The contestants were sent home last week for the final push to lose weight for finale. This is an extremely difficult time for the contestants. There is a lot of pressure to succeed and to keep losing weight and it just gets hard. When you go home real life hits. You now have responsibilities and cannot focus on solely yourself.
This final four seemed to take all of the challenges of home head on. They confronted issues of their past and continued to strive for success. The thing I like most about seeing the contestants at home is that we get to see them in a more personal setting, we get to see how they really are.
The contestants got the traditional visits from the trainers and were able to deal with some issues. The contestants are finally realizing that they are new people. And I love seeing that. They have changed, and being around family and friends continues to enforce that. (more…)

During Week 11 of the Biggest Loser Season 8, Allen Smith was eliminated from the weight loss series after losing 95 pounds while on the show. But even though this Indiana firefighter was voted off the show, his eliminated status is not deterring his drive to continue with his weight loss and complete lifestyle overhaul.
Allen transformed from a 325-pound firefighter to a powerhouse who works out twice a day, fulfills his duty as a community servant as firefighter and county coroner and even manages his own healthy catering service. Just following the November 24 elimination episode, Allen took some time from his incredibly packed life to answer a few questions about his weight loss journey and his continued weight loss progress.
Here’s what he had to say about how his health and finances are interrelated and how he plans on enjoying his Thanksgiving dinner without over-indulging.
This week was this final week on the ranch for the Biggest Loser Season 8 contestants. They all made it the entire way and that is an amazing accomplishment.
This episode really showed us the transformations from the season. In fact, I forgot what each of the contestants looked like before the weight started to come off. They all are going home healthier and truly changed people. But, of course, all the reminiscing takes second place to what matters most right now.
Making it to the final four.
That spunky girl who raced out of the Biggest Loser bus on episode one has transformed into a confident, determined, wiser woman. Rebecca Meyer says her week 10 elimination was due to game play, because she was a “huge threat in the game,” due her to top percentages throughout the season.
That elimination didn’t keep Rebecca down. She is positively thriving at home. With a current weight of 157 pounds, and a new love in her life, Rebecca has become the person she always wanted to be.
Listen now as she tells about her romance with fellow contestant Daniel Wright, a person she says is her best friend. She’ll also talk about who the new Rebecca really is.
