LAST EDITED ON 12-08-11 AT 01:40 PM (EST)
Since everyone is making an effort not to spoil last night’s episode, I’m going to post this in the invisible font for now. I can make the post visible once everyone says it's okay. If you want to see my thoughts, statistics, and analysis, just highlight the blank space below. This way no one can accuse me of spoiling anything.
Oh, and before I go invisible, let me just say one more time, "Dolvett is hot! HOT!" I hope they don't get rid of him next season.
ETA: Per Boo's request, I have unhidden everything. Enjoy!

Weekly progress comparison:
I think it’s important to see each person’s progress throughout the competition. It speaks volumes about how each person worked over the course of 11 weeks on the Ranch, and I think it might give an indication of how they’ll do at the finale.
1st place every week.
Antone – did well the first 4 weeks, then started to slip in the rankings
1 – 2/15
2 – 2/14
3 – 3/13
4 – 2/12
5 – 5/11
6 – 5/10
7 – 4/9
8 – 3/8
9 – 3/7
10 – 3/6
11 – 2/5
I won't list Becky's and Vinny's weekly rankings since they won't be in the finale. Becky was down near the bottom all season but was always ahead of Vinny. Vinny was almost always next to last every week.
Ramon - was down in the bottom third most of the time, just above Becky and Vinny.
1 – 11/15
2 – 7/14
3 – 11/13
4 – 8/12
5 – 8/11
6 – 7/10
7 – 6/9
8 – 6/8
9 – 5/7
10 – 5/6
We don't know how much weight Ramon had lost by the time of the marathon, so I can't tell you how he compares to the other finalists. He was at 24.51% when he was eliminated in week 11. That week, John was at 33.48% and Antone was at 27.74%.
John is still 5.5% ahead of Antone. Given his hard work and focus, he stands a decent chance of winning.
I was a little annoyed because, towards the end of the show, Antone talked about the finale and everything he's done to get to there. In earlier episodes, he was mad at John for “playing the game.” Yet John’s reason was because he needed to protect himself from being voted out due to jealousy over his progress in the game. Antone’s game play helped him leap over better players – Jennifer, Joe, and Sunny.
And then Antone said he wasn't worried about John because he (Antone) used to be an NFL lineman. But we never saw a hardworking, professional athlete out of him when he was on the Ranch. Antone didn’t even do well in the marathon. He came in 8th place. That's not so great for a finalist who used to be a professional athlete.
Ramon was full of smack talk about how John and Antone will worry about each other and he'll just slide in under the radar and win the whole thing. The thing is, we've heard this smack talk from him before and he's never delivered. I just wish I knew what his weight was when they had that final weigh-in.
I can't wait to see everyone's final numbers and see where they all rank. I think that some of the contestants who were at home longer might actually have better numbers than Antone, Vinny or Ramon.
