Is it the writer's strike or what? Have you ever seen 30 minutes of television stretched out over two hours like that before? Appreciate the psychotherapy bit but had absolutely NO interest in watching any of it. Call me insensitive, but I really felt like a voyeur and had to press the FF through that whole segment.

<sigh> My fave person is gone. Was he a hero or a chump? Only time will tell. Sure hope he does well.

1. "RE: Feb 12"
I liked Jillian's mom when she got pissed off at Paul's dad way more than when she was doing the whole shrink speak.

I was shocked the blue team lost again, and only by one point. But more shocking was the way Bob reacted. What a baby. And here I was all night thinking Bob was going to be pissed at Dan. Here was my senario: Black team wins challenge, gives immunity to Dan, Dan waters up, blue team loses again, Bob throws fit and walks out. I was way off.

Which brings me to another shocked moment for me, when the black team didn't give Dan the immunity. I guess they were looking down the road to winning, and Dan's been doing so well.

Sadly, Trent left. He seemed to be the only one who is actually here for the right reasons. He volunteered to go home because for him it wasn't about the money and he has finally grasped how to make a life change. I hope he succeeds.
As much as I love Jillian, I have to agree with Bob that she shouldn't force therapy on people. Yes, they probably need it but it shouldn't be forced.
And could Bob have been more of a baby? I am hoping he did it as a motivator or something. Otherwise, just a big baby.

Trent also said he really needs to get his knee worked on. I'm not sure what's wrong with the knee but I hope him leaving was the best thing.

And there sending everyone home next week and according to Jillian the following weigh-in is "tragic".

I think they said in an earlier episode that he has a torn meniscus.

ETA: Yes, and so does Paul.

I was pissed because we actually caught up to the Tivo from all the FF'g.

I think Trent has done well at home - looked like he had lost an additional 25. He may have had to rest his knee.

Brittany and Bernie are annoying me. Maggie annoys me. Paul and Kelly are working hard, and I know one of them will end up getting screwed because of the sub-alliance. I still feel like instead of giving immunity to the highest loser, they should put the two lowest losers up.

What is going on with Jay? That is 3 weeks in a row with low, low numbers. 5, 5, 4? Mark has grown on me. Right now I'm pulling for Roger!!

I assume next week's home visit will just be short-lived. A visit.

Not sure what to say about Bob, I missed part of his conversation at the end.

Mark's grown on me also. Especially when he basically offered to take Trent's spot in leaving, for the team.

8. "RE: Feb 12"
Yes, an interesting episode. I could have done without the physcotherapy bit too. We wouldn't of had that if the episode was only an hour long. (stretched out this whole season because of the writers strike is my guess)

I was bummed that Trent wanted to leave but I respect his decision. He really did need to get his knee taken care of and you could tell he had learned enough to be successful at home. Selfishly, though, I wanted him to stay since he was my favorite.

I got way tired of Dan's "poor me" attitude. Yeah, he's bummed his mom is gone but it was due to game play, which he and his mom had recently employed. So he needed to get over it way faster than he did. I was glad, though, that he decided to stop pouting and move on with the game even if his feelings didn't completely match what he was saying.

Like you guys, I expected the whole "Bob walking out" thing to be over a more dramatic thing. I think his whole attitude towards his blue team has been wrong. I don't know why he thought the big guys would automatically win. Did he forget about Kae already? She was on his team and was one of the smallest players but she consistently lost weight and did super well. Plus, I think the blue team has been rather cocky. Good to see them knocked down a notch. It didn't seem like they were working less hard than black but they assumed they'd win.

I also didn't care for Bob telling him team that NOW is the time to start gameplay. I think that Bob has gotten more into "the game" this year rather than being there to help contestants change their life. I think he is interested in both but I feel like gameplay is his biggest motivator this year. That's too bad.

See, I thought Dan showed alot of maturity with the way he handled things. And I think there was alot of editing that made it seem like he was the one continuing to be emotional about the kick off.

Yeah, I agree. I thought Dan was amazing to talk to the older guys and be upfront with them. I think he really displayed maturity and knew that he had to stop whining and just get on with things.

I think Trent is amazing. I am glad he asked to go home to take care of his knee and see his baby. He was a great guy. I like Roger too..he seems like a good guy.

Yes, this season, Bob is also confusing me too. I agree that he seems WAY into the game play this season and a lot more cocky and arrogant.Walking out on his team because they lost??? That doesn't seem like something "old Bob" would have done...heck..he even supported Neil when everyone hated him last year! It is so confusing why he has turned (or being edited)to being so arrogant?

I also worry about the Maggie/Bernie/Brittany alliance over Paul and Tracey. Paul is working his butt off...he really wants to stay.

And..I too felt highly uncomfortable to see the black team spill their innermost secrets on international television. If I was on the black team...i would have definately not allowed my segment to be shown...as I am way, way too private for that. I found the whole thing quite cringe-worthy and felt bad for the participants to have it aired. It may have been useful and I am not saying it wasn't...but did we really need to see it? Maybe they wanted us to see that so we (the public) could understand that weight issues often go much deeper than merely an "eating" issue..and I understand that..but it was still hard to watch.

12. "RE: Feb 12"
I agree. Whatever his motives for doing so, I thought Dan made a wise decision to put aside his anger at the blue team, come to them as a group and say, "yes I was upset but now I want to move on and for us to work together as a team." His continuing high numbers prove that he can do it without his mom being there as a main support.

I'm going to miss Trent. He is just the sweetest guy, and you could tell that the rest of his team were broken up over voting him off. If he wanted to stay, I'm sure it would have been Dan on the chopping block instead. I hope Trent continues with his healthy changes, and I think he will, because he is highly motivated to do so, so he can be around a long time for his wife and son. (How cute is his little boy! So darling)

I was surprised that Bob walked out immediately at the end of the weigh in. But maybe he's angry with himself, not with his team. Most of the team did put up very decent numbers, they are clearly working hard and are very focused. So what's missing? Are they really stuck in the "big dumb jock" mentality as Maggie feels? Maybe if they felt like underdogs, that would push them back over the top again.

The whole therapy thing -- I wish they hadn't shown any of it. I agree with those that said it made them feel like voyeurs. Obviously, for the three they showed, they agreed to have that footage played. Patient-doctor privilege must have been waived. But I don't like being privvy to other's deepest, darkest secrets, all in the name of a reality show. As to Paul, I hope when his time on the show is done, he gets some intense therapy for his past abuse.

I think everyone there is working hard. But it's going to be interesting to see how they do at home, for what I guess will be a short visit. Who will binge? Who will still show decent weight loss numbers?

that weight issues often go much deeper than merely an "eating" issue.

Did anyone else feel an implication that everyone's weight problems have some big emotional far-reaching cause?
Everyone who has had divorced parents didn't gain weight.
Everyone who was abused as a child didn't gain weight.
Sure, those things may have contributed to these peoples problem, but I don't know that everyone can blame being overweight on something that has happened in the past.

Just like not everyone's weight problem is due to overeating. With my hubby it's mostly lack of exercise and eating the wrong things at the wrong time. (or only one meal or having dinner late at night or skipping breakfast, etc.)

I agree. Brittany's excuse seemed a bit lame to me. I mean lots of people have gone through a parents divorce, but to use that as the only reason for gaining weight seems pretty weak, and a credible therapist would have picked up on that. Maybe this was not about the contestants at all, but a marketing ploy cooked up between Jill and her mom to drum up more business for her practice. Just a thought.

18. "psychotherapy and Bob"
I know Jillian concentrates on the emotional reasons behind people gaining weight, and yes, that is an issue. But dedicating that much time to it was uncomfortable. I turned it off, and came here to find out what happened! Bet that wasn't good for ratings. Yes, I know reality tv is about being a voyeur but there are other things I'd rather be peeping in on.
I wonder if the editing on Bob this year is because he's planning on leaving. Even in Biggest Loser Australia that Bob and Jillian trained, he never got a bad edit, and for the first time I really can honestly say I don't like him.
So, I got wondering, why? Why are the producers showing this side of him? I'm sure he's had days/moments/etc. of being an ugly trainer, but this year just seems quite mean.
Is he planning on this being his last year and the producers are getting back at him? Hmmmm...

19. "RE: psychotherapy and Bob"
I'm not sure of the reason why he's being edited to look like a punk a$$, but my GF HATES him now. Every time he's on camera, she grits her teeth and verbally shares her dislike of him.

I'm guessing Happy Bob can't always be the one dimensional happy guy. What I mean is that I'm sure the guy has every emotion we all have, but in the past he's been the good to Jillian's bad. Instead of us seeing lots of changes and multi-layers, we seem to be getting the ugly only!! As much as I don't really like the new direction in editing or Bob's true erratic feelings, he's human. I think they're either doing it for ratings, discussion, or a build up to some great moment later in the season. If we all gather to wonder about his new persona, the message boards/blogs get more traffic. Who knows really?!!

Welcome aboard, MicsPics! It's great to see new faces here!

Stretching 30 minutes into two booooooring hours is nothing new. Last year, every BL show was stretched out waaaaaay too long. Almost the entire second hour, even with only five contestants left, was taken up by the weigh-in, elimination, and the interim between the two events. Always split up by those ubiquitous commercials. That's why I haven't been watching the Couples series. Tired of all the loooooong, draaaaaawn out draaaaaama.
