The Biggest Loser – Can The Trainers Get A Drama Coach?

Is The Biggest Loser still a four night a week show? Monday’s elimination show episode was fast paced, but last night it was back to being more drawn out.

Also I have noticed the big difference between the two fat busting shows is the over acting of the trainers on The Biggest Loser. And they do it so badly. Tiffiny trout pout is making her looked permanently shocked. Because Michelle’s forehead does not move because of the botox she has to use has mouth to express what she is feeling so always a lot of jaw on the floor looks.

The first new scene of the episode was the teams sitting on the couches and the four trainers walk in to do the mock shock of who has been eliminated. This week it was 20 year-old Selena.

However the hack acting job continued when it was revealed that there was no need for Selena to have been eliminated.

This was the cue for all the trainers to have a crack at Margie who was the culprit of this dastardly deed. Margie tried to defend her decision that Selena wasn’t taking it seriously or trying hard enough so she basically this was the consequence of her actions.

Obviously Margie finally had it imprinted into her brain that maybe she had done the wrong thing.

Actually for the first time in a few seasons I thought Shannon Ponton said something that made sense, saying that the he knows that the contestants on the show and his outside clients are untruthful to him about what they have been up to, but he does not give up  on them.

Margie in the end stormed out after a tongue-lashing (no double entendre) from Commando.

And then it was onto the individual challenge and hallelujah it was completed in the one episode.

One person from each team was to go head to head in an elimination type scenario. Does anyone else think that the girls are at a disadvantage in these challenges. Do they get a lighter medicine ball to carry?

Michelle, Lydia, Shane and Luke represented their teams. Michelle was serene in the medicine ball challenge, but was eliminated in the balancing the egg challenge. Lydia was the first to go and collapsed on the floor crying because she felt she had failed. She also ran out of the shed, with Margie close behind.

In the end Shane won, and he will get some sort of advantage for his team. Shane also revealed that his sister had died of morbid obesity at the age of 32, and that was one of his motivators for being on the show, as well as getting healthy for his 2 year old son who suffers from autism.

The Biggest Loser continues tonight at 7.00pm.

Margie is a hypocrite. Everything she damned Selena with, she is guilty of it herself. Michelle was to soft with her.

Oh, and it wasn’t Margie who ran out after Lydia, it was Lisa. Wouldn’t want to imbue Margie with any human qualities such as caring or concern, would we.

Yeah!!! What’s wrong with Teethany’s lips? She must have botox her lips as well.

Good thing Margie didn’t do the challenge. She’s never held balls before.

“Teethany’ is a keeper.

Anonymous – It looked to me that Margie followed her out, and the it cut to Lisa and Lydia being outside together. But I could be wrong.

Little Petal – Hilarious

Smauge – I still think that the excuse she gave is bollocks, I think she didn’t get it.

I think Lydia yelling at Margie to shut up during the challenge was gold,too. Could be trouble in porker paradise there.

RR – I could be wrong too. But it was definitely Lisa comforting her. She’s a bit nondescript looking, as if life has ignored her. I hope she gets her mojo back through this ‘journey’.

I have a feeling Margie was going to follow her out – I sort of wish she did as Lydia possibly would have smacked her in the mouth!! 😛

smauge – Exactly!! To be honest Margie has had MORE years to sort her shit out so shouldn’t be there at all according to her own logic!

BEST part of the show was the look on The Commando’s face right after Margie threw the cushion at him. Pearler! We rewound it a couple of times just to laugh more!

What’s Margies problem; can’t she sort herself out at her age instead going on about Selena’s age, gimme a break. How cool was she at 22 – I think the spark with Lydia and Marg is gone too; always arms over each other. Last Lydia had the shi*ts with Margie yelling; so it was a good thing Marg didnt follow her out and sometimes we just need to be alone, hello
Anonymous – hope Lisa gets a spark back too (she lost a son in late teens thru asthma I think I read somewhere) shame…..

Lydia said she was “in the zone” before the challenge and then she’s in a foetal position blubbing afterward.

I can confirm from the encore that ball and chain Margie was the first to go after Lydia when she bolted, braying meaningless cliches like “it’s all good,it’s all good.”
