Episode 3 Recap Season 4, Episode 3

Jerry, don't go! Blue Team, how could you? Shame on you for voting off the oldest contestant in Biggest Loser history, the one who pulled in the biggest numbers at weigh-in and who's your captain - the one who took a chance on you to join his team. Big mistake. Huge. In case it's not obvious, I was really disappointed to see Jerry go home, especially after he reminded his team about loyalty and respect. Too bad his guilt trips didn't quite work. I know the Blue Team members were confident that Jerry would be able to continue on his own at home, but this early in the game, I just don't think it's wise to send home one the strongest competitors and a true leader. If it had been any other of the contestants that fell during the piggyback exercise, they would have made a huge fuss (see: Bill screaming at the top of his lungs at Isabeau) and used it as an excuse not to work out. Alas, Jerry did continue at home, and my jaw dropped when I saw how skinny he looked! It was so sweet seeing him beaming with pride over his 88-pound loss and doing those push-ups as if he were 16 years old rather than 62. I understand why Patty and Nicole cried when they revealed they had voted for Jerry, but why did Kae cry that hard when she made a mistake voting for Nicole? By the way, a note to the producers/editors: Is it really necessary to dedicate a full seven minutes at the top of the show to recap the last two episodes and previous seasons (which we just saw in the premiere two weeks ago)? It was nice to finally see the Red Team in good spirits. As they should be, with their first win at the weigh-in, winning the race challenge against the "yellow team" (how cute was Cooper the kindergartner?), and thanks to Phil, a phone call home to significant others and children. Cue tears. Pretty impressive that only a few people gave in to temptation in the secluded room of delicious high-calorie treats. Of course, Neil and Patty each did it because they thought they were taking one for the team. This show isn't really known for having too many comedic moments but I definitely laughed out loud with Bryan's "Hot Wings, oh it's been a long time" and Jez running in place while downing a slice of pizza.
