* TheBadGuyWins: Season 13, where [[spoiler: [[TheScrappy Conda]]]] makes it into the final three and ends up losing...but [[spoiler: her brother ends up winning anyway]], probably also significantly benefiting her in the long run. It doesn't help that the other candidate in the final 3 (besides the two siblings) also had a rather spotty track record with fans.

* SenselessSacrifice: An infamous example occurred in the Season 13 Final Five. [[spoiler: Twice]]. The remaining 5 contestants caught wind of the news that [[spoiler: an eliminated candidate would be returning for the finale after winning a final challenge]], and given their experiences with [[spoiler: [[KnightOfCerebus the]] [[TheScrappy Aqua]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad Team]]]] they were furious and collectively [[spoiler: quit in protest of the decision]]. 3 of the contestants wound up coming to their senses but [[spoiler: Buddy and Mark quit, disqualifying themselves for the at-home prize]]. This, in itself, is a questionable move, but any basis for the action is '''totally''' negated when [[spoiler: Jeremy, one of the 3 remaining contestants, was eliminated via the red line at that week's weigh-in and ''then'' brought himself back into the game via the aforementioned controversial challenge]]. Given the primary motivation was "someone who hasn't been here doesn't deserve it as much as we do", this was absolutely painful to watch in hindsight.

* ViewersAreMorons: Some viewers don't realize that the speed of weight loss seen on the show is the result of the controlled environment provided by a small army of doctors, personal trainers, and other assorted health experts as they guide the contestants through several hours a day of intense exercise. When these viewers, who are holding down full-time jobs and dealing with everyday life instead of exercising 50 hours a week, manage to lose "only" 3 pounds in a week instead of 13, they wonder what went wrong.
** One challenge in Season 12 addressed this by only giving the teams short windows in which to use the gym, simulating the time constraints faced by most people.

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Many contestants have partners that are of normal weight; spme of them also happen to be short, and that's how we get this trope. A fine example would be Season 4's Neil and his girlfriend.
