The gentleness that Adam Hurtado exuded on screen during Biggest Loser shown through in our elimination interview with him. Many were devastated by his untimely exit from the game, except Adam. He says things happen for a reason, and is confident that this was the right time for him to leave, calling the silver lining returning to a supportive family and community.
Adam was one of the biggest targets in the game, having won a challenge that awarded him a progressive pound-off advantage. When the blue team tied their elimination votes in episode six, the black team took full advantage of the opportunity to oust one of their strongest competitors. He says he doesn’t hold the vote against anyone and understands they had to do what they had to do. In fact, he says that while on the ranch he developed what will become life-long friendships, noting a lot of respect for those responsible for his exit.
Listen now as Adam talks to us about his “pay it forward” efforts with the Atchison, Kansas community and YMCA, where he’s volunteered to be the chairman of their weight loss competition. He also talks to us about the varied workouts he does with brother and trainer Ryan, as well as how the Biggest Loser Meal Plan has helped him find weight loss success.
WOW what an episode! This week, instead of the notorious face-off week, only ONE player’s loss will count for each team! Talk about pressure! Of course the strategizing starts at the very moment that Ali gives this news to the teams. The real kicker is that the opposing team gets to pick who weighs in! That is just asking for game play. Oh don’t you just love how Ali brings her Days of our Lives drama to Biggest Loser!
At the glorious four seasons, the teams compete in a cooking challenge! I love that! I wish we could have had a cooking challenge. I love to experiment in the kitchen. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t love cooking with Curtis Stone by your side? The Blue team takes the win, over the black team supported by Chef Lorena Garcia, which gives them a 10 second head start in the next challenge.
