Biggest Loser Season 9 Week 8 Recap with Amanda Arlauskas

Eliminated last week was Miggy Cancel, scoring O’Neal Hampton a spot on the blue team with his daughter. The two of them seem inseparable and to really need each other on the ranch.

Alison tells the contestants that this week is “work week.” This means that each contestant will be working a full-time, 40-hour job this week. Each team will be transported to downtown Los Angeles for one week to help with local food banks and Feeding America. Not only does this take away from precious workout time, but the gym will also go from being open 24 hours a day to only open from 6am-7:30pm.

Through the stress of work week, the teams still have to work together in order to succeed. At this week’s challenge, each team had to pull a semi-tractor trailer while collecting crates. The blue team crossed the finish line and solved the puzzle at the end first winning a year’s worth of free groceries.

Last chance workout is especially intense because Bob and Jillian know they only have a limited amount of time in the gym with the contestants before the lights go out and the gym closes.

At the weigh-in, the black team comes up short losing a combined 32 pounds compared to the blue team’s impressive 50 pounds. Because of the lower percentage of weight loss, the black team falls below, and ultimately ends up sending Cheryl George home.
