Tonight’s temptation was crazy wasn’t it? I really didn’t expect all the drama that unfolded from it. And the tension between Heba and Amy really amped up. I often wonder – watching this stuff later on tv, how the contestants feel about it now, looking back on it. If they would have done things differently if they had a do-over.
And now, thanks to Heba’s swapping Phil and Amy, Jillian has a guy on her team.
Bob and Jillian have both done such an amazing job reaching their contestants this season. I love this season because we have gone deeper into the emotions that have led to their obesity more than ever before. Bob helping Amy get through her new team situation, and then Jillian’s heart to heart with Michelle, exactly what this show is all about. And it’s amazing how many people at home have already been affected by all these emotional stories. Fans come up to me all the time telling me how they relate to one of our contestants, and how their stories inspire and motivate them. One of the crew members on the Bonnie Hunt show brought in a photo of her ‘old self’ cause she knew I was going to be on the show, to tell me that she had lost 87 pounds, and how the show encouraged her and kept her focused on her goals every week. How amazing is that?
Can you believe how early that challenge started??? Holy early call time, Batman! We started that challenge at 6am, and they were at it ALL DAY. They weren’t exaggerating about the heat either. In that area of LA the thermometer can really climb up there!!! And they all did such an amazing job throughout that unbelievably tough challenge.
This was the episode when I announced my pregnancy at the weigh in. Everyone was so excited – and it was such a special moment for me to share with everyone.
As you can see black vs blue really changes up the dynamics between the players. So things are going to heat up even more now. And some incredible weight loss…
