Reality Wrap- Week 3

Where does the time go? Survivor starts in a few hours and I haven't done my wrap!! I really need to write up a little at a time after each show and then publish it. I'll go over this past weeks's shows in reverse order of them showing.

The Biggest Loser~ We missed the first ep, and the 2nd ep really made Julio look like an ass, but he turned out to be a good guy. He's gone from over 400 to just under 300...mostly on his own. I like how the show jump started it for them. The big theme this week was eating out. The contestants were freaking out when they were locked out of the kitchen. BUT~ everyone can use some education when it comes to eating out. Mexican food was the perfect choice. That is probably where I overeat the most. I mean the salsa isn't bad, but the avenue that salsa is delivered to my mouth is!! They were so smart to send the chips back. I'd have gobbled up a few baskets. Rudy is a machine and is losing so much weight. He seems to be under the radar so far. He would be a good guess for winning it all, but it looks like they are shaking it up next weekend...and it looks like psycho woman gets control of picking teams. I'd like them to keep the show with the supportive, positive, feel good approach for the rest of the season. I think the weight loss results will be good.

Amazing Race~ I *LOVE* this show. I like how it started out with the pitstop floating up the river and dropping them off in an unknown place. I don't remember a pitstop moving before...but I have a poor memory, so it could have. Lance & girl were just SO out of sync. I can't imagine they will be around much longer. I think that the choice the word play on the detour should have been a better one, but Marcy & Ron tired to figure it out themselves. They should have just asked someone right away. I like Flight Time & Big Easy!

Survivor~ Well, I was wrong on who would be voted off. But it was a showdown between Ashley & Ben. They chose to get rid of toxic. I can't say that Russell is now showing heart, because he woosed out on his plan. I wonder if they are going to downplay him now. I am going to go out on a limb and say that the yellow team will win immunity this time and we will start to learn about the purple tribe. Shambo is my guess for first off from purple, but the way they showed her bonding with the yellow team has me wondering. Things are going to start shaking up on the purple team.
