How great does Mike look? Could you believe Mike’s old shirt? Isn’t it just incredible how far they’ve all come? It was such an emotional start to the show – all the contestants, but especially Kristin and Aubrey were so affected by surviving to ‘singles’. And Jillian was right – having to choose between Bob & Jillian, and announce it in front of them, was like choosing between mom & dad. An incredible tough, emotional decision in some instances. And you could see the instant he said it that Mike regretted leaving his to a coin toss. And I don’t mean that he wouldn’t have picked Jillian, I don’t know… I just mean, we talked about it, and I think he regretted leaving such an important decision to a coin toss. Sione’s words about wanting to make his family proud obviously affected everyone – the BL campus is tough on everyone, and the experience impacts everyone in different ways – it was really moving to hear him say that no matter what happens, he is thinking of his family, and his true goal – to be healthy for them.
The Nascar challenge was so insane right? Clint Bowyer was SO awesome. A really nice guy, and it was really cool having him on the show. Mike & Ron are both major Nascar fans, so everyone was really psyched to meet him, but they in particular, knew all the stats etc. Not for nothing, Tara kicked ass dragging that car down the race track. Man, Tara took that weight and proved what she’s made of. Helen said it exactly right “bring it!” We were all so jealous of Tara’s victory ride. How incredibly fun did that look?
Wasn’t Kristin so incredible on the scale? She has been inspiring since day one, and tonight’s ep proved why. I hope everyone sitting at home on their sofa watching, thinking they can’t do it, hears her words and is encouraged, that anything IS possible – and that you can do it too! I love her.
