Tonight was the last episode before the LIVE FINALE!!! And the final 4 already look so fantastic. I can’t wait to see how they look next week. There are going to be so many incredible transformations. One contestant even said to me on the phone yesterday that they don’t really get recognized that often, because they look so different! It’s going to be spectacular.
In tonights episode, I loved their bonfire with their old clothes. though it obviously lit up more than expected!!! They looked fantastic, and have obviously changed in so many ways. it was so interesting to hear all their comments about the clothes, and their memories, and Michelle's red dress.
The last challenge is such a wake-up call it seems. Everyone commented on how al l that extra weight seems so painful and impossible to manage now. And that was a reflection of what their bodies were putting up with every single day before they came to campus. It is always so liberating for them to ‘shed’ that weight for the last time. And I thought the race track challenge was so impressive. That they all completed it was such a victory for each of them.
Also, the videos of their individual journeys were so touching weren’t they? I mean, Jillian’s emotions were clear as she sat with Michelle. I always admire and respect how Bob and Jill both go through these journeys on such a personal level with all their contestants. The concern Bob showed tonight for Vicky, and how it was more important for him to discuss life after the show is ultimately what makes them both such spectacular trainers.
Ed made it clear how he hopes America will vote. I gotta admit, I was pretty floored when he gained 2 pounds that last week. And Heba was clearly heartbroken not to be an ‘official’ finalist, she said it was going to push her to work even harder at home. So America… you have to get out there and make your decision, and we’ll see if Ed and Heba get what they wished for!
