On this week's episode of Thintervention, after six weeks of working Jackie's program on their own, the clients reunite for the final weigh-in.
In one word, I'd describe the season finale as understated. And I liked that about it. What differentiates Thintervention from other weight-loss shows is less attention on shedding pounds and more focus on emotional transformations. "My program is not just about reaching a goal weight. It's about making smarter choices," Jackie says. The low-key vibe surrounding the scale makes sense.
Bryan T. Donovan, Nikki Wood
Bryan Donovan knows about using humor as a coping mechanism. The star of Bravo's Thintervention says, "It's easier to laugh at yourself before somebody else does." But the jolly fat guy isn't so fat anymore -- he lost 39 pounds during the six-week program. Donovan tells TVGuide.com about his first impression of trainer Jackie Warner, which fellow trainee surprised him the most, and what his favorite workout challenge was. Hint: It included wearing a pink bolero jacket.
On this week's episode of Thintervention, Jackie sends the clients to a sport and fitness resort, where she tests their self-control with real-world temptations. (Picture a table full of fried calamari and spinach and artichoke dip.) Meanwhile, Joe considers changing more than just his appearance.
Jackie Warner's clients know what they're getting into when they sign up to be her trainees. But for some of the cast of Bravo's Thintervention with Jackie Warner, the lifestyle changes weren't so easy. The no-nonsense trainer (her best-selling book is titled This is Why You're Fat) says she was most surprised by Real Housewife of Orange County's Jeana Keough, who came into the program not wanting to change her routine, yet saw results. Warner tells TVGuide.com why Jeana, Shay and Stacy struggled to lose weight, and what to expect from the show's finale. Plus: Which celeb would Warner love to work with?
On this week's episode of Thintervention, Jackie demands absolutely no cheating and total commitment for one full week. She's caught the clients in their lies, and they owe her. Jeana, a former O.C. housewife, and Nikki, the Australian with a penchant for cocktails, move in with their more disciplined castmates, Bryan and Nikki. Meanwhile, Jackie plans for some end-of-the-week fun — feline style.
In this week's episode of Thintervention, celebrity fitness trainer Jackie Warner suspects her clients are lying about their commitment to her plan — and goes to extremes to prove it. Their food and workout logs, it seems, simply don't gel with their results — an average loss of only two or three pounds a week. Meanwhile Nikki, an expat from Australia working as a life advisor in L.A., continues to enjoy her cocktails; and Mandy, a former professional cheerleader, revs up the team with some steamed goodies.
