what do you all think about the elimination this sunday? what's the twist? maybe the bottom two go, so there's a top 3, and not a top 4?

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.



They have all the calorie counting books and tools, it is up to them how much effort they put in learning calorie values. When they had another challenge with questions on this sort of thing most of them were pretty woeful too. I don't think Graham is always the most motivated person.

I am guessing that at the end of that huge race your mind is racing and if you had more time to think you could have chosen differently. I didn't realise they said the rosti was cooked with 20 grams of butter, I wonder if Graham realised it was only 20 grams.

I was thinking the same thing Tiger_85.

I too felt sorry for Graham but like the pp'ers they are obviously not learning anything about the calorie content in food just that they cant eat it.  On the other hand though if they had watched the show previously then they would have known there would be a calorie portion in this challenge and maybe, at least learnt a couple of things.  Graham should have realised that the potato with only 20g of butter would have been less than the chocolate.

My other gripe is why they use calories all the time and not kilojoules.  This wont help them in the real world either because it is normally listed on packaging in kilojoules not calories (that annoys me in the Michelle Bridges 12WBT as well).

This is a peeve of mine as well and have mentioned it in a previous thread. We are Australian and use kilojoules ffs! All Australian food packages are in kj!

I have never understood Kj and always use Calories......much prefer that!!!!!!

Missed it last night but really they sholu dbe making an effort to learn more about it themselves.....they are going to have to cope on the outside so they should start taking control now! The info is there for them - they shouldn't have ot be spoon-fed ('scuse the pun).... LOL

It actually said on the card in front of it "Potato Rosti 20 grams butter" (or something to that effect).

As soon as I saw that I thought it was a better option than some of the other items. Turns out it was only better than the chocolate! lol

Agree with everyone re Graham.

I really really hope Margie doesn't win (even though I think she will win), I hated her cockiness during the super challenge last night. They should have made her get her snow shoe, not have the attendant get it. And she carried on every time she passed someone....ugh

Re Calorie counting, I wish it would all be the same too. I use My Fitness Pal and it's all in calories and when you go to buy stuff it's in kJ and I have to convert it.

I felt bad for Graham too because it really was an abrupt departure, but he did leave his run in the house a bit late and has had nine lives already as a result.

I agree with a PP in that I suspect a double-elimination is coming on Sunday. If previous gossip was right and Alex, Margie and Brenda are the top three, then perhaps Bek and Kasey are going?

How sharp was Bek snatching that hot chocolate from Kasey? Poor Kasey, not the sharpest knife in the drawer. However, Bek's true colours emerging yet again so I won't be sorry to see her gone.

Ok in that case there is no excuse, he should have been able to work that out. Shows how much attention I was paying happy.gif

Poor Graham. he was never going to last too much longer though.

I think they should do more challenges/contests around making a nutritious meal. its not all about calories. See if they can make a meal that has a good portion of protein, veges and carbs. Cause u need them all to be healthy.

I agree - of course, it appears that they are doing no carbs, which won't help when real life comes back into play.  Perhaps have a "normal day" and get them to do an exercise routine/eating plan for a day in a normal life - throw in a couple of kids and a full-time job - you know "real life"...

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.


I agree with the cooking classes and nutrition, something sadly lacking in the series this year.

I'm not so surprised about the elimination though, I've watched the series from the very first all those years ago and from what I remember they have always done the elimination via food after the superchallenge.

I'm always surprised about potatoes and carbs. It is not illegal to have potatoes, it is how you cook them. I've lost weight many a time eating carbs, carbs are so necessary especially for energy when exercising..it's how you serve your carbs..everyone I know who has ditched the carbs lost weight quick but never kept it off..

I am not sure why they don't do potatos either. But I remember last year they were eating rice but were not having potatos as a contestant mentioned it in another calorie challenge.

Remembering though this is a competition and they are trying to win $200K, I have heard the trainers outside the show talking about how its a show and on the outside of course you do things differently.
