I was glad that all 3 teams got to read their letters. The video chats were really emotional. Something tells me that there's something going on in John's past that we'll be hearing about in an upcoming episode. He's a bit of a mystery. He's a jerk sometimes but then he got so emotional on his video chat. He's been pushing really hard and is currently in the lead. Bob even made a comment about John not stopping until the confetti from the finale is in his hair.
I like how Bonnie makes jbug think about getting on the treadmill. I was on the treadmill last night watching the first hour of TBL. I was feeling kind of tired from my 20-mile bike ride on Sunday and was going to quit early. Then they showed Bonnie doing 3.3 on the treadmill. So I figured if Bonnie could push herself, I could push myself too. I did my full workout and pushed my last two sprints up to 6.0.
And, jbug, stay away from Dolvett. That man is mine. I agree that the red team has some obstacles that are holding them back. I can understand why the middle-aged contestants have gained weight. But for people that young to gain so much weight, there has to be emotional issues. Dolvett is definitely trying to work them hard physically but he's got to deal with those emotional obstacles first. He seems aware of the emotional issues and is trying to tackle them.
It's interesting that Jennifer Ė with her knee injury - has lost a higher percentage than everyone on the red team, everyone on the blue team, and Sunny and Joe on her own team. I was a little sad that Mike went home. His 4 week percentage is 13.27% while Bonnieís was only 8.27%. She hasnít even cracked the double digits yet. But part of me agrees that Becky and Bonnie need to be there more than Mike.
I like the statistics because they show us stuff that the editing doesnít show. Game play sometimes eliminates people who are doing much better than other players. I was annoyed with last seasonís editing because they kept shoving Olivia and Hannah in our faces. We all know now why their edit was so heavy.
Hereís how they ranked as a whole for the week:
And how they rank to-date:
Mike 13.27% ELIMINATED
I got sliced!
