I agree tbh.  It was obvious to any one who has had a panic attack that Margie was having one.  You come up with the most ridiculous scenarios and excuses and truly believe you will die in the midst of a PA so don't think she was carrying on.  I think she was bloody brave to end up doing it too.  

Also just eye rolled the entire time at the so-called 'abseiling' because as mentioned it SO wasn't.  He was just being lowered to the ground - weird and hardly terrifying.

The skydiving would have terrified me!  Looked amazing but I don't think I could do it.

I can't stand Margie but gee I felt sorry for her last night.
I have a terrible fear of heights also and sat watching her with the palms of my hands and soles of my feet perspiring just thinking about what she was being told to do. No way would I have gone through with it. Congratulations to her.

Re the abseiling - My 13yo son said "That's not how you abseil!"  

I'd say Graham was too heavy for the other challenges.

No way on earth would I have done either sky diving or bungee/swing thing.  Uh uh.  No way.

Ooo yeah that would be so much fun.. But poor Margie.. even though I cant stand her.. My partner said he would of pushed her.
Glad they all faced their fears though and gave it a go..

Haven't seen TBL in ages as I got bored, just been catching up via this thread.

Do NOT like Margie one bit, BUT! Totally understand her reaction regarding bungy jumping (or skydiving? not sure which one it was sorry). I would have been the same. I did sky diving once, I did not want to do it but felt like I "had" to, it is quite clear on the video that during the free fall I was having a panic attack, I could not breathe. Now, 3-4 years later if anything blows in my face (hairdryer, wind, whatever), I can't breathe.

I wouldn't wish that upon anyone (and like I said, I do NOT like Margie!!!!!).

Oh yeah, I agree, respect to  her for jumping,, no way would I do it. original.gif

I agree, I think Graham did that pretend abseil due to his weight. Most of those bunge places have weight limits.

Yeah I heard this too! Or when she said her and Michelle should go into the hot sauna. Margie wants Michelle, BAD!!


Yeh LOL she does want her bad. But then i thnk Michelle said something like"you are a sh*tstirer Margie" Or something like that.

Oh, I forgot to say, I read in the paper the other day that Lydia needs a full knee reconstruction. I am guessing she hasn't had it done yet, so not sure how she could run as in the footage the other night.

just thought i'd pop in and let you all know that the finale is being filmed this Sunday 29th April!!!  I thought it was filmed live?  My mum was offered a ticket to the show (she said no as it's my brother's birthday and she wasn't sure about the airfair costs as we are in Perth) When she told me I told her she was crazy and to tell her friend she has changed her mind!   I hope she goes!!

Does that mean it finishes next week?? It is usually only recorded a day or two before it is aired isn't it?? I know it isn't "live" as such.

The promos for Masterchef are heating up so it probably does end soon.

ETA I read Masterchef starts May 6 and ch 10 waiting for TBL to finish.

Biggest loser finale is Monday 7th may. That's what it says on the website. The day after masterchef's premiere.

Margie should have been penalized for having the course attendant get her shoe.  She should of either had to go back herself or wait until everyone passed her before she could start again

#115 popsicle :)

Posted 25 April 2012 - 08:09 PM

Oh frig!!!!!

How funny was Margie - "Where's my shoe" "I need my shoe"

Well, love, your shoe is where you left it!

Oh thanks Margie - first time you have given me a laugh all season

Oh it is getting very painful watching loser since Bek has been back. Why oh why does she have to do 80 percent of the contestant commentating. I can't stand her voice and her facial expressions  rolleyes.gif

oh I was sad for graham then...sad.gif

#118 ~rollercoaster~

Posted 25 April 2012 - 08:37 PM

Also sad about Graham going. It would have to be the worst way to go. Not knowing the calories of an unknown food.

#119 cordyline

Posted 25 April 2012 - 09:08 PM

Yes poor graham. I was stumped by how the bratwurst was the third lowest calories. I thought for sure a big fat sausage would have more calories than the cheese and the chocolate.

Margie was hilarious "wheres my shoe!!!!!" even though the guy got her shoe for her, I still think she is the strongest competitor and deserved to win that challenge, and the fact she came back from so far behind showed that.

#121 Chocolate Addict

Posted 25 April 2012 - 10:41 PM

The sausage was only 140g and the chocolate had nuts in it so I can see how the sausage was less than the chocolate.

I thought the rosti would not be the highest, it only had 20g of butter.

I feel for Graham but at the same time it goes to show they really don't teach them much about nutrition. They tell them what they can have but do they tell them why they can't have the other stuff? Are they given calorie guide books, and if so do any of them bother to look at them??
In the real world they will be exposed to a range of foods and they need to be able to make a judgement call on which is the least worst item on a menu.

Thats a good point and exactly what i was thinking when Alex said he didn't know anything about potatoes, just that he wasn't allowed them!?!

Not really setting them up with the tools they need to make good choices on the outside.

Sad to see Graham go, I really liked him. I hope he makes his aim of 110kg for finale. I think he's going to have a lovely face once that huge chin finally goes.


#123 Chchgirl

Posted 26 April 2012 - 08:22 AM

I felt a bit sad for Graham too, I was a bit stumped on calories too! I knew rasperries and hot chocolate would be low, but the rest got me a bit confused!

Graham used to annoy me but I like him more as the season has gone on, I think he really clicked around the 50 kilo mark and I think he will make it to 110kg by finale..I felt he was quite gracious leaving last night..

#124 Sue Heck

Posted 26 April 2012 - 09:15 AM

Why don't they have master classes with janelle anymore at least the contestants and audience were being exposed to ideas about nutrition and Mayr they would have had a better idea about the food choices last night. When you do an exam you expect it to be based on something you should have studied for. I thought last night was a bit unfair.


#125 Tea~for~two

Posted 26 April 2012 - 09:35 AM

Poor Graham

I have a feeling he's going to be one of the contestants that puts on all their weight again after the show sad.gif

And I agree - the show should focus more on education and less on twists and mind games

It could be such a beneficial show, but ATM I think it's just a cheap rating grabbing reality show.

On another note: my favourite moment from last night was when Margie tried to tackle Commando
