Coleen’s Biggest Loser Episode 7-4 Recap

Cue the NFL intro music… it’s Super Bowl Week on The Biggest Loser!

The contestants are greeted by Ali who informs them they will be playing a Super Bowl snack trivia game with Australian hottie, I mean– chef, Curtis Stone. The contestants test their knowledge of how many calories are in each common Super Bowl party food. Winning means a visit to their partner at home from Chef Curtis and a 2 pound pass at the next weigh-in. Daniel wins the game for the orange team and David gets a surprise visit from the Take Home Chef himself.

kurt warner biggest loserKeeping with the Super Bowl Theme, NFL MVP Kurt Warner helps Ali kickoff the challenge by informing the contestants they’ll be doing two sprints drills, picking up a football and running it back to the opposite end of the football field and dropping the football off in another player’s bin. The idea is to be the last player standing. Winning this challenge gets you immunity for your team and a guarantee that your partner will return to the ranch. Helen and Joelle battle it out in a footrace for the win. Helen wins the challenge and seals the deal for the pink team to be reunited.

During the last chance workout we see Joelle step up to the plate and Daniel accomplish a 5 minute run on the treadmill. As tough as those workouts can be, this week it wasn’t enough to keep the brown team and orange team above the yellow line. It comes down to a matter of who wants to be there as the teams chose to eliminate orange.

I’m so happy to see that both Daniel and David are doing excellent at home. David has stopped smoking and Daniel is running like the wind! Both have plans to shock America at the finale. Hear what else they are up to in their DietsInReview.com interview.

I have to tell you that I think it’s about time Joelle stepped up to the plate and got it going! It totally bothered me that Daniel had to leave, and I believe he had a chance to stay if it had not been for David. I believe that Daniel will make it and I can’t wait to see him at the end of the show when everyone comes on!!! He is very inspirational!

I will miss him on the show as he was one of my favorites. I can’t wait to see how the contestants that have come back how they actually did at home!

Great job as usual Coleen!

I’m sad because Daniel was my favorite but I’m counting on him to win the at home prize. He’s such an inspiration and I’m sure he’ll continue to do a great job. Hopefully David will do the same.
Thanks for the recap Coleen. You always do a great job and continue to inspire.

Hey Colleen, thanks for another great recap. I too was sad to see Daniel go, but overall I loved this episode. I’ve grown quite fond of Tara and Filipe and I think that Blaine is turning into a cutie. I think it was really awesome of the producers to send Blaine home to see his wife give birth to his newborn son…that really was the right call for the producers because you can’t take back missing something like that. I’m glad to see Joelle kick it into gear; not sure if almost being eliminated or fearing Carla’s wrath was what flipped the “I’m going to do this” switch on in her head, but I’m glad she’s actually giving it 100% finally. Tara continues to impress me; she is turning into a machine; I honestly think she will make it to the finals and has a really great chance of winning this thing. The brown team is a bit too sappy if you ask me. I like them as people but this whole overwhelming sadness kind of annoys me. Getting in shape and losing weight is vitally important to their health and well-being, but certainly they aren’t going to fall over dead the day they get sent home from the ranch; the way they cry about it makes you think they believe the ranch is the only possible alternative to death for them. It might have actually helped the brown team develop more emotional stamina had they gotten split up in the first week like the other teams did. It is possible to get into shape even if you’re morbidly obese and even without going to “fat camp”. A friend of mine lost over 200lbs just walking every day and dieting with Nutrasystem, so it really is possible to do on your own (although it took him two years). Finally, I was pretty impressed with the overall weight loss numbers this week. It is kind of crazy that losing 12 lbs in one week is not enough to stay above the yellow line…looking at it any other way, losing 12 lbs in a week through diet and exercise is impressive. Seeing several women pulling double digits was pretty amazing too.
