Episode 7 Recap Season 4, Episode 7

I'm speechless. Really, I don't even know what to say. I can't wait to read what all of you have to say because I'm guessing you're all in shock, too. Yes, we've already been stunned a number of times this season - when Jerry was sent home, when the Red Team let the Blue Team decide to send Phil home, when Kim cursed at David, just to name a few. But what Neil pulled off tonight - and wasn't eliminated for it - just leaves me speechless. The show is called The Biggest Loser, right? How could someone extremely overweight come on a show to lose weight and want to win the game so bad that he's willing to pack on 17 pounds? And then to continuously deny the accusations in front of everyone, only to whisper "It wasn't supposed to be that obvious, (bleep)!" with that devious smile into the camera? I don't watch other reality competition shows like Survivor or Big Brother, but I know that plenty of this kind of conniving and dirty game playing goes on. I've just never seen it on BL in the three seasons I've watched and never really expected to. That being said, it was a huge disappointment to see Jez sent home. He was a genuine and sweet person with the best intentions. I was really happy when he won the poker temptation game and got the power to pick teams (especially since he beat Amy - more on her later). And to see how upset and deceived Jez felt about Neil's plan and how he didn't even have any motivation to work out, it just broke my heart when the last trio voted for him. There were only three former Blue Team contestants voting so I thought for sure they were outnumbered and Neil would get the boot. But with the way the new trios were formed, Blue was spread over two groups and they actually got their wish. It should be really interesting to see how everyone else treats Neil, Kae, Ryan and Nicole next week. Bob summed it up perfectly when yelling at Neil and his teammates: "I am so [bleep] mad I cannot even see straight now." How come the trainers weren't at weigh-in this week? I would have loved to see Kim's face when Amy got on the scale and lost zero pounds. Not that I wish any of these contestants won't succeed, but Amy was kind of being a brat to Kim when Kim clearly had the best intentions for her team. She was the only one who switched to a new trainer when the teams split up. It was funny that Amy thought training with Jillian would be easier - can she not hear Jillian's insane yelling in the gym? This week's Weight Control Oatmeal product placement wasn't as over-the-top as last week's Wrigley's Gum. Bob has done quite a lot of product-name dropping - I wonder if he gets a special deal? That would be nice. But as funny as they are to watch because they feel so scripted, they're actually part of the awesome way the show gives out tips on healthy living. Now if only Neil understood that. And now, your thoughts. For BL clips, check out our Online Video Guide . show less
