Debbie Accuses Bonnie of Crying for Sympathy on 'Biggest Loser' Premiere (VIDEO)

'The Biggest Loser' 12 PremiereIn a rather abrupt shift during a conversation on 'The Biggest Loser' (Tue., 8PM ET on NBC), one of the contestants accused another of perhaps turning on the waterworks to garner sympathy.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

The whole exchange was strange to watch, as it came after a loss at the Weigh-In for the Blue Team.

Debbie was talking about how she had a support system at home, as it seemed likely it would be either her or Bonnie going home. But then, out of nowhere, she turned and called Bonnie's tears annoying.

Generally, this early on in the competition, when a team is tasked with eliminating someone they tend to focus on who faltered the most on the scale. In this case, while both Debbie and Bonnie underperformed, Bonnie's 4 lbs weight loss was easily the worst of the night.

But because of Debbie's foot-in-mouth syndrome, it was she who paid the price and got eliminated. They barely know each other, so it's a terrible strategy to lash out at someone so unexpectedly. Especially when you're on the chopping block.

That said, it was sounding like Debbie was trying to say she was okay with going home, before she attacked Bonnie. So maybe this is what she wanted all along?

All in all, though, it wasn't a great start for new trainer Anna Kournikova. She was joined by Dolvett Quince, who is a complete unknown to television viewers but proved his chops both with his attitude in the gym and with the contestants, and on the scales.

Granted, Kournikova was perhaps tasked with the biggest challenge. This season, the contestants were broken up into teams by age, and Kournikova has the oldest group. She said then that she couldn't push them as hard, but it looks like she didn't push them enough.

What did you think of the new trainers? Do you miss Jillian Michaels?

Bonnie crys because she's playing on everyone's emotions and playing the husband card. I'm sorry for her loss, but she's using it to get ahead. Also, I knew once Debbie called her out that everyone on the team was going to vote her off. Just look at the team - hopefully everyone else will get tired of her crying and feeling sorry for herself. Enough said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bonnie's constant crying annoyed me, too. However, Debbie should not have called her out in front of her team and all us TV viewers. Debbie says she has nothing personal against anyone (Bonnie), yet she also says she's annoyed by Bonnie's "waterworks." Really? Sounds pretty personal to me. While Bonnie describes herself as "straight forward and to-the-point," I'd call her overly aggressive. Good riddance to a trouble-maker.

Had she kept her mouth shut, she would still be there.

I cringe every season when they do these first workouts because it seems like a deliberate attempt at injuring the contestants physically or psychologically. Jillian was always the worst. She had no background in counseling but would spout about the need to emotionally break someone as a motivational tool. It was awful and good riddance.

As for Debbie's departure, she brought it upon herself. She took cheap personal shots at her teammate rather than emphasize why she deserved to stay. She did not have Bonnie's pre-existing knee issues which should have translated into a greater weight loss, as noted by their trainer after the weigh-in. Meanwhile her other teammate Becky, managed to shed 10 pounds,while off campus at a funeral. If ever there was a reason to eat, that would have been it for me.

FYI, Jillian's mother is a psychologist/counselor, who made at least 1 appearance on the show, working with the contestants. So, I would say that Jillian DID have a psychology background, through her mom.

Gee Debbie and you weren't a biotch, right? MAYBE had you kept your anger to yourself instead of giving Bonnie such grief last night, you'd still be on the show. But YOU ticked others off! Keeping it real, sometimes is keeping it shut! What stupidity.

i found new trainor a nice change. these people humiliate themselves on tv for a chance at a new life and for the money but i am not a fan of how they are sometimes put down. Anna is a breath of fresh air and let's not forget she has 50 and 60 year olds, not 27 year olds to train and shape. Dont miss ego Jillian at all. Jillian got what she wanted ... fame, her own supplement line, training videos and LOTS of other money grabbers. WELCOME ANNA!
