This week’s episode starts off with Courtney’s reflections of last week. She only lost two pounds while Jen lost nothing, causing her to be a team of one. She admits there were mistakes made by both of them relaxing too much, causing a disastrous weigh in. Now it is up to her to save herself as well as Brett, because who will he train if she goes home?
There’s a pop challenge right away and it seems pretty easy at first. What is a mile? The teams have fifteen minutes to pace a mile and plant their flag. To the winner goes a night out in Hollywood. The losing teams all have to scrub the ranch. It seems like no one has a clue what to do. They start measuring and what not, but no one is really sure. Turns out the winner was decided by only four feet! For the win, the black team! Hannah gets her night out! But we all know what happened last week when people got some pampering. Read Full Post >
The house is obviously still shaken from theloss of Justin in last week’s episode. Kaylee even steps up to apologize for what went down at the weigh in. Hopefully they all can recover from what transpired and move on with their journeys. What does this week have in store? Let’s find out…
As this episode opens, the contestants are not found in the elimination room, but instead in the gym with the trainers. Be it as it may, Alison is also in the gym so you know something is going on. The collective blue team is now being broken up into four teams, one for each trainer.
Red is Justin, Jen, and Courtney being trained by Brett.
Green is Austin, Ken, and Kaylee being trained by Cara.
Here we are again in the elimination room. Come on Ali, where’s the news? Where’s the mysterious twist? Come on in red team and join up with black. There will only be one team this week, the blue team! Here’s the kicker, if they lose combined more than they did the previous week, 64 pounds, then they are ALL safe.
Dr. H gives a little status update to some of the remaining contestants on their health. This is always a better conversation than the first one they had. Courtney and Marci are doing beyond well. Courtney’s body fat has dropped to that of the average woman and Marci is pretty much already at her goal! Moses had death looming upon him and that date was squashed. Rulon is also starting to regain some of his former athleticism.
Interesting little pop challenge here–one I always enjoy, cooking! Bring in Curtis Stone and Lorena Garcia. They will be judging a cooking competition between everyone who is split into groups of two. They have 30 minutes to whip up a great healthy dish. The prize is the biggest loser meal plan for free through the finale. While there were some great dishes and some, interesting, dishes the two favorites were made by the Jen/Kaylee and Moses/Olivia teams with the latter getting the victory from the chefs!
I’m sure everyone out there is still reeling from Arthur’s eliminationlast week. I know I am. But I’m glad to report he is doing great! I actually met up with him for dinner last night as he is in town to do the Today Show and he has a great positive attitude about it all.
