Did last season scare everyone away? I didn't bother watching any of it - no Jillian, Anna Kournikova as a trainer, why bother? - and it sounds like it was kind of a dud with Bob's team winning everything.
But I'm back this season And kinda liking Dolvett - although he needs to lay off the teeth whitener a bit I like that they're back to playing individually, even though there's astill a team component. Favorites so far are Emily (former heavyweight lifter), Santa Roy and Buddy. Last night made me love Cassandra as well. And I'm rooting for Team Aqua to make it back in the game - I wonder if they know once they're in the game they won't be competing as a team? Probably not...but they seem competitive so I think they'll be fine.
Of course, Conda has been a total bitch from week 1. She certainly makes for good television (since everyone else seems pretty lovey dovey), but I can't believe Dolvett didn't throw in a few "No Excuses!!!" when she was whining that Cassandra cheated in that first head-to-head challenge. I can only imagine that he did toss her a few, but TPTB are saving it all for next week. So glad Cassandra blew her out of the water in both the rematch and at the weigh in. Having Cassandra be the person with the highest overall weight loss in the house now just provided an extra burn
But WHAT is up with the quitters?!? I know Ben didn't technically quit, but to me, asking to be sent home (in the 1st week no less!!!!!!!!) is just quitting in a way that doesn't hurt the rest of your team. But then Joe can't even wait a couple more days to do the same thing and penalizes the rest of his team in a competition. What a jerk! I'm glad the black team was able to win this week anyway. I'm guessing that Joe won't be at the finale, like Rulon Gardner 2 seasons ago. I was surprised they even showed him getting a call from Bob at home, but I guess Bob wanted an opportunity to have his say
Is anyone with me this season?!?
