Meet the Final Four in the Biggest Loser Season 10 Episode 11 Recap

It’s week 11! Wait, really? Yeah it is! I almost forgot what week it was, but really after makeover week everything seems to blend together! So this week Alison drops the bomb that the deadly RED line is back and that two people are going home, which will whittle down the house to the final four. Every time that red line rears its ugly head everyone in the house goes BANANAS! You see crazy workouts, crazy focus and attention to every morsel. It really takes everything up a few notches. Even Bob and Jillian get the red line fever and they start making every single rep a last chance workout.

They had a rewarding pop challenge where Brendan pocketed $10,000! I like when they have the challenges in stages and after each stage one challenger is out, it definitely gives different people advantages in each stage. I thought it was really awesome of Brendan to give $1,000 of it to the Warriors in Pink. I know that you viewers out there are wondering where did Mr. Nice guy come from, last week a car for Patrick and this week cash for breast cancer. The truth is, everyone has more than one side to them and unfortunately for Brendan up until now we had only seen the “other” side.  I don’t think it’s going to win him any votes, but at least America can see he is not all about the game.

The second challenge they had boasted the prize of a one-pound advantage, which at this stage in the game is almost like immunity. Ada worked hard to win that prize.

At the weigh-in it was a tense scene. The girls had great numbers, considering the lateness in the season, and Ada was really helped by having the one-pound advantage. When Brendan weighed in I think the world went silent. I don’t think anyone saw that coming (a loss of only five pounds), but as Bob has said and is frequently quoted “game players never win.” He was kind in his departure and I know that we all wish him the best of luck because in the end it is about being healthy and getting their lives back, not about who wins or loses because really… if you can beat the weight, we all win!

When Mark fell below the yellow line I already knew the outcome, ahem, a few blogs ago didn’t I say he should watch his back? But I had hoped that Patrick had a change of heart after the talk he had with Bob following Jesse’s elimination. I wasn’t surprised though when he voted Mark home, but I was super sad for Mark because he put trust in people. I think what really makes me sad, more than any of the game play, is that many people go on this show with low self-esteem, low confidence and low trust in others, then you have this amazing experience with these people that NO else one in the WORLD understands and you want to be able to share it with them and trust them, but you can’t.

I am glad I went home the week the game play became apparent and intense, I don’t think I would have done well with it at all! So with that said, we have our final 4: Elizabeth, Ada, Frado and Patrick. Marathon next week? Then finale? WOW!

I??ve enjoyed this season of the BL for a few reasons,
1. I like most of the contestants
2. Good to see game play is not working for the ones who play it hard
3. Ada.
Ada is much younger than me, but she reminds me of myself in many ways. I was put down by my family,
Told I was not worth anything by people who are supposed to be your biggest supporters, your family. Ada has had it the hardest, but in her hard work, tears and her ??true? personality showing through she has gained a family in BL, and many fans of it I??m sure. Of all the contestants that have been on this show, she for me has been the most inspiring. Not because she was the biggest or had the most weight loss?because she??s had to overcome so much in her young life. Jillian has done wonders for her. The talks she has with are very up front, not giving her sympathy but the strength to fight and move on in her life, which is what Ada needs.
I??m routing for you Ada! You go girl. You get the finals my vote is for you!!!

I, like many people, have referred to this season as "Weight-loss Survivor" out of disgust. This TV show proclaims to be about changing people's lives for the better by working hard and facing the difficult truth. Instead, this season has shown America that manipulation and lying are the best ways to get your prize. I mean, because of gameplay, someone who has fallen below the yellow line more than 70% of her weigh-ins will now be a final four member? Has that ever happened, and should it be allowed to happen again? I think The Biggest Loser should take strong measures at the beginning of next season to discourage game play and encourage true heart and strength.

Gameplay is inevitable when $250,000 is on the line. But seeing someone as likeable as Patrick stab two people in the back because he was afraid of them taking his shot at $250,000? It is hard to believe it was just last season when the rallying cry was "steel sharpens steel."

I wish Bob and Jillian could have made Patrick, Brendan, and Frado realize that by having more challenging people around, it will force you to take more responsibility and action to change. It will make you work harder and therefore get healthier faster. If you surround yourself with the most hard working people, your chance of success after the show will be greater because you more than likely learned more and worked harder for longer.
