I have to make it pretty quick today, because I'm taking the girls to the zoo. I must be crazy because there's a pretty good chance it's going to rain on us. But, it's rained all freakin' week long - so we're going to chance it. The sun is shining here at the moment, and we're taking in the glorious site and going to drive 2 hours to get to the zoo.
But, that's not what today is about, is it now? Nope. Thursdays are for my Biggest Loser breakdown. The day I
This week the contestants faced the excuse: I can't lose weight on vacation. And were swept off to Hawaii. I don't know about you, but I've never used that excuse in my entire life. Who in the heck thinks about losing weight when they go on vacation? Not me.
I have to admit, but I got kinda bored with the first half of the episode. The contestants went surfing with Bethany Hamilton - the real soul surfer. I really thought that spending some time with her would whip some of the contestants in to shape with their whining - but it didn't. There was still plenty of whining for everyone to hear once the surfing was finished.
Kim was feeling pretty sorry for herself. She feels alone in the house now that Emily and Cassandra is gone. I'm surprised, because up until a few weeks ago - I didn't see her with Emily or Cassandra much... but apparently she was really close to them. So, while the other women were sitting around eating and being catty about how much they don't like Kim - she was at the hotel gym working out. And I say, good for her!
The challenge this week I hated. The contestants had to run up and down a steep hill collecting leis. They then put them on other contestants statues to eliminate them from the challenge. The person still standing at the end won immunity.
Immediately Kimmie, Megan, and Chris went after Kim. Conda, Jeremy, and Mark started going after Chris. And poor Kim was just trying to get as many leis as she could to stay alive. Kimmie ended up finding a "death lei" that took a contestant out immediately. She placed it on Kim's statue. Kim was out of the game.
Then, Conda, Mark, and Jeremy slowly took out Megan, Kimmie, and Chris one by one. Mark is an idiot. He should have thought about taking out one of them in the beginning. He knew damn well that those two were going to gang up on him to take him out. Not only that, but Jeremy and Conda actually let Mark do most of the dirty work before they took him out. Mark actually made a comment at one point along the lines of "America is right about you two". Which makes me thing Conda has been receiving some of the..urm..feedback that viewers have been leaving for her. Jeremy, once again, decided to let his sister win - because she can't do anything for her freakin' self - and Conda won immunity. I was so ticked off. But Allison warned her that if she gained weight - the immunity would be gone.
Mark then went and had a private chat with Kim and told her that he had no intention of voting Kim off - even though she thought she had a big target on her back. He actually had the cheek to say that he wanted to be surrounded by competitive players in the finale. What a load of crap!
Finally, it was weigh in time. Gonna make it quick. Here are the numbers and percentages...
Conda - lost 4lbs 1.81%
Chris - lost 3lbs but earned a 1lb advantage in a game - 2.24%
Buddy - lost 6lbs - 2.14%
Jeremy - lost 7lbs - 2.57%
Kimmie - lost 2lbs - 1.23%
Megan - lost 3lbs - 1.52%
Mark - lost 4lbs - 1.96%
Kim was the last to weigh in. There was Kimmie and Megan at the bottom. Kimmie was definitely under the yellow line - and it was up to Kim to either prevail or be under the yellow line with her. Kim stepped on the scale...
Kim - 5lbs - 2.84%!!!
She lost the most weight out of anyone - and put Megan and Kimmie (mother and daughter) under the line together.
Megan and Kimmie both gave a little speech, and of course, Kimmie threw herself under the blade. She asked that everyone respect her and send her home. Kim came out with some food for thought about how being the last two vote offs have been about "the game" it would make more sense to send Megan home. Of course, nobody did that - and Kimmie was sent home.
I didn't like this episode. But, it did make me like Kim even more. As much as I am not a fan of a single person left in that house - I'm pulling for Kim, now. She fights hard. And she doesn't let anyone else carry her through - like Conda.
Next week, I believe the contestants win money for the amount of weight they lose - so of course, Conda will be all hard work for that one. She's definitely not there to just lose weight - it's apparent that something has to be in it for her to win. I just hope with all my might that the rest of the contestants see how much power Conda and Jeremy have - and break up that team FAST!!
OK - gotta run so I can get to the zoo before it starts pouring rain.
Till next time. ;)
