Episode 8 Recap Season 4, Episode 8

Is it mean that I was actually happy no one clapped when Neil lost 33 pounds? He totally lost my respect last week and quite obviously lost the respect of most of the contestants. And his own trainer, too - Bob told him he didn't expect to see him still there. Even his own teammates were upset at the way things where handled. Poor Kae was so distraught over the drama, she packed up her stuff and decided to go home because the game just wasn't worth it. Well I'm sure Kae was glad she decided to stick around because she proved at the end what a rock star she truly was. As if Bob telling her how much he believed in her and reminding her that she deserved to be there wasn't enough, her six-pound drop was a bigger percentage loss than Neil's 33 pounds. That's definitely something to be proud about. Right before the teams went into the elimination room and had to choose between Kae, David and Holly, I was worried that Kae's continued success week after week in the game was going to end up hurting her and she'd be the one sent home. But, of course, once again, team loyalty decided the vote and it was David's turn to say his emotional goodbye. It was really sweet of him to encourage everyone to give it all they've got and how each of them played a part in him changing his life. Even more emotional was seeing David reunite with his family and how his wife was able to wrap her arms around his whole body. And I loved when David said he would be a "handsome devil with smoking guns." He did look great after a 105-pound loss! It wasn't really that surprising when Amy revealed to Jillian she threw last week's weigh-in because Neil "pressured" her to. Again, I don't want to sound mean, but I can't seem to find it in me to root for her. It wasn't even that impressive that she had her biggest loss so far (11 pounds) because she pretty much cheated last week. No, there are no actual rules that you have to lose weight each week to stay in the game, but most of us agree that it's not necessarily fair. But alas, it is a game, and by now we've gotten used to people finding ways to get around the system instead of trying to beat it. Case in point: Isabeau knowing that Neil would lose enough weight to save their team, and purposely losing zero pounds so that she'd have a big number next week. It should be really interesting to see what happens once all teams are completely dissolved and it's every man and woman for themselves. Let's see how far sneaky strategies can actually go.
