I thought it was weird the way they started the show by showing the camera crew running around trying to find everyone, but they didn’t show how the contestants found out about the returning players or the discussion they had that led to them wanting to quit. Then, when the crew told Bob what was going on, he said it made no sense because players are brought back every single season.
Mark said that he watched for years and he’s never seen this. I haven’t watched every season, but I do remember that last season Ramon won a spot in the finale by winning the marathon. He beat the contestants who were still on the Ranch at the time. So I guess Mark wasn’t paying attention all that hard when he watched last season. Mark thought it was unfair that someone who was voted out could come back into the game. Mark needs to remember that some of those people were voted out because of GAME PLAY because the rest of them wanted the $250K, not because those people were slackers who weren’t busting their butts as hard as (or harder than) the contestants who voted them out.
I thought it was really funny when they met with the lawyer who pointed out that the contract specifically said that eliminated players would be brought back to participate in a challenge to win a spot in the finale. I loved the look on Jeremy’s face when the lawyer pointed out the specific language and he suddenly realized he had screwed up. I wish they had shown the other 4 when the language was pointed out to them. Those 5 really had no valid argument.
Kim said she wants to compete with the people who deserve it, and the people who deserve it are the people in this house right now. In my opinion, Conda DOES NOT deserve to be there. She’s skated her way into the final 5. In my opinion, Cassandra is a good example of someone who deserves to be there but was eliminated due to game play. I would throw in Emily as well.
Buddy was upset that someone that’s been home hanging out with their kids for 8 weeks could win the game. Mark was also upset that someone could come in and win it all. Allison pointed out that they get a home, food, and training while at the Ranch. The contestants that these 5 people eliminated don’t get any of that. Personally, I think that if an eliminated player can overcome all the obstacles of training at home and beat someone who has had extended time at the Ranch, then all the more power to them. Why are they so worried that someone who was eliminated could come from behind and beat them at the finale? I can understand why Conda would be worried. She was below a lot of the eliminated players when they were at the Ranch. She’s probably afraid they’re still working out just as hard and could easily beat her.
They showed their journeys and the edits were pretty decent. They included Conda’s eyerolling so that Bob could talk about how much Conda has changed. But then at the weigh in when Jeremy got eliminated, Conda started ranting that Jeremy deserved to be there. She said that Kim didn’t deserve to be there. Kim has been ahead of Jeremy every single week except last week. Conda has been down near the bottom every single week. So I guess Conda hasn’t changed all that much. Good thing she has Bob in her fan club.
With all the drama going on, I was surprised they posted such great weight loss numbers. I wonder how that happened? I was happy that Kim won the car, especially since Conda was driving around in it then dragging it around the Ranch with her harness. And Kim was so gracious when she acknowledged that Dolvett was a big part of her success.
Statistics to date:
Yes, Conda was right about one thing – Jeremy does deserve to be in the finale. But she misspoke when she said Kim doesn’t deserve to be there. I think she meant to say “Conda” doesn’t deserve to be in the finale.
Next week should be really interesting.
I got sliced!
