Perhaps the entire loosing team will go up for elimination?   Just a thought

I think Margie thinks she will be safe because she has the two red girls and she is assuming the blacks won't vote for her either but if she is up for elimination I reckon Simon can talk the other blacks in to voting for her which would see her out and you never know he may be able to persuade Lisa as well. Really hoping she goes up for elimination this week.  Even at the end of that challenge when Lisa was coming across the beam with the last thing she was standing on the oldies side cheering Lisa on.

I was thinking this as well. Given the big red slug is the biggest threat, for potential weight loss and challenges,they'd be daft not to get rid of her.

The add for Monday shows all white in Elimination room with Margie and Selena at one end... I am thinking that loosing team both goes for elimination then has to eliminate as I could not see anyone else in the room...

Selena bugs me slightly more then Margie. I just don't understand why you'd go on such a show and not be prepared to do the work. Margie is a total b**ch, but she works hard.

#32 EssentialBludger

Posted 10 March 2012 - 12:11 PM

I also don't think she's being 'bullied' as everyone makes her out to be. Luke behaved in a similar manner towards Hamish, yet no one could stand Hamish and apparently HE was being the lazy whinger?!

If it continues when they're singles, then yeah, maybe. But right now they're a team and need everyones 100% effort to get above the line.

I would then split the vote and let the lowest % go home...

They should vote Margie out on the basis of her being the biggest threat, but I doubt they're smart enough to do it.



#35 penfold

Posted 11 March 2012 - 11:24 AM

I think the Hamish/Michelle romance is sweet but I don't want to see so much of it.  I cringe at moments like Michelle reading a love letter from Hamish or cameras showing their kiss at Bathers Pavillion. Those are private, intimate moments and I don't want to be there with them.  I hide my head under the cushion when i'm watching. I'm not cringing at their romance rather the way biggest loser is capatlizing on it.  

I think they would be smart to vote Margie out - she's a hard worker and a contender to win.  But I'll be disappointed if she is gone.  She's a entertaining.  I laugh out loud at some of the stuff she says.  The show will be very dull without her.

#36 pp67

Posted 11 March 2012 - 11:56 AM

Totally agree penfold... Margie is a hoot with some of the stuff she comes out with.  I was thinking she'd make a great Pre-School Teacher just cos she's such a dag!! LOL  tongue.gif   I do think she's definitely playing the game and is trying to get into the other/weaker contestants heads.

Hmmm? Not sure about that. original.gif  I think Hamish has 'grown on' people because he did show an attempt at changing his ways and his romance made him feel better about himself. Poor Selena, I don't think the penny has dropped with her but I do see her being bullied by more than one of them.
I've never had time for anyone who sees someone's weakness and works on it.......although I know it's a game and Selena should have known this was a possibility sad.gif
Perhaps they didn't choose wisely when they put Selena in the mix?

Oh my goodness NO for Margie and pre school teaching. I could see her picking on the underdog and laughing at the kids when they hurt themselves.
I don't see the 'dag' side of her---just the manipulative one.

Agreed! It will be a prime oppertunity to have her taken out.


As for Selena, I don't think she's being bullied. I think she's experiencing the social consequences of her behaviour.  shrug.gif

Awww I must be a bit of a bleeding heart aswell... I think its a bit cute Hamish and Michelle.. I really hope they have a long fruitful relationship.

Cannot stand Margie or Lydia and hope they both go soon! but being the manipulators they are they will be right there at the end.

I must be a bleeding heart for Selena too sad.gif
I recognise her behaviours as being annoying but I see her behaviours as a result of her life up until this point.
I feel that she has possibly been isolated to some extent due to her deafness and has not really had the opportunity to know how to act in social situations. I think some of the others have recognised this in her and are using it to her detriment...ie bullying.
You don't suddenly learn how to behave amongst your peers if you've never had the opportunity. I don't think she was ready for Biggest Loser.

#43 DreamFeralisations

Posted 11 March 2012 - 01:30 PM

I am as big a romantic as the next, but I hate (a) that TBL is making such a focal point of the Michelle/Hamish thing that it reminds me of the sort of harassment that 10 year olds go through when they might "like" someone; and (b) I think that, in the end, Michelle could do way better than Hamish, and the show and situation may have forced her into a "relationship" that really is a friendship.  Oh, and © they should be taught how to let each other down gently, because rejection may well make them back to where they started from.

#44 Molokai

Posted 11 March 2012 - 01:42 PM

I agree with STBG about Margie. She acts the 'dag' when it suits her to try and garner favour or laughs when she wants to, but I think her default position is manipulative shrew. I don't find her amusing at all.

ETA I also agree with everything suziej just said.

Posted 11 March 2012 - 01:46 PM

I'd love to see Margie out as I hate the way she's manipulated the challenge.  I dont understand why they aren't voting out the threats???  It's all about who they like, who they think needs to be in the house...  It's hard to pick a winner at the moment, but I would pick one of the red girls to win.

She does have a supportive family, now. So she hasn't been socially isolated completely. Furthermore, she does say she likes to turn her hearing aid off, and thus isolating herself.  Tounge1.gif

The problem, I think, is that she's been mollycoddled and it's cemented her victimhood. Furthermore, her tantrums and behaviour are also bullying, but in a passive aggressive way. If she's confronted, she runs away.

People who behave like her are difficult to deal with, because they're non-confrontational and passive, which makes pulling them up for their poor behaviour (or lack of action/behaviour/etc) difficult as they play the poor victim card. I can see why the contestants are frustrated.  shrug.gif

This isn't too much of a spoiler but only read on if you want Hamish/Michelle & Shannan news..........................................




















Hamish was on my local radio station the other day and he said he was moving to Melbourne to be with Michelle and it's true love wub.gif

Margie is just like what we see on the show!

And for those missing Shannan, Hamish was asked about him and he said maybe you should keep watching wink.gif
