I didn't mean I liked that they might "live together"--I don't agree with that either. Just happy to hear that another love cnnection was made--I bet they get engaged by the time of finale...

I noticed the pic of the guy with the helicopter, but didn't see what it said--was that a TBL crew member? I guess I need to go look it up.

Oh, and I LOVED the kids coming back and how well they all did on their "test". And they are all looking great too! I also loved the wire challenge--I actually went with the Christian school I used to work for, to a place referred to as "Rope Challenges" and they didn't do this one, but they DID do one, where they climber up a ladder and then just walked across the wire, while holding on to an upper wire. It was quite a challenge for many of the kids, my youngest son being one of them! At 1st he was too scared to try it, but then his other classmates convinced him that he could do it, and he tried it. He was terrified, but I was so proud of him. Those places are so good for team building. They have any different things, that all require working together and encouraging each other.

As to Jillian--I think that she is discovering that she is NOT the only tough trainer out there. I know she needs to be tough, in order for them to "see the truth about their situation" but sometimes I think she DOES need a little more compassion as well. I DID however, also notice that Gina just stood watching during part of the shoveling challenge, but was glad to see her join in and even encouraged them to continue working on it later--and was ALSO happy to see Joe, pick her up and everybody helping her to finish the race. It just seems like everytime she starts to get to a break through, she loses it again--and yes, the crying gets to be too much!

I have the following things to say in addition to what Vicki said.

Loved the kids. Loved the wire challenge. Sad about the crew member who died in the copter crash last week. They showed a picture at the end of the show. Loved Jared - he is a local around here. Way loved Jillian standing up and speaking out. Wish we could have Conda back just so Jillian could chew on her. Thinking Alex has a physical issue like Brittany did which slows her weight loss but loved her figuring it out with Jillian.

Okay now for the not so nice. I am OVER Gina. Really over her. Too much drama. Too much whining. Too much complaining. Too short a temper. I know they can edit this stuff, but honestly she has nowhere to hide. She left the gym! She didn't do the challenge beyond holding a shovel! She moaned and groaned showing her passport! Then she cries on the scale! Kudos to Jillian for calling it like she saw it. Sorry to gripe so much but she drove me nuts tonight!

Anyway, mostly the show was good overall. I like the red line because there is no dramatic voting booth and then explanations of why you voted. Francelina looks awesome! Yes, I did see the note and hopefully they have a great relationship. I am not really in favor of living together, but they are grown people who can decide for themselves.

Did you guys catch that? Dolvett says, "Jeff & Francelina have a love thing going...", and then Jillian said, "When you are working with someone you are intimate with..." WOO HOO! Another love connection on TBL!
emoticon

FYI--we are doing 15 exercises during each commercial--started with squats, then toe touches, then jumping jacks, then Burpee's--then back to squats! A different kind of squats, with your legs spread (uses different muscles). Next, I don't know what they are called, but holding arms bent up at chest level and pull the elbows back 2 then open on 3...Jon just said, "This show has too many commercials". This time we did side-bends...
LOL emoticon

WOW! JIllian is losing it--being gone has gotten her out of the loop a bit, I think...

UH OH! There goes the chance for everybody to see her with a makeover--hopefully she will have her own make-over... Just finished the show & she is looking GREAT, I can't wait to see how she looks at Finale! Did you all notice the comment at the end--saying she was looking forward to moving to Chicago to train with Jeff... (I missed it, but Jon told me...)
Vicki

FYI--As you can probably tell, I started writing this while the show was still on (during the wire challenge) and then kept adding the commercial exercise we did...
