Red team--I thought Jillian was going :revenge: Melissa. Melissa has Mr. Red wrapped around her little finger. He thinks she is perfect and will do anything for her.
Oh, I think they've got each other wrapped around their respective fingers. I don't think she's any more irritating or manipulative than he is - notice how this week when she had to come up with a big number to save face his weight loss was pretty low? They're both playing the game.


Can someone explain how you throw a weigh-in, and why?

I'll do the why first - it's hard to keep pulling big numbers week after week, so if a team has immunity, the strategy is to somehow take it easy/lose less weight that week because you're not in danger of going home. The idea is that the following week, when a team needs to stay above the yellow line, they can manage a more dramatic weight loss.

The how - most of what I've heard has been water loading - making sure to go into the weigh-in having drunk a ton of water to inflate one's weigh-in. One can also slack off during the week, but that's way more obvious and clearly hard to do around Jillian and Bob. I'm sure someone could also be scarfing down everything in the kitchen and we're just not getting shown the footage, but I think that would be harder to shake off the following week.

Thanks for the explanations, oleada and gen :).

I missed this week's episode--can someone post (perhaps in spoiler tags) who went home and what was the Red Team's weight loss this week?

I know that Melissa lost 11 lbs this week and her husband lost either 5 or 6 lbs this week.

The green team was below the yellow line. The vote was 4-3 to send home Migdalia instead of Miggy. Migdalia asked to be sent home (there was big drama over that--long and short of it is she wanted to go home to be with her husband before he leaves for Afghanistan).

Melissa and Miggy exchanged some words after the weigh in. The green team was below the yellow line, even with the 2 lb weight disadvantage. Miggy told Melissa just what she thought of her, which, I'm sure is most all of the contestants, (plus Bob and Jillian) thought as well. The weight disadvantage still would have had them below the yellow line.

Well, NBC is showing the Olympics, so I'm sure there's a connection with that.

We saw a fast little bit of the Contestants visiting the Colorado Springs Training Centre during the First Episode and they were talking about some of the things they'd experience this season on TBL. Obvious tie in w/the NBC Olympic coverage on the last TBL episode before Vancouver. Looking forward to seeing what he has to do w/them. :)

I'll weigh in (heh..) about the episode a little later, but I gotta say next week looks awesome! I've been to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs a couple times and it's just the coolest thing... I'm glad the contestants will get to see it and will get a chance to work out with some Olympians!

Quick recap:

Miggy was sent to the hospital and ended up having her appendix removed. She was not pulled from the game, but is limited to walking as her only form of exercise.

The blue team and the yellow team returned to campus since day 1. They weighed in and the yellow team lost the most weight(11ish percent to 9% or so from the blue team), so they got to stay. The blue team will return for the finale weigh in. The yellow team was granted immunity for 2 weeks and, for this week, given the right to be the only vote for this week's elimination.

Michael (white team) won the immunity challenge, and the pink team came in last and were given a 2 pound disadvantage.

As far as the weigh in goes, the orange team was #1 for the week, the pink team had no problems overcoming their disadvantage and were 2nd or 3rd. Miggy was in the middle despite her limited exercise routine. Red was in last for much of the weigh in, up until the final team weighed in, which was the brown team. John fell behind them and thus below the yellow line, and was automatically eliminated since he was a team by himself.

Next week the teams travel to Colorado Springs to train with Olympians at the Training Center and 2 people will be sent home. Additionally, they showed a "+1" pop up on the scale, although it looked like they may have re-used footage from Melissa's weight gain in the 2nd week.

Aw, I liked John, I;m sorry he was eliminated. :(

So was the team that returned the two women? Or the father/daughter? I can't remember the shirt colors for them.

Miggy! :eek: glad she's ok and that she was able to rally.

Miggy! :eek: glad she's ok and that she was able to rally. She was really amazing. She couldn't do anything but walk, so the day after surgery (if you can believe it), she walked like 6 miles, then 18 miles the next day, and then 14 or so miles the day after that. I was happy she did so well with the weigh in.

Yay! I liked both of those teams in the first ep, but I'm really glad the yellow team in back. :)

The father especially was motivated and inspirational. Compared to the bad energy last week, this week was a nice change.
