Let me just start off by saying, “Good for Bob!” He pulled his team aside, mainly Vicky and Brady, and asked if there was game play involved in Brady’s 2 lbs. weight loss last week. They concluded that his weight loss was attributed to Brady not eating as often as he should, not sure I’m sold on that conclusion, but oh well.
Contestants then played a game modeled after an amazing book called “Eat This, Not That,” which shares with people the calories behind some of the food choices we make. It was very insightful, and I personally enjoy the book, so I’m glad to see it mentioned on the show.
Now for the DRAMA! Heba and the rest of the Blue team thought it was time to confront Phil on the Black Team about his talk with Brady on the basketball court. I think it was a good thing to have the discussion, but I disagree with how the Blue team went about it. I think the conversation should have been had strictly between Heba and Phil, but that wasn’t the case and in the end I don’t feel anything was really resolved.
The Challenge was a good one this week. Contestants were placed on a pulley system 50 ft. up in the air and forced to support their weight. The Black team had to add an additional 40 lbs. to their overall weight because they lost the “Eat This, Not That” Challenge. In the end, the Blue team won out and as a result were allowed to choose one team member of on the Black team whose weight would not count at the weigh-in.
At Weigh-in the Blue team decided to have Michelle‘s weight not count, which in the end didn’t make much of a difference because she only lost 2 lbs. The rest of the Black team had lower numbers this week, which is sort of to be expected given their big numbers last week. The shocker came when Brady on the Blue team pulled a 13 lbs. weight loss, which is huge, he took out the Black team all by himself!
The Black team went to elimination and after a hard decision decided to sent Phil home. Phil went home honorably and wished his fellow Black Team members the best of luck. Phil’s homecoming was one of the best yet, he renewed his vows to Amy, at the very place he proposed. Phil is looking terrific, and seems to be doing awesome at home!
Well the game is proving to get better and better each week. Be sure to tune in Nov. 11 (Biggest Loser is not airing next week due to the election) as it appears there is going to be a game changing twist!
