If last night's episode of "Biggest Loser" was supposed to help viewers empathize with player Conda Britt, it didn't work. A member from each team had to go home for the week, with their respective trainers. Their weight would be the only one that counted for the weigh-in.

Bob and Dolvett were wise to choose Daphne and Conda, to put some distance between the two warring women. Despite Conda having a two-pound advantage, she still lost the weigh-in when Daphne pulled out a 12-pound loss. Makes me a believer in Bob's stair-climbing regimen -- 103 floors in one hour! Daphne was motivated with revenge for her brother's ousting last week at the hands of the red team. At least Conda cried instead of claiming she was cheated, as she did when she lost the face-off with Cassandra.
As I predicted in my last post about "Biggest Loser," Roy was the next to be voted off. It made me even more disgusted with the Red team. In a season called "No Excuses," they should be ashamed of the silly excuses they gave about Roy "losing focus." He lost 9 pounds! Buddy only lost 7, and Kimmy, 4. Hearing that Mark is a youth pastor, I wonder what his congregation back home is thinking when they see his actions. To his credit, Roy was a class act, very gracious about being voted off for bogus reasons. He's probably relieved that he doesn't have to babysit these immature back-stabbers anymore.
Makes me wonder if the producers are paying Conda to act up. I can only think of one person I've known who was such a bully in real life.
So Daphne had her moment against Conda, but I predict the game-playing is gonna keep coming, based on the previews. It's pretty obvious that Conda, Mark and Kimmy can pull strings with Jeremy, Chism and Megan. Those three black team members had some suspiciously low weight losses. I suspect they were told to help give Conda the one-pound advantage, because it would be easy for them to vote off Daphne or Chris. The preview showed someone with a weight gain, and I wouldn't be surprised if Black team members deliberately gained weight in order to get rid of someone on their team. Even if the teams get switched up, the old alliances are still there.
It's getting painful to watch, because it seems that the meanest people are going to game-play their way to the finals. Emily, Cassandra and Daphne don't stand a chance against the group forces, and Buddy should start watching his back as well. A final with Conda, Jeremy, Mark, Chism or Kim wouldn't be worth watching.
