Episode 15: Season Finale Recap Season 4, Episode 15

Congratulations Bill! Congratulations Jim! What a proud day for the Germanakos family. First they were the first twins in Biggest Loser history, then they were both rejected from the Red and Blue Teams. And then months later, they won it all: Bill, the Biggest Loser and winner of a quarter million dollars, and Jim, the Biggest Loser out of the eliminated 14 players and winner of $100,000. You know the show's producers must be drooling over the twins winning this game and how they are going to shamelessly remind us about it every chance they get in future seasons. Think of how many "breaking history" moments they had this season: the first-ever set of twins, the oldest contestant ever (Jerry), the female who lost the most weight on the show (Isabeau), the most weight gain on the show (Neil and his notorious 17 pounds), and the first time only one team has made it to the finale (Black Team). It should be interesting to see what kind of records will be hit in the next couple of seasons - which in case you missed the 18 times Allison mentioned it, premieres January 1. Speaking of Allison, was it just me or did she show more enthusiasm during the first opening minute of tonight's show than this entire season? Maybe it's something about live television that gets her energy going. Plus she looked fantastic in that purple dress, I think she's lost some weight since leaving campus as well. I swear my cheeks hurt after watching each of the 14 eliminated contestants and then the top four reveal their new bodies tonight. I was smiling from ear to ear seeing how amazing everyone looked, and how proud of their accomplishments they were. Kae still rocks my world. And how cute was Jerry when he ripped off his shirt after finding out he lost 110 pounds? Love him. Some of them really looked like completely different people, and after watching a huge portion of their journey to get here, I feel really satisfied and happy for them. Even Neil. But it was Jim who topped the weight loss with a whopping 186 pounds and 51.52 percent of his original self. That is just insane! Out of the remaining four, I had a feeling the winner would end up being Bill, but I was still secretly hoping a woman could pull it off. I certainly didn't expect Julie to beat both Hollie and Isabeau, but regardless, all three ladies just looked gorgeous. Bill lost 164 pounds and 49.10 percent of his body, and gained $250,000. Lucky guy. The fact that he and his brother were able to stand side by side and fit across his old pair of pants was unbelievable. So what did you all think? Did the live two-hour finale live up to your expectations or were you hoping for a different Loser winner? Well, friends, it's been real. Thanks for all your comments and for reading mine! Have a happy and healthy new year. In denial The Biggest Loser is over? Head over to our Online Video Guide to watch clips of the show. show less
