Loser 8.04: But I WANT The Sauce!

October 7, 2009 at 8:46 am 22 comments

First of all, I want to apologize for not addressing the cussing issue last week. I did forget to mention that there were only 4 curse words the entire program. But one was in reference to sprinkles, so I can understand how it may have slipped out. And the other 3 were in reference to Tracey… and quite honestly, I’m not sure how there weren’t more. This week there were only two. Doing well NBC, doing well.

Starting off- Tracey is a liar. Shay is mad. Moving on.

Jillian is not happy that the red team sacrificed themselves. I see their point, everyone NEEDS to be there and you need to see your importance. But I support their decision and think they were brave and respectful.

During one of the workouts, we saw them doing group arm workouts. Have they done his before? Maybe they have and haven’t shown us. Seems like they are placing a much bigger emphasis on the team this year. Maybe because the drama was a bit too intense last season and they didn’t want it quite so cut-throat. Or maybe they just thought it was funny to show all of them in a circle lifting weights. Who really knows? 

How long are we going to talk about how America voted for Amanda? Last I checked, I didn’t vote for either. So either start saying “America (besides that Chelsea girl with the blog) voted for me!” or just quit talking about it.

Jillian decided to have a therapy session with Julio in the gym. He seemed to have a minor break-through. I guess it’s possible that those were manufactured tears so Jillian would GET OFF HIS BACK! Although if I were on the show, I’d start randomly crying and having breakthroughs so that she’d stop yelling at me and making me run. Also, what’s up with her t-shirts that show off her guns?

Tracey met with Dr. H to talk about her health. Something about some numbers went up. I’m not really sure. Tracey cried and Dr. H didn’t look too upset. He told her she couldn’t work out at all. Hey NBC, sabotage?? Also, um, Tracey called herself a panther. That’s weird… and not entirely true.

Contestants gather and the kitchen is under lock down. Alison told them that they have to order out each meal. To which my mom says, “It’s a bit early for that!” And once again I say, “Sabotoge!!!”

They had a quiz: Which meal is prepared the healthiest way? It actually seemed pretty tough. There were combinations of drinks, chicken, veggies, and desserts. The brown team, pink team, and orange team won that. For a tie breaker they had to guess how many calories were in the meal. The winner won a year’s worth of groceries, which sounds pretty fantastic to me! The pink team won. And then Alison did a commercial about The Biggest Loser Simple Swap book. Seriously, how many products are out there with the Biggest Loser name on it? HEY BIGGEST LOSER, you should pay me. We should keep a count of how many people I’ve forced encouraged to watch the show and then got hooked.

Watching the contestants order dinner over the phone was HILARIOUS. I felt awful for the restaurant. “I want fruit but only berries”… “I want salad but no dressing”… “No salt please”… “Don’t cook my food in butter”… on and on. And of course the orders were all wrong. So they told Bob and Jillian all about their food drama and played with packets of Extra Sugar Free gum. So Bob and Jillian decide to take them out on a date to teach them how to order food. At a Mexican restaurant?! And what is the best part of a Mexican restaurant? The therapy session of course!!

So nobody brought their calorie counter to the restaurant which Bob and Jillian weren’t pleased about. They tore apart their choices. My favorite part was when Liz said, “But I wantthe sauce!!!” And my least favorite part ws when Jillian said the word “fructose” … frucktose??

They went to the challenge. My dad decided that the crazy contraption over the water looked pretty ridiculous. “Being someone that plans these games is like planning Wipeout for fat people.” I think that’s a fair statement. The problem with these games is that it’s really hard to describe. So if you didn’t watch, I’m sorry if this doesn’t transfer. The contestants laid on a platform that was suspended over water. They held onto handlebars and the platform tipped so they were holding themselves onto the platform. If they let go, they fell into the water. It made my hands hurt just to watch! I LOVE the orange team. Shay fell off after 10 minutes with only 3 other people still playing along with her. When she fell, Daniel yelled, “Shay, I’m proud of you.” It got down to Allen and Daniel. I love them both, what would have happened if they let go at the same time? They should try that sometime!! But in the end Daniel won. Love that guy!

Last chance workout (at the beginning of hour 2?? sheesh! one reason that I can’t wait until there are fewer contestants so we get more challenges…) The trainers worked them extra hard since they didn’t know what they ate this week. Jillian was BRUTAL to Rudy. Do yall like how the camera shakes when the contestants jump or drop a weight? Yeah, nice effects NBC! Ha. Liz is so cute, “I can DO this!” she yelled as she jumped and fell off the stool.

Coach Mo was doing some crazy stuff. According to Julio, “Coach Mo is like an old warrior.” He looked like he hurt his back pretty bad. He went outside and talked about quitting but Bob called him out on it and it turned out that he was being a bit dramatic about it. The mood music changed and he triumphantly limped back into the gym. 

At the weigh-in the contestants share how much they hated the food situation. Then they got started on the fun part. Orange team went up first and Daniel didn’t lose any weight. Of course I expected that since they had immunity. But he CLAIMS that it wasn’t strategy. For the record, I don’t believe him. Rudy lost 11 pounds this week which is incredible. He’s lost 64 pounds so far in this game. Let me repeat myself. Rudy has lost 64 pounds in 4 weeks.

WHAT THE HECK is wrong with Tracey??? She limps up the stairs to the scale. That woman! Her hair is a hot mess and she cries to Alison. Bless Alison for looking so concerned during the sob-fest. Must be all of her soap opera experience… she’s highly trained at false emotion. How in the WORLD did Tracey lose 4 pounds? I revisit the idea that she may be a witch. And I agree with Shay. It’s not fair that someone who is not allowed to work out is taking up a spot on the show. But alas, they were above the yellow line.

Something weird happened. Julio lost 4 pounds. Bob smiled. Julio said he was proud of the 4 pounds he lost. Alison wasn’t pleased with that response so she said, “But still….?” And he responds, “It is what it is, Alison.” Seems like there is something about Julio that they know and we don’t. Which isn’t a good sign since he ended up below the yellow line with the brown team.

Dear black team and brown team,
This is NOT the worst case scenario. We do not agree with that assessment. Last week was worst case scenario. It would be worse case scenario if the green team and orange team were below. That is all.
The most loyal Loser fan,

So the teams debated and went to the elimination room. I was shocked at how many emotions were flying in that room. It seems that a lot of bonds were made. This is another reason I can’t wait until there are fewer contestants, we learn more about the PEOPLE. But it was a close call. Coach Mo ended up caving in to Tracey’s decision (surprise surprise) and were the final vote in voting Julio off the island. Oh wait, that’s another show. Off the ranch.

He went from 407 pounds to 299 pounds. Pretty good. But I watched it on my parents’ DVR so I didn’t get to see the “next week on The Biggest Loser.” Can yall help me out? What’s the teaser?

Sorry if this recap wasn’t very cohesive. I watched it on DVR and typed notes as I watched, which doesn’t always work well. Plus, I was distracted by this little tootsie roll monster.

    Okay, so I am confused at what the “strategy” would have been with Daniel? How is not losing weight “strategy”? Explain it to the Biggest Loser newbie.

    Next week: there’s some game where whoever wins, they get to pick the teams (starting next week, it’s 1/2 v. 1/2, black v. brown). The teaser makes it look like, surprise, Tracey wins and gets to choose the teams. Everyone is gasping and crying and looking overall distraught. So who knows….

  • 2. Karen  |  October 7, 2009 at 9:50 am

    Love the tootsie roll monster. LOL

    Not much excitement last night, I agree Daniel is playing the game, surprised that he could lie with a straight face. May be he is getting some coaching from Tracey. Jillian seems to be more tensed at the weigh-ins this season, she has went off at each one so far. lol I am glad that Tracey is still on the show, too many nice people there, she brings drama and suspense, like I said, boring with out it.
    I understand what Shay is saying about Tracey, but the goal is to loose weight and Tracey did just as well and even better than some even though she could not workout, she deserves a kudo for that. Just one.
    Sorry to see Julio go, but he looked great in the end, and his attitude seemed to be better at home.
    I don’t remember any thing about next week, not sure what I was doing, but I missed it also.

  • 3. Karen  |  October 7, 2009 at 9:56 am


    The goal with not loosing any weight is that next week, if the strategy works out, is that he will have a bigger percentage loss and a better chance to not fall below the yellow line. It could backfire, but most of the time it works towards their advantage.

  • 4. Darla  |  October 7, 2009 at 10:02 am

    what kind of dog is that? SO cute! (I had to skip to the pic b/c I haven’t watched the show on my DVR yet!)

  • 5. Lindsay  |  October 7, 2009 at 10:02 am

    MOLLLY!!!! she’s so cute. I come home TOMORROW!!! I know that has nothing to do with the Biggest Loser, but I feel that everyone should know that I COME HOME TOMORROW!!!

  • 6. Chelsea Hurst  |  October 7, 2009 at 11:08 am

    Hello all-

    1. Darla, Molly is a shih-tzu. She is precious and we love her!

    2. I forgot to add that I think there may be a possibility that Tracey is a “stunt” from NBC. I’ll share more thoughts and feelings on that during Friday’s Quick Takes.

  • 7. Megan  |  October 7, 2009 at 11:37 am

    There is SO much drama this season!! I never figured out what Tracey’s health problem is, or what those “numbers” meant. Didn’t she lose, like, 11 pounds last week? And 4 this week, when all she did was sit? I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s eating only fruits and veggies or sticking her finger down her throat. There’s no way she could still lose weight!!! Not to mention, she’s just plain crazy and evil. I don’t like her one bit!

  • 8. Caroline  |  October 7, 2009 at 12:27 pm

    I despise Tracey and Shay is really starting to wear on me. Coach Mo and Dan should totally team up together. And if they were smart, they would have gotten rid of the brown team…two less people to compete against.

  • 9. Ashley  |  October 7, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    I can NOT stand tracey!!!! She annoys the heck out of me every time I watch the show. I wish she would get kicked off asap. Did you see the previews for next week? It looks so good!

  • 10. Lauren From Texas  |  October 7, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    I QUICKLY scrolled down to the end without reading ANYTHING, only to see the picture of Molly! What willpower I have. The episode is still sitting in my DVR, fresh and waiting to be viewed. SIGH.

  • 11. DebbieQ  |  October 7, 2009 at 2:55 pm

    All I can say is…Tracy must go! If she does that googly eye thing one more time I am going to come unglued. And also, if she is still unable to work out at all after all this time then why is she still there? Good bye, sayonara, see you later, don’t let the dumbbell hit you on the way home.

  • 12. osarah  |  October 7, 2009 at 2:59 pm

    We noted the “frucktose” thing as well and giggled and the triumphant music as Coach Mo walked back into the gym. And you’re right what is with Tracy’s hair? It always looks like she just woke up from a nap.

  • 13. Autumn  |  October 7, 2009 at 3:07 pm

    “Wipeout” for fat people! Oh my word! That has me laughing! I knew there was something just wrong about that last night… I couldn’t find the right words to say it! But you did!

  • 14. Kelly  |  October 7, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    I missed most of the first hour, but it was still great!

    Maybe they are putting an emphasis on teams because there is goign to be a big shake up next week? I think that was part of next week’s teaser, but now I can’t remember.

    The way they were ordering their meals over the phone… a little too rude. Maybe you WILL get that dressing on the side. But guess what you will also get? A giant spit wad in your salad. Don’t ever talk that way to someone about to prepare your food.

    And it’s official. Tracey is KA-RAZY.

    Great re-cap. 🙂

  • 15. Lemonade Gal  |  October 7, 2009 at 5:08 pm

    Thanks for visiting. I cannot stand that Tracey! I find myself shouting at the TV, “Shut up! Just quit talking!” Every time she is on my screen. She is a big loser in another way!!!!
    Can you tell, I have issues with her?!? 🙂

  • 16. d.a.r.  |  October 7, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    I love your recaps!!! Seriously, Tracey is so flippin’ obnoxious! And can she blink?? Please?!?

  • 17. breadwinner wife  |  October 7, 2009 at 8:55 pm

    thanks for your comment on my blog!
    i love this show so much! i really appreciate that they have the “how are they doing” update after someone is eliminated, because the eliminations are so emotional. it’s good to end on a positive note 🙂

  • 18. Lauren From Texas  |  October 7, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    Just watched and read! Michael is all, “what is so funny!” I said: Chelsea writes a summary each week of The Biggest Loser. It’s like The Soup, only a blog, and only about the Biggest Loser. You are hilarious. 🙂

    This week wasn’t my favorite. But my Wordless Wednesday picture is sure to please you.

  • 19. Cio  |  October 8, 2009 at 12:19 am

    omg. if Tracy is a “stunt” person…that’s REALLLLLLY mean. Especially ESPECIALLY for Coach Mo.
    I would really like to know how she lost 4 lbs , without exercising.
    maybe she IS a witch.

  • 20. Amber Warren  |  October 12, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Mo is a baby. Tracy is completely un-self-aware. Julio looks good now that is jowls don’t shake when he talks. Jilian seems perma-pissed off.

    But what concerns me most right now is how low the numbers are for weight loss. Is this usual for the beginning? It’s super disappointing as a viewer (i know, selfish me) to watch someone drop like 4 pounds. Thank goodness for Rudy. But seriously? Shay? Why are you not losing any weight? It bothers me.

  • 21. Debbie  |  October 16, 2009 at 4:02 pm

    yep, super late as usual…you know i watch these so delayed, but i still look forward to reading your post! mostly because its exactly my thoughts. like how it was totally a sabotage and NBC definitely wants tracy gone. not working out (even walking!) until further notice then it just so happens the kitchens closed?!

    i about peed my pants listening to them place orders over the phone. hi-larious!

    and i about die every time the camera shakes from someone jumping or throwing a weight…awesome. 🙂
