Two more bite the dust and in the wake they leave us with Biggest Loser season 10’s final four. It’s probably not a stretch for anyone who has followed this season to have been shocked to see Elizabeth amongst that group, and Mark Pinhasovitch out of the running, being the season’s final elimination.
“It hurt, I deserved to be final four,” said Mark in our interview. He said Elizabeth wasn’t any less worthy, but that he “worked his butt off” all season and believed he was the right guy for the honor.
The episode’s other casualty was Brendan Donovan, who dominated this season’s game play. A loss of five pounds this week in the weigh-in sent Brendan home immediately, placing him under the red line. Trainer Bob Harper has often been heard saying that game players never win, and that seemed to be the case this time.
Listen now to our interview with Brendan and Mark. Brendan owns up to his game play, but also reminds us to remember the moments when his true self shown through. And Mark is primed and ready to win the at-home prize, hear how he’s preparing.
We’re just a few short weeks away from there premiere of Biggest Loser, beginning its 10th season September 21, 2010 on NBC. Already casting for season 11, it’s proof that this show is in the right place and right time as more and more Americans work to overcome the obesity epidemic that is plaguing young, old and everyone in between.
Each season the inspirational show, hosted once again by Alison Sweeney, takes overweight men and women and isolates them at the infamous Biggest Loser Ranch, located outside of Los Angeles, California. For several months (varying each season) contestants work side-by-side with esteemed trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper to lose weight, re-learn how to eat, and overcome the personal, emotional issues that have precluded them from living a healthy life before now.
While the Couples or Families versions of the show have become quite popular, pitting teams of two family members or friends against one another, season 10 goes back to the show’s roots with individuals competing against individuals.
For season 10, Biggest Loser is introducing the “pay it forward” theme – working to help these competing individuals as well as the communities from which they call home. The premiere episode shows trainers Bob and Jillian in seven hometowns for city-wide workouts. Amongst the crowd are three people vying for spots on the show, the two who finish the challenges first will become contestants.
