The Biggest Loser: Couples

What is up with The Biggest Loser?  After the last season with the families and the most annoying group of contestants ever, they finally start a season with good, likable contestants and then send nine of them home.  It was as if they wanted to call this The Biggest Loser: Misery Season.  Nearly no one was happy and I don’t know how one week at the ranch is going to allow all of the people that were sent home to be competitive when they come back in thirty days.  What’s the point of that anyway?
