The Biggest Loser Recap: The Biggest Disappointment

Was anyone else a little disappointed/confused with The Biggest Loser last night?

I don't know, something was just off about the episode last night. I felt they sped through it and that the personal touch, something I love about the show, was completely lost. Kim completely lost her cool and was not acting like the supportive trainer that I had thought she was. Now I understand why you guys didn't pick Kim as the trainer you'd most like to have. Hollie, from the Black Team, made the decision to visit home to be by her mother's side, who was battling cancer. In the end Phil, the guy who I thought was going to win it all, sadly got the boot. iVillage got caught up with Phil after the show, and while you're at it, check out Sunny's interview with Jim, last week's loser.

Usually a bunch of great tips and tokens about losing weight are offered throughout the show, and I outline them here for you guys. Last night however, not so much. This is all I got from the show — Chew gum while preparing meals so that you don't snack before you eat. A decent tip, but I expected more.

What did you guys think about the show? Was the episode weird to you or was that just my take on it?

whats her face, the black girl with the ridiculous blue contacts needed to go home NOT PHIL, and the red team is completely going to be picked off now, idiots! Loved the "chew gum while preparing meals, MY FAVORITE is ...." Jill should have lifted the gum up and just looked right at the camera.. Is anyone just grossed out by Jez and his skin hanging off?

I thought it was off as well, maybe it was the shorter ep though. Maybe it'll pick up next week.

I can't believe they went to a tie. Your right, the show last night was very odd. I couldn't put my finger on it, I just didn't vibe like usual.

I thought it was boring, too. I barely watched it, and I was PISSED they kicked Phil off, I really liked him. :tread:

My mom and I always text throughout the show and we were both disappointed. Do they really have to spend THAT long on the weigh-in and kickoff? It was sooo boring and over dramatic. Ugh, we both decided that the best part is the last five mins (when you get to see the person 'today') so we may just start watching that.

Sucks that Phil left. And the show is becoming more boring than ever.... And Kim yelling was..... hmmmm... BAD.

It seemed weird because the weigh-in and voting took 30 minutes! Withe the show being reduced to 1 hour, that means that they had to squeeze the "show" into 30 minutes. You can always tell who is going to be kicked off, it's one of the people they spotlighted ton the show. Since the only ones singled out this week were Phil and Cowboy, and Cowboy couldn't be voted off, you knew this was coming. The product placement last night was laughable.

It was a depressing show last night! I loved phil, he MADE the red team. Hollies mom dies, Kim was just bad. Hopefully they pick it up next week!

I'm glad they kicked off Phil. He is strong. He can totally lose the weight by himself... He just needed the motivation to get started. And I've never like Kim as a trainer. She's inconsistent... "Peaches and cream" one week... Then an unsupportive bi-atch the next. Jillian is a bi-atch all the time, but at least she's supportive and consistent.

Jillian all the way, I cannot stand Kim! And I totally agree on last nights show not being motivating like usual at all.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY LET PHIL GET KICKED OFF!!! "Let" being the operative word because they didn't even chose him themselves! Jillian is awesome by the way! She makes Kim look second rate. Interesting how both last and AND this year, Kim is the only trainer who has personality clashes with people on her team.

Oh, and Jez is looking great! He's now one of my favorites. I was so happy for him - first time in a DECADE that he's been under 300? Good on ya Jez! :scale:

I was so tired that I fell asleep during the first 5 minutes. I tried to stay awake, but I was too damn tired!

I was so shocked with the gum product placement! Jeez. Then with the commercial for it right after. BOO! I knew Phil was going home, that setup was too leading. I really wanted Amy to go. She's been bugging me and doesn't seem to want it as badly as the others. I was very sad for Hollie but glad she decided to go home and was able to be with her Mom when she passed. As for Kim, she doesn't have what it takes to pull off her behavior last night. If it was Jillian while Dave was on the treadmill, it would have been so different. He would have respected her instruction. With Kim it's like, when did you decide to grow a pair? Too late for that lady!

Yeah last night was bizarre. They really didnt show much of anything other than the challenge, weigh in, and kicking phil off. Usually there is more of a theme or more shots of the workout etc. I am glad someone else got a weird vibe!

I agree about Kim, she was incredibly hard on cowboy last night. there are many ways to motivate and support people. plus maybe he was feeling down about missing his family or was sore from the day before. Any of these things could affect how you work out and to have someone yelling over your shoulder is so not motivating. Especially when she cussed at him! That would have pissed me off too. Also I would like to have seen a resolution between cowboy and kim...what happened after that? did they talk? Oh and Miriam I agree with you about the weighin and the replay thing. There isn't a need to do that!

I missed it!! We moved and don't have cable yet UGGHHHH. But I am really blown away that Phil got the boot. I hope there's a rerun this week. I thought he would go much further. I wonder who's gonna win this thing. Crazy.

I agree it was weird. I was studying while I watched it and was never compelled to look up from my notes. It's not every day that Native American literature interests me more than my fave reality TV show.

It was an odd show last night. Although I was thankful it was shorter. I mean 45 minutes to weigh everyone is ridiculous and I always hate when they come back from a commercial and replay the 2 minutes that were played before the commercial. But it did seem like boom boom boom from one thing to another.
