Can you believe we have almost crossed Season 12's finish line??? This is so exciting!!! Okay, so we started out the episode with the at-home packages for the Final Four. I don't know about you, but I love seeing the contestants go home and reunite with their families. It's such a celebration and a victory. I loved seeing John with his children again... it was so clear how much he loves those children. Antone... wow... just wow. Watching him bench press every one of his children literally brought tears to my eyes. Then we had Vinny... who didn't love seeing him up on stage in his element?? I mean the confidence just poured off him... AND a proposal for his longtime girlfriend Lori?? Are you kidding me?? Romantic. Lastly, we had Becky. I can't even put into words how proud I am of Becky. I will tell you that The Biggest Loser is a man's game... and I can say that because I WON! The women have to work 10 times harder than the men to keep up, and let me tell you, Becky has represented. When she was working out with Bob, she had that look in her eyes! I know that look very well. :)
Next, was the moment we have been waiting for... the marathon!!! Woohoo!! It was so amazing to see everyone again. It brought us back to Day 1, as viewers meeting these contestants for the first time... broken, sad, unhealthy and unhappy. NOW, we see a group of hopeful, happy and healthy people, who have battled to get their lives back and won. This marathon represents so much... it is the ultimate race. We have watched many seasons of contestants run this race, but never have the stakes been so high. Alison told the contestants that in addition for the possibility of solidifying a place in the Final Three, there would be cash prizes given out as well. Hello incentive!! All the contestants gave a HUGE effort, but in the end, Ramon was the victor AND now a member of the Final Three, who will battle it out on the scale for the title of The Biggest Loser! Courtney ran her heart out and came in a close second, followed by John in third and Jessica rounding out the winner's circle in fourth place. I have to admit I just LOVE the idea that the winner of the marathon gets to be a part of the Final Three. What a great way to EARN your place back in the fight for the finish. I have always felt Ramon deserved to be a part of that group! So happy for him.
On to the weigh-in. Let's not forget that we have two more people to add to round out the finalists. Everyone did a great job on the scale, but in the end, Vinny and Becky were eliminated, and Antone and John will join Ramon. It's going to be a testosterone fest next week!! Um, did I just say NEXT WEEK?? Why yes I did!!! Next week is the LIVE finale of The Biggest Loser Season 12, where we will be crowning a new winner. I'm so excited to pass on the torch to the next victor!!
SOOOOOOOOO... who do you think is going to take it all? I have NO idea!! I can tell you that it's anyone's game. No one EVER thought I would win, but like I said, anyone can take it! Let me know who you think will win?? I'm dying to know what you think!
Also, I have a little surprise for you next week... check back Tuesday. ;)
Health & Happiness,
