Loser 9.14: Smells Like Fat

April 21, 2010 at 8:00 am 9 comments

I’m watching in real time tonight which is something I haven’t done in about 11 years. And I just polished off a plate of homemade beef fajita nachos. I made sure to finish before the show started. For two reasons really: 1) I don’t want to get sour cream on my keyboard and 2) I think Jillian can see me through the television.

Let’s get started!

Beautiful Alison Sweeney shows up to announce the temptation. “Ohhhh no.” The kitchen is closed and all meals (only during that day, dumb) will be eaten in this room upstairs. There’s healthy food and not-so-healthy food (aka: Food Chelsea Eats). Whoever eats the most calories at the end of the day gets the only vote. Sam and Koli decide that Koli is going to go for it. Sam thinks he’ll fall below the yellow line and he wants Koli to save him. Selfish much? “Real bacon. None of that turkey bacon.” Think they lost their Jennie-O sponsorship?

So far the only one eating a lot is Koli. Mike seems to be trying to trick Victoria into thinking he ate a lot.

Koli is eating A LOT. He had over 2000 for lunch alone. He’s not going to be happy when two nice people go below the yellow line and he has to be the bad guy. Haven’t you ever watched The Biggest Loser, Koli??? Bob and Jillian are going to be so mad at you and then the rest of the house is going to be mad at you. You could have at least avoided the chili dogs. Gross.

 Koli had 4164 calories. Ummm ewww. Did you see how he measured his ketchup in a measuring spoon?

Okay y’all, Mike is like a completely different guy. He’s like a grown up. He’s mature and funny. I really like him now. I’m really proud of him.

Okay so I’m not so mad at Koli right now. I love that he and Sam are working out in the middle of the night. He’s not about evil game play, he’s just about staying in the game. And that’s okay. He’s not malicious and he doesn’t thrive on power. He’s just a good guy. (I think.) I just hope that Sam doesn’t throw the weigh-in. THAT is malicious.

Here come Bob and Jillian. $20 say that they aren’t going to be on board with this. Oh yes, I’m right. Jillian is disgusted. Disgusted. Disgusted. But that’s okay because it’s time to work out. HOLT COW! Bob is punching Daris in the stomach while he’s holding weights above his head. He’s a beast.

Ashley is having a breakdown because she’s all alone now that Andrea is gone. It’s not easy for girls to be alone. It makes us sad.

Dr. H is back. Time to revisit the Know Your Number age thingy. This is always really boring for me. It’s cool because it’s showing that their bodies are truly changing for the better… that the work actually pays off. Strider bike thingy.

Challenge time! I love challenges! Especially when they involve bizarre cranes and cables. They have building blocks that they have to stack in order to get high enough to reach . The winner gets a one pond advantage. The last one gets a 1 pound disadvantage. Mike decides to give Ashley some pointers… turns out, his pointers aren’t great. It was a nice thought though. Mike is being an engineer and making a permanent structure! It’s neck and neck between Daris and Sam. GO DARIS! I’d like Daris to get more screen time. This season is all about gray and yellow. And he made it! Whoo hoo! So Daris gets a one pound advantage.

Victoria knocked half of her structure over and thought she was going to die. Yeah, no. You have ropes attached to you and 16 millions crew members standing around. YOU’RE FINE. O’Neal fell as he was trying to get down his structure. Everyone freaked out like he was paralyzed. Sheesh people, settle down.

Ashley looks like she is about to have a commercial. Something NEW in the house! How convenient. Yoplait Greek Yogurt. 14 grams of protein!!

O’Neal is back, nothing is broken. But something about bones and calcium and nerve pain. And luckily he has a Walgreens ice pack for his knee.

To the beach!! Gabriel Reece is there to work out with them and to advertise Starter. UGH! ENOUGH WITH THE ADS! So they run a bit and then play in the water. Booooring.

Back from commercial break and we learn that this one of the worst week’s of O’Neal’s life. His brother died. We knew this was coming so I’m not shocked. Very very sad still. He’s crushed, which is totally understandable. Jillian is making his box. They always do that to the most emotional person. He had a bit of a meltdown and started punching a machine. Then he went for a walk and cried some more. It’s not an easy thing to watch, but it’s life.

Weigh in time. Oh Ali, you’re cute.

Koli- 10 – 3.7% WOWZA! Not bad!!
Daris- 7 – 3.54% My fave.
Mike – 5 – 1.38% Not so bueno.
Ashley – 4 – 1.55% Ouchie! I hope it’s not Mike and Ashley…
Sam – 6 – 2.38% Well done.
Victoria – 1 – .37% And you’re going home.
O’Neal – 8 – 2.52% How in the WORLD??
Sunshine – 1 – .52% Well that’s not fun.

So it’s between Sunshine and Victoria, and it’s all up to Koli. Well OF COURSE it’s going to be Victoria going home. Koli is in love with O’Neal, he’d never do that to him. Plus, he just talked about how Victoria needs to step it up and work out like she really wants to be here. I only wonder what he’s going to say in his schpeal. Didn’t look like the girls said anything to Koli to fight for their spots. I wonder if they did but didn’t show it.

He voted Victoria off. He didn’t preface it with much of anything but he said that she needs to push. She needs to step it up. I agree, she does not.

Victoria is back in H-Town. (That means Houston.) Her momma is looking good! She went from 358 to 240, she looks great. Last week they didn’t show Andrea’s current weight… I wonder why. Ugh, really? A 24 Hour Fitness commercial! This Where She Is Now segment seems to be all about her mom. Weird. But I’m proud of her mom.

Next Week: The contestants are going to TEXAS. Yee Haw.

Otherwise, the last chance workout is uneventful.

    Shut up Koli, he is really grating on my nerves, first he accuses Stephanie of game play and then he accuses Victoria for not pushing, Koli are you not “playing the game,” by trying to keep some one there who does not need to be there, and sending some one home who does just because he is your cuz, and you did not have great weeks at first either, so just shut up, please. And you sent Victoria home because you have an alliance with Sunshine and O’Neal, not because of all that garbage you dribbled out all over the table, just shut up! Whew, glad I got that out.

    Yea, I felt bad for O’Neal, but I am soooo tired of the O’Neal and Sunshine show, please can we focus on some one else for a while?

    I liked Victoria and was sad to see her go, but she looked great in the end, and her mother is the bomb, she has done great at home, big kudos to her.

    And can we please have a make over week, I am so tired of the mop heads, please help them. Some body, any body.

    Jillian looked sooo scared when O’Neal started freaking out and hitting the machine. Poor guy – Sometimes I get REAL tired of him and Sunshine but I do *heart* him… I think he is a super good guy and great dad to Sunshine (at least from what we see… editing is key here).

    Totally agree – ENOUGH WITH THE ADS/COMMERCIALS/ETC… I get it that Yoplait, Walgreens, Brita, Ziploc, etc sponsor the show… You’ve told us repeatedly for 14 weeks… ENOUGH!

    And about the Where are They Now segment… it totally turned into a Where is Cherita segment… which is fine… I mean she didn’t spend even 24 hours on BL and look at her… but come on don’t steal your daughters thunder.

    The 24 hour scripted commercial with Victoria was awful… that poor poor man that works at 24 hour fitness is probably getting beat up today…..

    That’s it for me 🙂

    Happy Hump Day 🙂

    OK, I never really like Victoria all that much so it didn’t break my heart that she is gone. But I have to agree with Karen, I am really getting tired of the O’Neal and Sunshine show. And maybe it is just me but, Jillian doesn’t do sympathy all that well in my book.

    Maybe it is just me.

    I heard turkey bacon & regular bacon have the same fat/calorie content, or something like that. Can someone confirm? I’d like more bacon in my life.

    I was crying pretty good when O’Neal was saying goodbye to his brother. Oh Biggest Loser YOU TOY WITH MY EMOTIONS.

    Victoria & her screaming with the whole thing…. yeah. I mean, I’m scared of heights but come on. You’re all strapped in & you’re like 6′ from the ground. OH BROTHERRR.

    That was a good episode though. Michael is in love with Koli & Sam.

    They’re pretty close actually. There’s less fat in turkey bacon, but there’s also more calories. There’s 4.5 grams of fat and 61 calories in 1 oz of turkey bacon vs. 4.7 grams of fat and 50 calories in regular bacon. Oh, and there’s less cholesterol in regular bacon. Also, that’s 1 oz of it, cooked. I found it on The Calorie Counter.

    Oh and Chelsea, they should totally pay you for this. Their sponsors should pay you too. But that’s just my opinion. NBC probably doesn’t hold that very high.

    I was so proud of O’Neal!!! He just seems like a sweet guy, kind of like Coach Mo (I think that’s his name). I thought it was weird that they were all about the mom too-odd…

  • 7. thedailychelle  |  April 21, 2010 at 11:53 am

    I kind of want to marry Sam. How tall is he??

    Finally watched the DVR. Good episode…thought Koli was crazy at first for wanting that responsibility of having the only vote but it turned out ok for him. I also agree, Michael has really grown on me! He is so nice to everyone and funny! I LOVED seeing Victoria’s Mom. She did ALL of that at home! GOOD FOR YOU MOMMA!!! (I bet she doesn’t get to eat fajita nachos though) 😦

    Did you see the article on Yahoo yesterday about Jillian? She’s saying she will adopt her child because she just couldn’t do that to her body. Now they are saying Jillian has body image issues herself. You think?
