I would be excited also if Cassandra and Emily came back.
I am thinking that Buddy and Mark may have left for a sense of honor. They may have had enough of the producers telling them stuff, like, "America does not like you", etc. Maybe they have enough money and just want to save face and show that there is more to their lives than the grand prize. I think they have realized that their image is not real hot, and to leave before they make it worse attacking the comebacks may be a good thing.
I am really glad Kim won the car. She probably cannot win the finale without going postal and anorexic. I am glad she won something. She has 5 percent on Conda, from the looks of it that will not be enough.
I do not think Jeremy is out of it just yet. It looks like he may be competing with the others who are trying to come back. I believe that three will be chosen. He will very likely be one of them.
If Jeremy does not make it back, then this last weigh in was a game changer for sure. He was a shoe in with Buddy gone. If he cannot win his way back, then an at home person will likely win it. It cannot be too hard to beat Conda. Kim is maxed out.
This is the first show in how many weeks? that has me wishing to see next week. Their desertion was good for ratings anyway.
Kim 9%? Maybe last week she drank water and lost more than 2 lbs.? Maybe she took a water pill? That percentage of wt. loss is unreasonable. I do not believe it is at all healthy, and likely not legal. I like her anyway, but, something is up. Maybe she wore ankle weights to the last weigh in, and hoped she would not be voted off. No idea how she did it, and a good magician never reveals. But, she did not lose fat, I can tell you that much for sure. I would not be at all surprised if she gains some next week.
So, Grits, good luck with recording it I guess. It may be a fun one or a yawn, depends on who makes it back.
