The Biggest Loser 2007

Tonight’s show was just as touching, uplifting and motivating as last night’s. It was tough, so hard on them to do it all again up those 73 flights of the World Tower but now they look and feel invincible. It has added so much to their confidence. Bob’s face was such a classic. He could not believe AJ was going to make them do it all again when they were just celebrating the success of the mammoth challenge. It was as I said…triumphant. The lights in their eyes, the confidence which radiated from them and then the sense of freedom they had. Gone were all the catty remarks and stupid comments. These were people who felt they could achieve and do anything now. They had no more feelings of unworthiness. I couldn’t believe it how AJ got Munnalita to talk like a normal person at the top of the run. Munnalita just prattled on like a normal woman to AJ. A woman who felt proud of herself and could speak without that irritating nasal whine. For the rest of the show she practically avoided it. Courtney , too. No more nasty comments. Just straight opinion and he hit the nail bang on the head about the challenge. It was unfair that 3 of them had been out of the house with their families and the others had been there forever. To let the 3 of them be in that contest to win seemed very unfair. At the 11th hour Chris actually showed compassion. He suddenly genuinely felt like Damien really deserved to win out of the two of them and that he, Chris ,could actually afford to lose that one. Damien won by a magnificent 2 minutes odd. That’s a mighty mental step forward for young Chris who, on the way up, thought he was there just to win and if he did, so what, he deserved it and never mind the rest of them. It was just brilliant to see Damien win because he fought so hard and his emotion was so heart breaking. The wobbly chin even cut through Chris’ ice. Yes, they all got to see their family, but Damien got to have an evening with his girlfriend and what a great reward for someone who has to work twice as hard to do those challenges. He really is inspirational…to everyone, and to those as big as he was, he has shown them you just have to shift that big bottom and get on the move and you, too, can be a hero.
