Episode 6 Recap Season 4, Episode 6

Wow, what an emotional episode of The Biggest Loser tonight. From Holly's mother passing away to the Red Team's home videos and then Phil's tearful goodbye at elimination, there was quite a lot to take in. Not to mention the drama between Kim and David and then Kim throwing Amy under the bus (as Amy put it). So much happening, and this was the episode they chose to return to the 60-minute format? On a much lighter note, last week one of you commented on something I've been meaning to mention, too: the hilarious and obvious product placement. Yes, sponsors need to be shown love on the shows they provide for (especially common on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition). We see it a lot on BL (I'm talking about you, 24 Hour Fitness, Subway and 100-calorie Packs) but there was just something so rehearsed and silly about Jillian's "My favorite is Wrigley Extra's Super Mint Gum." I was just waiting for everyone in the kitchen to pop a piece of gum and wink at the camera. So back to the important stuff. It wasn't easy watching Holly find out about her mother's illness and then hearing her mother had passed away. It's moments like that you don't expect on reality shows, moments that remind you of how real these people actually are. Jillian showed her softer side by comforting Holly and I'm glad Holly was still able to weigh in and contribute to her team before she left. Holly always had a good spirit about her and I hope she's able to continue her weight-loss journey if she doesn't return to the BL campus. Losing Phil was a huge blow to the Red Team. I'm really surprised Bryan voted against him and not Amy, sending the vote into a tie and thus resulting in the Blue Team getting to decide who went home. And it was so obvious they would pick Phil. Although it wasn't that cool of Kim to clearly imply that Phil, Bryan and David vote off Amy while Amy was sitting right there, she was right. It was the same thing with Jerry - Phil had won every challenge for the Red Team and pulled in huge numbers. I know they considered his weight loss a threat, but how could they think they'll win any more challenges? In the meantime, Phil looked fantastic after losing another 46 pounds at home, bringing his total so far to 108. I can't wait to see the finale and see how much more weight everyone's lost. And what was up with Kim and David's crazy fight? I felt bad for everyone else in the gym because it seemed so uncomfortable watching from home, I can't imagine how tense it must have felt like there. David told Kim to shut up repeatedly and threatened that she'd "lose a finger," but she came back with "no you're not (bleep), you work out where I (bleep) tell you to work out." Not sure who the winner in that exchange of mean words was, but I wish we could have seen the next time they had to interact. Did they make peace or will they continue to be mad at each other? Guess we'll find out next time. For now, keep the great comments coming and go check out our Online Video Guide. show less
