The point of the show was to lose weight to win $250,000. I am quite certain she will put some weight back on, they always do. I think if she was bitchy at all it is all because of the grief she got for winning all the challenges. Tumi looked great, and I love Tanya.

Ya, I get that's the point of the show, but the question is how much weight are you willing to lose for that money. There is a point of being too underweight and I bet she straddled that line VERY closely.

Now, I agree with you - she will probably put a little bit back on and that is totally OK and I think appropriate.

Joe I didn't mean to sound hateful, I just was thinking of the nasty comments people keep posting about her. To me, she did not seem at all sickly to me, but you are the doc and you know better to me. And didn't I say Ruben was only on to promote his new album?

Oh, you didn't sound hateful!!

Oh, you are so right about Ruben. I mean he lost some weight and it is definitely noticeable, but you were so right about him promoting his album.

I am very happy for Rachel and I think she did a great job keeping up with her regimen after leaving the Ranch (as did David and Bobby), but I personally thought she went too far. And I think Jillian and Bob did too based on their reactions.

thanks Wingz, my thoughts exactly. I did not think that Rachel looked healthy. She was far too thin for her height. Even the trainers looked shocked. She looked anorexic to me. If you know any anorexics they start looking like bobble heads because their heads are too big for their bodies. I hope I am wrong and that she can maintain a healthy weight. They all amazed me. Tumi, Marie, Bobbie, David. Wow, this was quite the season.

I didn't know that people were posting bad things online. Poor girl but when you do something publicly, you take the good with the bad.

I think Tanya is just gorgeous!!!! Love her

Exactly. It was bound to happen with people saying horrible things, but that is so wrong!

And I agree - Tanya is so beautiful. I was happy so many seemed to have quite the success this season!

Tanya was one of my favorites through the season, she was such a mom to most of them and had the biggest heart

I agree that Rachel lost a bit too much weight, but she's not in the dangerous range if her height is accurately reported at 5'4". That puts her bmi at 18, which is barely into the underweight range.

I suspect most of the contestants use a diuretic prior to the big weigh in...or consume foods that are natural diuretics. That dehydration can save you a few pounds, but make you a bit wobbly too.

I suspect Rachel and Bobby will both put on a few pounds before finding their balance.

Tumi looks fabulous! I was so impressed. Holly is still a pretty big girl and Reuben is still awfully big too.

Overall I thought the contestants were great and did very well. I loved seeing contestants from seasons past that have maintained their weight loss or even improved upon it.

I thought Rachel looked way too thin and her face was very gaunt. She looked much older than her age. But I liked her throughout the season so that's cool. I liked all the contestants. And outside of Ruben and that weight lifting woman, the majority of them looked pretty darn good. Loved Tanya and Tumi though. And I'm so glad Tumi won the home prize. She looked fabulous.
