Maybe I am not used to Jillian anymore but I thought she was extra hard on them last night.

The not sure of the names yet but I think the lawyer lady is going to get on my nerves as well as Pam...the older dark haired lady on the white team.

Had a hard time telling the two guys apart on that team as well they looked a like but one had more facial hair. Kept saying to my husband is that the one with the little boy...

Have to remember it is on Mondays now.

I'm so glad the show is back and that Jillian is back. I heard the trainers say that they are hard on the contestant because they may only be on the show for 1 or 2 weeks and they need to make sure that they learn what they need to learn in that period of time. Look at T.C. (who went home). Obviously he learned something and is doing great at home after only one week on the show.

Jillian knows where these people are coming from. She weighed 175 in high school.

I keep thinking what an abusive b***c Jillian is! The other 2 trainers are so encouraging, and all she does is yell at them to quit! She keeps saying what is wrong with my team, can't she see it is her?

I disagree the bunch Jillian is stuck with are a bunch of whiners.

I watched last night and I also thought Jillian was borderline bullyish. I think that was why her team did worse than the other two. I realize you have to be tough (tough love). As an athlete, I know coaches are firm and tough on you--I just think she is over the top and acts like she has something to prove. But people love her so... And look, I ran several miles last month and husband says to me, "Know what'll help your muscles and shin splints? Get in the river and stand there for 5 minutes." The river was so cold--my God, it was December after all!--that I got in and decided I could not stand it. He went all Jillian on me and I stayed in the water until my legs were numb. Nothing like tough love, lol.

Oh and it did help my muscles and shin splints. :P

I'm watching it now. I use to like Jillian, but I don't know what's gotten into her. I agree trainers need to be tough, but she's mean.

I like Jillian. I don't beleive that she has changed all that much. What i do beleive is that she is working with a bunch of wimps. In all honesty if you have watched the show and seen jillian in action you know how she is. Pam i think her name is was so excited that she was on her team, but now she is one of the worst. I can see where jillian is comming from it has to be very frustrating to have a team falling apart at the seams like that.

At least thus far there isn't another conda on the show.

That's Nikki's facebook fan page. Her and her DH were on a show called Mobbed, that's how he proposed to her and then they got married right away on the show. She says she's lost 50 pounds so far on her own and plans to lose 50 more. She's also a former plus size model.

Jillian is the reason I've stopped watching the show.

What I find hard to understand, is how by this season, they did not already realize how hard Jillian would be on them. They must have known going in. Heck, some of them were even excited to find out Jillian would be their trainer.

And yet, while during exercising/training the white team seems to have such a hard time, they did awesome at the challenges. I was so thrilled that white won the last challenge when they only had 2 people who could do it!

I really wish last night's white member (I forget his name...) had lost the necessary 6 pounds instead of 5. I really did not want one of the white team to have to go home.

That first lady still bugs the heck out of me! Quiting on her team before the first weigh-in? Of course they were going to lose the weigh-in right there and then. I felt so bad for that guy who was sent home on Sunday's episode. So unfair.

Also, Jillian doesn't stay THAT tough all the way through. She sure comes across as a b* and a bully the first 2 or 3 episodes. But once people settle down and she sees people who are serious about working and changing, she becomes nicer.

I felt so bad for him too. I was so hoping that they would not send him home because their team member left.

This is my first time watching and I couldn't believe they set them on a treadmill at 5 mph. What was the point of that. Some of these people have never walked 3 mph and I think the same thing would of been happening.

At least Jillian sat her team down and asked them what it would take and she agreed. She found out herself it didn't pay to yell and scream at them-duh!
