Sap Fest! Sap Fest! Sap Fest! That was basically all last night's episode of The Biggest Loser was. A lot of "living my life now, "making the right decisions", and "finding the balance" crap was spouted for what was possibly the longest two hours of the season. Let me quit my bitching and give you the rundown.
The night began with all 4 of the contestants heading home for a month. At the end of that month they would have to return to the Ranch for a weigh in to determine the final 3. Everyone had trouble at home. I compare it to an addict (lets face it they are) going home from rehab. Anyway a few days in, each contestants receives a challenge box. They all have to finish a marathon. They had 26 days to train for 26 miles. Helen and Tara ran for a good portion of their marathon. Mike had to walk (he hurt his hip training and was mad as hell) and of course Ron walked (with a cane). All 4 were determined to finish. And all 4 finished. It took Ron a long, long (long, long) time but he completed the 26 miles.
Next up was the weigh in. With the final three on the line both Ron and Mike pulled decent numbers but it was not enough. Both members of the Brown team fell below the yellow line. So now America has to decide if Ron or Mike should compete in the live finale'. Ron of course urged everyone to vote for Mike (Mike has a better chance to win) while Mike said he would be happy with either choice (yeah right).
The finale' is next week and we will find out who is this years Biggest Loser. I can't decide who I want to win...still. I can't stand Helen and every time she speaks I cringe and fast forward. Tara has worked hard I know but she too seems so full of herself. If not for the scheming of his father, Mike seems like a genuinely nice 18 year old with some integrity. And Ron, well what can you say about Ron (the Godfather)? He has played the game, well. Till next week I guess. I am thinking...Go Mike (maybe).
