    So any Biggest Loser fans on here?

    I love the BL, especially trainer Jillian Michaels (and Bob of course). Can't believe NBC are starting the new season like 2 weeks after the finale of the last one, but I do love the show so I'm actually quite happy. icon_lol.gif

    Not sure about the idea of couples, will be interesting to see how that changes things.

    I find it fascinating. I've actually been watching some of the "Biggest Loser" marathon on Bravo today. But, sheesh, they do cry a lot ....

    It was season 2, where Matt won. The finalists all looked amazing in the end.

    Interesting twist this season (couples).

    I wished they'd found a way to work Kim back into the mix. She wasn't my favorite trainer, but I did like her. Maybe she'll come back with a surprise team like Jillian did last season.

    I like to watch the last show... the entire season I usually won't watch unless nothing else is on. I think I just like to be surprised with how much weight everyone has lost at the end. One of the a couple of the guys from last season were HOT once they lost the weight. I don't know names but there were a couple I was like, damn...

    To be honest I didn't think the whole couple thing was going to work, but it was really good. Normally it takes me a couple of episodes to start routing for a particular person or group of people, but the whole couple dynamic really seemed to help us get to know them really quickly. I'm liking the young couple that don't really know each other, plus Betty-Sue, she made me laugh. Can see there being quite a bit of drama and arguments between the groups too, which is always good TV.icon_lol.gif Definately my fave BL season premiere to date.

    As for Kim, well I guess with it being couples NBC probably felt teams of two, lets go with two trainers, but you have to wonder if she's on the outs with NBC. I'm sure if we took a poll amongst fans/viewers, Kim probably doesn't fare that well. I do like her, but she seems to wind up some of the her team. On her first season she fell out with one of her contestants and again this past season. I'd like to see her back, but if its her or Jillian, then give me Jillian anyday .. she kicks arse!

    Anyone see this weeks episode? I was so hoping it would have been Neil and Amanda (the white team) going home, while Amanda puts in the effort and deserved to stay, Neil just needs bitch-slapping! I so wanted Jillian to just giving him a beating! icon_twisted.gif

    BTW, anyone else getting a sense of deja vu with the Jay and Mark (black team) and Bill and Jim, last season winners? brothers again and winning all the challenges. Because of their size I can see them being safe most weeks and unless someone has the sense to take them out, they are going to sail through to the finale and take the title/prize!
