I haven't had a chance to watch the finale, but now that I'm back from vacation I crunched the final numbers. Here are the stats and my observations:
Buddy 35.48% (when he quit)
Mark 32.65% (when he quit)
Kim S. 32.42%
Joe 2.34% (when he quit)
I was really hoping for Kim to win, but she really had nothing left to lose. She looked fantastic. Jeremy, OTOH, started with a higher BMI and looks like he still needs to lose another 10 - 20 pounds. I'm not surprised he ended up winning. He just had so much more room for weight loss.
I remember Mike being kind of abrasive when he was on the Ranch, but I saw a bit of a competitor in him. I'm not surprised he won the at-home prize.
Conda looked pretty good in the pictures I saw of her but my image of her is still marred from her ugly behavior on the show. Considering she was in the top 3, her weight loss should have been higher. Two episodes before the finale, Kim was at 41.67% and Conda was only at 33.67%. Conda couldn't even get her weight loss percentage as high as Kim's before leaving the Ranch. Emily and Cassandra were each less than 1% point behind Conda and they were eliminated a lot earlier. Conda probably needs to lose at least another 30 - 40 pounds. I don't see her doing it.
Emily, Cassandra and Roy all looked great in their "after" pictures. I love how they styled Roy. What a difference! I barely recognized Emily with that long hair.
Daphne did pretty well with her weight loss, considering everything that she went through. Adrian ended up being more of a boaster and still has a way to go. Chism also has a way to go. I wonder if Mark's quitting had any effect on him and his motivation.
I'm glad this season is finally over. I can't wait for the next season and hope it's a lot better.
