I wanted Kim to win the Newmanís Own challenge, but I knew that Mark had a better strategy for the challenge. I didnít think that Kim would need the 1# advantage but I also thought that Mark wouldnít need it either. Who would have guessed that things would turn out the way they did?
Then, on the second challenge, I started worrying that Conda was the winner. In all of her confessionals, she was so upbeat and happy. She was positive that she was going to win the challenge. I thought for sure she had won. I laughed so hard at Conda when Kim won.
I agree with Antone that Chris was making excuses. Chris knew the chicken needed time to cook thoroughly. She should have started it right away. Jeremy was just frying some bananas in a pan. She could have asked him to switch burners. He probably wouldnít have cared. He had no clue what he was doing and no illusions that he would win.
And if Jeremy wouldnít switch with Chris, she could have pulled the chicken from the pan, sliced it down the middle most of the way, and then spread it out in the pan. With a thinner piece of chicken and more of it exposed to the pan surface, she could have sped up the cooking. Then she could have tried to piece it back together with the filling. It may not have looked as nice but at least the judges would have had something that they could taste.
Once again, Dolvett made me laugh when he took his team outside the campus to a Zumba class. Buddy was also hysterical. Who knew he had such moves! Megan and Conda seemed to struggle on the hills when they went on the bike ride. I donít know if it was a matter of editing, but I wonder if Bob explained to them that when going up a hill they should shift to a lower gear BEFORE it gets too hard to pedal. As someone who has had to walk a bike up a hill because I didnít shift in time, I know how discouraging that can be.
I couldnít believe that Mark didnít lose any weight this week. He got lucky that Megan got voted out and he still has a chance for the money and title. I was surprised that Allison announced at the weigh in that Kim is now the biggest loser on campus. I wonder if that puts target on her back.
Megan weighed 191 when she left the ranch. When they showed her at home, she weighed 189. Was it a short period of time between her leaving or is she not losing weight at home? I think itís probably the latter. When we saw her video diary for Bob and saw how much she was working out on her own, it surprised me that she only lost 4 pounds by the time they had the weigh-in. Something is going on with her that sheís still not losing the weight that she should be losing.
One final note: I think itís funny how they were pitting Dolvett against Bob in the beginning of the season. But now Dolvettís team is kicking Bobís teamís butt. In Bobís defense, he has the 3 worst losers on his team, but if heís the magical Bob Harper that everyone makes him out to be, he should be able to figure out how to make them lose more weight.
