Exclusive: Is Taj Robinson Dropping Out of the Competition on My Diet Is Better Than Yours?: ‘I’m Done’

01/21/2016 at 01:04 PM ET

Is Taj Robinson about to leave the competition?

In this exclusive clip from Thursday’s episode of My Diet Is Better Than Yours, Robinson refuses to pick up the pace as she walks around a track with host Shaun T and her trainer, Jennifer Cassetta.

“This is it,” Robinson says, referring to her slow stroll around the course. “When I’m ready to do more I’ll do more. When I’m not, then I’m not moving to everybody else’s time, I’m moving to mine.”

Though she just started with her new trainer, Cassetta, in the last episode after ditching trainer Jovanka Ciares, Robinson is already having trouble with Cassetta’s coaching techniques.

“Jennifer’s style of motivating me isn’t working today,” Robinson says. “It seems she’s getting more unhappy or disappointed.”

Even Insanity creator extraordinaire Shaun T can’t get Robinson out of this funk.

“If you take one step out of that stubbornness, you’re going to succeed, even if it’s just 5 seconds faster than what you would’ve done,” he says. “C’mon, can’t you just walk faster with me?”

But there’s little hope, and when Shaun T asks Robinson if she “even wants to be here,” that seems to send her off the edge.

“See, you just took it to a whole ‘nother level. You know what, I’m done,” Robinson says, as she walks off the track.

We’ve already lost two trainers in four episodes of the competition—but will a contestant go next?

She’d rather remain stubborn than lose the weight – her choice.

Taj is only full of excuses and has a loser mentality. Bye

Use the Swedish Diet.
Learn to eat like the Swedish and you get thin.

You can eat chocolate, yogurt, and all foods you want when you learn how to combine the right foods together.

When researchers combined chocolate and another food together they doubled the weight loss.

When you combine yogurt with a certain food the Swedish showed you double fat loss on the body in half the time.

She has an awesome opportunity and can’t even show her trainer respect. Its hard for me to watch.

I think Taj is battling something bigger than her weight. She’s mentioned in one episode that she’s not getting the support she needs from the one person that matters most to her, her wife. Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight without the support of their family knows it’s an up hill battle and that much harder to accomplish. If your mind and heart aren’t in a good place, you will not succeed, no matter how much help you have.

She’s so dramatic! !! I can’t stand her!! She’s f***ING annoying!! Stop being lazy!

Loulou on

Taj’s attitude is her biggest problem. She’s has a very negative attitude and MENTALLY needs help. Her trainer was awesome and she tried really hard to help Taj. Sorry we would have been boxing by now!!! Her attitude sucks!!! Get some mental help Taj!!! Your lost!! She should have got kicked off! How she make it on the show anyway!

Benito suarez on

What a negative whinebag. Its hard to watch such self loathing lazy garbage. Yea sweetheart its going to be hard. If it was easy more people would be dropping 20lbs at a time. News flash this sh@$ is hard. Really hard and nothing but respect to those who powered through the challenge. NO respect for quitters. The world owes you nothing. Wake up and realize it takes twice the time and energy to come up with excuses than it does to shut the f up and get the job done. And your choice of words makes you look ignorant not educated. You are not a victim. You are not a victim. You are not a victim. You are not a victim.

And she is a teacher? What a poor role model for children and students!!!. She suffers from entitlement issues and she has a horrible ghetto attitude.

Sabotaj on

Control freak Sabotaj Robinson will tell herself that it doesn’t matter what any of us think of her (including those who need her examples and guidance the most… Her students); then she’ll retreat to her small Taj MyHall bubble wonder why her intimate relationships don’t to work. She seems eggshell fragile and blew a great opportunity to change her life and inspire kids who used to look up to her.

D on

Taj is such a bitch. She makes excuses for everything. She never gave the first expert a chance and she disrespected the second expert. No wonder she is getting a divorce. No one could get along with a bitch like that.

Sean on

She’s got a major attitude problem, and blames everyone but herself for her problems and failures. She DOES need a therapist. Glad to see her leave, and bring her negativity with her. That poor trainer had to put up with a real bi*ch!

I was pretty sad when I got to the Namco Bandai booth however and found out they only brought their fighting games to be played there, which I didn’t bother to try. PC games take you away from your real life miseries and give you complete peace of mind. The overall game is based on strategy and has good graphics, courtesy of the Unreal Engine.
