Yesterday marked the beginning of season 15.
This is the link for it if you missed it: http://www.nbc.com/the-biggest-loser/video/second-chances/n41139/
I wonder how hard it was to pick contestants! They all had touching stories, i nearly cried for some. Its crazy what some of these people have to push through in addition to losing weight but i am glad they have the courage to attempt to put their disappointments aside and make changes.
Ruben studdard!!! heaviest contestant this time around weighing 462pounds, crazy. He says people call him BIG REU and he will love to go back to plain REUBEN without the BIG. I cant wait to see this happen and see his transformation. However Reuben, that back hair tho????? It has got to go dude! Book a spa date or something lol
Who else has a crush on Dolvett??? my lips are sealed here lol. Tanya does haha, cant blame her tho, who wouldn’t?
There was a challenge on twitter on how many squats you could do during a commercial and of course yours truly had to jump in, 121 squats yayyy. i got a shout from @biggestloser on twitter too. Go CSG!!!! I think exercise during commercials is such a great idea, i didnt know commercials were that long. Plus it helps those who claim they dont have enough time to exercise but can sit through a whole tv show (rolling my eyes now)
One story that touched me was Tanya’s, she was 125 pounds overweight due to excessive eating during pregnancy and thus her baby was overweight and now she feels because of her, the baby may have childhood diabetes and grow up obese with many health conditions. Thus i love her drive to make a difference for her child.
The coaches also picked their teams today:
Team jilian in white: Craig, Tumi, Jay, Fernanda, Marie: Total weight loss 71pounds and 4.73% weight loss. They lost the least making Craig the one with the least weight loss.
Team Dolvett in red: Reuben, Jennifer, Rachel, Tanya, David. They lost a total of 107 pounds, 6.45% weight loss. They lost the most!
Team Bob in blue: Holly, Hap, Chelsea, Matt, Bobby: Total weight loss of 88pounds, 5.15% weight loss
I also love the trainer save twist this time around! I love that Jilian used it to save her team member Craig. i dont think anyone should be sent home on the first day. That will be so unfair. But of course jillian had to say to her team initially ” do not think i will save you, because i likely would not!”
So yes, no one went home hurray. By the way, David lost 38 pounds!!! i was shocked for some reason i thought he will lose the least when i saw him leave the gym during workout before picking teams. But i guess he pushed past and like the symbol on his chest, he let out the warrior in him!!!
ANYWAY, ENOUGH SAID, TUNE IN NEXT WEEK, TUESDAYS 8/7C ON NBC.
