Interview with Ed Brantley, Eliminated Biggest Loser Week 4

If there were ever a love story viewers would want to follow on Biggest Loser, this was it. The great love of Heba and Ed, season 6′s orange team! Ed Brantley’s elimination during Week 4 was hard to watch for the viewers and not an “easy thing to do” according to Ed. He says he didn’t get any updates on Heba’s progress after he left, and hoped he wouldn’t see her for at least two months, meaning that she just kept pushing through. When he and Heba did finally reunite (since all the current contestants have all gone home), he says “you would not even believe it!” When all of us finally get the chance to watch, Ed said “you’ll be up in a chair screaming, doing back flips!”

Since leaving the ranch in mid-May, Ed has lost 90 pounds, and currently weighs 245 pounds (down from his starting weight of 335). He had set a goal for a 32″ pant size, and he is currently wearing a 34″ in shorts. Speaking with Ed, there is no doubt that he’s as dedicated to his weight loss as much as he was during his time on Biggest Loser, if not more so. “I had to bring the ranch home,” Ed explained about instilling the mindsite of complete discipline at home that he had at the ranch. He often remembers “what would Bob think,” or that Heba would remind him not to stop.

Bernie’s Biggest Loser Episode 4 Recap Part II

Get up-to-speed with Bernie’s recap of Part I.

Due to the presidential debate last night, episode 4 of the Biggest Loser was cut short, however tonight the wonderful folks over at NBC aired the second hour of the show. The second half of the show proved to be worth the wait! In the second part of episode 4, we saw Jillian really get tough and rightfully so, her teams weren’t doing the homework that she was assigning, which on the Biggest Loser is just as bad as sneaking snack cakes in the middle of the night!

We also saw Bob take his team to SUBWAY for a quick bite to eat, which is good because trying to find a place to eat on the go in the “real world” isn’t easy. I love the fact that the show is sharing information with viewers about how to make smart choices when eating out.

At the weigh-in, we saw the orange team Ed and Heba fall below the dreaded yellow line. The orange team was then forced to decide who was going home amongst themselves. In the end, Ed wound up going home leaving Heba to continue on her own.

During his at home follow-up, Ed looked Great! I wish him continued success at home and consider him a real contender for this year’s At-Home prize.

He became the victim of one of Biggest Loser: Families‘ first real twists of the season. Ali announced that only one team would fall below the yellow line, and that the elimination would have to take place between the family and send only one person home. jerry skeabeckWith Jerry Skeabeck‘s two-pound weight gain during his Week 3 weigh-in, he and daughter Coleen fell below that dreaded line. It quickly turned into one of the most emotional eliminations ever, comparable of that from season five with brothers Mark and Jay Kruger.

Jerry said it was just as difficult to go through as it was for us at home to watch, and they really did give it some serious thought as to which one of them would leave. He explained that his daughter was “hell-bent” on him staying there. Ultimately, they decided to send Jerry back to Cleveland, home of his beloved Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians. After his follow-up segment at the end of Biggest Loser last night, there’s no doubt that he’s making his daughter very proud, and will likely be around to walk her down the aisle just as she’d hoped.
