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