Mike Morelli’s Biggest Loser 8.4 Recap

biggest loser kitchenHey everyone, I’m back again for the Week 4 Biggest Loser Recap. First thing noteworthy in this episode is that Tracey is not allowed to work out. At all. That stinks. Not being able to work out is almost a plane ticket home on the Biggest Loser ranch.

In a very good twist, the contestants had to order out for every single meal, after finding the kitchen completely locked down. Learning to eat well while going out is an extremely good skill to have. To go along with the new week comes a new pop challenge. The contestants had to determine which dinner had the fewest amount of calories. The winner was the pink team and they won a year’s supply of groceries.

It came down to Allen from the green team and Daniel from orange. Daniel ended up hanging around longer and guaranteed immunity for himself and Shay for another week.

With his teammate out of commission, it was up to Coach Mo to pull the weight for the team. During the last chance workout, it looked like Mo hurt himself. Not looking good for one of my favorite contestants up to this point.

At the weigh in, Daniel and Shay lost a total of 5 pounds A very smart game-play move. They said it wasn’t, but it was, believe me, not losing weight doesn’t just happen. Shay continued to want Tracey out of the house and got mad when the purple team lost enough weight to be safe. In the end, it came down to Julio from the black team, and Danny and Liz from the brown team. The rest of the house voted to keep the brown team in the game. And my favorite team is still alive and kicking!

That’s all from this episode! See you all next week. Best in health.
