Phil, you are awesome. What a great surprise for Amy. You really are one of the good ones. (so is my husband) I’ve learned the editors can portray people how they choose by showing clips of people at their best or at their worst. They’ve really let you shine while others on the show look ridiculous. We’re rooting for you! We hated to see you get voted off, but what a sweet reunion you had with your family. Keep up the hard work and go for that $100k! God bless!

Phil is one of my favorite contestants. It sucks that he and Amy had to go. I’d have preferred they celebrate their anniversary on the ranch and that Heba and Vicky were gone. Anyway, I hope Phil kicks ass and wins the $100k challenge. He looks great on the after video clips (so does Amy for that matter)

Don’t let all that “NOISE” (Brady,Vicki & Heba) hinder your weight loss. Keep the focus & good luck. :)

Phil you rock, and its better you didnt stoop to “their” level.
They are Truly mean and evil and your wife are lovely people..your wife is as sweet as can be!

I’ve enjoyed watching the Biggest Loser because it is about dedicated people working hard to make positive changes to their lives. There is nothing inspirational about the “evil trio”. It was good to see Phil defend himself without going down to their level. He represents the best part of the Biggest Loser. and he should be proud. I’m hopeful that the producers didn’t realize that Vicki, Heba and Brady had these personality traits going in. If this is the future direction for the show then they’ll have to look to the Big Brother crowd for viewers. Just take a look at Vicki’s blog to see the backlash from current viewers.

Hey Phil! I’ve watched every second of this show. You and your wife are awesome people. It drives me crazy to see “Vicky and Company” act the way they’ve acted toward you. Keep strong. Keep your chin up.

Hi… Today at lunch, the table behind me was having a very interesting conversation about a “plan in progress”… Sorry, I didn’t mean to ease drop but what they were saying peaked my intrest so being the nosey person I am, I began to listen!! I won’t divulge their conversation but bits of it were they were talking about church, loosing weight, biggest looser, american Idol, rascal flatts, writing songs etc… all of which are subjects I can relate to… one bit of the conversation one of the men said… “…we were there for season six…” I looked up and told the man I was sitting with, That’s Phil from the biggest looser! I don’t want to turn around and gawk, what does he look like??” Of course all he said was, “about my size, bald, brown go-tee”… well, that could be 30% of the american male population…LOL. Anyway, when we got up to leave, I finally had a chance to look at the man and sure ‘nough, there sat Phil at the table right behind me!! Wow, he looks great!! Phil, if you read this, good luck in your new adventure!!!
