Meeting Jerry Rice and Steve Young was so cool. They are both really nice guys, and so enthusiastic about being part of the show. Steve introduced me to his wife, and she is a really big fan of BL. Steve said when he mentioned to her the opportunity to appear on BL she immediately demanded he do it! It was really cute.
But of course, being from LA I don’t know a lot about the NFL. So, before I met them, I was texting and IMing with Kyle Brandt (former Philip) and Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) about Jerry and Steve. I asked them all sorts of questions, and got tons of info about their careers. They both helped me out, and of course, couldn’t believe I was going to be meeting them. Better than that – I brought Ben with me that day. We were shooting that challenge on a Saturday, so Ben came to enjoy the afternoon on that beautiful campus with me.
And Steve Young taught him to throw a football!!!! How cool is that? Someday, I bet he’s going to love that story. I got a couple cool shots of them in action too. But all in all, it was a pretty spectacular day.
The saga continues with the all the drama in the house. Vicky pulled the same strategy twice and won both the football drill prize with Steve and Jerry, and the NFL challenge, so she and Brady are going to the Hawaii in style to see the ProBowl. Pretty awesome prize, and I’m glad they really love football, that’ll be so cool for them.
There were some pretty incredible numbers on the scale this week. I mean, shocking. Amy has done so well all season, not only does she look great, she was the ‘biggest loser’ in the house so far. And to lose 5lbs and still fall below… that’s a tough blow. Also, because looking back on the first few seasons, how hard it was for the girls to lose weight… but now, how everyone has been hitting pretty impressive numbers, pretty consistently, it really is amazing. But obviously it was not the outcome Amy was hoping for… I’m sure she was hoping/expecting to not fall below, as she’d been so consistent throughout, so she wouldn’t be relying on Vicky’s vote.
But that’s the thing about reality tv. You can’t change the outcome. As Phil (Season 4 Phil) always used to say on the scale “it is what it is”. And believe me… there are times when you’re watching things happen, and you just know what the outcome SHOULD be, and then it doesn’t go that way and there’s nothing you can do.
I’m so happy to see how fantastic Amy looks now. And how cute was her dad? I love Shellay too. They are cute mother/daughter duo. And I can’t wait to see them at the finale.
Can you believe the finale is COMING UP!!!! Dec 16th. It’s going to be amazing to see how everyone looks, the changes they’ve made in their lives. Keep watching!
I hope everyone has an awesome Thanksgiving!!!
p.s. for those Days fans – I TOLD YOU I was going through a pickle obsession phase in my pregnancy!! Yes, that was the one and only time I actually drank the pickle juice. But man, it was worth it. (if you’re reading this thinking what the hell is she talking about, see back to my blog about pickles.)
