I do love Bob and think he is a sweetheart and would respond much better to him than to Jillian (who would make me want to do violent and painful things to her if she were screaming at me like she does) - but Jillian's teams always seemed to lose the most weight.

I would much rather have Bob as a trainer, though.

Bob's my favorite as well!!

but Jillian's teams always seemed to lose the most weight

I would really like to see one and two years later before I would comment to heavily on that for one reason, Bob seems to get to the core of the problems people are having with the food and it seems like he stays in close contact with the at home people. It seems to me that he would motivate them to keep it off and make them feel as though he is genuinely proud of them as the time passes.
I would like to see season one blue and red teams today! I think the Blue team would be healthier and would make smarter food choices IMHO.

I heart Bob!

I love his attitude and he is so motivating. He is one of the things which makes the Biggest Loser workout video bearable for me. Normally I hate exercise videos...

Bob is also one of the "star trainers" on Exercise TV - if you get Comcast On-Demand, you can access his videos at any time. And I THINK you can get some of them for free on ExerciseTv.tv (in their "Studio" section).

Love him!

I LOVE my boyfriend Bob. I am so glad that the trainers are now there at the weigh-ins because I loved his reaction to the numbers. I love him.

Me too...

Now why can't Bob be at my weigh-ins??? Seeing the way he was smiling and cheering his team on made me happy. I could use that kind of motivation. *Sigh*

Bob has always been my favorite. I know I would respond better to Bob's methods of training than the others. He jusy seems like an awesome human being.

Like you all, I adore Bob. If I were on the show, I would have made a beeline for him last night. Ok, even if I weren't on the show.

One small quibble (heading to the shallow end of the pool) - he really should have his shirt off more often.

Seeing the satisfaction he gets out of helping people, and the way he seems to genuinely care for each of them, inspires me to do better in my own fitness life.

Because it can't be said enough, I love Bob.

If I were ever on this show, I would definitely want Bob as my trainer. He seems to get more involved emotionally with the contestants.

He reminds me a lot of my trainer, which may explain why I spend half my time drooling on him and half my time wanting to lick every inch of his body.

Don't tell my boyfriend I said that.

Anyway, having a ridiculously hot trainer makes me want to work that much harder, to please him.

I think that having a crush on Bob burns some calories.

It would have been truly fantastic if everyone raced towards Bob, since they figured that being on a team with Kim was a worse fate than getting kicked off the show.

Ahhhh that would have made my day! I know I would have been pushing Jerry aside to get over to Bob first!!

Was it advertised that Bob was going to be appearing on DOOL? Not that I keep up with soap operas or watch them in general, but I reckon I would have heard something about him doing a cameo somewhere.

OK. I officially love Bob! When he encouraged Jerry after he "lost" the challenge, it was just a teeny crush. But when he brushed the hair aout of Patty's face and held her a little as she cried, it developed into pure love. He's ten times better than Kim. And now, he's comforting Amy? He's such a sweetheart.

I loved him like crazy already, but when he praised her as she finished the elliptical and then when he helped Amy, my heart just burst. Plus, my name is Patty. I'm overweight (but not like the Patty on BL) but losing too. In the gym, I pretend Bob is there pushing me on. It works! Now I need to pretend he's brushing the hair out of my face when I'm at the end of my workout (but I don't cry at mine).
I also loved how happy he was to see Jillian

Those two simple moves by Bob showed that he has compassion for the contestants. The fact that he went over to encourage one that wasn't even on his own team just solidified that...especially in sharp contrast to Kim's "You're making me look bad! They're going to blame me! ME! ME! MEEEE!!!!" whine. Bob seems to care about what happens to the people on the show. Kim seems to care only how what happens to the contestants on the show reflects on her.

Give me Bob any day!!

I like him, too. He's so sweet, and Southern, and, well, such a good boy. Bet he calls his mother every week and talks for two hours about whatever she wants to talk about.

I like Bob the best of all the trainers because I think he knows that self-esteem is such a huge factor. I usually just have this show on in the background, and my perception of Jillian and (uh, the blonde one) is that they tell people to power through it. Bob also seems to address the emotional components of weight loss. A person has to believe they have worth, too, it's not all just aerobics and weight training and eating carefully.

Did you all see my boyfriend Bob last night? He was 12 kinds of awesome! From the rallying of Jerry's spirits, to the heartfelt words of encouragement to Patty, to the concern for Amy, to the absolutely hot jump over to pick up and greet Jillian...it was all good. Love him!

I did, Torop, I did, and last night made me love him even MORE ... if that's even possible. I do agree with whomever posted here that we need more Shirtless!Bob. Gosh, that's a hot promo pic of him. And those tattooed arms ... Wow. He's a motivator all right.

Bob: Is he the perfect man/trainer/best friend or what?

I'm hopping on the Bob love boat. A compassionate man is a sexy man.

Are we sure he isn't gay? I asking that in a serious and most loving way, because he almost seems a bit too good to be true.

I mean, he can still be sexy AND gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just sayin.
