I took copious notes tonight during this week's Biggest Loser. I had planned to tell you how three previous contestants returned to the ranch after being at home for several months.
I was all set to go on about how Nicole lost 87 pounds AT HOME and how that gained her a spot back on the ranch and immunity for the week. Helen has been on the ranch the whole time and has only lost 80 pounds. Tara looked scared because Nicole's massive weight loss landed her as the #2 contender in the house.
I had planned out post based on the theme of realizations:
- Tara's realization that there are deep psychological issues that contributed to her weight gain and that she hasn't really faced those demons yet.
- Kristin's realization that Ron is playing the game to keep Mike on the ranch and has been manipulating the votes in ways to ultimately benefit Mike.
Despite this, after all the tests and a transfusion, it was decided Ron could go back to the ranch with some meds.
Oh, I had planned to detail the whole freaking show. But that went right out the window in the elimination room.
Nicole gained FIVE pounds her first week back on the ranch. And in doing so, lost her immunity for the week. So it ended up being Nicole and Ron (who gained 3) up for elimination.
"Please let Ron be voted off," I thought out loud.
Mike voted against Nicole, duh.
Lauren voted against Nicole because she is afraid of her.
Sione. I could kiss him. He commented that everyone always voted on who needs to be at the ranch. Then he said, "If we start depending on the ranch, then what's going to happen when we go home? We are all going home." And with that, he voted for Ron.
No surprise -- Tara voted for Nicole. She is totally threatened by her. Helen voted for Ron, making the vote a 3-3 tie.
So it came down to Kristin. "So help me," I thought, "if she votes for Nicole, I am FINISHED!"
For crying stinking out loud! Kristin, have you learned NOTHING?! That's it. I am officially not rooting for Kristin any more. I think that ultimately she'll come to understand how she is screwing herself by keeping Ron around. In the meantime, Sione is my man.
