadn't read any of the articles linked above.

    Well I finally got caught up since being on vacation last week. I thought it was a pretty good start.

    The first episode was pretty predictable that the woman who had such a low loss was actually not going to go.

    I liked the new discussion segment with Bob where they could air out what they were feeling.

    I like that it's the lowest loser on the losing team that goes. I figured the lady that went home would go home early, she was so heavy it made it hard for her to workout as hard as the others.

    In front of...
    Ouch, the 6 year later metabolism drop is disheartening to say the least.

    as much as I don't want to do that, I might eventually.. though I suspect USA will rerun them to heck.. so I'll just do new & repeats.
