The Biggest Loser 2008

Well, we have found out how sanctimonious some of them are. JJ is obviously someone who really is an irritant and they love to hate him. They don’t really appear to have a good reason but they clearly do not trust him, they clearly feel far superior to him and they find him very disturbing. Fate, on the other hand, believes he is worth a decent shot and the Commando manages him really well and is not at all ruffled by him. I think he finds him amusing because he can see his limitations and wants to help him overcome them. That is a good trainer. My concern with JJ is that he has clarity of thinking even to the extent he realises he becomes confused and irrational in his thinking. He articulates well how he deals with that. He understands his problems and he has an expectation that people will just let him rattle on and that it will have no effect. His emotional detachment is of concern.The only one not ruffled by him is, as I said , The Commando, and AJ seems utterly bemused by him. Tonight’s challenge was excellent. The 3 way tug o’ war last week was brilliant and this water polo challenge was great. Visually it was hilarious because of the costumes. It showed up how sexist Cosi is because the women were bitches if they put up a fight and the men were just getting in there. For someone so young he sounds marvellously dated in his thinking. Kirsten did look at home and she could hold her own against the men but Sam was also pretty awesome considering at 19 he was taking on the 2 wiliest men in the pack and he out outmanoeuvred them. It was just great. Michelle is too judgemental and needs to relax. She gets so limited in her thinking and starts making some pretty harsh judgements. She needs to be more circumspect. Garry I like less and less and Carrieanne just blew me away when she was kick boxing with the Commando. She was so strong ! The twins need to be broken up because it is unfair emotional support. My belief is the biggest loser will be offered the 50 000 to leave the show….and that it will be Garry. My final four are Sam, Bryce, Carrieanne and Kirsten…but Alison is starting to toughen up. I’d also like to see Sean and John do well because when we saw old footage of John…he just looked so ill and sick when he joined the show, and old. So old. He looked so happy and well last time we saw him. He deserves to be rewarded for choosing to live.
