Wow! Episode 3 was definitely a great one. Contestants went on a road trip to the Grand Canyon, what a terrific trip. The road trip however wasn’t without its obstacles, while headed to the Grand Canyon contestants made a stop at a convenience store to take part in this seasons very first temptation. Contestants had to guess the calories found in some of the quick eats most travelers encounter along their travels. Ed and Heba ended up winning and as a result were rewarded by getting to spend the rest of their trip in a luxurious RV while all the others had to rough it in tents.
This weeks challenge was really neat. Contestants found themselves in kayaks paddling for their chance to win an RV, which is one of the most incredible prizes I’ve ever seen given away on the Biggest Loser. Maybe it was the time they spent in the RV that drove the Orange team to do so well because when the challenge was over we saw Ed and Heba emerge victorious!
The contestants’ trip to the Grand Canyon didn’t last long, they eventually found themselves back on the Biggest Loser Ranch where Bob and Jillian were waiting to kick their butts in the gym. Both Bob and Jillian were not happy with their teams because none of the contestants worked out as hard as they should have while away.
At the weigh-in contestants were thrown a twist. Host Ali Sweeney informed teams that only one team would fall below the yellow line this week instead of the normal two. She then told the contestants that it would be the decision of the team below the yellow line to decide who would go home and who would stay. When the scale finally cam to a stop we saw the yellow team Jerry and Coleen fall below.
After a lot of discussion and a ton of tears they yellow team decided that Jerry would go home. Jerry’s follow-up video looked great, he has continued to lose the weight (70 pounds to date!) and is well on his way to living a long and healthy life. This season has really got me hooked and we’re only three episodes in!
