As I am sure that you have figured out by now- I love the Biggest Loser. But, I will say that the season 13 finale of Biggest Loser being only 1 hour was somewhat of a disappointment.
Biggest loser being only 1 hour was far too little time for the finale. The whole show just seemed so rushed. I felt like we couldn’t even have a moment to celebrate in the wonderful weight loss goals met by so many of the contestants.
Trying to jot down notes and everyone’s weight, weight loss and percentage lost was nearly impossible as we skipped from one contestant to another with barely enough time to take a breath
And, Sam and Stephanie Poueu were there in the audience. It would have been nice to have heard a few words from them or about them, to find out how Sam is doing after his accident that left him in the hospital and rehab for months
Anyway, some people have been calling Season 13 of the Biggest Loser the ‘most controversial season yet’ with all of the drama that went on.
Well, with Tuesday night’s Biggest Loser finale (May 1,2012) we saw the last of the season 13 drama and can now look forward to season 14 and a brand new batch of Biggest Loser contestants.
While Conda and Kim made a terrible impression at the beginning of the season we did see Kim withdraw from the Conda drama, make changes and become a better person. I cannot remember exactly when the transformation took place. I believe that it was shortly after Daphne left the ranch.
Eventually we did see some changes in Conda but at that point no one was sure if it was her changing or just the fact that the Biggest Loser producers had the rest of the season re-edited to get rid of some of the drama due to so many of the fans being upset to the point of not watching if it was going to continue down the same road that it had been.
Jeremy tended to get a bad rap because of being Conda’s brother. But I have recently discovered that Jeremy really is as he was portrayed on the Biggest Loser. He is a genuinely nice guy with a great sense of humor.
Even though many tend to think he is like his sister Conda, and have posted some pretty nasty things about him, Jeremy keeps his sense of humor about it all.
One time someone asked him what he and Conda do for fun-kick old people?
Jeremy said that the comment was actually pretty funny and he got a chuckle over it.
So, knowing what a nice guy Jeremy is I have to say that I feel good that he was the one that won the title of Biggest Loser and took home the $250,000 prize.
Another example of Jeremy’s niceness is that the first thing he plans to do with is new money is to pay up a debt he thinks that he owes Buddy. Jeremy Britt said that Buddy talked all the time about how desperately his family needs a van. Buddy talked about how he hoped that here would be a competition to win a new vehicle like he knew Biggest Loser has done in previous years.
Obviously this was off camera as we didn’t see this on any of the Biggest Loser episodes.
“I told him that if I win I’d buy him a van,” Jeremy said. “So that’s the first thing I will do.”
But as season 13 was coming to a close we saw that Conda did indeed seem to have done some growing, maturing and (dare we say …) improving on her behavior and personality?
Ok, here are the weight loss results:
Ben 396-139=257 35.41%
Mike 358-160=198 44.69%
Lauren 246-89=157 36.18%
Gail 322-87=235 27.02%
Daphne 271-88=183 32.47%
Chism 361-103=258 28.53%
Caasandra 239-92=147 38.49%
Emily 264-102= 162 38.64%
Kimmy 219-71=148 32.42%
Megan 259-76= 183 29.34%
Chris 240-77=163 32.08%
Mike took home the $100,000 “At Home” prize for losing the most weight out of the eliminated contestants. He sure deserved it with the huge amount of eight that he lost and his whole personality is so improved. He is not the same Mike that we first met at the beginning of Biggest Loser season 13. Congrats Mike on your win and how far you have come J
Because Mark and Buddy walked off the Biggest Loser Ranch, and quit, they were not allowed to participate in the finale.
Here are the results for the Final 3:
Kim 252-118=134 46.83%
Jeremy 389-199 51.16%
Conda 294-115=179 39.12%
Kim won the $30,000 gym for her community in her hometown ofRoswell,Georgia. Even though Kim had high hopes of winning and being the Biggest Loser she still did very well.
Her and the other contestants won food for their local food banks back a while ago. She won the gym equipment for her hometown and she won a new vehicle recently.
BTW, if Buddy had fulfilled his contract and stuck it out on the Biggest Loser Ranch for that last week or two then he would have had the opportunity to win that vehicle and Jeremy wouldn’t be spending a chuck of his prize money getting a van for the Shu family.
Maybe some won’t agree with that but I am just saying that as a minister and man of honor that he (and Mark) should have stuck it out. Why should Jeremy have to buy Buddy a van hen he could have won a new vehicle himself? I think it was the same day that Mark and Buddy walked off the Biggest Loser that they had the contest for the new vehicle.
Ok, enough on that. I just want to congratulate Jeremy and Mike for their winning and everyone else that may not have won money but won their life and their health back. You all did a great job!
Now, just because the Biggest Loser is done for season 13 does not mean that we are done talking about it. We will still be posting more about season 13 and updates about Biggest Loser and former contestants, etc.
Biggest Loser has yet to be renewed for season 14 but many shows are yet to be renewed as it is still kind of early but we will let you know as soon as we find out. We have high hopes of Biggest Loser being renewed for season 14 as it has, even with lower ratings since Jillian Michaels left, been doing well in the rankings coming in at numbers 2-6 usually and this is out of 14 reality shows. Biggest Loser also has around 7 million viewers each week so we expect it to be renewed.
After all, it survived Vicky so it should survive Conda JLOL
Take care and have a great Summer! J
