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.
Apparently a player who has been eliminated will rejoin… black team’s choice! We’ll find out more later… (more…)
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!
The competition between the two teams is now even: 7 on 7. But guess what? Time to go home! Everyone will be going home for two weeks. They all seem really happy and excited to go home, but temptations abound. If I were in their position, I would not want to go home until my journey was close to being done. I feel like this would disrupt my groove How will it affect the contestants?
