I felt so bad for Jerry last night on Biggest Loser

I was watching last night's Biggest Loser, and Jerry, the oldest contestant, and Daniel, the biggest male contest, fell below the yellow line. The two people who really needed to be there, and they had to vote one of them off. I think that Joelle should have offered to give up her spot to whoever got voted off. It just wasn't fair. She wasn't putting in the effort that everyone else was, and she got to stay. I guess it goes to show that life isn't fair, even in reality tv.

Yeah I felt bad for Jerry too. And I couldn't believe that Joelle got to stay. The little beep beep beep was a a pain. And after she had her friend leave so she could stay and not put in the effort to get her friend back and think of taking the money. After she gave a big deal about it too. I think that's the one not to like this season. Also about the money if i was there and I had to decided to take the money or not I thinK i would have took the $25,000 just for the simple fact I know that it's better than nothing and even if I lost all the weight I wanted I still wouldnt' be the biggest loser. So I would think that would be better than nothing. To have that cash to help my family would be worth it. To give it up because I know that would help my family and also give me a whole gym in my house too :)

I think that if I had been on that show, and took the $25,000, I'd have to take the necessary steps to lose the weight, such as lipo or gastro. That would be the only way I'd take the money. Because I'm sure if I took the money, and bought a gym, intending on losing the weight that way, it'd never happen. The gym equipment would just gather dust. I would need Bob or Jillian there to push me each step of the way. Sometimes I just need that to get the job done. I'm a procrastinator.

I felt bad for Jerry as well. I was also hoping that Joelle would go. I do think the cast made the right decision, though. Dan needs to be there more than anyone--if he is going to live. I think Joelle should have taken the money and gone home. There are hundreds of people who would want to be there, and she is just wasting space. Maybe if she had taken the money and left, Jerry would still be there. Perhaps we can be rid of her next week.

I felt bad for Jerry at the vote last night too. But that all vanished at the transformation moment. Wow. He really looked great. I guess he learned what he needed those 2 weeks on the ranch, and maybe all that was, was the knowldge that he could do it. Wouldn't it be great if Jerry won the $100,000 at the end? I can't wait to see Jillian's face when she sees him.

yeah, me too but im also happy that Dan didn't get eliminated because Dan needs it more than Jerry because the guy said Jerry was once skinny also, Dan said that in the beginning of the season he might not make it to 30. I agree with you that Joelee should've been eliminated because Dan and Jerry worked their butts off while Jollee acted like she didn't even want to be at the ranch, i was kind of hoping she got eliminated. yea life isn't fair but look how thin Jerry looks now, even though he didn't have Jullian and Bob to help him he got thin so it's not so bad.

Hello, I too was mad and upset, when that happened. Although I understood what they all meant by that Jerry can get back to his old self and for Daniel he never got to be Skinny. I have to say that Jerry was very well strong and understood why they decided the way they did. I just sat there and cried though when it showed that it was between them two. I was yelling and my hubby kept saying calm down there is nothing you can do, I told him you know what it was not suppose to be that way it was suppose to come down to Joelle and one of the other people because she does not want to be there like the others do. But I have to say though that when they should the update picture of Jerry he looks really good., but did you see the preview for next weeks episode, it is going to be a good because it looks like Joelle might just home then. Although she should have been the one to go this week and it did not happen. Well to be continued. Happy Mylotting

I just like it that everyone is being honest about how things are this season. Last season all the plotting and game playing was really driving me crazy. It's kind of good that the couples got broken up now. With all these people on thier own it has taken alot of that game play out of it because people are focusing on keeping themselves safe above the yellow line. So, to hear Joelle's "teammates" say that she doesn't deserve to stay was almost a relief. Unless her additude changes all the way, she is not safe.

Well I think she is the next to go, but I gusse we will have to wait till Tuesday to see what happens. I think everyone is going to work together to get rid of her because she did not deserve to stay, Jerry should have been the one to stay, I think that Joelle should have gave up her spot to Jerry.

Joelle really needs to go home I don't think she will get very far on the show with weight loss or with the show she just dosen't have the I want to lose weight attitude like the others do.

That was so great that the two of them aredoing so well. I cant wait to see tomorrows episode. I havent watched this show in a couple years and this time I am very addicted to this season.

I only really started watching this show during the last season. I couldn't watch it before because I had other shows get in the way. Now I'm able to watch this show. It gives you plenty of ideas on how you can lose weight, and watch out for those unwanted calories.

I was really sad to see both of them in the bottom but I think the contestants made the right choice. Jerry has been skinny before he knows what is feels like plus he has the support of his wife at home to keep him on track Dan had never known what being skinny was and if he goes back home with his friend who was seen eating two hot dogs and french fries he would never get the weight off. I still love Jerry though and he has lost alot of weight since being home go Jerry routing for you to take second place.

Yes, Daniel does not need that. When you're just starting out on your weight trail, destractions are not what you need. Daniel needs positive images, and seeing David eat like he was is not going to help. Although, you'd have to wonder how well he would have done if he'd been sent home.

Oh yeah I was really sad for Jerry and was glad that they showed he had continued after he went home and succeeded with his goals. Glad Dan got to stay I think he needs it more than Jerry did but I thought they should have booted Joelle out she was not really trying that much. I wish I could afford a gym and lose, I use a ball and my hubby and I dance 3 nights a week but can't seem to lose. Drink lots of water and eat salads, soups and have not had sweets or anything since my son's birthday Dec. 9th. I am stuck at one weight. Hubby has lost 22 lbs doing the same thing I do every day.

Hello, I think you should just cut your self a break because before you know it you will lose weight it's just that it is easier for guys to lose weight compared to us girls, I know it is so unfair but you will get there just take it easy and keep doing what your doing and you will see the results. I am going through trying to lose weight and I probably only lost about 3 pounds in the last 2 weeks, we just have to hang in there. Good luck with your workouts and all. I know you can do it..
