Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

Biggest Loser Recap Season 9 Episode 7 with Amanda Arlauskas

Well after a long dry spell without The Biggest Loser, it’s finally time to find out who will be eliminated from week six, either Cheryl George or Darrell Hough. Unfortunately Darrell dropped the torch and was eliminated from the game.

Alison Sweeney reveals a temptation to the contestants. There are hundreds of cookies on a table with a memory game board. Michael Ventrella and Andrea Hough are the only two contestants that decide to participate. Whichever player finds two golden tickets will win the opportunity to choose one player to have immunity, and also split the remaining contestants in to two teams, blue versus black. Micheal Ventrella ends up winning and gains control of everyone’s fate. Once the teams are decided, Michael gives O’Neal Hampton, Jr. immunity.

Now that the teams are set it is time for the first challenge. Each team must work together to raise their flag up the side of a building. The blue team wins, winning letters from home. This is an emotional loss for the black team as it has been seven weeks since the players have been home, and everyone is missing their family and friends.

The weigh in begins and the anticipation is high as the blue team is “stacked up” with players who are in a better position to lose weight. Together they lose a combined 48 pounds, or 2.70%. The black team looks worried, but they impressively come back to lose a combined total of 41 pounds, or 2.82%. With that, the black team wins the weigh in and the blue team is up for elimination. Michael Ventrella lost the highest percentage, so he is immune from elimination. After four votes, Miggy Cancel is eliminated!

This week had a crazy temptation. I can't believe that Michael ate over 2000 calories in a few minutes. I don't blame him for playing the game, to me his motive is to stay there longer and I do believe he's still in it for the right reason: to lose weight vs. win money. So I see his actions as self-preservation as opposed to intentionally trying to cause problems for the other contestants. I was quite pleased with his huge weight loss and him beating Rudy's weight-loss record. I was surprised that the big calories from the temptation did not seem to slow down his weight loss...I have to wonder if he did actually vomit after the temptation, he looked like he was getting sick from the sweets, so maybe he could have kept those calories from getting into his system. I also have more respect for Michael for finally putting himself first and for not backing down...I realize he caused a lot of waves with his decision but it seemed completely strategic and not at all based on petty behavior as many contestants of the past have done. I don't believe he holds any grudges against anyone.

Jill flew off the handle about the team matchups but she shouldn't have been so discouraged. She has many tricks up her sleeve and if there's anything she's great at it is helping the underdogs win. The tougher the odds are stacked against Jill's team, the more likely her team is to win it seems.

I'm so pleased that Miggy finally seems to have a positive outlook in life. She always seemed very stressed out and like she was constantly fighting with herself and fighting negativity. Her attitude change is very apparent in the follow up.

I also was happy to see that Ashley had gained back 8 *years* of life with just 7 *weeks* of intense training. That is very inspiring...she got back more than a year of life for each week of working out...impressive.

Nice to see that Darrell was able to fit into the jacket he had filmed himself with before going on the show. With guys that big it is sometimes hard to tell how much weight they've lost so that was a good way to prove it, because that jacket looked way too small in the before but seemed about right in the after.

I like Stephanie. She hardly gets any screen time for whatever reason. I am rooting for her because she is always so positive and she seems to be consistent every week. I think she has a good chance of making it to the final four.

I'm happy that O'Neill and Sunshine are going to be on the same team...that is cool. I was unclear about if he had access to trainers for this week or not, he pulled a pretty good number so if he didn't get to be trained this week he didn't let that slow him down any.
