And the winner is…
The season finale! One of the best episodes of the whole show as you get to see all the amazing transformations all the contestants have made.
I really enjoyed how they did the finale this time around with not weighing in every individual person. I have NO idea how they still managed to make the show 2 hours without that but it seemed to go by faster.
I thought all the original red team members looked amazing. Jessica is HOT. Oh and on that note so is Patrick! I wanted him to win so bad. I knew he was going to be so cute at the end of this.
Top three contestants for the at home prize were: Vinny, Patrick and Jennifer.
Somehow Jennifer pulls out the win! She must have thought she would win Bob’s undying affection by winning. He did give her flowers though so I guess it worked. She didn’t show very much emotion at all which was disappointing you just won 100 GRAND- Smile at least!
And then came time for the finale three: Ramon, Antone and John.

They all looked amazing but you knew right away the prize was between John and Antone.
And the winner is… John! Ugh. I was #TeamAntone all the way so a little disappointed crazy John won. But hey if manages to keep it off for the next year then I will be very impressed.
And with that #BL12 is over. Apparently its only 4 weeks until the next season!
What did you think of the finale? Are you excited for just Dolvett and Bob to be the trainers next season?
Finally the week we have all been waiting for: MARATHON WEEK!
When they first said that everyone was going to run a marathon this season I thought..yeah right. There is no way that every single contestant is going to be able to finish a marathon. And I was right- but dang Boston Johnny and Debbie walking that thing in over 10 hours that was impressive.
The episode started off with John, Becky, Vinny and Antone going home. I always love this part because it is so fun to see their family and friends reactions.
I didn’t love that John decided to not go back to work and is making his poor wife do everything for him just so he can focus on the finale. I understand that $250,000 is a ton of money so it’s probably worth it to him to not go back if he wins. It also makes it seem like he is going to gain all the weight back because he’s really not learning how to do it at home.
Vinnys proposal was super cute- good for them. Is it just me or did his girlfriend look much better in the pictures they showed of her all season? Either way they are a cute couple and I am happy for them.
The actual marathon wasn’t as exciting as years past because no one but the trainers came in and ran with them. Before they would have all kinds of old contestants and family members jump in-why not this year?
I wish Courtney would have won but since Ramon did I really hope he beats John at the finale. John is just way too intense for me!
And with that we only have one more episode until the finale. I can’t say I thought these Biggest Loser recaps were a blog hit- but I liked them!
What did you think of marathon week?
Sorry for the lack of #BL12 posts the past two weeks- I didn’t get to watch the show until later in the week and by that time thought a recap was too postdated.
Luckily this week I actually was able to watch the show on Tuesday night (1/2 hr delayed so I didn’t have to watch the commercials of course) and I am so glad I did- GREAT episode!
Trainers: Dolvett really had to kick John’s butt this week or else he was at risk of going home. The last thing this show needs is Dolvett to go home so I am really glad they managed to hold on for one more week.
Competitions: The Thanksgiving eating challenge was actually pretty gross. None of that food looked good! Lucky for him Vinny was able to win the 3 lb advantage and the rest of the contestants were left with excess calories to burn off.
The Jacob’s ladder challenge is always one of my favorites because the contestants actually have to do a lot of physical activity to win it. An hour and a half of any type of cardio is no joke but I am guessing it was very difficult on that thing. John winning the one pound advantage at this might actually do him more harm than good in the upcoming weeks.
Weigh in: So John has a terrible weight loss week but a 1 lb advantage. Then he selfishly gives Sunny the 1 lb disadvantage putting her and Ramon under the yellow line. I am with Antone on this one in that I was SHOCKED John went on to vote for Sunny. He knew she did not deserve to be up for elimination and yet he still tried to eliminate her?
I really hope he understands that if he is below the yellow line next week he is going home without question. But maybe he already knew that. Either way Ramon went home and the date they showed with Jessica was just too much for my cheesy quota.
Anyone else think Ramon is going to propose during the marathon?
Why do you think John so stupidly voted for Sunny?
