  • (dynamics of group survival)  “Boo hoo hoo we had to send Alexandra home.”  Allison says they might be able to save their butts by losing 150 lbs. collectively and everyone quickly forgets about Alexandra!!
  • Challenge: if everyone loses enough weight to equal 150 lbs. NO ONE goes home (115 lbs. after rewards and challenges they earned in show).  Problem:  it is week #2…very difficult to lose weight in week #2!!!
  • What is wrong with Tracey? Why is it taking her so long to get out of the hospital?  In answer to what was wrong she said it was a – “big deal” and  “huge” – what does that mean?  No go ahead from doctor.  WHY?!    I want a diagnosis!!!
  • Julio…teams turning on you dude.  Better kick it in gear!
  • Curtis Stone’s tips:
  1. 3-4 ounce portion size on meats (Sam’s commentary:  give me a break)
  2. Learn how to cook:  grill, poach, steam, bake, broiled (non-oil)
  3. Salads at restaurants are not necessarily healthy (Chicken Caesar Salad = 1010 calories)
  4. Replace pasta with zucchini strips (in one serving you could save 248 calories
  5. No sodas (one 16 ounce soda with three refills equals = 747 calories) – by the
  6. Desserts – go with fruits
  7. Snacking – add a  protein to snacks because it makes you feel fuller and it gives you more fuel for your muscles
  • Danny…quit blubbering dude.  “That dude needs a lexipro”  – Kelly (my wife)
  • (challenge is to move across balance beam above water)  Can those life vests really keep them afloat?  They look ridiculous!!  Are they life jackets from NASA?  Helmets?  Really.   “Put a shark in the water and then we’re talking!” – Kelly (my wife)
  • Total pounds lost as a collective group =  155 lbs!!! (Julio lost 19 lbs…whew)
  • No one is going home!!!  (wish that would have happened last week)  Let’s see what happens week #3…

    Curtis Stone could make me change my opinion of men who have highlights and use too much hair product. I love that Aussie.

  2. Karen says:

    I did not catch much of the show last night, dad is in the hospital and not doing very well, please keep him in your prayers.

    The weight loss was great though, very proud of Julio, hope he can keep it up, I am glad that no one went home.
