    I cried tonight too, Mary is just so sweet.

    I'm disappointed they are doing the stupid elimination thing already. Although I'm guessing it won't be a real elimination and it will involve Michelle in some way..

    Yeah I think Michelle might be secretly training the ones who never made it as well.

    I couldn't keep watching. I don't think they are helping any of the contestants.

    I hope I'm wrong but it just feels like a mega crash diet all for the show and the drama. I know it's reality tv buts it's real ppl lives

    My husband and I believe that if they really cared about overweight people's health then there would be no eliminations. They'd just give the prize money to who lost the mist weight and peopke in the house could continue to get healthy and lose weight. But it's just a game

    It is. I know they do teach them healthy eating habits but the rest of it is not reality. No one exercises all day at that intensity. What purpose does eliminating someone after a few weeks serve? What if their reality of every day life makes them slip into old habits? Also a lot of these contestants have overweight partners too! That makes me cringe.

    Just look at how mary fainted in that challenge with walking on the sand and carrying chains. Seriously? Which doctor or pt would in their right mind condone that?

    It always seems to me that these contestants are genuinely there to lose weight and don't care about the money.

    They've had temptation challenges whrte they put massive amounts of unhealthy food in front of them....how is that helping them?

    Well there's temptation everywhere irl. The reason they are so successful in the house because there's none of that food in the cupboard. They have to burn at least 600 calories a day exercising, which isn't a lot considering their weight.

    I don't think it's fair they get eliminated, but the final 3 have to go and live on their own for a while before the finale.

    This biggest loser was filmed in the middle of last year and it's already finished.
