Finale: The scale seen from space

The finale arrived! The scale seen from space was unveiled! The eliminated contestants strolled onto the stage to resounding cheers. And most of those came from my front room. Pete of the Big Heart, is jaw-dropping fit and handsome.

Of course, the others aren't anything to sneeze at. It was hard out there in the real world for five long months sans personal trainer and 24-hour camera crew--but they made it. Most of them.

Nick was absent--and I'd love to know why. And Katherine looked uncomfortable and embarrassed. She did not have a significant weight loss over the lengthy time span allotted the contestants. She's a lawyer-right? Busier than sin and blind like Justice, herself. Maybe she just lost heart.

Caroline's cleavage introduced...oh, sorry...Caroline brought the trainers out. Jillian looked perky in her black leather lift-and-separate Dominatrix party dress. It was then time for the members of the Eleminada to weigh-in to see who will win the $100,000. The greatest percentage of total weight loss wins. Here are the final weigh-in results for the 10 eliminated players.

Please hold your applause until the end of this recap. Yes...they all look amazing...gorgeous...strong...healthy. Thin!

Pete won the $100,000 prize by having the highest percentage of total weight lost over everyone else. Pete obviously feels GREAT! We enjoyed it when he scooped Caroline up and swung her around. Live TV can be so much fun!

The three finalists were introduced on stage and after facing their former selves in the form of season flashbacks, they took to the scale. Seth, then Suzy, and finally Matt. First place wins $250,000, the runner up wins $50,000, and the third place player wins $25,000 provided by Jell-O.

Here are the final weigh-in results for the final three contestants:

Seth
Starting Weight: 291 lbs.
Current Weight: 168 lbs.
Total Weight Lost: 123 lbs.
Percentage: 42.27 percent

Suzy
Starting Weight: 227 lbs.
Current Weight: 132 lbs.
Total Weight Lost: 95 lbs.
Percentage: 41.85 percent

Matt
Starting Weight: 339 lbs.
Current Weight: 182 lbs.
Total Weight Lost: 157 lbs.
Percentage: 46.31 percent

This means that Matt is The Biggest Loser! But Matty is more than a weight loss winner! He announced he'd quit drinking; that he'd been sober for nine months! Outstanding news! Congratulations, Matt! It was obvious that he was having a difficult run at home. The camera crew followed him to a pub where he once imbibed and consumed. His "buddies" were less than supportive. They teased him. They called him names. Chances are real good they'll be sucking up to him now to borrow a buck. I hope Matty tosses them all out on their ears. Speaking of ears...Matt has cauliflower ears! Does this man not wear protective headgear while wrestling? Oh! Wrestling! Matt's back with a vengeance, wrestling through head-trauma for a chance to win a place on the Olympic Team.

Good for Matt!

And then there's Suzy, the $25,000 winner. She's no longer a buxom blonde. She's a perky little thing undergoing a continual transformation of personal growth and self-acceptance. The woman needs to learn how to self-comfort...but that will come!

Seth looks bloody fantastic. Mama! He's hot! He proved to himself that food is not his ally--or his nanny--even when his son became seriously ill. Seth turned not to comfort foods, save for one lone burrito. And it shows. Holy moly. Seth. Seth. Seth. In one word: YUMMY.

Season Two proved exciting and motivating.

Anyone ready to make that videotape entry yet? If so, and you get selected...I'll be seeing you--because I'm hooked!
