Some big changes took place this week on the Biggest Loser ranch. The remaining 10 contestants went into teams of Black vs. Blue. This is an extremely emotional week for these contestants. Some lose their favorite trainer, some lose their partner, some both.
The guy who claimed the only thing he’s good at is food has shown he’s also good at weight loss. Julio Gomez was eliminated during Biggest Loser season eight’s week four, and he left with his head held high and plans to make it happen at home. Julio’s starting weight on the ranch was 407 pounds; today he weighs about 279 pounds (with only 43 pounds lost on the ranch).
Hey everyone, I’m back again for the Week 4 Biggest Loser Recap. First thing noteworthy in this episode is that Tracey is not allowed to work out. At all. That stinks. Not being able to work out is almost a plane ticket home on the Biggest Loser ranch.
In a very good twist, the contestants had to order out for every single meal, after finding the kitchen completely locked down. Learning to eat well while going out is an extremely good skill to have. To go along with the new week comes a new pop challenge. The contestants had to determine which dinner had the fewest amount of calories. The winner was the pink team and they won a year’s supply of groceries. (more…)
In what could easily be called the first game play elimination of the season, Sean Algaiers and Antoine Dove exited the Biggest Loser campus in episode three with as much humility and integrity as any two contestants have ever shown before. Literally taking one for the team, and allowing themselves to be sacrificed for the sake of Shay and partner Daniel, these two returned home to more than prove that this process is entirely possible at home.
Listen now as they describe how any person can make these changes for themselves at home, and how the animosity toward Tracey caused a nose-dive in the contestants’ morale. Then continue reading to learn more about Antoine’s new romance with Alexandra, hear more about the Tracey affect, and the other changes in their lives.
The contestants started off this week with a series of temptations. If a team chose to abandon the use of two world-class trainers for one whole week, they get a two pound advantage at the weigh in. With most teams over or around 550 pounds a .36% is pretty dismal and really no one in their right mind would take it, right? Wrong. Tracey took control this week and took the two pounds without discussing with Coach Mo and faced the wrath of Bob and Jillian.
Hey everyone, I’m back once again for DietsInReview.com for my Biggest Loser 8 recap and reaction.
Right off the bat in this episode, Alison issues the contestants a challenge – lose 150 pounds as a group. Do it and no one goes home, otherwise two people are eliminated. Week two is infamous for producing poor numbers on the scale, so these contestants really had their work cut out for them.
On a better note, Tracey returned to the house from the hospital this week. She isn’t allowed back in the gym yet, but at least she’s on campus. With monitoring her nutrition she still should drop a significant amount of weight since it is her first week. (more…)
He’s back at the ranch and sure to bring even more healthy cooking knowledge! Tune in tonight, September 22, to the second episode of Biggest Loser to see what this attractive chef is serving. Curtis Stone is the Aussie chef who first showed up at Biggest Loser during season 7 with recipes so good it was hard to believe they were good for us. Now he’s back to help the newest cast of Biggest Loser contestants overcome their old habits in the kitchen by introducing healthier tips and tricks that anyone can use to make delicious, healthy meals.
Tonight Curtis also has a pop quiz prepared for the contestants, sure to test their nutrition knowledge. It might only be week two, but we’re hoping to see nothing but right answers.
If you missed his season seven appearance, then you must try these recipes: (more…)
The first elimination of the season is always a tough one – as the contestant doesn’t quite get a chance to prove herself, and there’s concern they didn’t have enough time on the ranch to really effect change in themselves. Unless that person is Alexandra White. She blazed on to the Biggest Loser ranch with a youthful spunk, energy and readiness to do whatever it took. Unfortunately, she fell below the yellow line and was voted off by her castmates. If there were any doubters out there, she proved them wrong last night in her “Where Are They Now” segment, in which she revealed a much leaner, healthier body and a continued go get ’em spirit!
Hear our interview in its entirety with Alexandra, then continue to read more about her journey.
Biggest Loser is back and it seems to be bigger and better. Fifteen new contestants are competing for the title of The Biggest Loser and (the more important part) to get a second chance at life. In the spirit of second chances, Daniel Wright, a season 7 alum, got to come back to compete on this season. I’m glad to see him back and hope he can conquer his weight battle once and for all.
What do you all think of Daniel coming back? (more…)
Executive producer Mark Koops of Biggest Loser calls his trainers, Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels, the “two best trainers in the world.” Few would argue, especially the 100-plus contestants who count themselves amongst the fortunate few who’ve trained with them in America’s most famous gym.
We had a chance to visit with Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels as they prepare for the September 15 premiere of Biggest Loser 8. While filming has wrapped, or is close to it, they’re able to reflect on what is about to be the newest Biggest Loser season.
Listen to a portion of the interview now, and then continue reading to hear more from Bob and Jillian.
