Coleen’s Biggest Loser Episode 7-7 Recap

Tonight on the Biggest Loser, Ali surprised the contestants with yet another pop challenge. This weeks pop challenge had the contestants searching for the keys to success.

No key meant no gym, so the contestants were off hiking up and down the hill over and over again until finally the pink team found one that fit the lock and the brown team with “lucky try number 9”. The brown and pink teams will have the gym all to themselves this week. (more…)
