I only started watching the whole show last season, but enjoyed it. I admire their determination.

I won't be watching this any longer. I have watched the last 6 or 7 seasons religiously, but did not enjoy last year at all with the new trainers and the way the show was. And now Jillian is gone to be replaced with a tennis pro? Anna Kournikova? Seriously? I cannot stand her. I think she will rbing this show to a screeching hault. She is very self absorbed and really is she qualified to be a trainer? I love Bob, but I will be tuning out this season. I used to really love this show too.

I'm going to watch the show. I enjoy watching to see the determination of the contestants, because the challenges are fun to watch, and because you can learn new things from the show (like how many calories are in a cup of strawberries with dark chocolate on them). And also because I love Alison. She's awesome (and beautiful).
I don't like Anna either, but I didn't like Jillian too. I do like Bob and glad he's still on. The third trainer, I don't know anything about him and I only caught half the show last night because I didn't even know it was on! Watching it on Hulu in a second. But the third trainer seems alright.
I find it interesting that they split them by age, but I think the older group was given a huge disadvantage by having Anna as their trainer. I think the numbers showed that.
Anna had a couple women lose 3 and 6 lbs each. Bob had a couple who lost over 30 each. The third trainer (I don't know his name), actually did a good job, but being the group of the youngest could have helped that. I think Bob should have had the Oldest and Anna the youngest.

I think Anna has gotten better looking with age, (although she still young) and is sincere with her group, but really... she is not the drill sargent type, and probably doesn't have a chance to compete with Bob or the new guy.

From time to time I catch the show. Was interested in seeing how Ana would do as a trainer. Uhm, her team is not going to loose nearly as much weight as the other trainers' team. All that crying she did and all the talking I just wanted to tell her to shut up already. Very touching that she ran out to get her team though.

Wish the participants could still stay on the show throughout the season so they can reach their goal. Love Bob but they need to bring Jillian back. The numbers Jillian's group puts up is usually higher than Bob's.

Like the other new trainer.

They really should do a season where for 3 weeks there are no eliminations. Give everyone a really good start in their weight loss journey. Then they can get tough on eliminations and do like 2/week for the next 3 weeks.

It was classy when the other teams ran out to walk-in with the older team. Like one of the guys said, we start together-we finish together.

Anna definitely needed to get a little tougher with her group. Sure, they are all the oldest and they might need to take it easy on their bodies, but when Debbie was continually saying to her "How about 3 min instead of 10" or "I think we're done, right, isn't our time up?" etc. Anna should have gotten in her face and told her to shut the heck up and keep working, and "I'll let you know when you're finished. If you don't shut up, I'll keep you working longer and longer and longer." She went too easy on them. They need to get yelled at a little bit.

What happened to the last two trainers..That Tara girl from New York and the Brazilian dancer dude.?
Is BL serious with Anna Kournakova.? I mean she isnt even a good tennis player. I guess they are trying to draw in male viewership or something. The African American guy might work out.
