The Biggest Loser 2008

So what was that all about with Monika and the basketball. Rachel lobbed it at her back. It wasn’t hard. There must be a real weakness there so she would never have survived that ruthless weight challenge. Ruthless? It was hard to watch because it was such a cruel game . Fur was ruffled, teeth were bared , claws were sharpened and it was a fight to the finish. Cosi is very strong mentally and physically. He can suffer and has a great deal of personal power over others which he uses to advantage. No one else seems to play it that way, but Cosi calls the shots so he achieves his goals and his toughness gets him where he wants to go. Totally cerebral and strategic. Kirsten can match him on the mental strategy and has the same physical toughness. She doesn’t have that sort of personal power over others, though. Garry was going great guns on the treadmill and was shining like a star and then came in to back Cosi and lost his ground. Sean is awesome. He toughed it out almost as long as Cosi along with his heel spur and his heart. He’s all heart, Sean and so admirable for it. He hates strategy. He always looks at co operation and loyalty to gain strength which is why Michael gutted him. Kirsten was doing 20 on the treadmill today but Bob had got Michelle to do that a couple of weeks back…while Jillian was having kittens! Michelle looks so good when she is running. She is elegant and can really hit her stride which is a massive achievement. It was good to hear from all the others and hear varying points of view. We have been on a rather restricted diet of commentary. So if those 6 are going to do that massive challenge, I am so glad the Commando is in there for Michelle and Bryce because they keep being slapped in the face with a wet fish for no good reason by the show. I love how Bryce just says it like it is. He is frank ,open and very direct…and usually calls it pretty well. So who will be the two? Cosi will probably win it because he is so fit. He used to be so fat. How did he get to be that fit? Bryce will give it a good shot. Michelle and Nicola will be able to hang in there. Michael is intimidated by Cosi and Sheridan is a bit of a dark horse at the moment. She seems to have put quite a few things in perspective since she left the show. She used to be a bit airy and vague but now she seems very grounded…so we’ll see. I’d like to see the show carry on without Cosi because it is better without him. He deserves to be there, there is no doubt about that, but he seems to have messed a lot of people around and they are more relaxed without him. It would give Garry a chance and he certainly has turned himself around. He tends to hand control over to Cosi when he is there. Sheridan doesn’t, nor do Bryce and Michelle. The biggest loser has to be an independent operator.
