* ClusterFBomb: The reaction during week 14's weigh in from all four trainers and several contestants in season 11, [[spoiler: when Courtney lost 1 pound, 2 pounds short of what was needed to keep herself on the ranch, therefore automatically eliminating not only her, but her trainer Brett, from the competition]]. The censorship bleeps were heard for about 30 seconds after the final number popped up on the scale.

* GoneHorriblyRight: [[spoiler: Rachel]] winning Season 15. This was the first and only example to date of a contestant beginning the show morbidly obese and actually ending the show ''underweight''. This victory received a lot of backlash, even from the trainers themselves, such as Jillian who appeared flabbergasted at the finale. Thankfully, [[spoiler: Rachel]] gained back 20 pounds after the finale and says that the weight loss, was, indeed, healthy.

* 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 for good and left the ranch, 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.

* 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.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: (Obviously) Non-death examples: [[spoiler: Jim (Season 4), Jerry (Season 4), Mike (Season 12), and Aaron (Season 1)]] were all exemplary, consistent contestants that were completely thrown under the bus by their (usually less capable) team members and eliminated early on, all for gameplay related reasons.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: [[spoiler: Nicole's]] reappearance in Season 7. After being removed from the competition in episode 1, she returned after losing 87 pounds at home. Everyone was freaking out because she had the second highest percentage of weight loss in the entire house and her appearance caused widespread fear and chaos, as well as all sorts of talk of gameplay. However, she lost her immunity at the weigh-in by gaining 5 pounds, and she was swiftly sent home. This is never mentioned in the next episode and the game continues on as it was.

** Matt from Season 2 pulled a similar stunt, but rather than being met with intense anger and animosity like Neil did, Matt's strategy was actually applauded by Caroline Rhea when he lost 26 pounds after intentionally gaining 12 pounds when he was immune the previous week.
