I think that Ramone and Jessica is an item. I also think that they will do better once the cameras are not on them all the time.

I saw that about Jessica and Ramon and also how they were after the marathon. She really does look like she's in love with him although she's not as demonstrative as he is. She's more resesrved.

Jessica and Ramon are definitely a couple--last night I noticed her putting her head on his shoulder before the marathon started. She just isn't as out there as he is.

Ramone got a better deal with his at home makeover. Find out who did his and hire them for the next season for the men. Becky looked great and she and her husband were so cute. It was a delightful to watch them. It does appear that Ramone is way more into her than she is into him. I feel bad for her if that is the case. People will give her a hard time just for not having the same feelings. Or perhaps she is not a person who wears her heart on her sleeve, who knows? I wish them all much success. Although, I hope Ramone comes back and wins. I liked him from the beginning. Becky is a close second in my book, At 44 I hope to have her guts and wisdom when I'm her age.

Am I the only one that though Ramone was a lot happier to see Jessica then she was to see him? He was glowing and she looked almost annoyed.

I like Ramone's makeover from the prior week, except I didn't care for that light blue sweater vest he was wearing.

I loved Becky's makeover. I didn't care for Sunny's dress. I thought Sunny looked much better on her follow up video. Her arms had visibly shrunk.

Do you suppose Sunny through the weigh in so she could go home and have a chance at the at-home prize?

John's wife was dressed to hide her weight. We've all done that, very loose clothing.

I think the guys are still a size at which it is hard to fit them well in a suit, so the suit ends up looking loose.

I agree with everyone, Becky was fantastic. My husband was in men's retail and he said there wasn't one suit that fit each of the men. Considering they went to Beverly Hills, I am sure that the suits were from their prop dept. No way were they fitted. Even in the store, the fashionista put on a suit jacket on John that was too big. Come on........ Who will win? we will have to wait and see.

I think Ramon's makeover at home was much better than any of the guys. In the past it seemed the guys would not shave, grow the hair long so at least there is something to make over.

The girls looked great. I really liked Sunny's dress. I loved the top of it the heart shape looked really good on her. The heels well if she did not like them I wish she would have gotten some shoes she liked and felt comfortable in.

Becky I loved the cut of her hair. She just looks great.

I noticed the crotch on Antones pants was hung very low and that made it look very ill-fitting. And I always wonder why they insist on no sleeves and shorter dresses for the women. The arms on a woman are always the last to look good, if they ever do, and more often than not, they choose a dress with no sleeves. I kind of ruins it for me.

Becky and her Hubs were so sweet and maybe she will pull a Helen and win it all?
Since we haven't gotten to know John's wife there could be some reason she dresses conservatively but he obviously loves her enough to share what he has learned to help her out

I loved last nights show!

Especially the romance between Becky and her husband...give me a tissue!

OK...John's wife! C'mon man! That woman needs help!!!! That drab, plain hair...coming back to see her man after all those weeks dressed like a nun and she couldn't even manage a swipe of lip gloss! I could feel his love for her....but man...that woman needs to make an effort! On a clothing note...I loved that first combination John had on with the light sports coat...very nice.

Vinny! I think he looked great! Again, the love he had for his girlfriend, wonderful. And the support she's going to give to keep him from being known simply as "Big Vinny" the fat guy, and helping people see him for the fun wonderful guy that he is...love it!

Antone's suit was very poorly fitted, and I'm not sure why!

Sunny is just beautiful, so there wasn't much work needed there. But she certainly is bottom heavy and I think they need to keep her legs hidden.

Haha, that's a good one - homeless guy in a suit!! But to be honest, I thought Antoine did NOT look good in his suit and would have thought he was more like the 'homeless guy in a suit' than John - Vinny's makeover was the best of the guys, IMO, but none of the suits really fit them that well - I liked John better in the first outfit they put him in than the suit he ended up with.

You've also made a good point about Olivia's makeover last year being the highlight of the year - speaking of which, I think her 'finale dress' was spectacular! Hope the 'girls' from this season come back wearing nice-looking outfits rather than the sad attempt to look 'sexy' in the satin we've seen before. A couple of them in the past have looked to me like they were trying to become street hookers because they went so far overboard.

I don't think any of the Final 4 are fast enough to win a shorter race but a marathon requires endurance and both John and Antoine have some speed along with a lot of endurance so they might have a chance. Some of the others who have gone home are lighter and moved more easily when they were on the ranch, though, so probably will be able to whiz past the Final 4.

Only 6 more days to wonder!

I have to second the shaving remark. Unless you have a beard like Joe does, clean your face. John looked like they gave a homeless guy a suit. I did not like Becky's first dress.. the black one.. showed off her bulge. Not quite ready for that dress. The black and white one looked stunning, as did her hair.

I liked this year much better for the guys. I think last year though, Olivia's makeover was so amazing it overshadowed this year. Also this year, the women are still pretty big, so the makeovers were less dramatic. For a guy.. 20-30 lbs extra don't really change much. Antone is over 320, but looked good in a suit. The finale is going to be a bunch of amazing transformations. Normally they get lower on the ranch.

The big question is whether it's going to be all guys for the final 3, and who wins the marathon. I can't imagine one of these guys winning the marathon. Not sure what would happen if John, or Antone won the marathon. I am rooting for Jennifer, the lady with the stress fracture. She was a runner. Can't wait to figure out how they end up with the finale contestants.

I kind of agree with you about voting off the person with the lowest percentage of loss. THey used to have a red line that was an automatic elimination on earlier seasons toward the end.

really wished that John would have been 'shaved'...... thought he looked quite unkempt .... but then i am still mad at him from last week's vote mess up for Sunny. grrrr

having said that? i DO think this week it should have been Sunny to be voted off. when it gets down to these last ones? i wish it could just be a simple case of the one who was lowest percentage of weight loss? is gone..........

really difficult to be voting when it's down to those few.

I liked the makeovers a lot more than last year. I thought the dresses were awful last year.

Actually, that first outfit that Sunny had on was probably the best for her, because her figure is very, very bottom heavy, and it effectively hid her hips and legs.

John's wife looked about 90......

I don't know why but I really didn't like this years Makeover Show. I guess b/c none of the makeovers were all that dramatic. I expected a more drastic change in all the contestants and I was really disappointed.
And I just have to say it...what was that first outfit that they had Sunny in? It showed off none of her curves and if anything hid her great new shape.
I wasn't really impressed with the guys either. I thought the suits just didn't look all that great on them they were just too baggy.
Becky did look good though I loved both dresses that they put her in.

I'm really excited for the marathon next week! I can't wait to see who wins

I thought last years makeovers were way better. More dramatic. I agree with the suits. I was really shocked they sent Sonny home. They may regret that one.

The marathon is for another prize I believe.
The weigh in is just for the 4.

Now I am confused. lol will have to look it up

I too thought the show was great and it was lovely to see how they all "cleaned up" nicely.
I think that the dresses the ladies wore were so much more flattering than what is worn by the finale women most of the time.Not all shiny satin! LOL
I thought the guys looked great as well but the suit Antone wore did look baggy on him!
Anyway I got from what Allison said
1. everyone gets to come and run the marathon
2. winner gets to go for the Biggest Looser title and $$$$
3. There will be a weigh-in after or before ? the marathon so I guess someone gets eliminated
Soooo that is my five cents LOL

I really liked last night's show - Becky looked absolutely amazing and Sunny looked great, too - the guys look better than they did at the start but I wasn't impressed with any of their suits - looked like they were 'off the rack' rather than tailored, which I would have expected they'd do for the show.

The Final Four did surprise me a little - once I saw Antoine below the yellow line, I thought it was goodbye. But he has probably less to lose than Sunny does, simply because he's so muscular so it might have been the best choice for those left. I was surprised that Becky voted for Sunny and think they might have cooked that up between themselves - Sunny knows she can't win the BL prize but may have a shot at the at-home prize.

Can't wait for the marathon next week to see who else gets in - any guesses about how they are going to handle the finale? Will we have 2 eliminations? Four weigh-ins? Maybe all 5? Another yellow/red line? Should be an interesting twist, no matter what happens....and it occurred to me that it's even possible one of the people ON the ranch now could win it so would they take the place of the at-home person who might have come back or will they still let the fastest at-home person come back? Really has me wondering!!
