The second episode of Shedding for the Wedding began with a group trip to Beverly Hills where they met with their wedding planner, Brian, to discuss their wedding cakes. When the couples found out that they were going to have to taste the various cakes, some of the contestants were worried about the extra calories while others were excited about the opportunity to indulge in preparation for their weddings. Brooks and Samantha did eat some of the cake, because as Brooks said, “We can work out an extra half hour in the gym to work that little bit of cake off.” At the end of the contest, Samantha and Brooks were not the only ones to have their cake and eat it too: Taylor and Peter also chowed down on cake.
Keeping to the original cake theme of the episode, this week’s challenge was a cake walk. Each team had to carry their four-tiered cake through the mile and a half obstacle course. If they lose a tier, they get a time penalty, and the team with the longest time would lose privileges to work out with personal trainers Jennifer and Nicky. All of the teams lost at least one tier of their cake, except Laura and Austin, but their carefulness caused them to finish last. Allison and David finished first, and although they had a six minute penalty, they were the winners of the competition and their dream cake. The team the came in last with the time penalties and, therefore, lost privileges to work out with the trainers, was Team Gamers, Peter and Taylor.
The weigh-in elimination revealed that Lindsey and Chase was the team with the highest weight loss percent with 3.45 percent. The Til Death Do Us Part competition came down to Laeresa and Stephen and Taylor and Peter, but in the end, Taylor and Peter had what it took to stay in the competition.
Tune in next week to see who will get their wedding flowers paid for by Shedding for the Wedding.
