The Biggest Loser Recap And Commentary: A Difficult Season Is Finally Over
Recap and Commentary by RTVC Senior Staff Writer Donna Emery

Conda did, ultimately lose over 100 pounds.
And, like season one’s Ryan, Jeremy did the work it took to win the title. So, kudos to him. Dude lost 200 pounds!
For a man who didn’t seem to have his heart in the process, at the start of the season, he picked up steam once he had the finish line in his sights.
He (unfortunately) won the final challenge (ya know: the one he said wasn’t “fair?”) and earned a spot at the finale. And, then he parlayed it into the win.
So, he won. He beat Kim by 10 pounds.
Kim looked absolutely stunning, svelte and fit. She looked and acted like a true winner, so, for her – her words were true. She does have her health back – and a new lease on life.
Conda also looked (relatively) amazing. Downplaying her braggadocio; she quietly mounted the scale and showed us she had done the work she had often seemed to shirk.
Though she hardly looks like a Baywatch cast member, she looks much slimmer - and has won the prize she most wanted: a healthier life for her and more years to spend with her daughter, Brooklyn.
So, how did the rest of them look?
Most looked amazing. Some were unrecognizable. They lost between 56 to 160 pounds; they all reduced their weights by at least 25%.
This season, they were weighed in by groups – and the selection seemed purposely planned, for suspense.
In each group there was one outstanding member; whose weight loss temporarily took center stage.
In the first group, it was a smiling (and newly blonde) Cassandra. She was eliminated by her BFF Emily. But it was the last person to weigh in – Mike – who lost 160 lbs. and 44.69% to win the at-home $100,000 prize.
Well, done, Mike. Victory must be sweet.
The Red team –led by Conda’s wrath - sent you packing, in the beginning; telling you that you needed to go home and conquer your personal demons. I don’t know if any of them truly expected you to do that.
But you did. Obviously. Looking good, dude.
The most amazing transformations?
Nancy (Cassandra’s grandma) who looks decades younger; Gail (who was beamingly grateful for her second chance) and “Santa” (Roy) - who looks so much better without the beard.
The one hour length of the show made it much easier to sit through. I’m glad we didn’t have lengthy paeans to these finalists; that would have been a bitter pill to swallow.
